Long-lasting battery

The Fitbit Versa Lite is meant to be worn around the clock, so it can track both your daytime activity and your sleep patterns. Luckily, you don't need to charge it daily. With normal use, it can last over four days before it needs to be recharged. The Versa Lite comes with a charger, though if you like to keep an extra one at work or in your bag, you can purchase one separately. The charger is a cradle that holds your Versa Lite securely, and it plugs into a USB port. Plan on it taking about two hours to fully charge the Versa Lite. Avoid temperature extremes while charging.

There are some ways you can maximise your Fitbit Versa Lite's battery life. The screen on your Versa Lite will turn on every time you turn your wrist towards you; but you can turn that feature off it the screen is lighting up much more often than you want. You can use the settings app on the Versa Lite to lower your screen's brightness level. You can turn off the notifications and reminders that you don't really need. Connected GPS uses a lot of battery; turn it off if you don't really need it. Animated watch faces take more battery power; so if you're trying to save battery then stick with a static one.
