Samsung Gear Fit 2 Specs


At an event in the Meat-Packing district of New York, Samsung took the wraps off two of its latest wearable devices; the Gear Fit 2 and Gear IconX Bluetooth headphones. The Gear Fit 2 is the latest wearable to hit the streets and is turning heads in the process.

The Gear Fit 2 has seen quite a few leaks over the past few weeks, but yesterday was the big announcement and Samsung definitely made a splash. With the Gear Fit 2 being announced over two years ago, Samsung has had plenty of time to tweak and update its fitness tracker to compete in today’s market.


Samsung Gear Fit 2 Specs:

  • Display: 1.5″ Curved Super AMOLED
  • Operating System: Tizen
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Internal Storage: 4GB
  • Battery: 200mAh
  • Sensors: GPS, Barometer, Heart Rate Monitor, Accelerometer, Gyro
  • Compatibility: Android 4.4 Kit Kat and above; 1.5GB of RAM
  • IP68 Dust & Water Resistant

When looking at these devices in a head to head format, it’s pretty easy to see how many improvements Samsung made before making the Gear Fit 2 announcement. Sure, there’s a couple of compromises in terms of the display size and battery, but it’s not enough to warrant turning away from the Gear Fit 2.

Gear Fit vs Gear Fit 2

The inclusion of 4GB of storage allows for users to store music on the device itself so that you can leave your phone at home. Plus, with the S Health application, everything will sync up rather nicely once your device and the Gear Fit 2 are within proximity of one another.

Additionally, this marks the first Samsung fitness tracker that works with more than just a Samsung smartphone. If your device is running at least Android 4.4 KiKat and has at least 1.5GB of RAM on board, then the Gear Fit 2 will work flawlessly.

To see Samsung expanding its reach to more than just those who own Samsung smartphones is pretty awesome. It will be interesting to see how it pays off in the long run, and if Samsung can really compete against the likes of Fitbit and Garmin with the Gear Fit 2.

The Gear Fit 2 goes up for pre-order starting on June 3rd, with the device becoming available on June 10th for $179. This puts the device right in the heat of the fitness tracking race. By no means is the Gear Fit 2 coasting to the finish line with the likes of Xiaomi’s $22 Mi Band 2 in the way, but it’s definitely worth a look for one of the top fitness trackers on the market.
