Fitbit Eating Garmin’s Lunch With The $200, No-GPS But With-Music, ‘Versa’.

Click to access “MarketWatch” for Fitbit.

This is beyond amazing and highly depressing. The Fitbit Versa does not warrant this level of interest and support. They have sold 1 million units — within a month! Sacré bleu.

How Fitbit outmaneuvers and outsells Garmin, on a consistent basis, is pretty incredible. It is all marketing.

90% of those that buy Fitbit have not ever heard of Garmin.

To be fair Fitbit got this right. No GPS, but music — and at $200.

The Garmin Forerunner 645, with GPS, is twice that!

So, if you don’t want GPS, this is quite the watch for $200 — given that it has 3 gyroscopes and an altimeter.

However, Fitbit stock is still in the doghouse. Garmin has done much, much better.
