It looks like the first round of Fitbit Surge trackers are being offered up to a select few who signed up to receive notifications about the device's availability. We've gotten a tip from a reader who was able to order one of the wearables with a special promo code during an exclusive "limited release."
As a refresher, the $250 Fitbit Surge was announced back in October and sports a built-in GPS, a heart-rate monitor, and a touchscreen display that features music controls as well as call and text notifications.
Though this is good news for those who were quick to sign up for notifications on the wearable, it's important to remember that Fitbit is labeling this as a limited release. Back at the device's announcement, the official word was that it would launch in 2015, so don't expect wide availability. Still, it will be interesting to see the devices start to trickle out into the hands of the public.
You can see an example of the image contained in the email below. Let us know in the comments if you've received one as well.
Thanks to David for the tip!
