Samsung unveiled two fitness oriented accessories in the Samsung Gear Fit2 GPS sports band and the Samsung Gear IconX cordless earbuds.

Samsung Gear Fit2

The Samsung Gear Fit2 sports band is a GPS fitness tracker that keeps tabs on a user’s burned calories, distance, speed, route, time, hours of sleep, and stress levels. It has a 1.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage (2GB of which can be used to save music files). It connects to smart devices via Bluetooth v4.1, but it can function without one. The IP68 certification ensures water and dust resistance, while the 200mAh battery makes sure it runs for almost a week.

Hands On

The Gear Fit2 is a nice looking sports band. It has a simple and sporty design, and a crisp, easy-to-read Super AMOLED display. The band feels smooth and the build quality is ok. And it looks and feels comfortable to wear (although I’ve only worn it for a few minutes so your mileage may vary).
