Fitness Watch Review: Fitbit Blaze

I’ve been wearing my Fitbit Blaze for a couple of weeks now. I hesitated to buy a Fitbit, because I’m not a big fan of wearing a watch. However, more and more runners are using an activity watch, so I decided to give it a try. Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch, Plum, Silver, Large (US Version)
I’m actually enjoying having it. The Fitbit Blaze keeps track of my heart rate, which I hadn’t monitored before. The stats include a breakdown of at what heart rate time is in what zone: peak, cardio, and fat burn. 


It keeps track of how many steps you have taken in a day and the calories you’ve burned. Once you set your daily goals, it will motivate you to be more active so that you can meet your goals. It also has a little fireworks celebration once you meet your daily goal. 

I was considering getting an Apple watch instead, but after comparing the prices and features, I decided to go with the Fitbit Blaze. 

I get text alerts on my phone and notices of incoming calls. This is handy when I’m driving. My car does have handsfree answering, but it doesn’t have caller ID. I can quickly look at my wrist and see who’s calling and press the answer button on my steering wheel. 

I was using a separate app on my phone to keep track of my weekly workouts, but the Fitbit comes with its own app that syncs with the watch. I do have to press the exercise and then the run option to tell the watch that I’m going to start running. That’s a little bit of a pain because sometimes I forget to do it and then it doesn’t track my workout correctly. 

Overall, I’m happy with my purchase. It was the right choice for my fitness needs at an affordable price.
