Fitbit Blaze Overview

Fitbit Blaze Overview

The Fitbit Blaze is a stylish fitness tracker with a hi-res colour touchscreen. It’s packed with innovative features designed to automatically track your heart rate and every day activity.

Overview

Combine fitness tracking and style in a versatile watch and you get Fitbit Blaze. It has advanced fitness features such as PurePulse heart rate monitoring, the FitStar app with guided workouts, and Connected GPS that uses your phone's GPS to track you on runs. And stay in the know with text, calendar, and call notifications sent directly to Blaze.

More Information

It's been a few months since that injury sidelined you. But, you've been good about your recovery and resisted the temptation to play. Now you're ready to jump back into it and get stronger. Wanting to ease into things, you fire up FitStar on your Fitbit Blaze and begin a new workout.

A trainer guides you through the workout all from the Fitbit Blaze's full-colour OLED touchscreen display. Heart racing and drenched in sweat, you feel your lungs ache. Perhaps the workout was a bit intense, but you feel good. Maybe getting back in it won't be as hard as you thought.

The Blaze begins to vibrate. A subtle reminder that you've got a meeting in an hour. After a shower, a quick change is needed for both you and your Blaze. Switching between the classic fitness band and the dapper leather band, you've nearly completed your outfit. You change the watch face to something a little more sophisticated to accent your attire. You're looking good and feeling good, but you really need to stop staring at yourself in the mirror. Time to go.

Why you need this:

  • Connected GPS: Connect Fitbit Blaze with the GPS on your smartphone to record your routes and view run stats such as pace and duration.
  • PurePulse: Automatic, continuous heart rate monitoring, directly from your wrist, accurately tracks workout intensity, training zones, and calorie burn without the need for cumbersome chest straps.
  • FitStar: Starting a new workout routine can be tricky. With FitStar, simply start a workout and you get on-screen step-by-step instructions and coaching.
  • Stay in the know: Smartwatch features keep you posted with text, calendar, and call notifications, and allow you to control your music so you pump out motivational tunes during training, work, and play.
  • Personalize: More than just a fitness tracker, the Fitbit Blaze is a smart timepiece that you can customize to fit your style. With a myriad of integrated watch faces and accessory bands to choose from, you can easy go from the gym to the office to a night out on the town with ease. Additional accessory bands sold separately.
  • Training upgraded: No matter what your favourite fitness activity, SmartTrack helps you train smarter. It automatically recognizes continuous movement, identifies the type of activity, and records it in the Fitbit app, delivering a comprehensive exercise summary. For precise tracking during workouts, activate Multi-Sport modes for real-time stats on the full-colour OLED touchscreen display.
  • Keeps watch 24/7: This fitness smartwatch has an eye out for your daily activities, including steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes, and heart rate readings so you can keep watch of your resting heart rate and daily trends. It also monitors sleep duration and quality, and gently wakes you with a silent alarm.
  • Learn to eat, live, and sleep better: The Fitbit app and online dashboard display a real-time snapshot of your movement, showing you easy-to-read graphs, charts, and tools that make sense whether you're a rookie or a pro. Record your workouts, log food, set goals, share your stats, compete with friends on the leaderboard, and earn badges for fitness milestones.
  • A trusty companion: Blaze resists sweat and water splashes so you don't have to hold back on training when the weather is less than ideal. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 5 days on a single charge and recharges in approximately 2 to 3 hours.
  • Connect to your digital world: With Bluetooth 4.0 technology, Blaze wirelessly and automatically syncs to your computer, tablet, and iOS, Android, or Windows smartphone, as well as with popular partner apps like MyFitnessPal, so you can check your progress no matter where you are.

