48

Whether you have recently purchased a Fitbit Blaze or you are just looking for a new fitness tracker to replace your existing one, you are probably looking for a little bit of advice to make your decision easier. To help you out, I’ve put together a short review of what I’ve learned about the new Fitbit Blaze.

Timer

Having a timer on your fitness device isn’t always the most effective way to monitor your progress. You should know how to set up your Fitbit Blaze properly so that it gives you the best possible information. You should also know what to expect out of your device. Aside from the usual suspects, such as calorie burn and heart rate, you may be surprised to learn that Fitbit Blaze has a variety of features to help you improve your fitness level.

There are a variety of features that make the Fitbit Blaze one of the most versatile fitness trackers available. For example, you can track your heart rate and use the device to track how long you sleep. You can also customize the notifications you receive and even reject incoming phone calls. You can also adjust the device’s settings to better suit your hand size and style.

GPS

Unlike most smartwatches, the Fitbit Blaze doesn’t have a built-in GPS, but it does allow for connected GPS. This feature allows the watch to track your GPS route when your phone is nearby.

It also features an altimeter, which calculates your altitude based on atmospheric pressure. However, the altimeter has some issues. It sometimes records a low reading, which is usually caused by road vibrations. If you’re serious about your fitness, you should buy a more reliable device.

The Blaze also has a nice, large color touchscreen display. It’s not a full-fledged smartwatch, but it’s a decent fitness tracker. You can set reminders to move, which helps you to achieve hourly mini-goals. The stats from the Blaze sync with your Fitbit dashboard.

Breathe exercises

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or an old hand at wearable tech, you probably already know that Fitbit Blaze is one of the best fitness trackers on the market. Blaze boasts several innovative features like SmartTrack and automatic sleep tracking, all of which are designed to help you reach your fitness goals. In addition to tracking your steps, Blaze can even send you reminders to walk or run.

If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, Blaze can even record your breathing and automatically alert you when you need a breather. The device also features a vibration mode and a battery life of up to five days. It’s worth noting that Blaze isn’t waterproof, so don’t expect to go swimming with it.

Notifications from third-party apps

Whether you are using your Fitbit Blaze with an iPhone or Android device, you may have noticed that notifications from third-party apps don’t seem to be working. If this is the case, it’s time to make use of some handy tips and tricks to get your notifications working again.

First, you’ll want to open your Fitbit app. Next, you’ll want to enable notifications from third-party apps. Depending on your smartphone, you may need to manually open Bluetooth to get notifications to work.

Next, you’ll want to choose the appropriate third-party app. If you are using an iPhone, you’ll want to select either Apple Music or Spotify. For Android devices, you’ll want to use Fit Notifications. The app will allow you to choose specific apps to receive notifications, including emails, text messages, calendar events, and more.

Looks

Despite its design, the Fitbit Blaze looks more like a smartwatch than a bracelet. The design is similar to the Samsung Gear Fit 2 and the Apple Watch.

While it looks more like a traditional smartwatch, Fitbit’s Blaze packs a lot of fitness tracking features. It can track sleep, track steps, and has a dedicated exercise app. It also provides smart notifications. You can set alarms, view your calendar, and get reminders to move.

The Fitbit Blaze also has an optical heart rate sensor. It can track resting and total heart rate and shows the number of floors you’ve climbed, and the calories you’ve burned. It also has a five-day battery life.

The Fitbit Blaze’s interface features six main apps. There are also four watch faces that you can use to see your activity data. You can change the watch faces on the go. The watch faces include a clock, a daily summary, a fitness view, and a clock face for music playback.
