How to Answer Calls on Fitbit Versa 2


The Fitbit Versa 2 is a feature-packed smartwatch, extending the device’s usefulness far beyond that of a simple health and fitness tracker. One of the more useful features on the device is the ability to answer or decline phone calls that come in to your paired iPhone or Android device directly on your Fitbit Versa 2. Note that you can only accept or decline phone calls through your Fitbit device, and you can’t actually talk to people through the smartwatch.
