Perfect amount of smart watch in a fitness tracker
Posted by: NW6398 from: on
I wanted a new fitness tracker that did more (originally had a Fitbit Charge that I loved), but I was finding it hard to find a tracker that didn't look ridiculous on my narrow wrist. Was going for the Surge until I tried it on. Got redirected to the Apple Watch. Fit was great and it looked great. But when I went home to do my research, I found that the Apple Watch was a "smart watch with some fitness tracking abilities". Comparing to the Fitbit Blaze which was a "fitness watch with some smart watch abilities", I realized the Fitbit Blaze was much more of what I was looking for.
It has all of the fitness tracking components (running, biking, weightlifting, treadmill, elliptical, and the new FitStar), while being easy to use, still using the Fitbit app that I love, NOT having all the extra that I didn't want or need and having just the right amount of "smart watch" features (phone call, text and calendar notifications!). And its' price point was a major bonus as compared to other similar trackers. I was afraid it was going to look too masculine on my wrist (I wanted to stick with black so that it didn't stick out by being bright), but I've actually gotten many compliments on it! I wear it a little loose to look more bracelet style and I tighten it for workouts. Have NO regrets about making this purchase--absolutely love it!

I am obsessed with my new fitness watch!
Posted by: LizValerio from: on
Tracks steps, heart rate, calories burned while lifting weights, on the treadmill, elliptical, or while you're just riding your bike. The alarm works great! It doesn't stop vibrating until I turn it off. I receive and read texts while I am working out without having to look at my phone. And I can also answer a call from my watch. I can't talk on the phone or text from this watch but I wasn't looking for another phone on my wrist. Everything I wanted in a fitness watch! Great job Fitbit! I am one happy customer!

I'm really enjoying my Blaze
Posted by: Seaheart from: on
I was in the market for a more all-around fitness tracker with HR, coming from a Misfit Shine. I mostly work out in the gym with circuit training, weights, etc and was looking at things like the Microsoft Band2, Garmin Vivoactive HR, and Garmin Forerunner 235. I decided on the Blaze because of the great Fitbit app, HR, and more stylish look (yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I've seen several reviews knocking the looks but I disagree). My 11 year old daughter is dying for an Apple Watch and said my Blaze looks like one! I have the small blue and with my very small wrist I think it looks great.
I love the fact that the Blaze is a fitness tracker first, and a smart watch second--this is the right combo for me. I like getting text and call notifications, and love the fact that I can choose from multiple workout modes, including pilates and even bootcamp. The charger is strange but doesn't bother me, especially with the long battery life. I just charge it when I'm in the shower. I spent a long time "obsessing" over the right fitness watch, and I'm glad I chose the Blaze.

Does everything it says it does.
Posted by: MrsJ0917 from: on
I love this Fitbit. This is my first fitness tracker, and I've been waiting for the Blaze to be released. I'm glad I did. I have very SMALL wrists, and I was really worried that it would be overwhelmingly huge. It is quite big(for me), but I would say the face is about the same as the Apple iWatch. I love that this is more affordable, and still offers many of the same features. The heart rate monitor is great! it seems to record steps very accurately, and the sleep tracker is dead on. It's really cool to see how your sleep patterns work and has been very insightful. Dying to take it on a run if this incessant rain would quit. Also can't wait to invest in a leather band to give a more classy look. Great purchase!

Excellent fitness tracker with a few added bonuses
Posted by: reesh11 from: on
I've had many smart watches and fitness watches. My Charge HR was getting worn out so I knew it was time to upgrade. When this arrived I will say it was larger than expected. But the battery life and functionality definitely make up for that. I like how it pops right out of the strap for charging. LITERALLY lasts 4-5 days on one charge compared to barely two with the Charge HR. I get call notifications only bc I don't really need my wrist to vibrate every time I get a text. Lovely interface, all around great watch. Excellent buy!

