Samsung has unveiled 3 new wearables designed to keep you fit, informed and tuned for quality sound.
Gear Sport is a stylish, yet practical smartwatch built with military level-durability to handle a broad range of environments. With industry-leading water resistance and swim tracking, Gear Sport is an ideal companion for doing laps or just playing in the pool. Use the smartwatch to work on achieving health and wellness goals, and receive nutrition management alerts and activity recommendations even when offline. When alternating between activities, Gear Sport can automatically recognise walking, running, cycling and dynamic activities including dancing and basketball, plus keep tabs on performance through its top-of-the-line heart rate monitoring.
Gear Sport is designed with a minimalistic circular bezel and features a Super Amoled 1.2-inch display with an improved user interface that makes it easier to view information, even when on-the-go. Thanks to its changeable watch straps, Gear Sport is perfect for any occasion. Beyond fitness tracking and the usual social functions, Gear Sport can control a variety of Samsung devices including working as a remote for a PowerPoint presentation or Samsung’s Gear VR headset. Pay for goods with a flick of the wrist via Samsung Pay. Gear Sport will be available in blue and black colourways.
For everyone that doesn’t require a smartwatch but still cares about fitness, Gear Fit2 Pro is an advanced GPS fitness band with improved accuracy and real-time monitoring to encourage your best performance. It too features swim tracking paired with Speedo’s latest training app for tracking key swim metrics including lap count, lap time, stroke type and more.
