I have had my surge since mid-dec and i am happy to say it is a huge step up from the flex. I am so excited that i don’t have a collection of stuff on my wrist anymore (and that is what it felt like to have a watch and another device on my wrist). So far, things have been overall greatthe sizeit is a bit more bulky than my beloved watch, so it does catch on long sleeves. It is a little annoying to try and view it when i am wearing a jacket, but it is a small annoyance that i can live with. I don’t find it bothersome to wear while i am sitting at my computer (which i did have a problem with when i wore my watch). I bought a size small, which fits well, but i probably could have gotten away with a large (despite the fact that i have tiny wrists and it is a fraction of an inch smaller than the recommended size for large). Styleit is by no-means femenine, but as far as fitness watches go, it is generally unisex. I also don’t have the gap that i usually have with fitness devices where my wrist curves but my watch face doesn’t, so i end up with gaps under the top and bottom of the face, so that is a definite plus (there is a small gap, but not annoyingly bad). Functionas a watch, it is one of the best executions of a watch on a fitness device that i have seen. I would love to see the screen have the option to default back to the time screen.

I was provided fitbit surge from rei at no cost to test 6 months ago. Here are my thoughts after 6 months of use:i have been using it every day along with the fitbit app on my iphone 6 and the fitbit dashboard on my macbook pro. Here are my observations:░░░░░pro’s░░░░░❖ the app on my iphone allows me to easily enter the type of food i am eating and the amount of calories, and calories from fat. The app is synched up with a huge database and allows you to scan a barcode on a package and it automatically shows you the pertinent nutritional information. I have used this feature on about 40 items so far, and about 70-80% of these items were in the database. The others i added manually, but then you can pull the up easily the next time you eat that food item. You can also type in the name of a restaurant and it will pull up items on their menu. It has worked on 100% of the these with 95% of the items listed. ❖ setting my weight loss and gain goal is wonderful.It asks your current weight, your target weight and how long you want to take to get there (it shows you the date you should achieve your target weight in 3-4 categories ranging from easy to difficult).
