Samsung Gear Fit, we analyze the most advanced quantifier of the moment

The wearables are becoming more popular among users, especially quantizer bracelets that help us keep track of our daily activity. Given the novelty of this segment, the functions that should incorporate this type of devices are not yet well defined, so each manufacturer has its own vision of what a quantifying device should be .

In the case of Samsung, the Korean manufacturer has decided to launch a more advanced device than its competitors, with a much more advanced screen that allows us to interact in a much more complete way with our smartphone and get much more information.

Features and technical specifications

Although the technical specifications are not as relevant in wearables as they are in other devices, if we talk about specifications, the Gear Fit mounts a dual-core processor that runs at 1 GHz accompanied by 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory , all powered by a 210 mAh battery that thanks to the Super AMOLED screen gives us an autonomy of about 4 days of use.

The screen is precisely one of the protagonists of the Samsung Gear Fit , with a curved Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 128 × 432, a resolution more than enough for a size of 1.84 inches.

Opinion

The Samsung Gear Fit is undoubtedly one of the best options we have if we want to acquire a quantifier today. Its screen allows us to obtain a lot of information and control the notifications of our smartphone which brings it closer to devices such as smartwatches , making it very interesting for some users. However, you have large gaps, such as the fact that it is only officially compatible with Samsung devices or the high price.

Positive points

  • Design . The design is one of the standards of the Gear Fit, with a very good ergonomics that sometimes we do not even notice that we have it on the wrist.
  • Functionality . One of the main problems of most of the quantifiers that we have in the market is the lack of functions. It is not the case of Gear Fit, which not only allows us to monitor our physical activity, but also sleep, control notifications, measure heart rate, etc.
  • Screen . As we mentioned before, the Gear Fit screen is its main hallmark thanks to its curvature, its good quality and especially its great visibility outdoors.

Negatives

  • Compatibility . The main negative point of the Samsung Gear Fit is the lack of compatibility with devices other than Samsung itself, with only 20 terminals being officially supported, which makes the market for this quantifier very small.
  • Loader owner . None of us like having to use a charger for each device, something that seemed surpassed by the standardization of microUSB chargers on smartphones , but that seems to have come back to the fore with devices like Gear Fit that use a proprietary charger .
