In 2016 Samsung released the Gear Fit 2 followed by the next upgraded version Gear Fit 2 Pro back in 2017. These were specifically made for advanced athletes and had high-end features like built-in GPS sensors and higher price tags. Samsung wasn’t competing for any other fitness tracking devices but it was missing the budget fitness market, so here comes the Galaxy Fit, an affordable variant of the Gear Fit 2.
This isn’t the next version of the Gear Fit 2 or Pro, and definitely not trying to come up with all-in-one fitness device. It is simply an entry-level fitness tracking device made for people who are more conscious about their fitness and want to keep an eye on their activity level. The design of the Galaxy Fit is simple. It has 95-inch full-color AMOLED display with 120×240 resolution and 282ppi pixel density. Samsung didn’t over pack the Galaxy Fit with lots of features and sensors. It is small, light-weight and so easy to wear that you won’t even feel it on your wrist. It is great for fitness and sleep tracking. You can sleep or exercise in the gym without getting distracted from the device.
The case is made of a nice polycarbonate material that is kind of reliable for a watch. It has one physical button on the left side, and a heart rate sensor just underneath. The device has a high-quality strap made of silicone which is certainly better than the strap that comes with the Fitbit. It doesn’t attract dust easily thought it requires cleaning in harsh situations. Samsung opted an Apple watch like button clasp instead of the traditional one. This gives it a very sleek, fine look. You can keep track of your steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, your sleep time, resting or active heart rate.
