Fitbit Surge GPS sportswatch review

 

Steps, distance, pace, track, heart rate, this thing can do it all

Built-in heart rate monitor ; Built-in GPS ; A good all-round performer

Dashboard interface could be better ; Maps don't look accurate enough

Fitbit Surge review: Fitbit's top-end GPS watch and fitness tracker feels like it needs an update

 

The Fitbit Surge was one of the first watches to include all-day fitness tracking, GPS, smartphone notifications and an optical heart-rate sensor. But a lot has changed since it was first announced in 2014. The competition has since caught up to Fitbit...

The Fitbit Surge has an always-on display, all-day fitness and heart-rate tracking, and GPS to track a variety of activities. Fitbit's software is still one of our favorites and has the largest social base

The design feels old and clunky. It can't be worn while swimming or when in the shower. The heart rate data isn't accurate and notifications are limited to text messages and calls

The only GPS-capable Fitbit will appeal to casual runners, but more serious athletes should look elsewhere.

Useless Wristband

 

I got my first Surge 2 years ago. 12 months later the wristband broke, Fitbit replaced it and 10 months later the wristband bubbled and they won't fix it nor replace it. Don't waste your money it will only last a year. They expect you still buy their...

Average product, can be improved

 

Bought this at one of the highest price in comparison to the other fitbits, yet its the one I like the least, both in terms of looks and quality. It feels to me more of a mix between the Fitbit Alta HR and the Fitbit Blaze. It fulfills the basic...

Good tool to help you keep an eye on your activity levels

 

The Fitbit is great for monitoring basic activity levels like calories, steps, floors climbed, heart rate etc. It gives you a brief overview and also syncs well with the app, which I like to check once in a while. Working in an office means that I...

Band breaks & you cant replace them

 

I love the Fitbit surge in terms of the app where the information is downloaded & the tracking however I have only had my watch for 15 months and the band is starting to break away from the screws at the back of the watch. You cant buy replacement...

I loved my Fitbit Surge

 

I have used my Fitbit for 18months and it is still going. I have started running and found it was really helpful to focus on my pace and goals. I use it as a step counter too. It also worked for workouts and yoga style activity. There were other...

Could've been better

 

For the price in which I paid, I expected an extremely durable and life changing product, but instead I received an average product made by Fitbit. I will give it the benefit of the doubt by stating that it did measure my heart rate, steps, time and...

Not durable

 

This is my second Fitbit Surge... A replacement for the original Fitbit. My first one only lasted a few months, as both bands lifted & separated from clock face. My replacement has been better, but the same problem is with the bands separating from the...
