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's Gear Fit 2 nails design, falls short on functionality (review)


The Gear Fit 2 has a beautiful curved-screen design and a long list of features, however it didn't wow us with real world performance.

The Gear Fit 2 has a slim design with a beautiful curved AMOLED display that can show smartphone notifications and weekly charts. It also has GPS, heart-rate monitoring, onboard music storage for up to 1,000 songs, all-day fitness and sleep tracking,...

Short battery life. The accuracy of the heart-rate sensor fluctuates during workouts. You can't wear in the shower or while swimming. No iPhone support. Samsung's S Health app can be confusing.

The Gear Fit 2 is a great-looking feature-packed fitness band, but its design isn't always perfect for hardcore workout warriors.

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.

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.

Gear Fit 2 review – can Samsung get fitness tracking right?


The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is the second iteration of their fitness tracker - is it enough to tackle the many trackers that have come out since their first try?

Easy to (ha) ; Screen is well sized and easy to use ; 4GB onboard storage for local music files ; Can play music to Bluetooth headsets ; Plenty of tools to track more than just workouts ; Automatic tracking of activity and sleep

Battery life largely varies depending on usage ; Lack of apps in Tizen ecosystem ; Heart rate tracking inaccurate during more intense workouts ; Heart rate monitoring off for all but cardio activities ; Replying to notifications is severely limited ;...

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is a proper evolution of Samsung’s fitness tracker - and, in conjunction, their S Health tracking system. However, it doesn’t do enough to replace more focused trackers that fitness enthusiasts may already wear.
