These are never apples to Apple comparisons, and Digital Trends‘ review is filled with errors, but the result is interesting:
Comparing the specs of a wearable is often a little different than comparing a smartphone. While the smartphone is largely considered to be the center of your digital life, the smartwatch is really only an extension of that — and needs to handle a lot less than the smartphone.
Why or how is it more difficult to compare a smartwatch to another smartwatch than it is to compare a smartphone to another smartphone?
So which device is more powerful? Well, we don’t really know. Fitbit hasn’t told us exactly what’s under the hood of the Fitbit Blaze.
But on specifications, Watch wins. On design, display, and durability, Watch wins. On battery life, Fitbit Blaze wins. On software, Watch wins. On price, Fitbit Blaze wins but mostly because the $199 price tag was compared against the much more expensive Watch Series 2. Series 1, which contains all the goodies in the comparison, makes a more accurate comparison.
