What’s the Difference?

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4 Features Compared

  1. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4: Design

  2. Whatever your definition of outstanding design is, there’s no doubt that each of these three watches is a decent wear that’s very much stylish and elegant.

    However, the Apple watch 4 with a wider display despite having a moderately sized case that’s not bulky (although the versa 2 and Active have smaller case size.) allows you to see more at a glance. Its infographic watch face display up to 8 complications which allows you see quite more at a glance than you would on the other two.

    The Apple watch 4 is also quite slimmer than the Active and even slimmer than the Versa 2 which makes it sleeker and leaves it with a more charming appearance. Although these three still are very sleek when compared to the average smartwatch.

  3. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4: Storage/Media

  4. The Apple watch 4 has the highest storage capacity that allows you take more of your files with you. Although, the Versa 2 and Active both have 4GB out of which about 2.5GB is available for storing your favorite files onboard.

    The Versa 2 has a microphone which supports Amazon Alexa compared to the Samsung’s Bixby and Apple’s Siri – All three voice assistant platform are relatively very outstanding in helping you be more productive. But, I personally think Amazon Alexa is only second to Google Assistant.

  5. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4: Fitness Tracking

  6. Undoubtedly, these three are some of the very best choices as far as health and fitness tracking is concerned. Each of these three is equipped with just the right sensors to help track your active life.

    However, the Apple watch 4 with ECG tracking, accidentally fall detection and loaded with intuitive fitness tracking features is a more comprehensive fitness tracker than the other two. With ECG tracking enabled on the Apple watch 4, it can help you detect atrial fibrillation – a form of irregular heart rhythm. Although, the latest Galaxy watch active 2 features ECG tracking.

    The Apple watch 4 and Active with inbuilt GPS are better smartwatches for tracking outdoor activities such as location and real-time pace than the Versa 2 which lacks inbuilt GPS. Although, you can still enjoy GPS tracking features with the Versa 2, but you’ll have to connect to a nearby phone GPS which can be quite inconvenient if you’re running outside.

    The Versa 2 is equipped with Pulse ox sensor which comes handy in helping track your blood oxygen level – a very important factor for pro athletes looking to be more productive. Premium workout plans will be available on the Versa 2 which can help you achieve more fitness goals. Although, you’ll have to subscribe to enjoy this feature.

    The Active is preloaded with 39 sport modes which is more than the Versa 2’s 15. This makes it more likely your favorite workout will be featured on the Active.

  7. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4: Battery Life

Each of these three has got a fair battery life that lets you go over a day on a single charge. Although, the Versa 2 with a more improved longer battery life than its predecessor will see you through about 5 days from a single charge which is more impressive than the Active with about 2-4 days and even more impressive than the Apple watch 4 with just over a day battery life on regular usage.

This makes the Versa 2 a better smartwatch for fitness enthusiasts engaged in extreme workout activities.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active vs Fitbit Versa 2 vs Apple Watch 4: Which is Better?

This three are clearly some of the very best smartwatches on the market. Each of these looks very stylish and elegant and is well equipped to track your active life and improve your productivity.

However, the Apple watch 4 is a better smartwatch for iPhone users as it doesn’t support android devices. Apple hasn’t taught it wise to make their smartwatches work with android devices. Moreover, the Apple watch 4 is the major reason Apple as a brand has continued to dominate the smartwatch market with a great margin.

On the other hand, The Versa 2, though lacks inbuilt GPS is a more comprehensive fitness tracker than the Active considering it has an impressive long battery life that lets you days on a single charge and features lots of intuitive fitness tracking features that can help improve your fitness level.

Here’s how they stack up;

APPLE WATCH SERIES 4 The most stylish with most sophisticated design and a comprehensive fitness tracker. The best choice for iPhone users.
FITBIT VERSA 2 A comprehensive fitness tracker with a long battery life that lets you go days on a single charge.
SAMSUNG GALAXY WATCH ACTIVE One of the best from Samsung, a comprehensive fitness tracker and a decent wear for all occasions.
Our Pick

We choose the Versa 2 – its compact, stylish, loaded with lots of fitness tracking features, has a long battery life and the inclusion of Amazon Alexa makes it a more productive device.
