Samsung already offers wearable fitness trackers like the Gear Fit 2 and also provides health and fitness tracking features in smartwatches like the Gear S2 and the Gear S3. The company has now filed a new trademark application for the Gear Fit Pro brand. On the face of it, this might be a new wearable fitness tracker that offers advanced health and fitness tracking features.
Perhaps it might tap into Samsung’s Simband health platform for cloud-sourced health tracking that the company announced three years ago. Samsung showed off the Simband, a reference wearable device for this platform that any manufacturer can use to build their own devices. The Simband wearable featured a variety of sensors that measure data points like oxygen level, body temperature, heart rate and more.
Samsung has filed this trademark application with the European Agency For Intellectual Property. It’s unclear at this point in time what features this wearable device might have that will set it apart from somewhat similar products like the Gear Fit 2.
