After surviving February's rash-gate incident, Fitbit is making a comeback with not one, not two, but three new trackers. The Charge ($129), which most closely resembles the Force, tracks basic health metrics (i.e., steps, distance, sleep, and floors), and can alert you to incoming phone calls, The Verge reports. The Charge HR ($149), is designed to work as a wrist-based heart rate monitor, in addition to measuring the standard Fitbit vitals. Finally, the Surge ($249) will offer all of Charge HR perks, plus GPS tracking for runners who like data. You can buy the Charge right now on FitBit's website, but you'll have to wait until 2015 for the Charge HR and the Surge.
