Fitbit launched a few excellent new products in early 2015 and with its announcement that Jonah Becker is the new VP of industrial design things can only get better.

Jonah just left HTC last week after working for the metal smartphone maker for a couple of years, after One & Co. was acquired by HTC. He was most recently the associate VP of industrial design so led the design efforts for devices such as the HTC One M8 and M9.

Previously with One & Co. Jonah led projects related to athletics, including design roles for Adidas, Burton Snowboards, K2 Sports, Nike, and The North Face. With his athletic and tech background, I look forward to seeing more great trackers from Fitbit.

While I was pleased with the Fitbit Surge at first, giving it an 8 out of 10 rating, the recent updates for bike tracking and GPS data export have earned it a spot on my left wrist. If I reviewed the Fitbit Surge today my rating would be 9 or higher.
