Fitbit Sell More than a Million Versa Smartwaches

Fitbit has reportedly sold more than one million Versa watches, which should put the company back in the game, at least for now.

The not-so-hot launch of Fitbit Ionic, coupled with a few slowdowns in production, took Fitbit on a downward patch, but the release of the excellent Fitbit Versa proved to be a really good move for the company.

Furthermore, Fitbit seems to aim at the mass market, but it’s not just a hollow term. They have identified a new type of customer that it’s not being looked at by other companies. We’re talking, of course, about women.

Sure, they can wear regular smartwatches that are designed to be unisex, but most of them don’t have specific features. Fitbit changed all that with the Versa, and by upgrading the official app to incorporate options for women.
"One million is a good number"

Undoubtedly, one of the main reasons for the good Fitbit Versa sales is the low price. One million units are nothing to sneeze at, and the company has good reason to think that the trend will continue.

“The positive response to Versa shows that we are filling this void and well positions us to gain share of the fast-growing smartwatch market. The engagement we’ve seen with our new female health tracking feature further demonstrates the value our users see in being able to get a more comprehensive look at their overall health and wellness, in a single place, in a way that other available cycle tracking tools cannot,” explained James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.

Fitbit is betting a lot of female health tracking, and they have the numbers to prove it. Granted, the company still needs to move forward and not get complacent. It’s likely that the partnership with Google will be expanded, and that third-party developer will continue to expand the app store.

(NYSE: FIT), the leading global wearables brand, today announced that it has shipped more than one million Fitbit Versa™ devices since general availability began on April 16, demonstrating strong consumer demand for a well-designed health and fitness-focused smartwatch with long battery life and broad compatibility, at an affordable price point. Additionally, Fitbit announced that more than 2.4 million users have already used its new female health tracking feature, which became available to all Fitbit app users last month.
“With Fitbit Versa, we are delivering on our promise to offer a true mass appeal smartwatch with engaging new features. The positive response to Versa shows that we are filling this void and well positions us to gain share of the fast-growing smartwatch market,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit. “The engagement we’ve seen with our new female health tracking feature further demonstrates the value our users see in being able to get a more comprehensive look at their overall health and wellness, in a single place, in a way that other available cycle tracking tools cannot.”
Within the first two weeks that female health tracking was made available to iOS and Windows users, more than one million users began using this feature. Now, with cross platform availability for Android users as well:

More than 2.4 million users have added the feature to their Fitbit app
1.8 million users have added at least one period to the calendar
More than 500,000 users have added two or more retrospective periods
Nearly 700,000 users have logged one or more symptoms

With female health tracking, Fitbit users can better understand their overall health and wellness by accessing their data all in one place. Combined with the user’s sleep and activity data, Fitbit is providing a way for its users to gain a better understanding of how their cycle impacts other aspects of their health and wellness, while also potentially creating one of the largest databases of female health.
Fitbit continues to see growth in apps and clock faces built for Fitbit OS. Through its software development kit (SDK), more than 18,000 developers have joined the Fitbit developer community and over 900 apps and clock faces have been built. Fitbit smartwatch users also have new options to help manage their health directly from the wrist, with new apps and clock faces from partners like One Drop, Sickweather and Walgreens.
