Rich Fwrote a review of Fitbit Surge GPS Watch + HR Monitor on November 3, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As far as technical use goes, I probably could have gotten away with buying the Fitbit Charge HR. I like the HR function, but it's not crucial to me during exercise. This watch is replacing my current watch and I really like the size of the Surge, as well as the full touch screen, text message preview and music control functions.
So far I've used it for hiking, running, working out, and just daily use, and I couldn't be happier.
I'm not training for anything in particular so I don't use the data in ways that some people might. I mainly use this as a motivator and surprisingly find great value in the app - even the cheesy social/challenges part. Overall, I'm stoked on this product and will continue to recommend to friends.
