Fitbits are not a new thing.

Though Fitbit has been around for a while, the product has improved tremendously from its first iteration. There are now a variety of unique wristbands and watches that offer so many helpful tools to keep your fitness levels at their highest.

Our personal favorite happens to be the Fitbit Versa, a health and fitness smartwatch with all sorts of beneficial features.

1. You Can Use It for Just About Everything

When we mentioned this baby came packed with a variety of beneficial features, we weren't joking. You can get text message and calendar notifications, store 300 plus songs, connect GPS, access your favorite apps, and even use it to make payments when you're out and about. Not to mention, it has a four-day battery life.

There's really nothing this marvelous piece of technology can't do for you. Ranging from $199.95 - $229.95, you definitely get quite a lot of bang for your buck.

2. It Works as a Personal Trainer

When you're a woman on the go, finding time to work out is tough. You're going to use your free time to catch up on sleep or work, not hit up the gym. So you need that extra push to get you out the door.

Lucky for you, Fitbit Versa allows you to set personalized reminders that'll encourage you to stay active, get hydrated, stick to a sleep schedule, and so much more. Sticking to your fitness goals has never been easier.

Whether you're weightlifting, hiking, biking, running, or swimming, this trendy piece of tech lets you track your specific workouts and gives you post-workout summaries. Does it get any better than that?

3. It's Totally Trendy

We know the Fitbit Versa is so much more than a stylish accessory, but we have to talk about how trendy it actually is.

You can wear it with just about anything and it comes in a wide variety of colors, so you can always switch up your band depending on what you're wearing.

We don't know of any other piece of wrist gear that's as fashionable and useful as the Fitbit Versa.

4. It Can Help Calm You Down During a Stressful Day

Stress happens. Some of us are better at dealing with it than others, but that still doesn't mean it's easy to manage.

One of our favorite features on the Fitbit Versa is the guided breathing sessions. When you feel yourself starting to crumble under the weight of it all, find your moment of calm through your breath with the help of this feature.

As far as we're concerned, there's nothing 30 seconds of deep breathing can't fix.

5. You Can Now Track Your Period

Recently, the Fitbit Versa has been updated with features that specifically address women's health issues. Thanks to this stunning piece of tech, you'll be able to track your period, record your symptoms, and compare your cycles to make sure everything is running smoothly. This feature will allow you to become better acquainted with your overall health and understand what's normal and what's not during the menstrual cycle.

You'll also be given the ability to access articles that discuss ovulation, fertility, and common misconceptions centered around women's health. In an interview with Forbes, Dr. Katherine White mentions how important it is for women to better understand their menstrual cycle.

"The nuances of the menstrual cycle have not been as widely studied across populations as have other areas in healthcare. This exciting development by Fitbit could help potentially create one of the largest databases of menstrual health metrics in the world, providing healthcare and research professionals with an unprecedented ability to study menstrual cycles and women's health with real world data."
