Fitbit Surge under review

The Fitbit Surge is a GPS sports watch that delivers plenty of bang for your buck. Whether running, cycling or working out in the gym, the Fitbit Surge can track your sessions and give you plenty of data on your performance.

Compared to older Fitbit models, the Surge is reasonably priced to other sports watches on the market. That isn't to say the Surge is a run of the mill piece of equipment, because it is anything but ordinary.

The Fitbit Surge comes in three different colours, giving you options when wearing it to work, school or out on the town. The Surge comes in black, blue and tangerine, and the rubber wristband offers maximum comfort when hitting that last hill or starting that final mile.

The Fitbit Surge is not a smartwatch, but you will get incoming call alerts, missed call messages and text messages.

The Surge is simple to use and the touch screen offers everything you need at your fingertips. The Surge is the perfect watch for fitness tracking, and partnering your smartphone and Surge together will kick your workouts up a notch.

All of your tracked activity will be synced to the Fitbit app on your phone, so you can view the data immediately. But if you prefer to use your watch to see your performance, it is incredibly easy to do. Simply swipe or toggle through your workouts and you will get the desired information you crave.

Along with being able to track your workouts and fitness activity, you will be able to monitor your sleep patterns. By using the Surge to monitor your sleep you can understand why you don't feel rested in the morning.

Compare the Fitbit Surge

One of the best features on the Fitbit Surge is the heart rate monitor. The monitor allows users to accurately keep their heart rates and find out exactly what their optimal heart rate for weight loss is by using the Fitbit Surge.

Another great function you will find on the Surge is GPS. Not all sports watches come with GPS included and to access GPS you must pair it with your smartphone. The Surge offers connectivity right from the word go, and you no longer need to run with a Fitbit sport watch and smartphone at the same time. With fast GPS satellite locking, the Surge is one of the best sports watches on the market today.

Our opinion on the surge

While some sports watches only track running, walking or cycling, the Fitbit Surge can do far more. Lifting weights, golf, yoga, tennis, hiking and much more can be tracked by using the Fitbit Surge.

Having each session automatically synced to the Fitbit app is great and saves time. Once everything is uploaded, you can see a wealth of statistics on your performance. All of the information will not only help you become healthier and fitter, but it will inform you on what activities are best for your health.
