How do I maximize my tracker's battery life?
- If you aren’t tracking runs or exercises that use GPS, your fully charged Fitbit Surge™ should last up 7 days as a fitness watch with continuous heart rate monitoring and activity tracking before needing a charge. Your fully charged Surge can track up to 10 hours of activities that use GPS.
To maximize battery life:
- Choose runs or exercises that do not use GPS.
- Delete or disable one or more alarms. Each active alarm reduces battery life by a small percentage.
- Keeping the Heart Rate setting on On will reduce battery life. Change the setting to Auto or, for maximum battery life when you don't need a heart rate reading, change the setting to Off.
- Using Quick View may reduce battery life. To turn Quick View off, go to Settings > Devices on your fitbit.com dashboard.
- Disable notifications by setting Notifications to Off.
- Disable music control by setting Bluetooth (Classic) to Off.
- Shut down your Surge when you aren't using it. Press any button to turn your Surge back on.

Second, for some background, I bought my first FitBit in summer 2014. It was a Flex and between purchasing and upgrading to a Charge HR in July 2015, I used at least 50 bands. They would start to break, on average, after about a month of normal everyday wear. Didn't matter if they were small or large, FitBit official or cheap knockoffs.
Third, and most relevant to this review, I bought a Charge HR in July 2015 and I've had four replacements for it. The bands peel just like the Flex did, except of course you can just pop the Flex itself out of its band and carry it in your pocket or a bracelet. With the Charge HR, it's all attached to the band. Which means that when it breaks, you either have to glue it back together, buy a new one or ask FitBit to replace it. I'd say just don't bother. Either go with another brand, that hopefully doesn't have this issue, or go with a cheaper FitBit that doesn't require the band to function.
Doesn't matter which band it is in my photos, they ALL break exactly the same way.
On the plus side, I LOVE the Fitbit concept, got totally addicted to tracking and definitely became a lot more active. So much so that when my third one went wrong, I couldn't conceive of sending it back until I had some kind of replacement in place.
The first and third send backs were due to the strap falling apart and the main unit starting to separate from the strap. This happened roughly 4 to 5 months into wearing. In between, I had to send one back because it would only hold charge for 18 hours at a time - and a tracker can't track if it's permanently on charge.
The charging cable for this model is terrible - hard to get into position and even harder to keep it there. Seriously needs redesigning.
I briefly upgraded to the Alta but couldn't sync it to my phone or kindle and eventually chucked in my lot with Fitbit and bought a Jawbone UP2
I started wearing it again in April this year and although I could get my steps for the day it no longer seemed to be synching to my ipad so that I could see my steps for previous days on the dashboard. In the last month the band has cracked at the screws and yesterday it severed at the crack so now unwearable.
Leaving aside the dodgy build quality, as far as the unit is concerned it's pretty inaccurate with the steps it thinks I'm doing (all three have been), and it overestimates by a fair bit. It does seem to do it by a consistent factor though, so if all you're looking to do is to walk further each day then ignore the fact it calls what it measures "steps" and just think of it as units of movement. If however you need to accurately know how many steps you're taking and how far you're walking, this won't do it.
So given the above why have I given it three stars and not one? Quite simply I like the measurement of my sleep, I like the silent alarms, and I quite like the unit of movement concept.
