Perfect. I upgraded from Charge HR and Flex. Honestly I don't even feel like I am wearing the Blaze. It's lighter and more comfortable then the Charge. I bought two for my wife and I. Wife thought she wasn't going to like it due to the size but she hasn't taken it off yet. Gives you everything you want. You can customize the settings but mostly it's basic. Maybe next update they will offer more. It's easy to use and battery life last about a week. You can read messages, see incoming calls and control music your listening too. Really easy to operate and figure out. I won't use all it's features but it's a big Thank you. If any changes I will update but having it a week now I am very pleased.

I bought a Surge two weeks ago then upgraded to the Blaze. Here's what I think of the Blaze so far, in comparison to the Surge
-removable interface, so you can use it as Fitbit zip and put in your pants if you don't want to wear around your wrist
- sleek design, can wear as unisex and doesn't look bulky
- feel very light, and doesn't bother as much as the Surge
- colorful and touch screen, more hands on and ease of use (big upgrade from Fitbit)
- adds on work out (good feature but not that useful to me)
- longer battery life
- accurate HR measure
- has access to daily activities, calories summary without using your phone
- still using hand movement to calculate steps
- have to remove the band in other to charge the device
- not water proof (big disappointment)
- no GPS tracking but it's not really a con to me
- can't set alarm on watch (have to set through the app)
After using for a couple days, I'm very satisfied with the product. Overall, I would recommend the Blaze to anybody.

Great watch, Great Price, So So Design
Posted by: HOOKSJP from: on
The watch functionality is great. It is easy to navigate. I owned the iWatch for a week before the practicality of owning it drove me to return it. This watch is functional, much more affordable, and I liked that it was FITBIT so I could keep competing with my other FITBIT friends. The square design of the casing could be nicer, but outside of that I love it. There are a couple of posts on this forum that gave the watch a 1 rating due to the face designs not being very appealing. Well, I agree. The face designs are not what they could be, but the ability to programmatically update the face designs is there. Hopefully FITBIT takes that feedback and does something to add more clock faces. The charge lasted me almost five days before it was time to recharge the device. I use a FITBIT charge HR and the Blaze. The ability to interchange them throughout the day and still have an accurate step count is amazing. The tracking is flawless. Well, that is my review. Hope it helps.

Good but not great - yet
Posted by: KateS from: on
As for the music control, The When I go to the Blaze 101 Guide within the FitBit app on my smartphone, and select Music, the animation that plays, make is seem like you can adjust the music from within the activity window. The visual that plays over and over shows going to the activity, starting it and then the screen pulls down to adjust the music as it does from the main page. This is very misleading. What is the point of having the music adjustment except for when you are in the middle of a workout? This is definitely a major negative in my opinion.
Also while working out, I have one of my pre-set activities as circuit training and yet it has not automatically detected it yet. It sometimes detects walking or running instead. So, in order for it to track the correct activity, I have to use the activity screen on the watch and then I can't control my music except by using my phone. This is hard to do as I am in the middle of a workout and have only so much time to get from one station to another. Annoying.
I have had trouble also with the plastic band for this watch. It is very wide even for a not-so-petite person like myself (I wear Large band size on the 3rd to smallest hole - small looked like it would be too small). When I wear the watch for workouts, I get an allergic reaction to the plastic. So, I have to change the watch to my other arm right after. It would be nice if there was a band that tapered a little bit so that it was not as obtrusive. I'm thinking something more feminine. Also, maybe one that is designed more for sports that breathes. Like a fabric and velcro option or a stretch-type band for better comfort when you are really sweating it out.
Lastly, I was disappointed to find that the reminder to move when you have been sedentary too long was not included with this product.
Don't get me wrong, there is a lot to like about this watch. I am however a bit disappointed that it is not all that I expected. I hope some of these things will be corrected as further development takes place. Hopefully when they roll out a software upgrade.

Great Fitness Watch
Posted by: BeachguyMike from: on
I bought the new FITBIT Blaze Smart Fitness Watch when it first became available in stores on March 1. I've had a Surge that functioned well but didn't like the design or black and white touch screen. The Blaze. has a sleek design similar to the Apple watch, is water resistant and has a Hi-res color touch screen that is very easy to see. The Blaze tracks the same activities as the Surge & continuously monitors heart rate. The Blaze also has a choice of adjustable straps that can easily be changed. The only feature that the Blaze does not have is an internal GPS tracker, but I did not find that is an issue. The Blaze easily connects to a smart phone GPS to track routes ridden on a bike, running or walking. I love my Blaze!

