Unlock all of Consumer from just $12 a month
The Blaze isn’t a band, rather it’s a small square device held onto a bracelet that looks like a watch. To charge it you need to pop it out of the housing, which is a pretty big annoyance in a world of plug-and-play devices. The colour screen gives you a number of different watch faces to choose from and it links to your phone to get notifications and calls, and to control your music.

I'm a slim female with small wrists. I was concerned this was going to be huge but it wasn't. It took about a day to get used to. It is a fitness tracker not a smart watch so don't be expecting loads of features. HAving said that it's pretty awesome. I've had a fitbit one fore nearly three years and upgraded to this recently. I love the heart rate monitor - reason why I got this nd the fact that fitbit syncs with my phone and saves all the data. Definitely recommeded and fitbits customer service is very good. I charge mine every 6 days.
Screen is much smaller than the face - why?
Yes, I recommend this product.
