The Fitbit Blaze – love it or hate it
Fitbit Blaze R3 999 .... -
You’ll either love this cool-looking fitness tracker, or you’ll hate it. Love because, if you achieve your goals, you will feel so good. Hate because, with every glance at your wrist when you’re using the Fitbit Blaze as a standard watch, you’ll be reminded of what a lazy bum you are.
The comfortable, smart fitness watch comes in black, blue or plum. But there is also a luxury line in stainless steel and leather. The band is interchangeable. You can pop out the module from the frame. The LCD touch screen of this nifty gadget takes you through the various functions of a fitness tracker. My favourites are the step-by-step workouts, which came in handy on those days when I was not prepared. I enjoyed knowing that my steps where counted, but I must admit that when the “10 000 steps achieved” message popped up, I found it hard to believe. Ten thousand steps! That is a lot of movement, at least that is what I thought before using the Blaze.
Unfortunately, this gadget is not waterproof and does not have a built-in GPS. However, you can download an app to your phone that will help you determine the distance covered. It also allows some of your phone notifications to pop up on the watch.
The Fitbit Blaze monitors your heart rate, sleep, and calorie and liquid intake (if you note it down on the app).
It’s pretty pricey, but much cheaper than an Apple Watch.
