At the event that Samsung will have on the 23rd of August in New York, it is anticipated that the company will debut the new Gear Fit 2 Pro. We also now have the first photos of the upcoming gadget, which were kindly given to us by Venture Beat.
Some time ago, in 2016, the South Korean technology giant introduced its tracker of the 2nd generation. The wearable device was equipped with a commendable upgrade in specifications, which included an independent music player, expanded internal memory, and a gorgeous AMOLED display. The GPS and barometer that were built right into the system were the biggest improvements in terms of sensors.
In an effort to further confound matters, Samsung has chosen to refer to its newest fitness tracker as the Gear Fit 2 Pro. It is anticipated that the wearable will come equipped with all of the aforementioned features, in addition to having a waterproof rating of up to 5 ATMs (50 meters), which is an improvement from the IP68 rating of its preceding gadget. Your swim practices will also be able to be managed by the monitor, and it will synchronize with the Speedo On application in order to provide you with more precise statistics. Additionally, it will have functionality for playing Spotify playlists remotely.
In addition to that, there have been some design adjustments made. The Gear Fit Pro 2 will have a clasp similar to that of a watch rather than a button clasp, most likely to prevent it from coming undone in the middle of a backstroke. The screen also looks like it fits the borders of the gadget a little bit better than it did before.
The rumour that a new product is on the way should fill you with ecstatic joy if you are a swimmer who also has a Spotify subscription. There has been no announcement regarding cost as of yet, but maybe we will have more information at Samsung’s launch event.
