Pro Long battery life for being so feature-rich
While it varies somewhat, many people have been reporting that the fitness tracker usually lasts 5 full days on a single charge.
In general, the more features a tracker has, the faster it will drain the battery. 4 or 5 days is an impressive charge compared to other trackers with similar features (continuous heart rate tracking for example).
Pro Interesting design
The Blaze has a techie look to it that some may find a nice change from the usual sporty-appearance of trackers.
It is fairly lightweight and the design isn't offensive, it's something you can wear every day.
Pro Tracks calories burned very accurately
The amount of calories you burn daily is adjusted based on your weight and age. That's great, if you’re on a diet due to health issues and need precise data.
Pro Easy to wear discreetly
The pedometer is small and unnoticeable. You can put it in your pocket or attach to your belt without worrying if it's going to ruin your outfit.
Pro Extremely long battery life
The battery of this pedometer lasts about 6 months.
Pro Very accurate step count
If your attach this pedometer firmly to your pocket, or bra, it will count the number of steps you make with high precision. It’s achieved by taking your personal data – height, weight, into account.
Pro Keeps you motivated with daily and weekly goals
You have the ability to set daily and weekly goals to keep yourself motivated. The pedometer then tracks your progress with a percentage indicator in the bottom right corner.

Pro Convenient to wear
You can put it in your pocket, attach to your hip/belt, or wear around your neck and it will count your steps perfectly. Be sure to check that it’s in the right position; it doesn’t work accurately upside down.
Con Poor use of the large display
The fitness tracker's screen takes up a small amount of the front face. The glass bezels and casing take up most of the front.
Con Requires your smartphone for GPS tracking
The Blaze lacks a built-in GPS so it can't track the route of your runs on its own. It can, however, be paired with your smartphone to use its GPS and track the route that way.
Con Inconvenient to charge
To charge the Blaze fitness tracker, you need to remove the main module and lock it into its charger.
Con Inclined to rust
A big flaw in the build is that if you wear this pedometer continuously around your neck, the bolts that hold the battery in start rusting from your sweat. The housing ends up rusty and impaired.
Con Doesn’t work well if accidentally displaced
If you’re not careful about always having this pedometer in the right position (with the lanyard loop up), it tends to over-count your steps. It starts counting in random motions, jiggles and accidental sways. Keep it attached to your pocket, or bra, to get the best results.
Con You eventually have to replace the battery
Even though the battery lasts for a long time, you will be eventually required to buy a new one for $2-3 as a replacement.
Con Doesn’t connect with your smartphone
You will not be able to get notifications from your phone, control your playlist, or use the GPS.
Even though it’s light and pretty thin, this pedometer is 6 inches long, which is more than the usual pedometer’s dimensions.
Con Memory only lasts 7 days
Since the workout log is only saved for a week, you can’t monitor your overall, long-term progress.
