Fitbit Surge To Be Like A Smartwatch

Fitbit Surge To Be Like A Smartwatch

Fitbit seems to be having trouble keeping a lid on its upcoming line of wearables. The company makes some of the most popular fitness trackers on the market, and we recently learned that two new activity-tracking wristbands called the Charge and Charge HR are on on the way.

According to leaked promotional material, the Fitbit Surge will cost $250 and will come with built-in GPS and PurePulse heart rate monitoring. Apart from that, the device will work like any other fitness device by tracking your progress and activity throughout the day.

The smartwatch part of the equation enters with providing call and text notifications as well as music control from your wrist. If this leak is true (and it seems pretty solid), this would definitely be one of the most functional fitness bands on the market but a relatively simple smartwatch without the Android Wear OS behind it.

The Fitbit Surge allegedly joins Charge and Charge HR (with rumored pricing around $180 and $220 respectively) as a family of devices. However, there is still no word on when we’ll see the devices IRL
