Samsung joins the wrist-band market with Gear Fit

Samsung Gear Fit

Aside from two new smart watches, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, Samsung has also announced its very first smart wrist-band. Called Gear Fit, it doesn’t run neither Android nor Tizen. Rather, it uses some simplistic real-time OS and low-power processor that allows the Fit to last longer (than Gear smart watches).

Similarly to other comparable products, Sammy’s wrist-band will also track one’s movement, sleep, heart rate and so on. The Korean company made sure it can sing along its own smartphones, and as I’m writing this – we’ve no idea whether other devices will be able to connect to Gear Fit or not. We do know that all the data will be stored on the S Health app, from where users will be able to access and analyze it whenever they fancy.

The Gear Fit comes with a fancy (for a wrist-band) 1.84-inch curved screen with 432×128 pixel resolution. It weighs just 27 grams, and comes with few apps preinstalled like pedometer, heart rate tracker, stopwatch and timer. Users can choose between few strap colors, including orange, grey and black. The Samsung Gear Fit will be available starting from the end of March.
