FitBit Blaze Review

The Fitbit Blaze is a wireless wristband which tracks a person’s daily physical activity, which includes things such as distance, steps, calories burned; sleep quality and so much more.

Fitbit Blaze is capable of doing this through leveraging accelerometer technology that tracks developments in the velocity of your movements with reasonable accuracy.

Think of Fitbit as your virtual fitness partner, because it is constantly recording your activity, even while you are sleeping, and compared to other fitness watches, Fitbit Blaze appears to be made with more style in mind. The slim band does not look overly bulky, and fits comfortably on your wrist.

How Does Fitbit Blaze Work?

What if you had a way to monitor all those steps you climb at work on a daily basis, the miles you log on your everyday run, and the food you consume, as well as how long and how well you sleep? Fitbit Blaze has made a way for users to monitor all of these things, and more.

Below is an overview of some of the features provided by the Fitbit Blaze:

  • Buttons: There is a button located on the left portion which serves as a home button, as well as back command, with 2 buttons on the right side which can be used for lowering and increasing music volume.

Those are the only buttons on the Fitbit Blaze, and the rest can be done through the touch screen.
