What’s in this document
We get you started quickly by creating a Fitbit® account and making sure the
tracker can synchronize the data it collects with your Fitbit dashboard. The
dashboard is where you can analyze your data, see historical trends, set goals, log
food and water, keep up with friends, and much more. As soon as you’re done setting
up your tracker, you’re ready to start moving.
Next, we explain how to find and use the features that interest you and adjust your
preferences. To find more information, tips, and troubleshooting, please browse our
comprehensive articles at http://help.fitbit.com. Do us a favor and rate the articles
you read—it’s how we know we’re getting you the right information at the right time!
1
Setting up your Fitbit Surge
To make the most of your Surge, use the free Fitbit app available for iOS®,
Android™, and Windows® 10 devices. If you don’t have a compatible mobile device
you can use a computer instead, but keep in mind that a mobile device is required for
key features such as notifications, music control, and GPS.
Setting up your tracker on your mobile device
The Fitbit app is compatible with more than 200 mobile devices that support iOS,
Android, and Windows 10 operating systems.
To get started:
1.
Make sure the Fitbit app is compatible with your mobile device by checking
http://www.fitbit.com/devices.
2. Find the Fitbit app in one of these locations, depending on your device:
• The Apple® App Store® for iOS devices such as an iPhone® or iPad®.
• The Google Play™ Store for Android devices such as the Samsung®
Galaxy® S5 and Motorola Droid Turbo.
• The Microsoft® Windows Store for Windows 10 mobile devices such as
the Lumia™ phone or Surface™ tablet.
3. Install the app. Note that you’ll need an account with the applicable store
before you can download even a free app such as Fitbit.
4. When the app is installed, open it and tap Join Fitbit to get started. You’ll be
guided through the process of creating a Fitbit account and connecting
(pairing) your Surge to your mobile device. Pairing makes sure the tracker and
mobile device can communicate with one another (sync their data).
Note that the personal information you’re asked during setup is used to
calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which helps determine your
estimated calorie expenditure. This information is private unless you go into
your Privacy settings and opt to share age, height, or weight with Fitbit
friends.
After setup you’re ready to get moving.
Setting up your tracker on your PC (Windows 10)
If you don’t have a mobile device, you can set up and sync your tracker on your
Windows 10 PC using the same Fitbit app available for Windows mobile devices.
To get the app, click the Start button and open the Windows Store (called Store).
Search for “Fitbit app.” Note that if you’ve never downloaded an app from the store
to your computer, you’ll be prompted to create an account.
2
Open the app and follow the instructions to create a Fitbit account and set up your
Surge. To set up and sync you’ll need to use the wireless sync dongle that came in
the box with your Surge.
Setting up your tracker on your PC (Windows 8.1
and below)
If you don’t have a compatible mobile device, you can set up your tracker with a
computer and see your Fitbit stats on fitbit.com. To use this method you’ll first install
a free software application called Fitbit Connect that lets Surge sync its data with
your fitbit.com dashboard.

When prompted, save the file that appears.
Double-click the file (FitbitConnect_Win.exe). The Fitbit Connect installer
opens.
5. Click Continue to move through the installer.
6. When prompted, choose Set up a New Fitbit Device.
7. Follow the onscreen instructions to create a Fitbit account and connect your
tracker. You’ll be prompted to plug in the wireless sync dongle that came in
the box with your Surge.
Note that the personal information you’re asked during setup is used to
calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which helps determine your
estimated calorie expenditure. This information is private unless you go into
your Privacy settings and opt to share age, height, or weight with Fitbit
friends.
Setting up your tracker on your Mac
If you don’t have a compatible mobile device, you can set up your tracker with a
computer and see your Fitbit stats on fitbit.com. To use this setup method you’ll first

opens.
5. Click Continue to move through the installer.
6. When prompted, choose Set up a New Fitbit Device.
3
7. Follow the onscreen instructions to create a Fitbit account and connect your
Surge. You should be able to sync wirelessly with your Mac, but if not, plug in
the wireless sync dongle that came with your tracker.
