Yes, Fitbit Versa 3 has a built-in speaker and microphone , as a definite product improvement over the previous version – Fitbit Versa 2. Fitbit versa 3 is a fitness tracker that falls under the category of wearables. The Versa 3 version is based on Fitbit operating system 5.0. The latest version of Fitbit operating system has in-built support for a speaker and a microphone as a way to be compatible with voice assistant apps, namely, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.


Presence of speaker on the Versa 3 allows you to issue commands to the Amazon Alexa assistant. Speakers also allow you to interact with the voice assistant for a variety of practical tasks such as replying to messages, setting alarms, bringing up weather status, and a whole lot of features possible on Alexa on Google Assistant.

However, do note, that you will still be unable to answer calls through a Versa 3 watch, until you have the Fitbit OS 5.1 or higher. The current firmware version for the Versa 3 smart watch is 5.2.1. So, if you have been updating the firmware on the Versa 3 smart watch as and when the updates are rolled out by Fitbit, the speakers on the Versa 3 smart watch should stand you good company while answering calls.

This also means that the ability to answer calls through the Fitbit Versa 3 devices is now available through the latest firmware. Yes, I am talking about the Fitbit OS firmware update 5.2.1 for the Versa 3 and the Fitbit Sense smart watches. You could pick the call and answer through the mic and speaker on the Versa 3 watch itself. That is one good feature, and the one that had been awaited for quite some time. Good going Versa 3 smart watch.
