Fitbit is phasing out the Surge from their lineup, but for now, you can still get your hands on one at a discount! Check out our full GPS Watch Review to see which timepieces we're loving.
We considered Fitbit's model for our Best Buy award. It is tied in price with the Garmin Forerunner 35 and even has features that the Garmin does not. The Surge, for instance, tracks your daily steps and nightly sleep, while the Forerunner does not. However, for the dedicated athletes, we are speaking to most directly, the Forerunner has more sophisticated exercise data management — both track heart rate and have rudimentary smartwatch functions. Both are reasonably good-looking, though we wish the Fitbit looked more like a "normal" watch.