Note that the personal information you’re asked during setup is used to
calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which helps determine your
estimated calorie expenditure. This information is private unless you go into
your Privacy settings and opt to share with Fitbit friends.
Syncing your tracker data to your Fitbit account
Once you've set up and started using Surge, you'll need to make sure it regularly
transfers (syncs) its data to Fitbit so you can track your progress, see your exercise
history, earn badges, analyze your sleep logs, and more on your Fitbit dashboard. A
daily sync is recommended but not required.
The Fitbit apps use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to sync with your Fitbit
tracker. Each time you open the app it will sync if the tracker is nearby. If you’re
running the Fitbit app on a Windows 10 PC that doesn’t have Bluetooth, you’ll need
to make sure the wireless sync dongle is installed.
Fitbit Connect on a Mac® also uses Bluetooth for syncing (if available), otherwise
you’ll need to make sure your dongle is plugged into the computer. Fitbit Connect
will sync automatically every 15 minutes if:
•
•
The tracker is within 20 feet of your computer.
The computer is powered on, awake, and connected to the Internet.

Getting to know your Fitbit Surge
This section tells you how best to wear, navigate, and recharge your tracker.
Wrist placement
Review these tips to make sure you’re wearing your tracker correctly.
All-day wear and exercise
Your Surge should be worn on your wrist. While it may track stats such as steps and
floors when placed in a pocket or backpack, it is most accurate on the wrist. For allday wear, your Surge should usually rest a finger’s width below your wrist bone and
lay flat (as you would normally wear a watch).
As with all heart-rate tracking technology, whether a chest strap or a wrist-based
sensor, accuracy is affected by personal physiology, location of wear, and type of
movement. In other words, not every person will get a perfectly accurate reading
with every type of exercise. For best heart rate accuracy keep these tips in mind:
1.
Experiment with wearing the tracker higher on your wrist during exercise.
Because blood flow in your arm increases the farther up you go, moving the
tracker up a couple inches can improve the heart rate signal. Also, many
exercises such as spinning cause you to bend your wrist frequently, which is
more likely to interfere with the heart rate signal if the tracker is lower on your
wrist.
5
2. Do not wear your tracker too tight; a tight band restricts blood flow,
potentially affecting the heart rate signal. That being said, the tracker should
also be slightly tighter (snug but not constricting) during exercise than during
all-day wear.
3. With high-intensity interval training or other activities where your wrist is
moving vigorously and non-rhythmically, the movement may prevent the
sensor from finding an accurate heart rate. Similarly, with exercises such as
weight lifting or rowing, your wrist muscles may flex in such a way that the
band tightens and loosens during exercise. Try relaxing your wrist and staying
still briefly (about 10 seconds), after which you should see an accurate heart
rate reading.
Dominant or non-dominant wrist
To improve the accuracy of your Surge, we ask you to specify whether you’re
wearing it on your dominant or non-dominant hand. Your dominant hand is the one
you use for most day-to-day activities such as writing or brushing your teeth. You
can specify this setting in the Account section of the Fitbit app or in the Devices
section of your fitbit.com dashboard.
Navigation
The Surge has a touch screen with a backlight and three buttons: Home, Select, and
Action. Take a moment to memorize these button names and their location or refer
back to this image when reading the tasks in this manual:
Your Surge has two sets of screens: the Clock, where you can see your all-day stats,
and the Menu. To switch between the two sets, press the Home button.

Double-pressing the Home button displays the music playback control.
Note: The functions of the Select and Action buttons vary depending on what you’re
doing. An icon next to the button tells you what it does, such as pausing and
resuming or selecting an option.
7
Battery life and charging
Depending on your usage, your battery life may vary:
•
•
If you aren’t tracking runs or exercises that use GPS, your fully charged Surge
should last up to 7 days as a fitness watch with continuous heart rate tracking
and activity tracking.
