Samsung has also launched the Gear Fit2 fitness tracker, priced at $179 (Rs 12,000 approximately), which will goes on sale in select markets on June 8. As the name conveys, it is the successor to the Gear Fit launched in 2014. The Gear Fit2 is not only bigger, but boasts an updated design as well. It comes in two sizes.
The Gear Fit2 boast a 1.5-inch Curved Super AMOLED display with 216×432 pixels resolution, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM. Also on offer is 4GB built-in storage. The 200mAh battery is expected to be good enough to last up to three to four days.
The Tizen-based wearable can track your fitness-related activities, sleep and heart-rate as well, and a built-in GPS means it doesn’t need to be connect to a smartphone always. It is also IP68 certified, which makes it resistant to water and dust.
The most annoying point about Gear Fit2 is that it only works with smartphones running on Android KitKat 4.4 and above, and featuring at least 1.5GB of RAM. It competes with Fitbit, Runtastic and even the ultra-affordable Xiaomi Mi Band 2.
