The Gear Fit 2 is Samsung's best wearable yet

 

With the Gear Fit 2, Samsung has succeeded in making a capable and stylish fitness tracker. But it also doesn't do anything significantly better or differently than the competition.

Stylish and comfortable design ; Accurate activity tracking ; Built-in GPS and step tracking ; Automatic workout logging

Android-only at the moment ; Samsung's health apps aren't as robust as others

With the Gear Fit 2, Samsung has succeeded in making a capable and stylish fitness tracker. But it also doesn't do anything significantly better or differently than the competition. It feels like a fitness tracker meant for people who really want...

Samsung Gear Fit 2 review: Samsung gets fitness tracking right

 

I have to give Samsung credit: it went from making a me-too wearable to making something that feels like a serious commitment, something that its intended audience would actually want to use. I'm...

Comfortable band ; Tracks everything except swimming ; Built-in GPS

Band still isn’t very attractive ; Display not visible in sunlight ; Android only

Samsung Gear Fit2

 

With some solid improvements over its predecessor, the Samsung Gear Fit2 is a powerful fitness tracker and a fairly functional smartwatch.

Sharp, colorful display. Comfortable. Doesn't require a Samsung phone. Integrated GPS and heart rate monitor. Standalone music player with Bluetooth streaming capability.

No iOS support. Few additional apps or watch faces available at launch. Narrow screen results in cramped, awkward layouts. Heart rate monitoring isn't continuous.

Conclusions The Gear Fit2 shows just how far Samsung has come in the field of fitness trackers. It's a major improvement over the original Gear Fit, adding support for non-Samsung Android devices, standalone functionality, and more sensors than you'll...

Samsung Gear Fit2 review: Works best with Galaxy smartphones

 

Our Samsung Gear Fit2 review takes a look at a GPS sports/fitness band with plenty of features — and surprisingly doesn't break the bank.

Nice sized bright, crisp screen. Comfortable. Decent battery life. Built in GPS and music storage.

Lack of compatibility with non-Galaxy devices. GPS issues in some rural areas.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 fitness band Review

 

Whether because it's part of its corporate DNA, or simply the result of lessons learned, Samsung has consistently done its best to hedge its bets. When smartwatches first became a thing, the company was quick to market with the Galaxy Gear. And when VR...

Slick design ; Comfortable and lightweight ; Sharp, bright display ; Well-done interface ; Full notifications support

Side buttons are a bit of a letdown ; Limited design customization options ; There are brand-name trackers that do the same and cost less

Samsung Gear Fit 2 [Review]

 

Samsung launched the Gear Fit 2 back in the Summer of 2016 as the successor to their original smartband that was called the Gear Fit. Around the late Fall (early Winter) Samsung provided us with a unit and I pretty much put it through its paces. Also,...

Samsung Gear Fit 2 review: more smartwatch than fitness tracker

 

Andy takes a look at the Samsung Gear Fit 2 -- a smartwatch-cum-fitness tracker that seems to neatly bridge the gap between these two market segments.

It’s slim, sleek and hardy with a waterproof body ; That screen is utterly, utterly gorgeous ; Its smartwatch skills can rival Android Wear

Fitness tracking feels more like fitness guessing ; The Tizen store remains fairly empty ; Although improved, Samsung’s smartphone apps are still problematic

: The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is more evolution than revolution. Unlike other fitness trackers, it adds valuable smartwatch features to a slim and simple design but that seems to come at the price of inaccurate, and oddly vague fitness readings. : 7/10

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Review: Fitness Tracker with a Bit of Smartwatch

 

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is an activity tracker with smartwatch features. Does it achieve the proper balance of utility, capability, and battery life? There are many similar devices that don't.

Comfortable for most ; Great display ; Feature rich

Too bulky for small wrists ; Alerts tough to feel ; Only compatible with Android smartphones (as of this writing)

There’s no perfect fitness tracker. The good ones achieve a balance, working around the inherent flaws that plague the product class: namely battery compromises, awkward UIs, and managing Bluetooth connections.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 review: Surprisingly feature-rich at $250

 

Samsung's newest wearable, the Gear Fit 2, has snagged attention from those in the market for a fitness tracking smartwatch with its 4GB of storage, onboard GPS and reasonable $250 CAD price point.

Crystal clear and responsive display ; Capability for substantial music storage ; Comfortable and unobtrusive ; Reasonable price point

Sensors are somewhat flawed ; Watch face design is poor ; Not water resistant enough to shower with ; Not many third-party apps available

Samsung Gear Fit 2

 

Samsung's new fitness wearable with smart features has a faster CPU and a wider display than the 2014 model, as well as a more supple band. The $179 Gear 2 is available in 3 colors and 2 sizes and it has a heart rate monitor, GPS, step counter, stair...

Sleek looking, very comfy, lovely curved AMOLED display, decent battery life

App selection is small right now. As with all optical heart rate monitors, it gets confused by certain activities

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 pleasantly surprised me: it's a good combination of smartwatch notification features and fitness tracker for the beginner to moderate exercise fanatic. The band's interface is intuitive and the Gear and S Health apps are easy to...
