Fitbit Blaze isn't fully compatible with Windows Phones

Earlier this month at the Consumers Electronics Show 2016, Fitbit introduced their latest Blaze smartwatch, offering users with the ability to track several health-related metrics such as calorie count, track your sleep and much more.

The wearable is also capable of delivering phone calls, texts and calendar events notifications to your smartphone. The company mentioned that it's compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone, but it seems Windows Phone users will miss out some of the most important features the wearable has to offer -- call and text notifications (via PhoneArena). There's some issue as Windows Phone doesn't provide a GATT server, which is the technology used to provide notifications.

Fitbit said in a statement to OneTechStop,

"You will be able to sync Fitbit Blaze with your Windows Phone Bluetooth, but unfortunately call/text notification are still in the process of verification because the Microsoft Windows platform does not provide a GATT server. Fitbit leverages this technology to provide notifications on our hardware. Microsoft and Fitbit are working together to bring a solution as soon as possible."

The company is still working on it, but there's no definite timeline given about the availability of this feature. We'll update you as soon as the issue is fixed.
