Fitbit’s affordable new smartwatch nails the basics and that's more than enough — for now

The Versa Lite Edition is an affordable and attractive smartwatch, but it may be worth considering its less expensive fitness bands that offer many of the same features.

But over the course of the last week, I've added yet another item to my morning checklist: viewing my sleep data.

It's part of a big effort by the company to bring more users onto its platform as it trails behind Apple's lead in the global smartwatch market.

And the Versa Lite's somewhat limited functionality can make it difficult to recommend over Fitbit's less expensive bands like the $149.95 Charge 3 and $99.95 Inspire HR.

Fitbit finally nailed this with the original Versa, and thankfully it didn't make many changes with the Versa Lite Edition.

The screen on the Versa isn't quite square, nor is it round — similar, in that regard, to the Apple Watch — which makes it ideal for displaying information.
