The Fitbit Surge is a watch designed for fitness first. It has GPS, making it great for runners that want to track distance, pace, elevation climbed, and review routes. It also features continuous heart rate monitoring, and can track calories burned, steps taken, and flights climbed. Fitbit Surge has multiple different sport modes, or you can automatically record workouts with SmartTrack. You can also see all of this data on the watch display while you're on the go.
Activity data is then sent wirelessly to your smartphone running the Fitbit app. There, you can review activity data visually with charts and graphs. You can share this data with your friends and compete on a leaderboard. In addition to tracking activity data, the Surge can relay call and text notifications from your smartphone as well as allow you to control music playback.
The Fitbit Surge is a great choice if you're looking for a capable watch geared more toward health and fitness. President Obama was even spotted wearing one on an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.' Fitbit Surge is available in small, large, and x-large sizes. Color options include black, blue, and tangerine. It retails for $249.95.
