The Versa has a lot of features, but the setup is time-consuming and often results in inconveniences like the pinching of the wrist. Experts say it’s a fantastic option, especially for people who want to see results on an easily readable screen. To enable GPS tracking, the device must be paired with a phone. The charging feature requires the Versa to be popped out of the band.