Your fully charged Surge can track a maximum of about 10 hours of activities
that use GPS before needing a charge. To ensure that you’re always tracking
your data, we recommend charging your Surge after any activity that uses
GPS.
Determining your current battery level
When looking at the Menu, your tracker’s battery level appears in the top left.
Full
Partially Full
Very Low
Critically Low
Charging
If your battery is critically low, charge your Surge as soon as possible.
You can also check your battery level from the Fitbit app, or by logging into
fitbit.com and clicking the gear icon on the top-right corner of the page. In these
cases, the battery level shown reflects the last time you synced your Surge. To make
sure you are seeing the current battery level, sync your Surge.
8
Charging your tracker
To charge your Surge, plug the charging cable into the USB port on your computer
or a UL-certified USB wall charger and plug the other end into the port on the back
of the Surge. Charging completely takes 1 to 2 hours.
Conserving battery life
If you won’t be using your Surge for a while, you can conserve battery life by
shutting it down. To do so, swipe to the Settings screen and swipe up to find
Shutdown. For other tips on maximizing battery life, see help.fitbit.com.
Care
It’s important to clean and dry your Surge regularly. For instructions and more
information see http://www.fitbit.com/productcare.
9
Using GPS
The Surge includes a GPS receiver to track your route during several activities,
including Free Run, Lap Run, Walk, Bike, and Hike. On your dashboard, GPS data is
shown in a map view along with the stats tracked during the activity.
When you select a run or exercise that uses GPS, Surge begins searching for a GPS
signal. As with any GPS device, a signal is likely to be discovered more quickly if you
are outside in an open area and standing still.
For best results, wait for the signal to be discovered before you start your activity.
If a GPS signal isn’t discovered within a few seconds, a Quick Start option appears for
all GPS exercises except Bike.
If you don’t want to wait for the GPS signal to be discovered, you can press the
Select (Quick Start) button to move to the activity screen and get started. Surge will
continue to search for a GPS signal, but it will take longer to find than if you were
standing still.
If you start moving before the GPS signal is discovered, Surge uses your step count
to estimate how far you went before GPS tracking began. Therefore, the total
distance calculated for the activity may be slightly less accurate than it would be if
you got a GPS fix and then started moving. The Quick Start option does not appear if
you’re tracking a bike ride because GPS is required for calculating your distance.
Wait for a GPS fix before starting your ride.
10
NOTE: A maximum of 35 hours of GPS data can be stored on your Surge. If you try to
track more than 35 hours’ worth of GPS data without syncing, older data will
be deleted to make room for new data. To ensure that all your GPS data is
saved on fitbit.com, sync your Surge regularly.
Using the timer and stopwatch
You can use your Surge both as timer and a stopwatch.
Using the timer
You can use the timer function on your Surge to set a timer of up to 90 minutes.
To use the timer:
1.
Show the Menu on your Surge, then swipe to Timer.
2. Press the Select button or tap the screen to show the timer.
3. Tap the gear icon or press the Action button to set the timer.
4. Select the minutes and seconds of the timer duration, then tap the check mark
icon or press the Select button to set the timer.
5. To begin the timer, tap the play icon or press the Select button.
6. To pause or stop the timer, tap the pause icon or press the Select button
again.
Using the stopwatch
You can use the stopwatch function on your Surge to measure how long it takes you
to complete an activity or exercise.
To use the stopwatch:
1.
Show the Menu on your Surge, then swipe to Timer.
11
2. Press the Select button or tap the screen to show the timer.
3. Swipe left or right to switch to the stopwatch.
4. To begin the stopwatch, tap the play icon or press the Select button.
5. To pause or stop the timer, tap the pause icon or press the Select button
again.
6. To reset the timer, tap the rewind icon or press the Action button.

Automatic Tracking with Fitbit Surge
Your Surge tracks a variety of stats automatically whenever you’re wearing it. Your
tracker’s latest data is uploaded to your Fitbit dashboard whenever you sync.
