Samsung Gear Fit review: Aesthetics take precedence over keeping you fit

 

The wearables space is the new proving ground for tech companies as sky's the limit here in terms of innovation. Smartwatches seem to be the easiest category to innovate in as it's a product that slips right in to our everyday life. Sony and Samsung...

As a fitness band, the Samsung Gear Fit is definitely the most stylish out there but is also quite expensive and most of the functions seem half-baked. To top it off, you’re still tied down to the Galaxy family of devices if you wish to buy this....

Smartwatches are struggling to take off. The Pebble has a niche following but everything else just isn't selling, or capturing anyone's imagination. Fitness bands and trackers, on the other hand, are doing well indeed. Enter the Gear Fit. It's...

Gorgeous curved Super AMOLED screen ; Notifications work for all apps ; Silky smooth scrolling ; Easy to use software interface ; Cool heart-rate monitor

Long screen is awkward to use ; Plastic strap is cheap ; Charging dongle is awkward ; Pedometer is inaccurate ; Fitness features are half-baked

The Gear Fit is beautiful and comfortable to wear, but it’s an average smartwatch and poor fitness tracker.

I'm in the final stretch. My legs are aching; I'm drenched in sweat. The finish line is near, I can feel it. My wrist buzzes. An email: Amazon finally shipped my order of Rice Krispies Treats cereal. I keep running. My wrist buzzes again. A calendar...

Great display ; Handsome design ; Comfortable strap

Inaccurate step counting and heart rate readings ; Awkward screen dimensions ; Limited smartwatch functions

Dreaming of the perfect wearable

Somewhere in my first few days of using the Gear Fit, I stared at the band on my wrist. Curved display, eye-popping colors. A notification was on my wrist: someone liked my last tweet. My sister posted new photos on Facebook. I pressed the heart rate...

The Gear Fit has a forward-looking design, many more extras than the average fitness band, and the ability to measure heart rate. Its curved AMOLED display looks fantastic, too.

The long display means text reads awkwardly on your wrist. The Fit only works with certain Samsung phones. Can’t load apps, so you’re stuck with the features included. And the price is high, so much so that you might consider a cheaper alternative or...

The Samsung Gear Fit is a great-looking wearable, but doesn't successfully reconcile its dual roles as activity tracker and smartwatch.

The Samsung Gear Fit is a cross-over device between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker with Star Trek looks and killer style…

Killer style ; Extremely light, you can almost forget you are wearing it ; Gorgeous curved Super AMOLED display ; Rich notification system ; Water and dust-resistant, you can even shower with it

Fitness tracking is not on par with others: exercise tracking and pedometer are less accurate ; Compatibility limited to Samsung devices only ; Pricey ; Heart-sensor is dishearteningly slow ; Sleep tracking does not yield much usable data

The Samsung Gear Fit price is set at the costly $199 (€199 in Europe), nearly double the price of entry-level fitness trackers, and higher than even the pricey $130 Fitbit Force and $150 Nike FuelBand+. It’s also costlier than the $150 Pebble...

Samsung's foray into the world of fitness bands brings some smartwatch capabilities as well. How does it fare? Here's our review of the Samsung Gear Fit!

And so there you have it, the Samsung Gear Fit. While it has its flaws, it does help when you consider that this is probably just the beginning. With all that Samsung missed in this first attempt at providing a fitness orientated experience, users will...

Review: Samsung Gear Fit

 

Most of the fitness-based wearables we've seen so far have been very different from smartwatches. And one of the few attempts to blend the two, the Fitbit Force, ended up getting recalled (damn those skin rashes). Enter Samsung, which never met a...

Samsung Gear Fit is a fitness tracker device with a full color touch screen. Find out how the Gear Fit tracks your fitness in the full review.

The Gear Fit is one of few fitness devices with a touch-screen system where you can view and interact with your fitness data

A major downside with the Gear Fit is its Samsung-only compatibility. You must have a Galaxy phone in order to use the tracker

If you have a Galaxy phone, the Samsung Gear Fit is a sleek, easy-to-use tracker with lots of helpful feedback and goal tracking for your fitness regimen.

Samsung Gear Fit review

 

Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone earlier this year and alongside it came a trio of smartwatches: the Samsung Gear Fit, as its name suggests, being the more sporty device than either the Gear 2 or more affordable Gear 2 Neo.

Great design, beautiful display in right conditions, simple and fluid interface, built-in heart-rate monitor, interchangeable straps, good price, some smartwatch functions

Some Samsung device compatibility only, no auto brightness, battery life not amazing, fitness features limited, lack of apps, restricted to S Health (Samsung' s app) only, accuracy questionable at times, no altimeter

The band with the bendy face

Beautiful AMOLED screen ; Good fitness/smartwatch balance

Limited fitness features ; Accuracy problems ; Extra charging component

The Samsung Gear Fit is perhaps the best example of one of wearable tech's biggest challenges right now: reconciling the fitness band and the smartwatch. It feels like Samsung is very close here but the software still has some way to go, especially as...
