Wearables are now coming on stream quicker than ever and fitbit are no stranger to the scene here,but is wearable tech for many? For some no and some yes depending on your needs i guess but even for me they still do not interest me that much been honest but i do have some lying around for occasional use.

The Fitbit charge is suggesting to be the Fitbit force reinvented with some improvements.

 

Calculating,steps,distance travel,floors climbed and calories burned,sleep detection and caller ID its water resistant with an OLED display and said to last 7 days on one charge,this will of course need to be feild tested to have stance on the claim here.You can buy it for $130

The Fibit HR contains a heart sensor which they call Pure Pulse,so this will meausre data from when you press start and its expected to have a 5 day battery life this is expected to sell at around $150 and will go on sale next year,time is flying so it wont be long before you notice it..

The Fitbit Surge is more like a smartwatch but is it to late for it? It has 8 sensors,backlit LCD,watrproof,touchscreen,compass,ambient light sensor,GPS and tri axis accelerometer,this has the basic smartwatch funtions such as calls and notifications once the phone is in range,7 days is the battery life suggested,this will also go on sale next year with a price tag of around $250 which is hefty..

Head over to Fitbit for more.
