Abstract

Fitbit Versa is the most popular of its predecessors and successors in the Fitbit faction. Increasingly data stored on these smart fitness devices, their linked applications and cloud datacenters are being used for criminal convictions there is limited research for investigators on wearable devices and specifically exploring evidence identification and methods of extraction. In this paper we present our analysis of Fitbit Versa using Cellebrite UFED and MSAB XRY. We present a clear scope for investigation and data significance based on the findings from our experiments the data recovery will include logical and physical extractions using devices running Android 9 and iOS 12, comparing between Cellebrite and XRY capabilities. This paper discusses databases and datatypes that can be recovered using different extraction and analysis techniques, providing a robust outlook of data availability. We also discuss the accuracy of recorded data compared to planned test instances, verifying the accuracy of individual data types the verifiable accuracy of some datatypes could prove useful if such data was required during the evidentiary processes of a forensic investigation.
