Fitbit Versa No Warranty

In June 2018 I had bought myself the Fitbit Versa and I paid $200.00 for this watch. This was my gift to myself for completing my cancer treatment.

At that time I wrote a review on here about the watch & how much I liked it. If you want to read that review it is here:

I liked the size of the Versa and I could see it good at that point the battery was lasting 5 days and that was a big plus.

I had to contact Fitbit this week for the first time about my Versa because now the battery last 1 – 1 1/2 days at the most. I only use for tracking my activity and my sleep. There is nothing else causing it to drain down so fast.

They informed me there is nothing they can do but give me 25% off a new watch.

I informed them I think at this point I will NOT be buying another Fitbit product. I will be trying out some other brands that advertise the same thing or better at a cheaper price.

Paying $200.00 for something that lasted for 13 months is a JOKE. If a company can not warranty their products for something like this they need to change the wording on the battery life to say “warning after this product is about 10 months old expect for the battery to decline.”

My original review of this product was good but I will no longer support any Fitbit products.

  1. I purchased a Fitbit a few years ago for roughly the same price, having fallen victim to their marketing hype. During the following summer, the glue attaching the strap to the screen melted. Suffice to say, I won’t be buying another either.

  2. That is pretty bad. I picked up a high end Garmin at Christmas, which I currently only use to track my running, but it has all of those other functions. Good luck finding a replacement.
