Now a day’s wrist watches are being slowly substituted with wristbands and fitness trackers which are stylish in looks, more efficient than the traditional watches. The fitness trackers, more importantly, help users in maintaining fitness by tracking daily activities.
Leading Electronic Company Samsung once again trying its luck with its new advanced Gear Fit 2. It has been two years since Samsung made its debut into smart bands with the Gear Fit, which didn’t shine at the market as expected.
Samsung’s new improved fitness tracker is setting a tough competition to other leading bands, mainly Apple’s Fitbit.
The all new Gear Fit 2 would be a good option for those who are looking for motivation to stay Fit & Healthy. The built-in GPS tracks your location and the sensors automatically senses whatever activity users are performing whether it is walking, running or working out at the gym.
It would start monitoring by counting the number of steps, distance travelled, calories burned and sleep quality and more. The device also records your exercise and gives the option for selecting fitness sports like yoga, doing squats, rowing, etc. It also alerts users to notifications, calls, texts and more by vibrating.
The Smart device comes up with a 1.5-inch touch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 216×432. The 322 ppi makes reading easy even in sunlight and shade. It runs on the open and flexible Tizen Operating system.
The power packed combination of 4GB Internal Memory, and RAM 512MB enables users with real storage space and efficient multitasking ability. The fitness tracker is equipped with a 1GHz Exynos 3250 Dual Core Processor.
Different types of sensors like Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Heart Rate, GPS, and Barometer are included for multipurpose activities. It can also act as the standalone music player thanks to the built in music player which can play formats like MP3, M4A, AAC, OGG.
Aluminium, polycarbonate and fibreglass were the materials used for making the device and the screen is made from Gorilla Glass 3. The outer straps of the wearable are formed of a typical Elastomer material which makes it skin friendly. It is Dust and Water Resistant and has an IP68 Certification which makes it capable of working in any condition, no matter how sweaty your workout gets or how rainy it is. It is equipped with a 200mAh Lithium-ion battery which would give battery back up to 3-4 days.
Since the earlier version of Gear wasn’t comfortable Samsung, this time, has availed users with different sizes of Gear Fit 2, which would be suiting anyone’s wrist. It supports all the devices running on Android version 4.4 and above.
Sad news for IOS users because they can’t connect this wristband to their device, but can merely use it by wearing. The less chunky Fitness Tracker cum smartwatch is available in black, pink and blue colours. The Pre-booking for the device starts from June 3, and it is priced at $180, and it takes a week for shipping.