Great potential but major flaw that is quite aggravating

I was looking for a fitness tracker that I could use in all sorts of sports and activities and offered some kind some smartphone connectivity. When I saw the Blaze I thought it was the perfect tracer for me and in a way it is except for one major flaw… you can’t lock the screen when you track an activity. The screen is very sensitive so it’s very easy to touch the control while you are working out which can pause or stop the tracking. I work out every day and 80% of the time the tracking stops before my workout is complete. Just the touch of your sleeve can do this the moment it is damp with sweat. If you train allot and are looking for something to track your workouts, I suggest you keep looking for something else. For a device that can track kickboxing, running biking spinning and many other activities, FitBit apparently didn’t bother to test the unit under real life condition. I bought my Blaze on preorder and still 3 months after receiving it, all FitBit managed to say in their forums was that this was a great idea for a future feature. Foolish of me to think FitBit would be quick for fix such an issue with a firmware update, now I’m regretting not returning my Blaze when I had a change. If you only do light exercises or activities, you’ll probably be happy with the Blaze but probably too expensive for such a use.

Way overpriced

For [PRICE]$ I think this watch is over priced. It does what it claims however a lot of these features are already on your phone. I found myself using the app on my phone more than the watch itself. In that case I can just get the charge HR for less. This watch isn't even water proof.

This is it!

All you need for a fitness tracker is in Blaze. It knows what you are doing - it automatically recognizes continuous movement, identifies the type of activity, and records it in the Fitbit app - it does the thinking for you! Keeps track of steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes, and heart rate readings so you can keep watch of your resting heart rate and daily trends (no more straps!). Here's a bonus - it includes text, calendar, call notifications and music control! It's a watch and practically smart! Unlike smartwatches I tried, they are overkill, I mean you got a phone so use your smartphone. I got me this watch and I love Blaze to track my fitness in a very practical way. Do it and don't complicate things, simply Blaze!

Fitbit blaze

Love this watch - it is a little addictive meaning always seem to be checking my steps, distance, etc. Love the calorie counter - imputing food eaten, balance of Calories left for the day to maintain weight is a great to make me realize exactly how much I am eating. Sleep monitor detail is also excellent. Highly recommend!

Simply the best

I've tried the Microsoft Band 2 and the Charge HR. And this is head and shoulders above. Superior battery to the Band 2. And the fact that you can track non-step exercises with the Blaze (i.e. spinning, eliptical, yoga, etc.). Looks great and getting lots of compliments.

Fitbit Blaze Outstanding

I bought the Fitbit blaze wow this Fitbit is really amazing. So much better then the Fitbit hr the one I had the strap broke. It's good for the garbage. The Blaze does so much more really worth the extra cash and got the 3year warranty. What I like is you can change the strap there are 3 different ones to choose from. Yes I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good fit bit tracker

Fitbit Blaze

The Fitbit Blaze does everything it claims, the heart rate monitor works well (within a beat or two compared to my Garmin chest strap), notifications work great and always comes thru (nice for when you are in a meeting and can’t look at your phone waiting for that important message). The battery lasts about 3 days between charges and that is with the heart rate monitor turned off while I sleep. My only suggestions for improvement would be to make the next one water proof and better pricing on the upgraded straps. The Blaze performs and looks great.

Very nice!

Stylish and simple. This tracker was a breeze to set up using the Fitbit app and delivers on everything it says it is. By all accounts, very accurate on its measurements. The large wrist band is very large. Make sure you don't pick this band if you don't need it.

Great Device

I initially bought a Microsoft Band 2 back when it was released in Nov 2015. And the device was good, but suffered from a poor battery (I needed to charge it every other day). Plus it wasn't comfortable to wear (relatively stiff and the clasp was really bulky. I switched to the Fitbit Charge HR - and it was a good device (good battery life, more comfortable), but it didn't track indoor cycling (which is my primary cardio exercise). So I upgraded to the Blaze and thinks its awesome. Very comfortable to wear (even more than the Charge HR), great battery life, screen, and choice of exercises from Yoga, golf to biking and spinning. You won't be disappointed.

Keeps me moving

I purchased the Fitbit Blaze with the stainless steel band which I wear at work. It has attracted much attention due to it's professional look and the hype surrounding wearables. After work, I hit the gym and move the computer portion of the Fitbit into the black athletic band; it's very simple to make the switch. The battery life has delivered as advertised and the health statistics are accurate. Setting alarms must be done by logging into your Fitbit account which is kind of a pain; maybe that's one of the trade offs of having a 5 day battery life. The simple notifications are great at keeping you updated without becoming a distraction. I love joining the challenges with other people and it's definitely going to help keep me in shape. Overall, a great product.

