    Hi, any reviews of the Surge from users? Its released in UK shortly and I'm considering going from Flex to Surge. I use Runtastic to track my exercise, but think it would be great to have a tracker on my wrist. Any pro's or cons? thanks in advance

    I have a Surge and love it. Key is to hike it up your arm a bit ahead of any serious activity (walking it's fine a finger above wrist bone). Else, you risk it not calculating your HR correctly. So far, so good!

    Just got mine. I had to exchange a small for a large. It runs really small, especially since you're expected to move it up your arm a bit for exercising.

    I love love love my Surge! I don't do as much cardio, and spend most of my time on the weights. I can get a relatively accurate count of my calories burned during my weight workouts and the app/website keeps track of it. I have not explored everything on the surge yet...waiting for warm weather!

    Mine arrived yesterday - its not perfect but its certainly a fantastic piece of kit.

    There is an excellent review here - http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2015/01/fitbit-surge-depth-review.html - it is very long!

    I got one, hat it for about a month and loved it! There were a few things I didn't like about it. For example, there is not yet GPS tracking for cycling, they don't suggest much water exposure at all, and I have really small wrist and I was constantly getting a hr reading about 50 bpm advice what mine actually was.

    Fantastic piece of hardware, but I ended up turning it, to get the Garmin vivoactive. Basically same device but longer battery, can be worn swimming and other water, had cycling tracking, and a few other features I think I might like.

    I've been a fitbit charge/user for two years and a Surge owner since I upgraded last month. I love it!! I have this continuous fear I will scratch the screen. I felt my Force/Charge was rugged from a scratch resistance standpoint... I am thinking about getting one of those films for over it...

    Yes I get that feeling that I going to scratch the screen as well esp when I was using it on the treadmill and kept hitting the sides! Think I may wear it so the screen is on the other side of my wrist, hopefully the readings will still be ok!

    I had the same idea. Today I planned to test it out during my treadmill routine. Keep us posted!

    I was reading through the guide and it said specifically not to wear the display bit on the inside of the wrist so I thought better not!

    I came across this though...

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY SURGE!!! I asked for it as a Birthday present and I've been using it now for five days. It's an amazing tool! It's nice to see your daily stats.

    I would love to get the surge! I have a flex is it worth the upgrade if I already have a flex and a Samsung neo watch?
