The Gear 2 may have come across as the main star of Samsung's new wearable device strategy, but the Gear Fit got just as much attention at the Samsung Unpacked product launch here in Barcelona.The company swapped the integrated storage of the Gear 2 for a much smaller form factor and a curved 1.4-inch super-AMOLED display.
The wrist band can track how far you walk in a day or a week, can compare running/marching performance to your previous records, can measure heart rate, etc.
It can basically do anything a normal fitness tracker can do, but Samsung wanted to do one better, so it also gave Gear Fit the ability to tell you to slow down or speed up, or otherwise optimize a workout routine.
Furthermore, the Fit can act as an extension of your phone, receiving instant notifications (messages, phone calls), or control the alarm and even reject calls, even select pre-set quick message replies.
20 Galaxy devices are supported, with full functionality accessible via the S Health app.
Finally, the strap can be swapped, since it doesn't have any wiring. Everything is built into the central piece.
