Fitbit Charge 2 vs Fitbit Blaze - August 2020

Fitbit Charge 2 vs Fitbit Blaze

Fitbit has many kinds of devices, so choosing just one can be difficult. It’s important to research the products in order to find the device that best fits your needs. The following article will compare the Fitbit Charge 2 with the Fitbit Blaze.

Appearance wise, the Fitbit Charge 2 is definitely the less versatile of the two. This is because it sticks more to the generic Fitbit band look and feel, whereas the Fitbit Blaze looks more like a smartwatch. They each have easily interchangeable bands, although the Fitbit Blaze offers more options than the generic elastomer bands, including leather and stainless steel. Therefore, the Fitbit Blaze can look more like a formal watch.

When it comes to functions, they share many of the same features. For example, they each have a PurePulse heart-rate monitor, SmartTrack automatic exercise recognition, and sleep monitoring, to name a few. However, the Fitbit Charge 2 has an edge on the Blaze with its guided breathing sessions feature.

Where the Fitbit Blaze has the advantage is with its more smartwatch-esque features. While both these devices can receive call and text alerts, the Fitbit Blaze can also control your smartphones music. It also has a larger color touch screen that is far more advanced than the Fitbit Charge 2.

All and all, however, these devices are quite similar. They each have a battery life of about 5 days, and are each relatively water-resistant (though it is not recommended to swim or shower with either). As explained above, they differ slightly in features, so it depends which features your looking for. If appearance is a concern, check out the photo below, and take a look at the videos for more information.
