I got my first fitbit in March of 2013. It was a blue Zip, and for whatever reason it was on clearance at Target for $36. I had that fitbit until I forgot it was on when I dove (haha, like I dive) into the pool at LAF. They replaced it.
For Christmas of 2014, my big brother got me a used Fitbit One from one of our friends. I used my One for the next few months, until the Surge was released and Boyfriend got it for me for my birthday. Until now, when Boyfriend got me the Blaze when it released in March. Basically, I’ve had a lot of experience with Fitbit over the past three years.
I. Freaking. Love. Fitbit!
Here’s my Blaze:
Yes, that’s color. And it scrolls through what is basically your app Dashboard on this screen. It also tracks workouts with GPS (like the Surge) but definitely has improved accuracy and is way prettier:
During the workout, you can opt to control your music, and a simple swipe let’s you scroll through whatever stats you want to see (I’ve ran with this five times now, and check my pace, avg pace, time, heartrate, etc.). My Bluetooth headphones have a volume control on them, so I can control my music and complete a run without touching my phone. So. Lovely. There are also other features I haven’t even used yet, like FitStar (what seems to be a bodyweight portable workout routine? Awesome!).
The charger was not something I was expecting… It’s a little box that you shut the watch face into:
Interesting, right?! The battery life is also significantly improved over the Surge–I get a solid four days (each with at least 20 minutes using the GPS functionality) out of a charge. All in all, 5 stars from me, Fitbit!
Do you use a Fitbit? Which one do you have? If you want to be Fitbit friends, I’m KetoDeb there, too! 😊
