Surge is something completely new for Fitbit, and it shows, unfortunately, even if the Foundation is well made.
The Fitbit is greatest on the pedometer, tape activity, activity tracker, or whatever you please call them. According to the tests we conducted on more or less all pedometers sold in Sweden, we have also seen that Fitbits Pedometers are the most accurate and those who arguably have the most robust connection to the cell phone regardless of platform.
But it is when it has been about pedometers. Fitbit Surge can rather be described as the Mongrel between a Fitbit Charge HR, a Pebble and a simple GPS watch. We take it all one piece at a time.
As pedometer leaves Surge very little to be desired, since it is the same machinery as the other products in the series. It means really sensible step count, extremely robust connection to the cell phone, fairly blunt sleep analysis and, just as the Charge HR, continuous heart rate throughout the day. So far so very well.
A little more in the Middle we find the additional connection to your mobile phone in the form of notifications. Here we can rejoice in the already robust clutch to actually get the articles, unlike some other devices can handle. While it to the Fitbit is a company that makes pedometers and not smart watches, then notifications are very basic without any major opportunities to act on what is happening. It’s a bit better than Garmin’s counterpart, but still light years away from the Pebble and Android Wear.
The third part of it all is the most innovative part, namely the built-in GPS receiver and the option to use the watch for more in the same way as traditional sports watches from Garmin, Polar or Suunto. It’s a very ambitious effort and the support of cycling have emerged during our test period indicates that the Fitbit works hard to get it all on par with the competition among GPS watches. While lacking support for external sensors, where the speed/Cadence sensor for cycling had been cleanly, in context, in addition to the heart rate monitor. Just the heart rate monitor, which works really well as a continuous monitor, is certainly reasonably accurate but at the same time, it is just at a little more tiring and sweaty physical activity as the optical reader begins to invent nonsense. It is not so serious in most cases, but error readings are clearly more in heavier physical activity.
In addition to running and cycling, there are also other sports to play in with the Surge, including treadmills and the like that works without running the built-in GPS, but also weight training. It turns out to be quite unreliable, then the measurement is based on how many steps are recorded. A heavy leg workout doesn’t provide very many steps compared to a armpass, because the device that measures the movement sitting right on her arm, and therefore the two passports are very different with great advantage to arm pass foolishly.
On the whole, we get a rather sprawling impression of Surge, a little like it was released too early in their development curve. The pedometer is class-leading, training recording works well in some sports and the notifications work at basic level. The updates come in fairly high rate and fixed annoyance as the lack of a cycle mode show, however, that it can go from good to really good but if the sprawling Fitbit just gets a little time to develop clear clock.
