On The Mat With Mari: Getting Physical With My Coworker, Exciting News, & Is The Fitbit Versa Tattoo Friendly?

I recently received the Fitbit Versa for my birthday and I absolutely love it except for one "minor" hiccup...
I don't think that it likes my tattoos...lets backtrack a bit. I received the versa a little over a week ago and was super excited to use it but noticed that it would lose the connection with my heart rate. I let it slide but when I looked at my sleep insight, it would state that I only slept for about an hour. This lead me to believe that it completely lost the connection with my hr and could not give me my sleep insight.

I started to google this issue and came across all these posts...
FML!!!
I called customer service and honestly they weren't any help besides the typical IT answer "let's try to restart it" really Becky?

I started to wear the watch on a area of skin that was ink free which seemed to help unless it slipped down to a tattooed region. I then thought that perhaps I should wear it, inside my forearm which was bare or on my other wrist which was less tattooed. For a watch that costs around $250.00 (special edition version) it should not be causing me this much stress.

Ready for the plot twist...

I tweeted to fitbit the other day, that I was going to talk about this issue on my site and I kid you not...that bitch is working now. Is "the man" watching or is it just a coincidence? I have no idea but I am just happy that all systems are a go.

Unfortunately, it is still not consistent and I honestly believe that they dropped the ball when they added only one light in the back for the hr detection, instead of their usual 2-3 lights. I never experienced this issue with my Charge 2 which had two lights and some people even stated that they used an epoxy sticker on their versa which has helped.

So does it work with tattoos? I have no idea ha!

Watch my vlog below for even more rambles about this issue as well the things that I love about this watch because honestly, I really do love it. I also share some exciting news aaaaand you get to join me while I do a private yoga class with my coworker/friend.

 
Namaste...
