Fitbit has unveiled its new range of trackers. Find out what each one does and which one is right for you.

Finally, the Fitbit Surge costs $299.95 and is the cream of Fitbit's new crop of trackers. It's everything that the Charge HR is, so it can do all your step, distance, elevation, sleep, and heart tracking, but it also incorporates a GPS and a whole host of other features.

The GPS allows you to show route history, and other stats specific to training runs. Meanwhile, it also has a larger screen that is touch enabled, there is a digital compass, and it's more of a smartwatch than the other devices. It can be used not only for caller ID, but also for text alerts, and also music control.

Put simply, this is the Fitbit to go for if you are a competitor and want a fitness smartwatch with all the trimmings. The battery life is stated as being seven days.

All of these wristband trackers are available in the sizes of small, large and extra large, though extra large is only be available from Fitbit.com.
