The newest Fitbit fitness tracker does more than count your steps—it’s a complete GPS watch to help you optimize your performance. 

Your daily data syncs automatically with an app on your smart phone, and you also have the option of recording workouts on Strava simultaneously. The Surge helps you track your overall fitness (not just workouts) by monitoring the quality of your sleep and allowing you to log your food through barcode scans.

The large swipe-screen display is simple to use and allows you to easily see real-time stats (distance, time and heart rate) with a quick glance during workouts. You can log running, cycling and other workouts. The only drawback for triathletes is that it doesn’t work for the swim—it’s only sweat-, splash- and rain-proof.

You can also receive text and call notifications so you’re always connected. The battery lasts up to seven days.

Continuously and automatically track your heart rate (strap-free!).

Available in three sizes and three colors, the band can fit a wide range of wrist sizes, and the sleek design transitions from workout to work day without looking too “sporty.”
