Samsung launches the Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band once again


Last updated: August 30th, 2017 at 18:10 UTC+02:00

It has been consistently rumored over the past couple of months that Samsung will launch a new fitness tracking band soon. The company actually published the official product page of the Gear Fit2 Pro ahead of schedule last week. The product page revealed all of the details about this device before it was eventually taken down.

Samsung officially launched the Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band at its IFA 2017 press conference today. It’s an upgraded version of the Gear Fit 2 from last year with new smart features.

The Gear Fit2 Pro measures 51mm x 25mm and weighs just 34 grams. It has a 1.5-inch AMOLED 216×432 pixel resolution touchscreen display. There’s a dual-core 1.0GHz processor under the hood with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It’s built to the MID-STD-810G durability standard and has a 200mAh battery.

Swim tracking is the Gear Fit2 Pro’s biggest new feature. It’s water resistant up to 50 meters and provides swim tracking features courtesy of Speedo’s new app.

The Gear Fit2 Pro is also capable of automatically detecting activities like cycling, running, walking as well as dynamic activities like basketball and dancing.

The new wearable device supports local music playback. Users can access Spotify on the wearable device and even use its Offline mode to listen to their favorite tracks offline even when it’s not paired to their smartphone.

Connectivity options include Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n and GPS/GLONASS. It’s compatible with Android devices running Android 4.3 and up as well as select iPhones running iOS 9.0 and up.

It comes with a new secure and ergonomic band which is light weight and more comfortable to use. The Gear Fit2 Pro will be available in Black and Red colors.

The Gear Fit2 Pro is going to cost 229.99 euro. It will be released in Europe on September 9.
