Fitbit Blaze

The Fitbit Blaze is a great fitness tracker in almost every way - step and sleep tracking are very accurate, and it's a great all-around fitness companion. This is no smartwatch, though. Notifications are extremely limited, there are only four watch faces, it doesn't come with GPS on board, and yet again, this is another Fitbit device with no waterproofing. If you can do without the LCD display, you'd be better off going with the Charge HR.

What we like

- 5-day battery life
- Display is good enough to see outdoors
- Step and sleep tracking work very well
- Smooth and snappy performance
- Comfortable to wear all day

What we don't like

- A device this big (and pricey) should have GPS on board
- Notifications are glitchy and limited
- No waterproofing
- Only 4 watch faces available, none are very good
- Inconsistent heart rate monitoring
- Expensive interchangeable bands
- Charging method is very awkward
