Fitbit Blaze - Best Sub $200 Smartwatch?

Fitbit, best known as the premiere fitness tracker company, has expanded its product line to include smartwatch.  Garmin already sells similar products, Vivoactive and Vivoactive HR which sells for around $150 and $200 respectively.

A lot of folks are not into the whole smartwatch thing, but they do want a great fitness tracker with basic watch features including time, alarm and basic scheduling functions.  Looking at the sales numbers and review rating at various sites, Fitbit may have delivered a killer smartwatch that costs under $200.

In a nutshell, Fitbit Blaze is a glorified Fitbit Charge HR with several key "smart" features and a large color screen. First, the Blaze can receive texts, shows incoming phone calls and calendar reminders. It can also work as a remote control for music playback on your phone.

Compared to the market leading smartwatches such as Apple Watch and Samsung Gear S2, it is missing some fancy smart features at almost half the price.

In fact, Fitbit Blaze is much better at doing its "fitness tracking" duties than any other premium smartwatches out there.  Another huge perk is the battery life.  It can last up to 5 days on a full charge compared to other smartwatches lasting about 2 days in average.
