Introduced in June 2016, the Samsung Gear Fit2 is an interesting wearable that positions itself somewhere between a basic fitness band and a smartwatch. It’s a direct successor to the first generation of Samsung wearable and offers up tracking of steps, exercises, calories burned, and more.
As one might expect, it pairs up nicely with a Samsung smartphone; however, most of today’s Android handsets (Android 4.4+ with at least 1.5GB RAM) are compatible with the unit. One downside, though, is that there’s no way to connect it to an iPhone.
The Samsung Gear Fit 2 has a slim design with a gorgeous curved Super AMOLED display. Upon taking it out of the box we immediately noticed how soft the material was for the straps and how the curvature fit our wrist. Moreover, the bands have a dimpled texture on the outside while the inside is… well, ribbed.
