Fitbit Surge

Why you need it:

It’s not just the new shades of blue and tangerine that have got our hearts racing, this is a high tech tool that combines multiple functions in one great looking combo. Think of it as your running wingman that will help you achieve new goals while making sure you do it safely. The swiping function allows you to do easily find what you need without slowing down to punch buttons.

What it does:

The wrist-worn fitness tracker has a built-in GPS running function with constant heart rate tracking. It also gives you call alerts and can display text so you can keep track of your work while squeezing in a quick workout. Calorie counting and distance tracking also help you keep track of your progress. Plus you don’t need your phone with you for the GPS tracking to work, which means you get to travel light. If you’re looking for other sports to track there’s a plentiful selection on tap, from ‘hiking’, ‘weights’, ‘elliptical’, through to ‘spinning’ and ‘yoga’.
