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 Real-time audio feedback during runs
As long as you have your phone with you, the fitness tracker will provide real-time feedback based on the workout you selected (walking/running, cycling, swimming, home workouts). Such feedback includes pace tracking (if you are above/below pace it will tell you how far off you are), as well as workout-specific feedback (for example, while cycling it can suggest when you should switch gears).
Pro Can coach you through workouts
While watching the screen on your phone, Moov Now fitness tracker can take you through workouts at home. Such workouts are push-ups, sit-ups, and cardio boxing. Cardio boxing requires 2 trackers (one for each wrist), but works similar to guitar hero where you swing as the icons move towards you.
Pro Great value for the money
The Moov Now offers you a large list of features compared to other trackers around the same price range.
Pro Fully waterproof with swimming tracking
The fitness tracker is completely waterproof, so it's a great option for swimmers. It also offers some swimming stats.
Pro Can go up to 6 months before you need to recharge it
Because it has no screen, the Moov Now fitness tracker can last up to 6 months between charges.
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 Cardio boxing requires 2 trackers
MOOV can coach you though a few different workouts, one of them being cardio boxing. Unfortunately for cardio boxing you are required to have two trackers which doubles the price for the sake of taking advantage of one feature.
Con It's a single-purpose wearable, only useful for tracking workouts
The fitness tracker doesn't have a screen or any buttons - it won't sync notifications with your phone or even display the time. It is purely focused on workouts and active time.
Con Very robotic voice
The fitness tracker's virtual coach has a very synthetic voice.