A perfect fit between a fitness band and a smart watch! I love the idea of having something less than an Iwatch and more than a fitness band. The fitbit "blaze" is that product. The blaze gives you the perfect mix with texts, music control, gps tracking workouts and onboard fitstar exercises. This light weight band is more stylish with replaceable bands than other smart watches. I look forward to updates from fitbit, on different "clock faces" as it is limited to four choices. Fun and exciting product

The Future Is Here!
Posted by: Colt from: on
Out of all of the smart watches I’ve had thus far this is by far my favorite! The watch is incredibly thin, durable and stylish. I have yet to have an issue with any of its features. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone interested in tracking their fitness goals!

My first fitness watch and my last Fitbit
Posted by: sasnak1988 from: on
Compatibility listing on the box is misleading when it says "Windows Devices". If you are planning on using this with "any" windows mobile device, do your research before buying! Go to the fitbit help forums and read the windows 10 app section. When trying to connect your blaze with the computer to your fitbit account for the first time with the included sync/charge cradle, it doesn't work. The sync/charge cradle will only charge. When you start the fitbit software to sync your fitbit blaze to your account it asks you for a bluetooth dongle which you don't get with your blaze. You can call in to fitbit and request one. During my initial research before buying, shortly after the Blaze was released, I went to my local Academy and the store associate told me that I should order it online because it's missing some parts. They had several returned because of missing parts. Come to find out by my own experience, the missing part was the bluetooth dongle that fitbit software was asking for because the sync cradle doesn't sync. After numerous phone calls and emails to fitbit support trying to get the blaze to work correctly, I finally gave up after a month of trying to work with fitbit support. Also a particular email response from fitbit Support didn't help their cause either. I did a simple copy and paste (no alterations to it) to the help forums and it was immediately edited out. I asked the moderator why they edited out what fitbit support had sent me. Their response was "We didn't want our consumers to get the wrong idea or be mislead". Uh, fitbit, "your support team" sent me the email in a direct response to my question. At this point I was done with fitbit for good. I went in to my local Best Buy and let one of the managers read the posts in the help forums and the email exchanges. The manager was actually laughing out of disbelief and apologized for Fitbit when it wasn't even a Best Buy issue. The manager offered to take the Blaze back and give me store credit even though I had the Blaze for a month. I used the store credit to preorder the Garmin Vivoactive HR. And when I went to pay for the difference between the Blaze and the VHR, the manager said that Best Buy will take care of the difference in price after what I've read and saw for myself what fitbit had done. I've had the VHR for a few days now and I can honestly say you get a lot more bang and versatility for your buck. For me, the VHR is more comfortable to wear and has more options, a lot more. Garmin support has beat fitbit hands down in every category which says a lot about a company and the relationship with their customers.

Not an Apple Watch, but still nice.
Posted by: IdeaCreator from: on
I have to admit, my life revolves around apple but I just couldn't justify the cost of an apple watch. I bought this instead and have been somewhat pleased with it. So, it doesn't do everything the apple watch does and their are only 4 clock faces for the watch. Yet it is a fraction of the cost. The heart rate monitor has been extremely accurate as well as the sleep monitor. The watch not only controls sound played through your headphones, but also through any bluetooth speaker you are connected to which is cool. The silent vibration alarms are quite strong and have been a nice added alarm for daily needs. There aren't many options on bands, but I did go with the sport black band and the stainless steal band. Both are really comfortable and light weight. Over all, it's a good watch but don't expect it to compete with the apple watch.

A lot of fun with the watch, initially. I enjoy the interface, and the step tracker seems to be a lot better than the one on my Charge HR. Had to fool around with my Note 5 to get the notifications to work. If you get multiple texts, you will not be able to read them per se. You may only see one text at a time, as it comes in. Bad news though, and I am rating this a 3, is because I've had this product for no more than 6 hours, and already the home button popped off the device (button on the left side of the screen).
I now have to go back to the store and return it, or get an exchange. Not sure how you are supposed to be active with this watch if the buttons pop off of it. No idea how it happened, either, I just went for a run; this is quite frustrating. Otherwise, I would have given it a solid 4 or 5 so far for the use. Furthermore, I'd like to compliment the 4 optional watch clock faces you can change via the app.
