For people starting out with fitness, the Fitbit Blaze is a decent all-rounder and the best tracker the company has produced to date. The Blaze offers a spectrum of stats for most pursuits, even if they're often imperfect in nature. Having to take a phone to benefit from GPS accuracy, wayward HR stats at peak exercise and undercooked FitStar workouts ensure the Blaze pales in comparison to specialist fitness wearables... but its size, diversity, user friendly stats and strong app make it easy to recommend for beginners.
Fitbit's first real smartwatch gets a lot of things right, including comfort, features and price, but it's not a slam-dunk design for everyone.
