Best workout Watches
The Fitbit Surge is the most expensive Fitbit model currently available. It offers GPS, unlike the rest of the Fitbit line. GPS can pinpoint your location, providing more accurate fitness data. However, since GPS relies on satellite signals, it may not work perfectly indoors, during storms, or in areas where trees or buildings cause signal interference.
In addition to GPS, the Surge also monitors your heart rate, tells the time, and gives you call and text notifications. Unlike some other fitness trackers out there, the Surge doesn’t need to be told when you are going to sleep, since it has automatic sleep detection functionality. If you’re looking for a smartwatch that’s rugged enough to handle your workout regime, this “superwatch” is a solid choice.
- Available in three sizes to ensure best fit
- Touchscreen display
- Works with over 150 leading smartphones
- Kind of bulky
- Only about seven days of battery life (some users may prefer wearables with a replaceable battery)
- Some users find battery depletes rapidly when using GPS
