Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch

Versatile in both function and aesthetic, the Fitbit Blaze is an all-in-one fitness tracker and watch. It automatically recognizes and records workout times, which means you don't need to spend time logging workouts unless you want real-time stats. If you play sports, you can utilize a specific mode the tracker features when you get started for more detailed feedback. A continuous heart rate monitor displays the results in simplified zones that let you compare intensity levels during your workout. The Blaze is more than a fitness tracker, though. It can alert you of calls, texts, or appointments and control music when connected to a smartphone through Bluetooth. There are many different band styles and colors available, so you can tailor the look to suit your personality. ($200; amazon.com)