Viewing all-day stats
On the clock, swipe left or right through the menu items. Tap a menu item to see
these all-day stats:
•
•
•
•
•
Steps taken
Current heart rate
Distance covered
Calories burned
Floors climbed
Other stats captured by your tracker are available on your Fitbit dashboard,
including:
•
•
•
Detailed heart rate history, including time spent in heart rate zones
Active minutes
Hours slept and quality of sleep
Your Surge starts tracking your stats for the next day at midnight based on your time
zone. Though your stats reset to zero at midnight, this does not delete the previous
day’s data; that data will be uploaded to fitbit.com the next time you sync your
tracker.
Using heart-rate zones
Heart-rate zones help you target the training intensity of your choice. Your tracker
shows your current zone next to your heart rate, and on your Fitbit dashboard you
can see your time spent in zones during a particular day or exercise. Three zones
based on American Heart Association recommendations are available by default, or
you can create a custom zone if you have a specific heart rate you’re targeting.
When viewing the Clock, swipe to display your current beats per minute and heart
rate zone.
Default heart rate zones
Default heart-rate zones are calculated using your estimated maximum heart rate.
Fitbit calculates your maximum heart rate with the common formula of 220 minus
your age.
13
To quickly determine what zone you’re in, take a look at the heart icon:
Out of zone
•
•
•
•
Fat burn
Cardio
Peak
When you’re out of zone, which means you’re below 50% of maximum, your
heart rate may be elevated but not enough to be considered exercise.
Fat Burn zone, which means your heart rate is 50% to 69% of maximum, is the
low-to-medium intensity exercise zone and may be a good place to start for
those new to exercise. It’s called the fat burn zone because a higher
percentage of calories are burned from fat, but the total calorie burn rate is
lower.
Cardio zone, which means your heart rate is 70% to 84% of maximum, is the
medium-to-high intensity exercise zone. In this zone you’re pushing yourself
but not straining. For most people this is the exercise zone to target.
Peak zone, which means your heart rate is greater than 85% of maximum, is
the high-intensity exercise zone. The peak zone is for short intense sessions
that improve performance and speed.
Custom heart-rate zones
Instead of using the default heart rate zones you can configure a custom heart rate
zone in the Fitbit app or fitbit.com dashboard. When your heart rate is above or
below your custom zone you’ll see an outline of a heart, and when your heart rate is
in your custom zone you’ll see a solid heart.
For more details about heart rate tracking, including links to relevant American Heart
Association information, see https://help.fitbit.com.
Tracking sleep
Your Surge automatically tracks the time you sleep and your movement during the
night to help you understand your sleep patterns. To track sleep, simply wear your
Surge to bed. To help you achieve a healthy sleep cycle, by default you have a sleep
goal of 8 hours of sleep per night. You can customize your sleep goal in the Fitbit
app or on your fitbit.com dashboard to an amount that better suits the amount of
sleep you need.
To see your sleep log, sync your tracker when you wake up. On your Fitbit
dashboard you can see your sleep log and more detailed information about your
sleep patterns and trends.
14
Tracking a daily activity goal
Your Surge tracks your progress towards a daily goal of your choice.
Choosing a goal
By default your goal is 10,000 steps per day. On the Fitbit app or fitbit.com
dashboard you can choose a different goal, including distance traveled, calories
burned, or floors climbed, and select the corresponding value you prefer. For
example, you may want to keep steps as your goal but change the target from
10,000 to 20,000 steps.
Seeing goal progress
A progress bar keeps you motivated. For example, the solid portion of the line below
shows that you’re more than halfway to a goal of 10,000 steps.
When you reach your goal your Fitbit Surge will vibrate and flash to celebrate.
15
Tracking Exercise with Fitbit Surge
Surge will automatically detect many exercises and record them in your exercise
history using our SmartTrack™ feature. You can also tell your tracker when exercise
starts and stops if you want to see real-time stats and a workout summary right on
your wrist. All workouts appear in your exercise history for deeper analysis and
comparison.
