Should you buy a Fitbit Blaze?

The Fitbit Blaze is one of Fitbit's most popular designs ever. Whether you run marathons or just a few miles every weekend, the Fitbit Blaze is perfect for all types. It is even at home when you head to work as the Blaze can be your everyday, every situation smartwatch.

Compared to past Fitbit designs, the Blaze has a face that can be taken off its band. You can mix and match your Blaze with different wristbands depending on the occasion. The new design makes the Blaze a great choice for fitness fanatics that were put off by the previous Fitbit offerings.

Why do you need it?

One of the great things about the Blaze is its slim design. The fitness tracker isn't bulky and you won't be bashing it against chairs and tables when you wear it to work. Nor will you be hitting it against weights or the treadmill at the gym.

The Blaze is great for tracking a number of fitness activities. You can count steps, calories burned, stairs climbed, resting heart rate and quality of sleep all with the Blaze.

One of the best reasons to buy the Blaze is for its built-in heart rate monitor. Now you can see exactly where your heart rate needs to be for optimal calorie burn.

The Blaze also gives you three guided workout sessions, something other fitness trackers and smartwatches don't. Fitbit really wants to help you get fit and healthy this year.

Compare the Fitbit Blaze

The Blaze is a genuine rival to the Apple Watch Series 2 when it comes to fitness tracking. The tough wristband is perfect for those that are serious about their workouts. Sweat, rain and dirt can get on the strap, making it a bit yucky. The changeable wristband makes it easy to have one for work and one for the gym.

The Blaze's lower price is another reason it is a great fitness tracker. And if you like having buttons to go along with the touchscreen, the Blaze offers that too.

Final verdict

The Blaze comes with a wealth of fitness tracking capabilities. It easily pairs with your smartphone and once synced, the Blaze has even more functions to play with.

One of the great features is the SmartTrack, which recognises fitness activities and exercises. The SmartTrack gives you credit for the exercises you do, so all of your fitness training gets tallied.

The Fitbit Blaze is the top of the line when it comes to fitness trackers and fitness watches. With an abundance of great tracking options and the ability to work with third-party apps, the Blaze is a great tool in the battle to get fit and healthy.
