The Fitbit Surge is a fitness tracker that monitors your steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, floors climbed and sleep quality. But the Surge offers three advanced features that are not found on most fitness trackers: the device is GPS-enabled, so you can use it to map outdoor exercises like running and hiking, it includes a built-in heartrate monitor, and offers continuous heart rate monitoring, and it even includes some smartwatch features — you can view texts and incoming calls to your phone right on your wrist.
At $250, the Surge is at the high end of the price range of fitness trackers, and costs $100 more than the Charge HR, another Fitbit device that also offers continuous heart rate monitoring. But unlike the Charge HR, the Surge’s GPS feature puts it on par with GPS watches like the TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio, which also goes for $250, on Amazon.
I recently wore the Surge day and night for a week to see how well it performed as both an activity tracker and a sports watch. Here’s how it went.
