Samsung already revealed the latest Gear smart watches over the weekend, and the Galaxy S5 was just put out into the world for all to see, but the company seems to have forgotten one wrist-dwelling device.
It’s the Samsung Gear Fit, a 1.85-inch curved AMOLED device with interchangeable bands. Its claim to fame will be all the activity and fitness-centric sensors onboard, including a sleep tracker, a heart rate monitor and a built-in pedometer, all of which can be synced up to your S Health app on the latest Galaxy devices.
Beyond that, you’ll also get the usual notifications for phone, email and text messages, S Planner and more, as well as stopwatch and timer functions. Samsung’s 210mAh battery inside is said to be able to deliver 3-4 days of battery life, which is a better rate than the 2-3 days that the Gear 2’s 300mAh kit provides.
The Gear Fit is clearly not meant to offer up the same experience as the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, but it could end up being a nice little life companion for anyone who wants to be more conscious about their health (and it does look a lot more sleek and stylish than any other activity tracker we’ve seen on the market). Have a look at it in some of the images above, and expect it to be on sale alongside the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Samsung Galaxy S5 at some point this Spring.
