For the last few months I have been road testing the Fitbit Blaze activity tracker and have put it through its paces, although in fairness I think its been putting me through mine!
The Fitbit Blaze is packed with features that I have come to expect from Fitbit, like all day activity and sleep tracking, heart rate monitor and even notifications. However the Blaze has taken it all one step further with On-Screen Workouts, Smartphone Notifications, beyond who is calling, a colour touchscreen and even Multi-Sport Tracking & Connected GPS.
But how has it coped in my daily life for the last few months?
I loved the concept of this product with its ability to be moved into different bands so you can switch up the look of it anytime, along with its watch faces you really can make it your own. I also love its ability to hold charge much longer than the last Fitbit I owned (the original Charge HR)
It is worth noting that as the face for the Blaze is much bigger so it does tend to get knocked about more. Not that any of this is an issue, I purchased some screen protectors for a few pounds that were super easy to fit and that has done the job of protecting it perfectly for months.
I love the Fitbit community function on there, it encourages you to take part in challenges against your friends with Fitbit devices and for me that’s half the battle of staying motivated … although running up and down the stairs twice at 11.47pm to beat your 5 friends is certainly not something I thought I would enjoy … but I do.
The Fitbit Blaze has some great activity timers built-in too. It means I can choose a mini workout where and when I have time and add it to my daily activity tracking …
Since owning a Fitbit I can’t imagine not having one on day and night, they are really good devices for helping me to keep motivated and on track.
I personally feel it’s a great addition to the Fitbit range and currently retails at £159.99 with 5 different colour options.
