Pro Very easy to read, even in bright sunlight
The Fitbit Blaze is a great option for outdoor use thanks to how easy it is to see the display even in bright sunlight.
The clear and bright display uses plenty of color for better clarity.
Pro Wide range of wrist straps available for a more personalized look
If you don't like the basic rubber wrist strap the comes with the tracker, you can change out the strap for more premium options.
There are many different styles available including leather, silicone, or stainless steel in a variety of colors.
Pro Tracks your activity in a large variety of ways
The Fitbit Blaze fitness tracker is feature-rich and tracks steps, calories burned, distance traveled, active minutes, floors climbed, heart-rate, and sleep time.
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 Long battery life
Wearing it continuously, you can expect around 5 days of use. If you only wear it during workouts, it will last closer to a full week. The charger is proprietary, and you simply place the Fit Smart fitness tracker on it and line up the pins.
Pro MiCoach Train and Run app
You can set weekly goals and training plans through the fitness tracker's app. One downfall is that if you have a training plan set in the app, you can't also have weekly goals. Once you have a plan selected, it will sync with your phone so you don't forget when you wanted to workout.
You can also access previous workouts and achievements from the app, along with estimated times for 5k, 10k, half, and full marathon races based on your past running performances.
Pro Easy navigation
There are 3 buttons on-board. The first toggles between battery status, time, and the different training modes. The other two take you through MiCoach and free training modes. These buttons are easy to find, even with gloves on.
Pro Colored LEDs show intensity
During workouts, the LED lights on the side change color to show how intense your workout is. White (74bpm) is none-light activity, Blue is warm up/cool down, green is calorie burn and boost endurance, yellow is intense training and muscle burn, red (182bpm) is short power bursts to develop strength and speed.
If you have a MiCouch workout selected, on-screen you will see an up or down arrow indicating whether you should pick up the pace or slack it off.
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 Not for casual use
The Adidas Fit Smart fitness tracker lacks any daily activity tracking. Instead it focus is more on workout/running.
Con Ugly design
While functional, the Fit Smart fitness tracker won't be winning any design awards. It isn't something that you'd really want to wear everyday to work.
Con No GPS
GPS is much more accurate for distance tracking than the accelerometer which the Adidas Fit Smart uses.
