It comes with a limited warranty but you can purchase an extended warranty. I never buy extra insurance/warranty because I always think that I've spent enough on the initial purchase and it should last. In the cases it doesn't then the product isn't worth buying in the first place. This is why I like to buy online so I don't have to deal with anyone upselling me an extended warranty in person. The nice person at the store is a commissioned salesperson so it's what they get paid to do.

​My Final Opinion

This is a luxurious watch to be sure. It also costs a whopping $249.95. That's what you will pay anywhere for the Fitbit Blaze. If you don't have a fitness watch yet, this is a great entry level buy. For your money you will also get a device housing, charger and USB Cable.

Charging this watch only takes about an hour and will last 3-4 days. The app works great on iOS, android and is desktop friendly.​ This is a very exciting watch to own and comes with a lot of spectacular features.

This Fitbit Blaze is a real triumph in the world of smart watch technology and will really be thrilling for you to own. I highly recommend it!
