I know it’s an older model but still a good bit fitness tracker with built in GPS that a lot of the newer ones don’t have.

Was told it was national.

Quite big though so might not be the best for smaller wrists.

Purepulse heart rate
Activity tracking
Auto sleep + silent alarm

Great buy
reviews on these are awful, any experience?
I've had one and found it fine, but wanted one that did intervals so did end up changing to a garmin
I've had one since launch, just replaced the strap as it wore out but that was after 2 years, replacement strap was £8 from Amazon.

I like the e-ink style screen so it's got several days of power between charges (if you don't use GPS all day) tracks Strava well on it's own without your phone.

Heart rate is ok as an indicator, but as with all these devices take readings with a pinch of salt.

You can also get SMS alerts and call notifications on it too.

I've been tempted by the Apple watches but frankly for my needs my Surge is still all good.

I have one and have had it a year. Only one problem i have had is with the strap.
One email to fitbit and they sent out a new watch.
You get a two year warranty. Got a replacement after the wrist strap broke. Then the replacement didn't work and they offered to send another replacement or 50% off another model up to the Blaze range. Cannot fault their service.

yes the rubber around the screen comes off after a few months i had 4 replacements in the end i forced them to refund avoid this item the issue is it keeps breaking

My charge 2 didn’t survive the last firmware update but fortunately I had 2 weeks to go on warranty (is the only surviving one from a mass family purchase that xmas as I think they cut corners on manufacturing on certain ones to speed up/cheapen manufacture).
Hopefully they’ve learnt from this and reliability will be better now.

I track my HR daily for medical purposes using 3 devices (1 of which is a Fitbit) and they have never varied by more than 1 BPM even in the Dr's office.

I cannot speak for steps/calories etc but the HR is as accurate as you can possibly get.
