I have a Fitbit Blaze for sale - including two leather straps (black and brown) in addition to the original rubber strap.

 

Asking $200.

What's the water resistance on the blaze?  I might be interested but want something that can do swim tracking.  I've looked at the ionic but apparently some of their technical specs refer to it only being splash\sweat\rain proof and other places say it does swim tracking and is rated to 50M...  curious about the blaze though.

Just to interject - I have been swimming with the Ionic since Xmas and it's doing great so far.  To be fair I'm not exactly going deep in the pool, but it works fine even when I wear it in the shower as well.

(sorry Mauricio, OT but)

 

Good to know.  Yeah I came across a thread for the ionic where their official support said that water damage is covered by their warranty because it is designed for swim tracking - so they're obviously reasonably confident in the water resistance on it.  That's why I'm curious if the blaze advertises swim tracking or not.

The Blaze (and Surge and all other Fitbit except the ionic) are not waterproof. You cannot swim with it.

@freitasm The Blaze comes in a box or just the FitBit?
