Gear Fit smart fitness band now $135 at Amazon
Remember the Gear Fit? It was the first Samsung curved AMOLED display device that received major media attention. While the smartwatch space is growing and taking off in respectable fashion, Samsung’s Gear S is, no doubt, the most attractive fitness band on the market.
Well, Amazon’s back with a deal for us. What is it? The fitness band that is the standard for smart fitness bands today is at a discount, down from its original price of $199 to $135 – a price drop of $64, a little over 32% of the original price. Amazon promises free shipping for this item (it’s clearly over the $35 free shipping requirement), and the new price is $15 below Amazon’s own list price for the Gear Fit ($149.99), and Amazon’s same price fits that of Samsung’s
For your $135, you’re getting a 1.84-inch, curved Super AMOLED display with a 432 x 128p screen resolution, Bluetooth 4.0, a 210mAh battery, running on Samsung’s own proprietary Tizen OS. Samsung says that you can get 2-4 days with typical usage, but you can reach 5 days on a single charge if you’re a low-power user. Amazon doesn’t list the Galaxy Note 4 as a compatible device, but we know a few users out and about with their Gear Fit that pair their smart fitness band with the Note 4 at this point. It will also work with the Galaxy S5, Note 3, S4 Active, S4 Zoom, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and even Samsung tablets such as the Note 10.1 2014 Edition, NotePRO 12.2, and 12.2-inch, 10.1-inch, and 8.4 inch TabPRO models. The legendary Note 2 and revolutionary Galaxy S3 are given some love here, too.
Fitness bands have their place, and so does this sale. We aren’t told how long the sale will last, so do your best to grab a Gear Fit fitness band as soon as you can. The summer’s almost here, and you want to be sure to get fit and look cool doing it.
