Fitbit Blaze review

 

A solid fitness tracker, but it won't set the world alight

Low price ; Stunning battery life ; Interesting fitness features

Lack of notifications ; Strange design ; Unreactive display

The Fitbit Blaze is one step above its fitness trackers rivals, but it's still half step behind the smartwatch crowd.

Fitbit Blaze review: Trailblazer or fitness failure?

 

Fitbit is well known in the activity tracking field. In fact, with claims of almost 80 per cent of this market, it is probably the company most people will have at least heard of when it comes to devices for monitoring how much you move. Despite this,...

Nice design with beautiful colour display, excellent platform, continuous heart-rate monitoring, automatic exercise recognition, multi-sport tracking, notifications can be useful, mostly accurate tracking

No waterproofing, no GPS without smartphone, distance measuring without GPS inaccurate, touchscreen not responsive enough, expensive, not the Apple Watch contender it might appear to be

The Fitbit Blaze is has plenty going for it, but is more niche than the company's other trackers, filling in a crack that perhaps didn't need to be filled.

Fitbit Blaze

 

The Fitbit Blaze is being marketed as the ultimate “smart fitness watch”. What that means in layman's terms is that this is Fitbit's attempt to create an all-in-one wearable that can offer robust fitness tracking, as well as basic smartwatch...

The Fitbit Blaze is competent fitness tracker for casual users, with a few smartwatch functions bolted on.

Fitbit Blaze review

 

Another decent Fitbit device but it's hemmed in by smartwatches on one side and its own siblings on the other

The Fitbit Blaze is a difficult device to place. It’s larger and has more features than your average fitness tracker, but it’s not feature-packed enough to be considered a proper sports watch. It’s something of a smartwatch, but the limited...

Fitbit Blaze review

 

Can Fitbit's latest smart ticker set the sports watch world alight?

5-day battery life ; Accurate heart-rate tracking ; Bright and clear display, indoors and out ; Inherently intuitive interface

Buttons feel cheap on such a sturdy device ; No standalone GPS tracking ; Water resistant, not waterproof – so no good for swimmers

A sports-first fitness watch with a subtle dash of smarts, the Blaze is a joy to use – with a brill battery to boot

Fitbit Blaze review

 

The Fitbit Blaze is a colourful activity tracker that, with its customisable wrist straps and smart notifications, makes a stylish watch its own right.

The Fitbit Blaze is a welcome addition to the Fitbit range, especially for people looking for a fitness watch smarter than the average timepiece. Like all the Fitbits it's a great activity tracker, supported by a fantastic app and desktop dashboard, as...

We really like the design of the Fitbit Blaze, especially with how customisable it is. It’ll constantly measure your movement and even your sleep at night, providing you with an interesting insight to your general health and sleep. The ability to...

Fitbit Blaze Review: In Depth

 

Fitbit Blaze Review: We've tested the first Fitbit smartwatch for over a week now and here's what we think of the Blaze's fitness features, notifications support and stats tracking.Fitbit Blaze Review:…

Decent battery life ; Plenty of fitness features ; Selection of straps

Iffy notifications ; Few non-fitness features

The Fitbit Blaze packs in a strong selection of fitness features and marries up well with the Fitbit app, giving you a pretty comprehensive overview of your exercise sessions. The Fitstar is a simple but effective feature for getting into shape, while...

Review: Fitbit Blaze fitness tracker

 

While dressed up to look very much like a premium smartwatch, Fitbit's new Blaze fitness tracker is actually a fashion-focused personal fitness and motivational gadget that brings elegance and versatility to a device that can easily tap the powerful...
