I wasn't sure what to expect when Fitbit announced the Versa Lite smartwatch . It's supposed to be a pared-back iteration of last year's Versa , which itself was already a watered-down version of the company's first true smartwatch, the Ionic . For $200, the Versa was actually a pretty compelling mix of an Apple Watch-inspired design, capable fitness tracking and a robust operating system at a reasonable price.

It brings over most of my favorite features from the more expensive watch, but it might be too "lite" even for the first-time smartwatch buyers the company is targeting.