In love with this fitness tracker

I previously owned an apple watch and stopped using it after a week. This tracks my fitness, heart rate and sleep perfectly and seamlessly all hours of the day. Having to only charge it twice a week means I wear it 24/7. The alarm is awesome too, I use it instead of my phone now every morning.

Strong Device with a but...

The Blaze is a solid tracker. As someone who previously had a Charge HR, the transition was minimal. Battery life has been 5+ days for me with the use of a daily alarm, daily workout tracking and phone call notifications. It looks far better on my wrist than the Charge HR as it has a more watch-like look making it a more aesthetically pleasing tracker. That said, it's a subjectively better looking Charge HR with FitStar integration and a better outdoor run feature using connected GPS. The Charge HR can track runs provided you start the run in the APP prior where as the Blaze allows you to start it via the Blaze and it'll connect to your Phone GPS that way and provide you with visual data during the run. It's a solid device but the core of the tracker (Steps, Heart Rate, Floors Climbed) can all be found on the Charge HR for a lesser price. If the addition of more some smart watch features and the aesthetics are worth the price difference (it was for me) then this device is for you. Otherwise, the Charge HR is the better way to go.

Great with flaws

I was excited to buy this and then found out that my phone which is the Nexus 6P is not supported.I was quite surprised as it is a new phone with three nearest Android and one would think a new product would support the nearest technology. I have had multiple issues connecting the fitbit with my device and sometimes I would not get my messages. However, once connected, the device worked great. The heart rate monitor seems accurate and I really like all of the stats from the app. I think a real smart watch may suit my needs more so I may return this device. For the true fitness buff, $100 more, you can buy a Garmin with GPS, waterproofing, Hear rate monitoring and smart watch functions..

Still learning all its features but its part of my daily life. great tracking abilities and I love the calorie tracking . in vs out makes it simple to follow and stay within my goal. you can scan foods into your list which makes it that much easier to stay on goal. I give this smart watch a great grade and will be expanding my use as I move forward. Im in better shape every day. Thank You Fitbit

awesome tracker. BitTicker app makes it smartwatch

best looking tracker on the market. it looks great on my hand. it has everything i need plus good battery life and very reasonable price. in my opinion this fitbit looks better than apple watch. smartwatch capabilities are limited out of the box but battery life is so much better than anything out there. there is app in google play store called BitTicker Notifications. It essentially turns Fitbit trackers including this one into fully featured smartwatch. my fitbit now can receive emails, bbm, text, facebook, whatsup, twitter, instagram notifications and more. the drawback is battery life which is affected quiet bit. i guess this is the reason why fitbit does not offer these features out of the box. in my case with this app on i have to charge my fitbit every couple of days. anyways this fitbit is awesome. it is a keeper!

i like it

First Blaze is large but rather attractive looking device.It would be impossible for someone not to notice it on your hand! It really covers good chunk of wrist. The screen is nice and bright with vibrant colors. I have read that the screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 so it should be scratched resistant. I do get all features of Charge HR plus personal trainer (with FitStar membership at very reasonable $50CAN a year) and selection of individual workouts for better, more accurate tracking. Smartwatch features are average and i wish fitbit improves on them. you can receive text messages or whatsup messages, phone calls and calendar notification. I wish fitbit adds BBM and email notifications as well. I think Blaze is better deal than Fitbit HR. For extra $ you get a lot more.

Awesome!

I love this Fitbit Blaze. I can track all my gym starts, how many steps I've taken all all of my calories burnt! Very accurate, comfortable and looks sexy as hell. Not having a built in gps is a little lame, but I didn't buy this thing for running. I bought it for heart rate tracking during workouts and the sleek look of a smart watch! Great buy.

Fit Bit Blaze

very good - battery life is lasting 5 days. pretty cool - the screen is great - looks good, seems pretty accurate. A lot better then the HR. had to return the HR 5 times before getting one that works.
