2015 Running Gear Guide: Wearable Tech

Fitbit Surge

$250, fitbit.com

Highlight: Multifunctional yet intuitive.
This is an activity tracker that’s been souped up specifically for runners. Steps, calories and total daily distance—the Surge records it all, and boasts impressively responsive GPS to track speed and distance during a run. Optical heart rate ups its usefulness during workouts. The fully functional touch screen makes the data easier to read than any other activity tracker and FitBit nailed the design and usability. Testers preferred it to the Mio, which offers similar features. It’s a device with the style and functionality that Apple lovers would be proud to have.
