Fitbit's touchscreen fitness band has smarts but lacks style.

Accurate and reliable tracker

from PC Magazine

If you're new to the world of fitness tracking, the Fitbit Blaze is a solid choice. But if you're looking for a smartwatch, or to upgrade anything but a first-generation tracker, the Blaze is unlikely to satisfy.

Tom's Guide

Big-screen fitness tracker

from Tom's Guide

Fitbit calls the Blaze a "smart fitness watch." But while I like the on-screen FitStar workouts, there's little much else to recommend the device. For the record, I don't think it's ugly, but its angular design will be off-putting for many. While smaller fitness trackers can be worn inconspicuously, the Blaze is simply too big for that. And, you're not getting enough significant smartwatchlike features in return. You can't respond to notifications, there are only a few watch faces from which to choose and there are no third-party apps. At its lower price of $149, though, it could be a good alternative to those who like the Fitbit Charge 2, but want a larger and more colorful screen.

A colourful activity tracker

from Tech Advisor

The Fitbit Blaze is the mnost colourful of the Fitbit range, especially for people looking for a fitness watch smarter than the average timepiece. Like all the Fitbits it's a great activity tracker, supported by a fantastic app and desktop dashboard, as well as an eco-system of competition with friends, collaborative challenges, badges and rewards to keep you motivated. If you're after a stylish watch that is packed with advanced fitness features the Blaze stands apart from the competition. Its colourful display is fun, and its fitness stats seriously good for your health.

Talk Android

A nice solid entry in Fitbit’s portfolio of devices

from Talk Android

When it comes to activity trackers, the Fitbit Blaze sits above much of the competition in the dedicated device market. That should probably come as no surprise as soon as you look around and see the Fitbit Blaze standing apart with a full color screen and a more watch-like form factor. I am not sure the Fitbit Blaze would be the best choice for a first-time activity tracker buyer only due to the level of investment at $199.95 MSRP for the base models that come with blue, black or plum bands and a silver frame or $229.95 for a model with a black band and gunmetal frame or pink band and gold frame. First time buyers may want to look at a cheaper alternative to make sure activity tracking is for them.

It just doesn’t deliver

from APC

This device, more than any other Fitbit, is crying out for a more open API; an app store that could deliver a more personalised experience, be it through custom clock faces or personalised workouts. Instead, it’s a fairly restricted device with more potential than it actually delivers.

Android Police

A great activity tracker that looks like a smartwatch, wants to be a sports watch, and is neither

from Android Police

I love the Blaze so much that I want to wear it, but its watch form factor has left me wondering how much I'm willing to sacrifice to switch my main watch from the Huawei Watch to the Fitbit Blaze. And I still haven't figured out the answer.

Fone Arena

Full-fledged fitness tracker while a half-baked smartwatch

from Fone Arena

The Fitbit Blaze scores in terms of providing probably the best fitness and activity tracking. It is also decent in the sleep tracking and heart rate monitoring department. The FitStar feature that offers animated workout tutorial is a great addition which sets its apart from its competitors. However when it comes to being a smartwatch, we think the Blaze is not smart enough. The call notifications are fine but text notifications often faces lags and has its own glitches.

A solid fitness tracker, but it won't set the world alight

The Fitbit Blaze is one step above its fitness trackers rivals, but it's still half step behind the smartwatch crowd.

Android Authority

Bears remarkable similarities to a smartwatch, but with a serious fitness focus

from Android Authority

Blaze is a great fitness watch. It keeps its goals in check and doesn’t try to do more than it needs to. The point is simple: It’s a fitness watch, not a smartwatch. The Fitbit Blaze is filling a surprising gap in the market, and because of its excellence in its abilities, the Blaze has quickly become my favorite wearable. If you’re looking for a straightforward fitness watch, the Fitbit Blaze could just be the perfect device for you.

Don't call it a smartwatch

from PCWorld

If you’re an Apple fan, buy the Apple Watch. Its fitness features are solid, and it’s basically an iPhone on your wrist. But if you’ve been using Fitbit devices for a long time, then the Blaze is worth a look. It’s not the most stylish fitness band around, but it supports basically every platform, has an established community of users, and has a lot of useful features lifted straight from Fitbit’s more expensive tracker.
