Fitbit, a company very popular for their fitness bands and wearables launched their Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness watch in India in January, stating that the watch will be available for purchase in March. And today, they have made their smartwatch available in the market for a price of INR 19,999.
Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch comes packed with a few great features including FitStar On screen workouts, connected GPS, PurePulse heart rate tracking and SmartTrack automatic exercise recognition. Along with all these features, it comes with notifications for calls, text messages and calendar events.
It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and this connectivity allows the watch to show you the notifications and also interact with them directly from the watch. You can accept or decline your calls from the watch itself. Other than this, when listening to music, the watch will allow you to browse your playlist, and change volume right from the watch so you don’t have to look at your phone to do that.
The battery on the Fitbit Blaze smart fitness watch is claimed to last 5 days of usage, and this is something that should be tempting enough to get this device. Most of the smartwatches that you get in the market today offer only about a day or two worth of battery life. Now I know that this smart fitness watch doesn’t offer features that other smartwatches do, but still it’s good to see 5 days of battery life on a wearable with a display.
The Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch is available in two sizes, small and large. Apart from the two sizes, the watch comes in 3 different colours for the band, in both the sizes. The available colors are Black, Blue, and Plum. The screen on all three of these watches has a silver frame, only the band colour changes. Apart from this, metallic and leather straps for the watch were also announced, but they are not available as of now.
