In this day and age of activity trackers, it’s often overwhelming to select the right one for you. Having gone through two different trackers in about the same number of years, I still hadn’t found what I was looking for. About a month ago, the search had ended with the acquisition of the Fitbit Blaze.

Some of the main features of the Blaze include tracking of steps taken, continuous heart rate monitoring, and ability to sync with your smart phone while displaying notifications for text messages and phone calls. The device was easy to set up (less than 10 minutes). In terms of the appearance, the device is versatile enough to wear to work and to the gym.  The large square screen has a sleek look and makes texts easy to read. The Blaze can be purchased in three colourways: black, blue or plum.  Additional, easy-to-switch bands can also be purchased in a variety of other colours and materials. With Father’s Day just around the corner, this would be a perfect gift for a man of any fitness level! 

The Blaze retails for approximately $249.95 and can be found at many retailers including Walmart, Best Buy, Hudson’s Bay, and Amazon.ca.
