A lot of people complained that the original Fitbit had a really small screen. The manufacturers have listened and now we have the Surge. This new and improved activity tracker comes with a large screen and a well-built wrist band. Since it has a large screen all the relevant information can be displayed directly without having to check the data on a smartphone.
In terms of features almost all the devices in the list offer the same fitness information. The main difference between them is how the information is displayed. Some have their own screen while others just store the information and display it on a smartphone. In the end it is a matter of preference and all of them are worth looking at.
