A few weeks ago I purchased the Charge HR and I loved it, my Fitbit One was great, but I was growing tired of clipping it on and losing it. The Charge HR having phone notification features and heart rate monitoring got me into the future with wearables, and the Blaze is taking it to the next level! I’ve only had it a few days (got it early by ordering on the Fitbit site) and I am still pretty enamored with it. Out of the box it needs an update which is a little odd considering it’s a brand new product, but after updating and charging (battery was almost dead) I was up and ready to go!
Pros and Cons

I purchased the Fitbit Blaze because I wanted to keep track of my steps, workouts, heart rate, and sleep but I also appreciated the “smart watch” type features including text, calendar, call, and email notifications. I have it paired with an iPhone 6, and I get notifications for most of the core apps (calendar, calls, text, email) as long as you set the app on your phone to at least “banner” notifications. If you aren’t getting at least a banner notification on your phone, you won’t get any kind of notification on the Fitbit. Additionally, longer text messages, over a few sentences, will be cut off on your Fitbit so you will have to look at your phone to read them in their entirety. That said, let’s get into the pros and cons.

There are a lot of good reviews on this fit bit. I am upgrading from a flex and my blaze arrives tomorrow. I have seen complaints of people concerned and annoyed about having to pop it out of the band to charge it. There is a charger that clips around the device while in the band. It runs between 7.00 and 13.00 on amazon.

I am in love with this Fitbit Blaze! I’ve always had the Fitbit One (the kind that has a clip – not a wristband). I rarely wear bracelets because I they tend to annoy me, so I’ve never had a Fitbit that I wear on my wrist. However, when the price on the Blaze came down, I figured it was at least worth a shot… and I’m glad I did!
Fitbit’s Blaze – The good and bad
16 people found this helpful.
Ok folks, now that I have had this long enough to work through it, here is what I have discovered. I love the color screen and the auto selection for brightness is a great way to save some battery. It does require some training on the battery to get it to last. I charged it up wed. evening and saturday morning it went low battery, but still functioned until sunday afternoon before it went dead. after the second charge and full depletion of battery it now will last about 5 days. I also leave the flip of the wrist to turn on turned off, which also saves some battery life. I ordered extra charging cables and wristbands with frame very cheaply also. although this has to come out of the band to charge and go into the box of charging cable, I don’t see that as any trouble at all. It is a very simple step, and the ability to change out watchbands quick and easy is a great thing and can always change the look of it, and be a savior in the event you should break your watch band. It is very secure in the frame and can’t ever come out while wearing it so it’s not at all a bad thing in my opinion. Heart rate appears to be very accurate, but steps will falsely read extra steps during other activities. I drive a truck and it will add steps from vibrations of the steering wheel while driving, I have caught on to that issue. There is no documentation on the device inside the box, and that caused me some trouble figuring out what the buttons on the device actually do. For example, pressing the left button along with the bottom right button and hold for a few seconds will reboot the device. Holding bottom right button for a couple of seconds will take you straight to notifications. left button and top right button lights up screen, which is handier for me as you have to double tap to light up screen by touch. this isn’t really a bad thing because it keeps it from falsely lighting up when you aren’t wanting it to, but sometimes it still does light up when I am not trying to. Now, lets talk about the bluetooth. I have a Note 4, this device is junk for staying connected to my phone. I am constantly having to manually connect it from phone to re-connect it every time I loose connection with it by being away from phone. I bought the dongle to wireless sync it to desktop and it’s junk also, hardly ever can get it to connect to sync. It does at least work well by using the charging cable thankfully. Notifications (text messages) generally work well most of the time, but only if you have not lost the connection to the bluetooth that it so often does to me. Also, it only vibrates 2 very short bursts and they are so lightly felt that I almost never notice I have gotten them. This happens a lot while driving the truck also, vibrations from the wheel will cancel out what you can feel by the Fitbit. Fitbit really needs to get off their rear ends to fix these problems. It would be one thing if I had a very cheap smart phone losing connection for bluetooth, but my Note 4 isn’t a low end phone by any stretch. They have added more watch faces which is good, although I would love to see more of them still, as now I think there are 8 I believe, only 2 that I care for. You do have to use the app on the phone to change the watch face, it then sends it to device. Writings for within the settings are pretty small, sometimes it’s hard to touch it correctly to change what your wanting to change. You can play music with it also, but I really haven’t cared much to use this feature, although I have replayed or skipped a song or 2 from an album while playing with the Blaze. I installed a Spigen screen protector on mine and am extremely happy with that and will review it also. This device has fitstar in it which I don’t use, although the exercise section I have and it works well. I have taken long walks and it has automatically recognized the exercise I was doing, another plus. It has a countdown and stopwatch in it, but useless to me as the screen will go out on you constantly while using it (I used the stopwatch to time something), so that to me is a washout. My wife has the Surge, it connects to bluetooth automatically and flawlessly on her Note 4 but this Blaze won’t. I would give it 5 stars if it wasn’t for the buggy, junk software and firmware and the horrible connectivity issues. I am hoping that they will get these issues fixed soon through firmware and software upgrades. Personally I wouldn’t let it scare me from buying one, sometimes companies release something before they have the firmware/software really straight for the device. Overall this is a very nice device.
