Sprint and Samsung have just announced a new variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 for all you sporty types out there. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is a half-rugged reimagination of Samsung’s 2014 flagship.

It can be described as a hybrid, of sorts, between the original Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. Samsung and Sprint tricked it out with more grippy coating material and hardware buttons for back and recent apps.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport will be the first to feature Sprint’s Fit Live suite of fitness apps and offers powered by the likes of Spotify and Under Armor. Here’s what’s being served up on that front:

  • 12 months of access to MapMyFitness MVP which features audio coaching, training plans and live tracking.
  • Six months of premium Spotify access for customers on Framily plans or three months for other customers.
  • Live the Healthy Lifestyle by receiving updated smart, contextual health and fitness content.
  • Customize the look and feel of fitness tracking, education, music and healthy living content displayed on the wallpaper or full screen experience.

Of course, all of that is joined by the wealth of fitness apps Samsung has built into their latest Samsung Galaxy S5 firmware. It’s the same device otherwise, though, with a 2.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 5.1-inch 1080p display, 16 megapixel ISOCELL camera, heart rate monitor and more. It’s also slapped with an IP67 certification for water-resistant and dust-proof build so you won’t have to worry about getting a bit wet or dirty while you have this thing on you.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport will be available July 25th for $0 down and 24 monthly installments of $27.09 through Sprint Easy Pay, and you can get it in either Electric Blue or Cherry Red. You’ll get $50 off a Samsung Gear Fit when you buy one, as well as 50% off many headphones for the sake of listening to tunes while you get your workout on.

Don’t want a Galaxy S5 Sport but want access to the premium fitness apps? Sprint says the Fit Live suite will be preloaded on many of their new smartphones in 2014.

    So an Active is basically like a normal phone but with a case built on, instead of just buying a case.

      Wonder which costs more?

        Since the “S5 Sport” is listed at $27.09/mo on the easy pay plan, it will cost the same as the standard S5.

    Samsung is just down the drain now. Forget quality. It’s an over saturated phone or device making company that knows specs, but not in a quality format. I’ve fallen out with them.

      What is the galaxy s5 missing in terms of quality? I’ve had this phone since last Wednesday and I like it for the most part, besides a couple things I don’t like.

      Down the drain? There are the most succesfull android oem. What are u talking about?

  • KOLIO

    I’d definitely take this over the standard S5.
    With all else being equal, this looks nicer (anything over that awful Band-Aid ® look) & the physical buttons are welcome.
