Ok, my good friends at AT&T have been letting me review fitbits for some time now. I’ve tried almost everyone of them and the Fitbit Blaze is by far my favorite one. It’s big like a watch but not at all heavy. The band fits comfortably on my wrist and anytime I flip my wrist towards my face the screen comes on. If for some reason it doesn’t come on all I have to do is hit the switch on the right of the band and the screen comes on. The Fitbit Blaze tells me the time and and how many calories I have burned on the front page. From there I can scroll over to see all my stats. (steps, distance, calories burned, stairs, and my heart rate) I love measuring my heart rate. That’s right guys, the screen that is not only in color is also a touch screen. The battery lasts up to 5 days which I also LOVE LOVE LOVE, I find it’s a little less for me but I’m looking at my screen quite a bit. To charge it the fitbit itself pops out of the band and has it’s own charging device. (that might be the only drawback is that the charging unit is different) Good news, you can switch the band if you want. I think I might look for a new color/leather band instead of the plastic black and silver one that I have.
This device also will allow you to answer phone calls, see texts and other alerts. You can also adjust your music playing from your phone from the fitbit. It’s so cool. The device also measures your sleep and can wake you up with silent alarms. I need to start getting up earlier so I’m going to start using this feature later this week.
Another thing that is amazing with the Fitbit Blaze is the ability to measure your exercise or see an entire workout with a countdown.

You may remember that I reviewed the Fitbit Charge in briefly in January and then Beeb reviewed it fully in April. Both are amazing devices and depending on your needs perfect for a Mother’s Day. In fact, a fitness band was on my Mother’s Day list before I received this sample from AT&T.
