Review: Having previously reviewed FitBit’s Surge, the Fitbit Charge HR offers something slightly different with its slim build. While the Surge remains a firm favourite, the more expensive model isn’t to everyone’s taste given the size of the fitness tracker’s face. The Charge is lighter and less cumbersome when changing in and out of gym wear. The battery life is excellent. It still fulfills most jobs that made the Surge such an excellent bit of gear. However, you are unable to monitor specific workouts which was an insightful feature on the Charge. There is also no timer which also proved disappointing, although the Charge does have a stopwatch. Overall, the Charge is perfect for anyone looking to take their fitness more seriously but for gym and fitness freaks, the Surge is a more suitable choice.
