Using the Samsung Gear Fit 2 during your workout means that your calories are added up automatically and can be tailored to your workout. The automatic workout logging can make it easier for you to keep track of your workout goals.
The built-in GPS function is also accompanied by a heart rate monitor that uses infrared light blasters and green LEDs to track the rate of blood flow. The device also tracks your steps as well as altitude for stairs and hikes, while tracking cycling, hiking, lunges and crunches can be easier. Auto-tracking automatically tracks speed, distance and duration for popular cardio exercises.
The device also has a unique “inactive timer” on the home screen which keeps track of the amount of time that you’ve been stationary.
The device also comes standard with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage for music and installing Samsung-made apps.
Variants include black, blue and pink, while the device is also water-resistant.
