The Versa 3 will be more or less larger with a 1.58-inch display with a 336 x 336 resolution display.

Fitbit Ver2sa 3 v Versa 2: Smartwatch features
Smart assistants are also in play here on both watches, except on the Versa 3 you’re getting an extra assistant to tap into. Fitbit has announced its adding Google Assistant, though it won’t be rolling out until Winter 2020, so it will be a bit of a wait before Versa 3 users can make use of it. And the other Versa 3 feature that isn’t supported on the Versa 2 is the ability to take calls on the watch when connected to Bluetooth.
Fitbit Versa 3 v Versa 2: Price
The coming of the Versa 3 is likely to see the Versa 2 disappear from Fitbit’s own site. But it doesn’t mean it will disappear from third-party retail sites like Amazon so it’s likely to still be up for grabs for a while yet.
The Versa 2 was priced at $199.95 at launch, while the Versa 3 will go on sale for $229. It is coming at the same price as the Versa 2 in the UK but will cost more in the US.
Fitbit Versa 3 v Versa 2: Battery life
These two watches match up when it comes to battery life. Whether people choose for the Versa 2 or Versa 3, you’re getting the promise of 6+ days battery. Moreover, the Versa 3 gets over the Versa 2 is new fast charging technology. It has a new magnetic charger that will get 24 hours of battery off just 12 minutes of charge.
So, it is sure that the Fitbit Versa 3 is a better all-round smartwatch. GPS is a biggie if people want more in the way of sports tracking while that Fitbit has shown it can put a smart assistant on a smartwatch and make it work. Therefore, the Versa 3 makes some pretty significant changes that should make it the smartwatch worth paying a little extra for if you have the choice.
