With the Olympics under way people have been trying to get fit and try different sports, but keeping track isn't always easy. With one of Fitbits newest watches it's made tracking your fitness easier than ever.
It is called the Fitbit Blaze. it is one of the most stylish Fitbits they have and it does have some very nice features.
It tracks steps, calories burned, stairs climbed, active time, resting heart rate and quality of sleep. What's more, it has several sports modes, which will track particular exercises using the built-in heart rate monitor, and act as a running watch so long as you take your smartphone along to lend its GPS – more on that shortly.
FitStar – the smart workout company Fitbit bought last year – also has pride of place on the Blaze, with three guided sessions that appear on the watch: warm up/down, 7 Minute Workout and 10 Minute Abs.
It's a pretty complete set of fitness metrics that will please anyone shopping for a top end activity tracker, and there are few more advanced than the Blaze at this stage. The lack of GPS is the only real blemish on the spec sheet, but you can use Fitbit's ConnectedGPS feature if you're willing to strap on your smartphone.
The only other real omission is a smart alarm – one that's designed to wake you up in the lightest part of your sleep cycle. It's a popular feature on other trackers, but hasn't made it to the Blaze. There is a silent alarm, which uses vibrations to wake you rather than a horrible bleeping.
I have used a few of the Fitbits and I really enjoy them and think they are one of the best fitness trackers you can buy today.
