Fitbit has created a new smartwatch that will launch in April. The Fitbit Versa has a sleek look with interchangeable watch bands similar to the Apple Watch. Versa's new smart features include menstrual cycle tracking and a virtual coach that guides you through exercises. You can pre-order the Versa now for $199.

The electric scooter startup Bird raised a second round of funding. The $100 million raise was from a $300 million valuation from venture capitalists. Bird has 1,000 electric scooters placed around Santa Monica, Calif., with plans to bring electric scooters to 50 U.S. markets by the end of the year.

The popular coffee chain Philz Coffee created an app to make ordering your next cup of coffee easy. The new order-ahead app lets you browse the top coffee picks and order your drink ahead of time for pickup. The app lets you customize your drink order just the way you like it.
