Fitbit and Apple were not even competing until the recent past. While Fitbit is a leader in producing fitness tracking devices, Apple is the undisputed leader in the smart phone market. Apple’s smart watch has some apps dedicated for fitness freaks. Fitbit on the other hand had no inkling to Apple. But the launch of Fitbit Blaze changed all that. Even though Fitbit repeatedly claimed that, it has just launched a fitness tracker. The watch’s email tracking, called id and several other features made comparison with Apple’s smart watch inevitable in the market
Design and Build – Apple is undoubtedly the winner in this segment. Blaze is no comparison for Apple’s impressive features. An Apple watch can be recognized from a distance owing to its sleek metallic features and numerous strap options ranging from sporty to classy. Fitbit blaze on the other hand has launched a series of colourful straps for those who like to keep it funky. Fitbit blaze though claims to be water resistant. But Apple 2 watches can easily match the same
Undoubtedly Apple smart watch is the best for those who want a powerful and functional smart watch. Fitbit blaze can provide call, text, calendar alerts and even notification from apps like gmail and social media sites. But one cannot react to that as it does not have a microphone, speaker, Wifi or NFC. Apple smart watch on the other hand supports multiple apps and gives you the ability to interact with others while on the move. For example – You can also reply to messages using the Apple watch which is clearly impossible in case of Fitbit Blaze.
The Fitbit Blaze is definitely the better activity and fitness tracker among the two. Apple smartwatch is not much far behind in this area also according to major statistics. Fitblaze has an altimeter feature which counts every activity and measures the altitude as well to give you a record of the calories burnt or steps climbed at the end of the day.Apple smart watch does not have this feature. But one can use a third party app for this, if it is the only constraint bothering you.
Fitbit Blaze does not have an integrated GPS .So one has to carry their phone everywhere along with the smart watch to track locations accurately. Apple smart watch supports only iOS, whereas Fitbit can support Android, iOS and even Windows powered devices.
