So far, things have been overall great!
It is a bit more bulky than my beloved watch, so it does catch on long sleeves. It is a little annoying to try and view it when I am wearing a jacket, but it is a small annoyance that I can live with. I don't find it bothersome to wear while I am sitting at my computer (which I did have a problem with when I wore my watch). I bought a size small, which fits well, but I probably could have gotten away with a large (despite the fact that I have tiny wrists and it is a fraction of an inch smaller than the recommended size for large).
It is by no-means femenine, but as far as fitness watches go, it is generally unisex. I also don't have the gap that I usually have with fitness devices where my wrist curves but my watch face doesn't, so I end up with gaps under the top and bottom of the face, so that is a definite plus (there is a small gap, but not annoyingly bad).
As a watch, it is one of the best executions of a watch on a fitness device that I have seen. I would love to see the screen have the option to default back to the time screen. It currently stays on whichever screen you last viewed, so sometimes that is frustrating, but nothing insurmountable.
The backlight is spot on. The sensitivity seems to be perfect so I have yet to look at my watch and not see what it is trying to tell me.
Notifications are good, but it only does calls and texts. I am not sure I really need more notifications, personally.Read more ›
The FitBit Surge is FitBit's flagship fitness "superwatch". It integrates a few capabilities of a smart watch, like text/call notifications and music control, into a GPS/heart rate fitness tracker. It tracks your sleep as well.
UPDATE: My original review was made after one week of use with the Surge. I then went through and updated every section of this review after over a month of use. I have had the Surge since early December of 2014, and it is now late September of 2015. Although I have not had the chance to test thoroughly, FitBit has recently released an update that adds stopwatch support and cues during your workout, as well as improving battery life. I have been able to test GPS while cycling (yes, they added that also!) and it is very accurate. Over the past (almost) year, it has had some wear and tear, and a couple tiny sections of rubber on the edges were banged and peeled off slightly. Not bad for the wear it has gone through, though. Although it took a long time, they have fixed just about all of the issues I had with the Surge mentioned below, and I am changing my review from four stars to five stars.
Heart Rate Tracking:
This is probably the most important feature of this tracker, so I'll go into a bit of detail here. It is accurate, if it is worn snugly. When exercising, it's best to wear it a notch tighter than you normally would so that it stays in place, and a few inches up from your wrist so that it can get an accurate reading. It takes a few minutes for the reading to stabilize.Read more ›
I was so geared up to buy Surge as soon as it came out. Then I read the reviews. The primary feature I wanted it for, the Heart Rate Monitor, was getting some bad press. Reviewers said that it didn't work during rigorous exercise. Many reviewers. For several months I was certain I wouldn't get Surge. I'll hold off until technology improves. Meanwhile, I was using my One and Polar, chest strap, manually entering in workouts, wishing that the Surge performed as it was supposed to.
Then my employer started a fitness campaign and I received a $110 credit to purchase a fitness monitor. Since I already had the One, and I read a few more favorable reviews about how to actually use the Surge to make the HRM accurate; I decided I would try out the Surge for myself, knowing that half of it would be on the company dime and I could return it within 30 days if I didn't like it.
When it arrived, I opened it immediately and set it up. I read the instructions but I didn't need to really. It was very intuitive and user-friendly. Right away I noticed how even though the watch has a large face, it seemed to be designed just so that I hardly noticed it was on my wrist. It was very comfortable. I liked everything about it so far, I don't really use the music or text notifications features, but they seemed to work fine when I tested them.Read more ›
