 I have been thinking about getting this once I heard about it....and now its out.  My heart rate monitor is a pain in the butt and it hasn't been working that well.  I know that when I use one, I work out better. 

Is anyone else considering upgrading?

 May I ask why you got the surge?  I'm thinking that if I wanted to get that one, i might as well get the galaxy watch. KWIM?

Because I also run and I wanted the GPS feature that the Surge has. I dont need to be able to take calls from my watch. I like the notification option on the Surge though, its a nice bonus. I love fitbit products so I replaced my running watch with this one. I love all it does.

The galaxy watch is not a fitness watch. The fitness aspect comes from an app you have to use. I feel like using a fitbit device would be more accurate because that is waht they are made for. Does the Galaxy watch have a heart rate monitor?

 That GPS is a good feature.  I agree that I really don't want to take calls or have that access on my watch.  I love fitbit and it does help me.  I just wish it looked a little nicer if it's going to be that big.

Its really not that big. I have small wrists and have gotten use to it quick. I have also had a few compliments on it and they didn't realize it was a fitbit. LOL. Yes, its bigger than the flex but its grown on me. LOL

 There are a couple that do.  There is one that is $299....but I don't want to pay that much for something like that.

Oh, I didnt see those I guess. 

I guess I just really like fitbit so stuck with them. I haven't been disappointed yet!
