I have the Garmin Vivosmart. It's different and not as classy as the Surge but performs well and so far the tech support has been pretty good. I bought it from REI which has a one year unquestioned 100% return policy if I don't like it. So far so good. I added the heart rate monitor. It will announce calls, text and other messages, play music from my smart phone, track steps, sleep monitor, phone locator and a few other options.
