Note: Please see bottom of post for the most recent update.
I’ve worn the Fitbit Blaze for about 3 years now, and I’ve worn the same band for 3 years too. I don’t know why I’ve never gotten a new band, but I guess I just had better things to think about… until last week. Last week I decided that I was sick of my purple Fitbit Blaze band and wanted something new. So, I got the Wearlizer band with frame from Amazon, and I just thought I would do a quick review on it in case you are in the market for a new band and frame for your Fitbit Blaze.
It’s Looks A Little Darker Than In The Amazon Pictures
It’s all dependent on the light, but it goes from a lighter pink gold to a darker pink gold depending on the light, background, and your eyes. It doesn’t matter what color it turns, I really like it. The pink is what I wanted, and that’s what I got!
I don’t know what you call that design, but I would call it cross stitch, because that’s what it looks like to me. Only, it’s made of stainless steel and not thread.
Am I wrong?
The Wearlizer Fitbit Blaze Band Came In A Box
Not much to say about this. It was in there nicely, but the box had scratches and scuffs all over it. That said, it’s a box, so it’s not really a big deal.
The Band Makes My Old Fitbit Blaze Tracker Look Bad
Like I said, I’ve had my tracker for about 3 years. From far away, you can’t tell how bad the tracker looks.
But when you get close up, that’s a different story. I didn’t realize how scuffed up my tracker was until I got a new band for it! Especially a pretty band that I like.
The Wearlizer Band Came With This Blue Protective Cover
At first, I thought it weird that there was a blue strip just below the frame, but then I realized it was just a cover for it so it wouldn’t get scratched. I like that the frame was covered on top and on the side like this.
The Wearlizer Band Has A Magnet Clasp
This is how I had it closed at the start, and I thought it was going to be way too bulky for me. It was a few minutes later when I realized you can unravel that and get a much more even look.
The magnet holds really well. Sometimes at night when I move around too much, I’ll wake up and the magnet will be slightly shifted to the right or left. But it hasn’t come undone.
In the daytime, when I’m not tossing and turning, it’s pretty darn secure. I can’t see you being able to knock it in a way that it’s going to move around when you are awake.
More Colors… More Purchases
There are 8 colors to choose from on the amazon.ca site.
- Black (One normal frame and one full frame)
- Pink (with a full frame)
- Rose Gold
- Pink Gold
On the amazon.com site they have 6 colors to choose from including:
- Champagne Gold
- Rose Gold
It Fits Like A Glove
Because of the magnet, there are infinite positions to adjust it to, so you can make sure it’s perfectly snug around your wrist no matter how small or big it is.
I got a large size, but they also offer a small size. I wear my Fitbit Blaze just above my wrist.
My wrist isn’t tiny, but I don’t think it’s that big! I measured my wrist and it’s about 7 inches around. Where I wear it, there is about 1 1/2 inches more room to tighten that band.
Therefore, if your wrist is 5 1/2 inches or smaller, then I would get the small band. Although, in the description on Amazon, it says that the small is for 5.5 to 8.6 and the large is for 6.2 to 10 inches. So if you are smaller than 5.5 inches, you may be out of luck.
If you are not sure, you can contact Wearlizer on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Or you can contact them on their website here. I’ve never had to contact them, so I can’t say how good they are at customer service.
I Have Seen Some Negative Reviews On Amazon, But Most Are Good
I received a good product. The only complaint I have is that it can pull on my arm hair a bit, but that has only happened a few times and I shave my arms anyway, so that will be taken care of soon.
On Amazon, I have seen some negative Wearlizer reviews. One person got a scratched up frame – like really scratched up, as if someone had been wearing it roughly for a year while and then packaged it and sent it out to her. One other person said that the color changed within a month, but didn’t have a picture to show the change.
That’s why I like ordering from Amazon. It’s so easy to return it if something does go wrong, and then you can get a refund. You get a month after you receive the product to return it, so, if you need to, make sure you do it quickly because a month can go by fast!
I’ve also seen many positive reviews like mine. I guess time will tell if something goes wrong with this band and frame, but for now, I’m really happy with it and will definitely be ordering more.
If something goes wrong, I will update this review to reflect that.
Update: December 14th, 2018 – It’s been about 3 months since I bought this Wearlizer band, and I’ve noticed a few things are going wrong. First, the color is fading and I can see a grey color coming through. I still see the pink, and I’m not sure anyone else would notice, but in the light when I look at it it’s faded in many spots. I’m not sure why this happened. Second, it slips down all the time. I like to wear it a little higher above my wrist, but I can’t because it always slips down. So, you need to wear it right by your wrist. The clasp magnet does still work well though. It slides around a bit, but it’s not coming undone unless I really hit it on something. Lastly, it’s gotten some scratches on the clasp and they are really noticeable. I feel like three months isn’t that long for it to be wearing out. But, I liked the look of it so much that I still may buy another one in the future.

Update: May 27th, 2019:
The above band is toast. It faded into a grungy, dirty looking pink metal band. I never took it into the shower, but I did a lot of dishes with it and walked through a lot of snow and rain! Here’s what it looks like today.
It also smells a lot like metal, and when you have a strong sense of smell like me, you don’t want to be smelling that all the time.
Al in all, it lasted about 7 months. I think that’s pretty good. Although, it started getting dingy a few months ago. I just ignored it as best as I could until now. I should say that the magnet held for the entire 7 months, so that was nice. The fit was still good, but the look and smell weren’t.
So, I ordered a new one from the Wearilzer line and I love it!
I got the rose gold, from Amazon. I really like the color.
It’s very pretty and made me realize I need some lotion on my skin!
It doesn’t have a magnet like the other Wearlizer band. It has links and what you do is unclasp a link and remove it to make it smaller. I actually needed to watch the following YouTube video to figure it out. The instructions that came with it didn’t help me much.
I had to remove two links to make it fit good.
It will be a pain in the butt to unclasp the link when I want to take it off. The magnet was much easier for that. But, I imagine I will get used to unclasping the link and clasping it back up in no time.
In short, it’s much prettier than the first band I got. We will see how long it stays that way!
I will update.
