Good price. Was tempted with the surge, but I couldn't see a massive difference when compared to the Charge HR. If I have to carry my phone around to Bluetooth the music, I may as well use my phone for the music and GPS.
Oh dear
How does this compare with the Garmin Vivoactive GPS smartwatch
Might have been interested if it was called the amazing ultimate super watch but this just feels as though it's missing something

​Fitbit Surge is a different game all together. I spent almost week to decide before I bought. It is all depends on what features you want in fitness tracker and ask yourself if you really going to use those features. obvious money is important to justify additional features to your need.
Have they fixed the food database yer to include uk outlets?
I was one of the lucky ones that got one from M&S for £111 just before Xmas. I've had it on since Christmas Day and I've lost no weight, I'm not sure its working!!

You can pair it with myfitnesspal free app it as a excellent food data base and bar code reader also log your exercise and calorie burn and the Fitbit will use that data.
I am also torn between Garmin Vivoactive and this Surge? Any advice would be greatly welcomed.
They are the same price on Amazon !
Ordered from boots for 133.19 - plus went thru quidco so will get some cash back as well.
cold.. better off with a polar m400 for less money

I asked for a flubit just before Xmas and paid about £135
Surely one can find something better to do with one's time than wasting time running or cycling. Don't you people have Netflix or the Internet :-)

OK, I'll bite - why is the Polar M400 any better?

I currently use a Garmin Forerunner, but dont like wearing the chest strap, so potentially considering the Fitbit.

The HR functionality isn't as accurate as a chest strap currently (the technology is still in its early stages). It's very accurate for resting/general stuff but when you start getting active it doesn't track it quite so well. After the initial reviews/friends experiences I went with the Charge & stuck to using a GPS watch/HR strap.
TBH the HR functionality/accuracy is about the only thing that has put me off, the feedback I've seen/heard suggests that the Surge isn't that bad, and that updates seem to have improved things, but hard to know if thats people trying to justify their purchases. I'm torn between getting this at the reduced price, or waiting for the next gen, which will hopefully be more accurate. I don't find the chest strap too uncomfortable usually when I'm actually running, but it tends to leaves lines/indentations for several hours afterwards, which is not ideal.
if it helps I went to the gym the other day and checked the Surge hr against the hr on the exercise bike (hand sensors) and they matched exactly. it also tracked my treadmill run accurately (distance)
Good price. They're £200 in Tesco stores!
Good Price...the misses bought me one for Christmas at £159. (Think shes telling me something!) So far very good. I also have Garmin forerunner and checked both GPS distances after a run....The Surge is quite accurate. The handy thing is the auto synch so i dont have to mess around with the forerunner cradle to upload.
In essence the Surge is like having the wife strapped to my wrist...telling me i should walk more, train more, do more, and eat less. Benefit over the wife is that i can throw it in the cupboard when it gets on my nerves....Well i could throw the wife in a cupboard, but i dont think thats the done thing...being a modern bloke
Seems decent for the price, I'm looking for a light weight fitness watch that I can use to monitor gps for distance traveled (mountain biking / football) and can monitor heart rate/calories burned (gym). No need to monitor sleep ect - telling the time would be a bonus.

Is this ideal Or any other recommendations ? Recommendations much appreciated, thanks
Would you say this is better than the Iwatch. I can't decide between this or the Iwatch

I've not got the surge, but have the charge HR (I presume they use the same optical technology for HR). I've found the heart rate to be pretty accurate when comparing it to a chest belt (I use the chest belt when at the gym so the CV equipment can moderate the resistance to a heart rate range).

Anywhere up to about 170 beats per minute the HR rarely shows more than 2 bpm difference to the treadmill readout from my polar chest strap.

The only time I've had a problem with the Charge HR's heart rate monitoring is when I've really been sweating at the gym, when it has struggled to get a reading, but it came back after I dried my wrist. This has only happened twice in about 8 months of use.

I also like having the background heart rate monitoring as you can track your resting heart rate over days / weeks / months as a measure of fitness (or lack of in my case).

The one thing that does let the Fitbit range down is there lack of "proper" waterproofing, they aren't warranted for use when swimming which is a big minus for me. I'm pretty sure the Polar products are waterproof, but then you have to wear a chest belt in the pool, which I think looks a bit weird.

imho ​​better battery life,waterproof, cheaper,superior build quality,hrm strap more accurate,built by one of the companies that innovated hrm back in the 90's,more features and along with the likes of Garmin and suunto aim at the athletic end of the market rather than fashion lifestyle trackers...
Ordered mine on Sunday, picked up yesterday and returned this morning to Boots. After 2 hours trying to fix the screen would not swipe at all - searching the internet it looks like a common fault. I have requested a replacement which I am sure will work fine, but need to check the warranty with these things - not sure if they are built to last very long.
Is there much difference in the accuracy of the heart rate between the Surge and the Charge HR?
Decided not to buy this. Gonna get the Fitbit Blaze I think.

Just bear in mind that the Blaze doesn't have a built in GPS, and therefore uses the GPS on your mobile phone (i.e. you cannot use the features of the watch without having a phone connected with it at all times). Whereas, the Surge has a built in GPS and therefore you can track your runs, steps, workouts without the need for a phone on you in person.

That's true. I thought it had GPS.

However I would expect the price of the Chatge HR and Surge to drop further with the announcement of the Blaze. May wait a little longer (Fitbit One is working fine for me at the moment.)
