My friends recommended the Fitbit brand to me, and I am very glad they did. I personally got the blue (I'm male, not to be stereotypical) small version, costing me £139.95 (with a 13% reduction). I know that a friend, with Prime, got it within 2-3 days, but without Prime, mine arrived in about 4-5 days. The product is very well-packaged, and the cover gives you a moderate amount of information (such as size, colour and the Fitbit brand) on the front. It was easy to remove, tape holding the inner box and the cover together. It is in a hard, magnetic case which, possibly in the future, could be used for something else. The watch is at the top of the box, and the charging cradle and the instruction manual at the bottom. All of the contents were easy to unbox, good job Fitbit! But the instructions aren't instructive whatsoever. All they include is the safety ("Caution:Skin Irritation if kept on for too long") that you need to know in umpteen different languages, without ANY setup guidance! I spent an hour trying to find out what to do on Google. You have to download the Fitbit app, which is fine, it's not data-consuming. You have to put in all your personal details when you make an account. It says that to have a Fitbit account you have to be 13, but if your a year or two younger (like me), a slight lie won't be detrimental. To make it work, I had to put in my dad's age, even though it is doesn't change the watch's fitness recording. Connecting the watch to your device was fifteen minutes worth wasted on research, but it eventually synchronised, and I was good to go.
If you are still reading this after a long introductory paragraph, then hats off to you. The product itself is perfect. The Silicon straps are extremely comfortable, they feel soft and when you do exercise, they cope with sweat really well. You can detach them from the main watch cradle (the metal part) pretty easily, giving you the availability to, if you want to, change the straps (other ones sold separately). You can tap the top of the straps to light up the watch face (it turns off automatically, so no battery is wasted), even though just tapping the screen or using the gyroscope (when you turn your wrist it turns on) seems more practical. My only strap complaint is that your skin gets a bit itchy if you keep it on for around 3 days, so I personally take it off temporarily at 2-day intervals.
The main metal cradle is very nice, and holds the actual watch system in firmly. The buttons on the sides are very satisfying to press, and aren't too big or too small. I quite like the small gaps between the watch and the cradle, they let air through to your wrist. My only complaint is that if you bend your hand up a bit too much, the metal can dig into your skin, e.g. doing a press-up (which it can record you doing).
The device is nice and compact, and looks very exquisite. In the app, you can customise the watch face, so far there are 6 different faces (3 analogue, 3 digital). The device displays your phone notifications, such as text messages, but is yet to do emails. It notifies you with a vibration, powerful enough to notify you, smooth enough to not shake off your hand off. Swipe your finger on the touchscreen screen to change menu (the screen is multi-colour LEDs, just like a device's screen). There are 7 different menus, which I will tell you about individually:
Time: This is the screen that shows you the time and date etc. It is basically a regular watch face, which, as I have mentioned already, is customisable. Some faces show you your stats, which I will explain below.
Today: This menu shows you that day's stats, which are steps, heart rate (bpm), steps that hour and how many active hours you have had (out of 9 in total), miles approximately travelled, calories burned, and how many floors done (flights of stairs). Also, every hour, it motivates you to do some more steps, which I find very nice.
Exercise: You can record several different exercises in this menu, which are running, biking, weight-lifting, treadmill running, elliptical, and workouts. They record various things depending on which you do, such heart rate, distance travelled etc.
FitStar: On this mode, you can do warm-ups and workouts. It tells you what to do, with an animated, humanoid image doing the exercise, so you can visually understand what to do. So far there are 3 different things to do.
Timer: In the timer, you can do a stopwatch and a countdown. The maximum stopwatch time would probably be a few hours, the countdown's maximum is 90 minutes and 55 seconds.
Alarm: You can set alarms only on the app, and they wake you up with a rather violent vibration, but is fine when you are asleep. A practical mode, although sometimes I use an alarm clock as a backup.
Settings: In this menu, you can adjust things such as the gyroscope, brightness, bluetooth connection and the heart rate sensor. It also shows you the regularity information, and the version number. Also there is the shutdown button (I highly recommend not pressing this, as I have had enough setup struggle already.
The charger is good, in my opinion. You have to press both of your thumbs down on the watch to pop it out, and then you can insert it in, and close the lid. It shows a battery of how much charge there is inside, which is very useful. Some people say it is impractical, but I find it fine. It's like any other USB lead, so you can use device plugs, and it is best with the mains. It takes about 1-2 hours to fully charge, and lasts for about 4-5 days.
Overall: The Blaze is, in my opinion, and quite a lot of other people's, the best fitness watch to date. It motivates you, does everything a watch is expected to do, and much more. I would recommend this to someone rather than recommending another Fitbit such as a Charge 2 or an Alta. They're good as well, but if you want to get fit in style, the Blaze is the one for you.
