Samsung Gear Fit 2 to feature embedded GPS

SAMSUNG has unveiled its new Gear Fit 2 device with an embedded GPS and heart rate monitor together with a stand alone music player.

The Gear Fit2  promises accurate and robust fitness tracking and measurement, while providing instant feedback on the user's workout.

The Gear IconX are cord-free earbuds that can track fitness information and provide users with feedback on their running performance.

Gear Fit2 features a super AMOLED curved display with a high-resolution color touchscreen for fitness monitor, or checking and responding to text message notifications.

With auto tracking, users won't have to manually activate the sports band - whether running, walking, cycling, or utilising rowing machine or elliptical trainer.

Gear IconX features three different sizes of eartips and wingtips, and can be activated by simply placing the earbuds in the user's ears.

It  enables tracking of fitness data such as distance, speed, duration, heart rate and calories burned, and easily syncs with S Health

It Includes a Voice Guide feature that provides instant voice feedback on the user's workout progress and provides a standalone music listening experience.

With Bluetooth capability and an internal storage that can play up to 1,000 MP3s, users can simply tap or swipe the earbuds to easily control the music.

Prasad Gokhale, Vice President Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics Australia, said both devices would help Australians wanting to lead a more active lifestyle.

"With standalone GPS, sleep monitoring, and IP68 water resistance, Gear Fit 2 will be a great device for Australians who want to track their movement in virtually any conditions or time of day."

"We are excited to bring the Gear Fit 2 to Australia. Building on our legacy in the wearables category, 2016 is a pivotal year for both wearables and the mobile category, offering Australians even more from their personal technology."

Pricing and availability for the Australian market is expected to be announced soon.