Traded my apple watch for this, Fitbit just has what you need. I have messed with smart watches but this is best so far....

Love this watch. Its just like the apple watch without all the bells and whistles. I can read texts, get calendar updates, and accept phone calls. This gives me close to accurate calorie counts and heart rate readings. I spin and light weights so this is perfect!!

Purchased my Fitbit Blaze on March 9th. It is being returned today March 22nd. The battery does not hold a charge longer than 3 days for me. Twice I've had to recharge after 2 days. It also takes 2 hours to fully charge. It is not recording stairs/steps accurately at all. I still have my Fitbit One and yesterday I compared the one's results to my Blaze results. The one showed 12 stairs and 8500 steps. The Blaze showed 3 stairs and 5800 steps. One item to note for everyone thinking of going to a watch type step counter. If you are like me and rest your hands on a treadmill handhold or push the cart in the grocery or use the handrail on steps, the Blaze will not count steps at these times.

This new watch doesn't count steps accurately!!
Posted by: HR80 from: Los Angeles, CA on
Save your money!! This watch counts most of your hand movements as steps; it's very inaccurate! When I brushed my teeth, combed my hair and even when I used the restroom it would count those hand movements as steps. I went to Fitbit.com and noticed so many people complain about the same thing. Wearing it on the non dominant hand doesn't make a difference. I returned it and got my money back. I've also tried the Fitbit surge and it's the same problem. I'm currently trying the Samsung gear S2, which I noticed also has the same issue, but not as bad as Fitbit. Plus all the features it comes with are pretty awesome. For the extremely high price these watches cost, I cannot believe how inaccurate they are!!

Compared to a Misfit
Posted by: Dawn from: on
For starters I will say that I had a Misfit. It was something I won in a white elephant game at Christmas two years ago. I felt it was extremely inaccurate and was just a basic pedometer and sleep tracker. I work out 5-6 times a week and wanted to be able to see if I was hitting my maximum heart rate level while working out. I can't always trust the gym machines and for half of my workout I'm lifting weights. So I put it to the test today.
For the first half of my workout session I did weights. I was able to choose that as a setting when starting my workout. I'm not really sure I will use this feature again. It seemed to tell me what my max heart rate was while weight training and how long I lifted. I can see my heart rate info in another screen just as easily so to me, this wasn't beneficial. I was also in a challenge this weekend with another fit bit wearer. One thing I've noticed is that I'm very light on my feet. I don't take steps that bear down a lot of weight. For me, unless I'm almost stomping, my steps do not register. I also climbed on the stair machine and it didn't record my step unless I let my hand kind of linger by my side. Anyone who knows me knows that I shouldn't be trusted to not fall on a machine like that. I'm just clumsy :) So I ended up stopping the stairs and shifting to the treadmill just to have my steps register for the challenge this weekend. Ya...I'm that competitive. It's also not an issue of it being too loose. I have the small size band and have it on the second to last tightest notch.
* Pretty accurate heart rate with the ability to see if I'm in normal, cardio, fat burn or peak exercise mode
* Accurate sleep monitoring
* Able to control music using the watch saving me from having to pull my phone out
* Able to see notifications come across and know whether it's important enough to stop my workout to answer/respond
* Doesn't always accurately register my steps. It could be that I'm just a light stepper but it's rather annoying especially while doing a fitbit challenge.
* I find that sometimes the screen doesn't pop up with a flick of the wrist and I have to either try again or tap the watch face which can be irritating while in the middle of a workout.
* It didn't include the 7 minutes I spent on the stair master as exercise but it did show up in the peak heart rate.
Would I buy this again? I'm not sure. Maybe once I can do a true workout after the fit bit challenge I can gauge whether or not it's really necessary. Because I had to switch to the treadmill to register my steps it wasn't a completely accurate description of MY true workout. Today I learned that I mostly stayed in the fat burn zone and spend very few minutes in peak (only when I was on the stair master I usually use). So that was interesting to know.
