The Fitbit Versa supports tracking for almost 20 exercises

Once upon a time, Fitbit trackers were merely high-tech step counters, but they have drastically evolved. The Fitbit Versa is a full-on smartwatch, and along with personalized, on-screen coaching, it supports tracking for 19 different exercises. The best part is that you don't even need your phone on you.

  • Running
  • Biking
  • Swimming
  • Weight training
  • Interval workouts
  • Workouts (nondescript)
  • Spinning
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Tennis
  • Stair climbing
  • Pilates
  • Circuit training
  • Bootcamp
  • Yoga
  • Elliptical
  • Walking
  • Martial arts (nondescript)
  • Kickboxing

Not all exercises are automatically tracked

If you're performing a specific exercise from the above list that you want tracked, your best option is manually enable tracking for it on the Fitbit Versa. The Versa does feature Fitbit's SmartTrack tracking, but it's only for select exercises, which include the following:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Aerobic workout
  • Elliptical
  • Outdoor bike
  • Sports
  • Swimming

Don't see your favorite exercise on the list?

If you're into some far-out workouts, that doesn't mean the Versa can't help. Just choose the exercise on the list that most closely resembles what you're doing.

For example, if you're playing racquetball, choose tennis. Tennis isn't as high-intensity, but you get the idea. That being said, you can also just let SmartTrack do its work and it should automatically detect "Sports".
