The latest batch of Samsung fitness trackers – the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e, are suitable for everyone from athletes to casual joggers and designed to be worn all the time.
Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e automatically start tracking activity when you walk, run, cycle, row, hop on the elliptical trainer or start a general dynamic workout. You can also manually select from more than 90 different activities in the Samsung Health app on a smartphone. Plus, with enhanced sleep analysis and smart stress management, you can monitor your wellbeing at any time of the day. Galaxy Fit includes a heart rate tracker, but Fit e does not. Fit is also larger than Fit e, had more internal memory, a gyroscope and NFC charging.
There’s currently no word on an Australian price, although the two trackers are estimated to be priced around $99 USD. That’s significantly cheaper than any Fitbit currently on the market and more on par with Garmin’s slim Vivofit 4.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fit and Fit e feature a simple and intuitive interface. Receive alerts and messages or set the alarm, check the calendar and weather without ever needing to touch a phone. While travelling, Galaxy Fit automatically displays a dual-clock time zone to aid with managing schedules. Both trackers are water resistant to 5ATM, so they can go with you from the shower to the pool and so on.
Galaxy Fit is set to debut with Black and Silver colourways while Galaxy Fit e will be available in Black, White and Yellow. There’s currently no word on release date, so instead take a look at Samsung’s other big announcements include the Galaxy S10 smartphone, Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Active smartwatch.
