Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 have a Wear OS 3-inspired UI, however they lack offline music storage, playback, and control while Wi-Fi is off.
Both the Sense 2 and Versa 4 have WiFi, according to Fitbit’s Specs website. Additionally, it claims “deactivated, cannot be turned on.”
How to connect Fitbit to Wi-Fi? Sense 2, Versa Lite Edition, and Versa 4 don’t have this feature.
Wi-Fi allows “faster software updates” than Bluetooth, the only choice for new smartwatches. Fitbit touts Wi-Fi connectivity for downloading songs and apps. Bluetooth downloads/transfers apps (and watch faces) slowly.
Sense 2 and Versa 4 lack music options. In addition to on-wrist phone conversations (coming later) and Amazon Alexa, neither product page mentions music playback.
Deezer isn’t accessible on Fitbit Sense 2, Versa Lite Edition, or Versa 4. Pandora’s support page claims “This feature isn’t available on Fitbit Versa Lite Edition or Fitbit Versa 4,” therefore Sense 2 is probably missed. The Charge 5 lacked Spotify controls, unlike earlier models and the original Sense.
Without on-device storage, it’s unclear if you can regulate phone sounds. Play/pause music controls and Bluetooth headphones aren’t mentioned in the Sense 2 or Versa 4 manuals. This should be in a future update.
The lack of these features hurts the Sense 2 and Versa 4 as smartwatches, especially since they only support Alexa and not Google Assistant. On-wrist money, Google Maps, notifications, text and call replies are included.
Fitbit is focusing the Sense 2 and Versa 4 (coming this week) on health and fitness with smartwatch-like features. Any lack of performance makes the new watches less of a next-generation successor. It makes upgrading to a Pixel Watch easier.
