This is Gear Fit2, Samsung's $179 bid to out-feature other fitness wearables

Jon Phillips | June 3, 2016
Built-in GPS. 4GB of music storage. Android notifications. And a pretty curved display. The Gear Fit2 packs a lot of razzle-dazzle for $179.

I don't yet have a review unit, but I did spend about 10 minutes with the band during a product demo. I found it incredibly light, and comfortable to wear. I also think Samsung’s clasping mechanism—which slides the band through a loop, aiding alignment—is an improvement over what was delivered in the Gear Fit.

Will the heart rate data be accurate? Will the interface be easy to use? And what about Spotify integration and automatic exercise tracking—how does it all work? Hopefully we’ll soon get our hands on a Gear Fit2 to begin testing.
