Fitbit is a company that strives to make the seemingly impossible task of getting healthy not only achievable, but interactive and enjoyable. Though there are many reasons for consumers to choose the Fitbit Blaze, one of main reasons include the fact that it is much cheaper than its competitors. In fact one scholar said “the highest-end Fitbit product is $100 cheaper than Apple Watch 's cheapest version” (Morrison). Another reason is the Fitbit Blaze is sold in fitness stores and some retail stores which makes it more accessible than its competitors who market heavily online.

Utilizing creative commercials that focus on getting outside and being active would go very far in boosting sales of the Fitbit Blaze.

Branching out to more retail stores will help Fitbit become more accessible to people who do not regularly frequent fitness stores. It seems that the next logical progression for Fitbit would be to market themselves as a fashionable accessory. With this move, Fitbit could start regaining some of the ground lost to another main competitor, the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is known for having a sleek design and a futuristic style and is in high demand. If Fitbit were to create a new product line that focused mainly on a reimagined aesthetically pleasing model, it would most likely do very well the current market.
