What’s is it?
Samsung’s second-generation fitness band, comes with an inbuilt GPS and has a curved super AMOLED display.
How does it feel out of the box?
The first thing that you would notice is the the curved super AMOLED display which is quite crisp and is bright enough even in broad daylight. The UI (user interface) is quite intuitive and very Samsung-ish. It can be paired with any Android device and you don’t specifically need a Samsung phone for it. It cannot be used with an iPhone.
How does it perform?
The heart rate sensor works fine when you are resting but struggles a bit to catch your heart rate precisely during workouts. The GPS sensor tracks your distance and speed using coordinates and you do not need to carry your phone with you all the time.It has an auto-tracking feature that is able to assume whether you are working out, sitting idle or on the move. The UI isn’t entirely based on touch and it comes with two different buttons on the side which have work in coordination of the touch input. The battery lasts for a couple of days with normal usage which is disappointing.
What’s so Special?
The display is pretty crisp and the auto-tracking feature are definitely a hit. It comes with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of inbuilt memory which is powered a Tizen processor mated to a 1 GHz dual-core Samsung processor.
What’s the Verdict?
At ₹ 14000, the Fit 2 does offer a lot in terms of features but having said that, it nearly does whatever your phone’s fitness app does, so is it worth the extra spend? Well, if you are a hardcore fitness junkie, then the Gear Fit2 makes a lot of sense.