Using SmartTrack
Our SmartTrack feature automatically recognizes and records select exercises to
ensure you get credit for your most active moments of the day. When you sync your
tracker after a SmartTrack-detected exercise, you can find several stats in your
exercise history including duration, calories burned, impact on your day, and more.
By default SmartTrack detects continuous movement at least 15 minutes in length.
You can increase the minimum duration or disable SmartTrack for one or more
exercise types.
For more information about customizing and using SmartTrack, see help.fitbit.com.

23
Receiving Call and Text Notifications
Over 200 compatible mobile devices let you receive incoming phone call and text
notifications on your Surge. To determine whether your device supports this feature,
go to http://www.fitbit.com/devices. When you receive a notification, your Surge
vibrates and caller information is shown in a banner across the top of the screen.
Enabling call and text notifications
To enable call and text notifications on your Surge, you connect (“pair”) your Surge
to the Fitbit app:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
From the Surge menu, swipe to Settings and make sure Notifications is set to
On.
Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile device.
Make sure your Surge is within 20 feet of your mobile device.
Open the Fitbit app on your mobile device and tap the Surge tile at the top of
the mobile dashboard.
Enable Notifications and follow the onscreen instructions.
When your Surge has been successfully paired for notifications, it appears as a
connected device named “Surge” in your list of Bluetooth devices.
Seeing call and text notifications
Surge receives notifications when you are within about 20 feet of your mobile device.
When you receive a call or text, your Surge vibrates and a notification appears at the
top of the screen for 7 seconds. If the caller or sender is in the contacts list on your
mobile device, the name is shown. Otherwise, the phone number of the caller or
sender appears instead. The icon indicates whether you are receiving a call or a text.
24
After 7 seconds, the name or number disappears but an icon in the upper right
corner of the screen indicates that you have received a text or a call.
To view and manage notifications:
•
•
•
If you have more than one notification, swipe left and right to see them all.
Swipe down to scroll through the entire contents of a text. A maximum of 32
characters of a subject and 160 characters of a text message are shown.
Press the Action button or Home button to exit the notification screen.
Surge stores a maximum of 20 notifications. If you receive more than 20
notifications, the oldest notifications are deleted as new ones come in. Each
notification is deleted after 24 hours.
Disabling call and text notifications
If you want to stop receiving notifications either temporarily or permanently, you can
do one of the following:
•
•
In the Fitbit app, disable Notifications.
On your Surge, change the Notifications setting to Off.
If you want to start receiving notifications again, simply change the setting.
25
Controlling Music
With a compatible iOS or Android device you can use Surge to pause and resume
music and skip to the next track. To determine whether your device supports this
feature, go to http://www.fitbit.com/devices. The Surge uses the AVRCP Bluetooth
profile to control music; therefore, the app providing your music must be compatible
with AVRCP. Some streaming music apps do not broadcast track information and
therefore the track title won't appear on your Surge display. However, if an app
supports AVRCP you can still pause or skip a track, just not see its title on your
Surge.
Enabling music control
To control music from your Surge, you use the Bluetooth feature on your phone to
connect (“pair”) your Surge with your mobile device. Pairing your Surge requires that
you perform steps on both your Surge and your mobile device in quick succession.
Have them both close at hand before continuing.
To enable music control:
1.
If you have not already done so, confirm that your device is compatible for
music control at http://www.fitbit.com/devices.
2. On your Surge:
a. Display the Menu, then swipe to Settings.
b. Scroll to Bluetooth Classic.
c. If the setting is Off or On, press the Select button until the setting is
Pair.
3. On your mobile device:
a. Navigate to the Bluetooth Settings screen where paired devices are
listed.
b. Make sure your mobile device is discoverable and is scanning for
devices.
c. When “Surge (Classic)” is shown as an available device, select it.
d. Wait for a message displaying a six-digit number.
4. Perform the following two steps in close succession.
a. When the same six-digit number appears on your Surge, press the
Action button.
b. On your mobile device, select Pair.
