Test conclusion: what you should know
The Fitbit Blaze brings fitness functions under the cloak of a Smartwatch. She brings smart features but hardly, it measures pretty neat steps and activities. For sporting activities, the heart rate monitor is slightly inaccurate. Best price on the Internet: 163,94 euro * this product at Amazon battery life good integration in the Fitbit universe long order Pro signaled SMS, appointments and phone calls against something inaccurate pulse measurement at the sport no signaling of app messages mark of the editorial 3.78 sufficient user rating now write a Fitbit has except for the tested surge and many other models now the Fitbit blaze presented but the analysts were little impressed at the launch at CES in Las Vegas. Too inflexible, it was too little Smartwatch. Maybe Fitbit has made a mistake to call the blaze, smart fitness watch because as it reminds too much of Smartwatches. These can be so easily adapted by app on a wide variety of needs. The blaze is best as a simple, but stylish fitness bracelet. It is not that cheap though.

What can the Fitbit blaze?
The fitness bracelet consists of a square sensor clip, which is about as big as a glucose tablet. An angular titanium metal frame holds the chip and this in turn can be combined with various bands. They are made of plastic, metal or even leather about. So the blaze while striking looks, but doesn’t remember a fitness bracelet. It measures the steps taken, captured by app automatically, whether one rides a bicycle, for example, and it captured throughout the day distributed the pulse in five-second intervals by means of an optical pulse sensor. Fitbit is called the continuous pulse measurement of purepuls, similar is there even when the Garmin Fenix 3 HR When the blaze not only step numbers as a aims can be as usual set, which you then so to speak after running, but also consumed calories, and floors (with the built-in altimeter). Motion sensor, heart rate measurement and app can reward for athletic efforts, which are not based on step, press about cycling or weights. As extras, the band brings even the sound-control for the Smartphone (Android, ios and Windows phone) with Bluetooth (from 4.0) and notification capabilities for calls, SMS and dates with. Whatsapp messages or messages from Facebook, Twitter & co. Remains mute the volume and it’s also wanted according to the Fitbit.

Whole new: built-in training
The three built-in training programs under the menu item fit star are a piece of cake of the blaze. They are always available, even if the blaze just not using a smart phone is connected. A warm-up program is designed to help prevent sports injuries, there’s a short program to the abdominal muscle training, as well as a seven minute workout with 13 exercises. In doing so, the display, what to do and then start the training. Land the training results, like all other activities on the Fitbit portal.
Operation the Fitbit blaze
The Fitbit blaze has three buttons and a color touch screen. In the normal case is the display unfortunately dark, until a wrist motion, as if you want to read the clock, brings the display to the shine. This works quite well, but wishes it for night operation, the clock remains dark and quiet, if you wear them in bed. And that it is necessary, if she should evaluate the quality of sleep. There is a night mode so. The menu of the clock consists of a total of seven screens (time, activity overview, exercise, workout programs, timer, alarms, settings). Unfortunately, for many settings, you need the Fitbit app. So respectively a new alarm adjust just to choose one of four dials. Tones are the blaze does not by itself, but it has a vibrating alert. With a combination of swipe gestures on the display, press and even frame beaters operation opens up very quickly. Partly, the display but only responded after repeated wipe or touch gestures after several targeted, sporting activities referred to as on the Start button for the exercises. The band can distinguish activities such as walking or riding a bike while automatically and evaluate them accordingly in the app, but’s training activities through the training function, you can also selectively read. Bicycle Fitbit then records the way GPS in your Smartphone.
The step count and floor measurement work well in the test. No wonder there has plenty of experience Fitbit. Not so good work sleep measured on the preset. Here, users should make sure due to the sleep habits to adjust the sensitivity in the app. Otherwise, the app ever concluded four hours of sleep when in fact there were eight. The pulse switches to the sport at one second intervals. In the test, the pulse peaks compared to a chest strap measurement appeared slightly delayed and somewhat flat. This is normal for optical pulse measurement. The pulse values are thus okay for everyday use, for the detailed analysis of sports values are not suitable however. The calorie values calculated by Fitbit seem plausible, are compared to the data of other bands but by about one fifth higher.
Everyday life, battery, and Bracelet Exchange
In everyday life, you will quickly forget the blaze. It weighs 43 g in size L (fits wrists between 17 and 20.5 cm circumference) just once. There’s more, about 2.4 cm wide straps for wrist circumference 14 – 23.5 cm. The tapes can be easily changed via the usual watch straps buckles. The blaze is still not designed for eternity, because the battery is built-in and can be not changed. In everyday life the sturdy metal frame holds some scratches from the clock but the display itself has no special means. Fitbit itself keeps the band only for waterproof, about to take a shower. She is however not suitable different from many other sports watches and straps for swimming activities.
