There is software on the watch itself and applications for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The watch software is intuitive and greatly easy to use. There are very few customizations that you are able to make to the Blaze software and no third party apps are supported. As I stated earlier, this is a fitness focused device and not a smartwatch.
Fitbit Sports Watches
It goes without saying that there's no technical or economical reason why top-end fitness trackers from the likes of Fitbit and Jawbone shouldn't be packing GPS connectivity. That's the message from Brandon Oakes, sales manager at OriginGPS.
Oakes explained that installing one of Origin's tiny GPS modules would come at a cost of "single digit dollars".
What calls for special attention is that the world’s most recognizable wearable brand—Fitbit—has a new product for consumers to be excited about. After releasing the Fitbit Blaze about a month ago, which was seemingly Fitbit’s entry into the smart watch market, the company has finalized the Fitbit Alta for sale.
The Blaze boasts staple Fitbit features , while also incorporating smartphone-based qualities.
In consequence, the device’s PurePulse Heart Rate gives heart rate readings, and wearers can connect the Blaze to the GPS on their compatible smartphone to map routes. There’s no built-in GPS.
The Blaze comes in three sizes: small (fits wrists 5.5 to 6.7 inches in circumference), large (fits wrists 6.7 to 8.1 inches in circumference) and extra-large (fits wrists 8.1 to 9.3 inches in circumference).
Runtastic, recently acquired by Adidas and best known for its fitness apps follows up the Orbit, its first fitness tracker with the Runtastic Moment Fun ($129.99). It's a watch with a built-in accelerometer that looks similar to the Withings Activite Pop and tracks active minutes, steps, calories burned, and sleep. Further, it also tells the time with a traditional however stylish round face that comes in plenty of colors and styles.
