Moreover, the Active 2 comes with ECG sensor and inbuilt GPS that the Versa 2 lacks. Thus, the Active 2 with ECG can help you detect irregular heart rhythms which can be a sign of a more serious heart problem.

    And with inbuilt GPS the Active 2 is a more convenient device that lets you track outdoor activities effortless including seeing your pace in real-time unlike the Versa 2 that must connect to device GPS to have this features.

    Although, the Versa 2 comes with pulse Ox that can help you see how well your body utilizes oxygen, this features comes handy for climbers and for more insightful sleep tracking.

Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 vs Fitbit Versa 2: Which is Better?

These two are no doubt fantastic choices especially for fitness minded folks looking for a high-end comprehensive fitness tracker that can help improve your fitness level significantly.

However, the Active 2 is a more comprehensive smartwatch that’s more equipped than the Versa 2. On the other hand, the Versa 2 with a longer battery life is better choice for individuals involved in extreme workout activities. Moreover, the Versa 2 is cheaper than both versions of the Active 2 which sort of makes it a better deal.
