Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 Review: Simple, honest, and good value

 

The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 costs just $60, and although it's not for the serious fitness fanatic, it's very tempting for the rest of us.

Comfortable and lightweight ; Simple to use ; Comprehensive list of activities to track ; Good notification support

Battery life claims are overblown ; Strap clasp is annoying ; Some tracking inaccuracies

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

Gear Fit2 Review: Samsung’s best wearable yet

 

When people think of a fitness tracker, most of them would immediately think of Fitbit and their lineup of devices. But most people forget that Samsung also has their own fitness tracker and it's a damn good one at that. After using the Samsung Gear...

+ Great look and feel ; + Tizen is a better OS for wearables ; + Bright and crisp display ; + Lots of activity tracking

– Only works with Android phones ; – Limited number of high-quality apps and watch faces ; – High price compared to Fitbit and other fitness trackers

Overall, Samsung did a great job with the Gear Fit2. It has all the feature that one would want with a fitness tracker and more. But all this comes at a cost, the Gear Fit2 is $249 in Canada and that’s a high price to pay when you consider that a...
