The Fitbit Versa 4 and Fitbit Sense 2 have leaked online – and we now have some idea of what to expect from the two smartwatches.
The Versa 3 and Sense – which share most of the same visual hardware and design cues – were launched back in 2020, so are long-overdue an update.
Now a report by 9to5Google has revealed leaked photos (below) of their successors, and some details of features we might see.
The two shots published by 9to5Google purport to show the two smartwatches – with the Fitbit Sense case sporting a metallic bezel used for taking ECG.

The devices don’t seem to have changed much in terms of design – and the report indicates that bands from the older devices will work on the new ones. So, visually, this seems a minimal update.
However, the shots do show a physical button on the right hand side, rather than a touch-sensitive haptic zone. We found that hit and miss on the previous Versa 3/Sense, so we’d pleased to find something a little more reliable.
That’s the only information so far – so with very little appearing to change in terms of design and hardware, we’ll be hoping for some juicy new features.
We've had an inkling a successor was coming after references to the smartwatches were found in the Android Fitbit app's source code.
Fitbit has been active at launching new software features across its line – and the existing Versa range (all the way to Versa 2) just received the continuous, passive ECG monitoring. That’s great for users of Fitbits past and present, but it will be interesting to see the kinds of features the Versa 4/Sense 2 can boast when they launch.
So what about release dates. The same report says that Fitbit is targeting a spring 2022 launch. Time is ticking.