After successfully pairing your device, the Bluetooth Classic setting on your Surge
should automatically be reset to On.
26
Controlling music with your Surge
After you have paired your device for music control, you can access the music
control screen at any time.
To control music playback on your Surge:
1. Open a music app on your mobile device and begin playback.
2. Double-press the Home button on your Surge to see information about the
track currently playing. If the app you’re using does not broadcast track
information, it won’t appear on your Surge.
3. Use the Select button to pause, or use the Action button to skip to the next
track.
4. Press the Home button to return to the previous screen.
NOTE: As with other Bluetooth devices, if you disconnect your Surge (Classic) so
you can connect another Bluetooth device, the next time you want to use
it to control music you will have to connect it again in your Bluetooth
devices list.
27

28
Adjusting the backlight
This setting controls the conditions under which your Surge lights up. Available
options are:
•
•
•
Auto (the default) – When you tap the screen, press a button, or turn your
wrist to view the time, Surge uses ambient light to determine whether the
backlight comes on.
On – Whenever you tap the screen or press a button, the backlight comes on.
Off – The backlight does not come on under any circumstances.
To adjust this setting, swipe to the Settings menu and tap the screen. Swipe up until
you find Brightness.
Adjusting the heart-rate tracker
Your Surge uses PurePulse™ technology to track heart rate automatically and
continuously when the heart-rate tracker is on. The Heart Rate Tracking setting has
three options:
•
•
•
Auto (the default) – The heart rate tracker is generally active only when you
are wearing your Fitbit Surge.
Off – The heart rate tracker is never active.
On – The heart rate tracker is always active; you may want to choose this
option if your heart rate isn’t being tracked even though you are wearing your
tracker.
If you remove your Fitbit Surge but it keeps moving, for example if you put it in a
pocket or backpack, it may record an erroneous heart rate reading. You can prevent
this by changing the setting to Off.
To adjust this setting, swipe to the Settings menu and tap the screen. Swipe up until
you find Heart Rate Tracking.
29
Updating your Fitbit Surge
Free feature enhancements and product improvements are occasionally made
available through firmware updates. We recommend keeping your Surge up to date.
You’ll be notified in the Fitbit app when an update is available. After you start the
update, you’ll see a progress bar on your tracker until the process is complete,
followed by a confirmation message.
Note that updating your Surge takes several minutes and may be demanding on the
battery. For this reason we recommend putting your charger in the charging cradle
before updating.
30
Troubleshooting your Fitbit Surge
If your tracker is not working properly, review our troubleshooting information
below. For other problems or more details, visit http://help.fitbit.com.
Heart-rate signal missing
Surge continuously tracks your heart rate while you’re exercising and throughout the
day. However, occasionally the heart rate tracker may have difficulty getting a strong
signal. In those cases, you’ll see this screen:
If you don’t see your heart rate on your Surge, first make sure you’re wearing it
correctly. Experiment with placing the tracker higher on your wrist; because blood
flow in your arm increases the farther up you go, moving the tracker up a couple
inches can be helpful. Also, make sure you're not wearing your tracker too tightly; a
tight band restricts blood flow, potentially affecting the heart rate signal. After a
short wait, you should see your correct heart rate again.
Unexpected behavior
If you experience one of the following problems with your Surge, it may be fixed by
restarting your tracker:
•
•
•
•
•
•
It is not syncing.
It is not responding to movement.
It doesn’t respond even when in a charger.
It has a battery charge but is not lighting up.
It isn’t tracking your steps or other data.
It’s not responding to button presses, taps, or swipes.
Restarting your Surge does not delete any data except text and call notifications.
To restart your Surge:
1.
Press and hold the Home and Select buttons (left and bottom right) for 10
to 15 seconds until you see the screen flash or start to dim.
2. Let go of the buttons.
31
3. After your screen turns completely off, wait 10 seconds and then press the
Home button to turn your Surge back on.
Your Surge should now work normally.
