Fitbit, the popular wearable fitness band maker has been around for quite a few years now, even before smartwatches were launched. In 2016, Fitbit bought Pebble to focus its efforts in the smartwatch space. It has released the Iconic and Versa smartwatches, and now, Fitbit looks geared for the Versa 2. We have come across Fitbit Versa 2 leak, and here is everything you need to know.
