Fitbit Blaze versus Apple Watch

Apple watch or fitbit blaze

Both the Apple watch and the Fitbiz Blaze are top smartwatch brand but there are a lot of differences among them and let’s see what all are they.

  1. Fitbit blaze can last long up to 3 to 5 days in single charge of the battery. The Apple watch is capable to withstand only 18 hours to 1 day. So, this might be a problem for some people who travels to remote places.
  2. You can’t answer your calls on Fitbit Blaze, you can see who called you but you will need your smartphone to call them. On the other hand, you can answer your calls on Apple watch. Just move your wrist near your mouth and talk in call.
  3. Apple watch has more features than a fitness tracker or a watch. But if you just want to track your fitness and for the basic usage then go with the Fitbit blaze.
  4. Apple watch can’t able to count the flights climbed which is possible in Fitbit.
  5. Accuracy of Apple watch’s tracking activities can be very accurate compared to Fitbit Blaze.
  6. Fitbit Blaze is not recommended when swimming or taking bath because it doesn’t contain any water proof feature with it.
  7. In our opinion, Apple watch looks more stylish than the Fitbit blaze. There is 2 wide holes in top and bottom of the blaze and the Apple watch looks fully sealed. [Check: Apple Watch Regular vs Sport comparison.]
  8. The Fitbit blaze costs only $199 which the Apple regular watch costs a lot more than $200. So, if Fitbit meets your requirements then go for it and save some money.
  9. Only you want to be awakened by the alarm clock instead of your family members who are sleeping nearby. For this reason, Fitbit uses the vibration to wake you up and there will be no noise.
  10. Blaze tracks how long you sleep and how well you sleep. It has the detailed report about it which you can view.
  11. You have to remember that Apple watch supports iPhone only and you can’t pair it with an Android mobile or a Windows mobile phone.
  12. If you don’t like the Apple’s in built heart sensor then you can also connect an external heart rate sensor to it which is not possible in blaze.
  13. You can also connect external camera to your Apple watch which can’t be done in blaze.
  14. Your Apple watch can be charged wirelessly but you need to connect the cable for charging the blaze.
  15. Everyone can start to use Fitbit Blaze from the first day itself but you need to learn how to operate certain settings in Apple watch.
  16. Apple watch has NFC which you can use for the simple wireless transactions.
  17. You can control your Apple watch with voice commands but Fitbit Blaze doesn’t have the voice command option.
