The Gear Fit 2 Pro, Gear Sport, and new Gear IconX buds have been unveiled by Samsung

The Gear Fit 2 Pro, Gear Sport, and Gear IconX 2018 biometric headphones were the three new items that Samsung used its press event at IFA to officially launch today. It’s possible that information about them had already been leaked before the event. To date, this represents Samsung’s most significant push in the realm of health and fitness. It also follows closely on the heels of the arrival of Fitbit’s first fully fledged smartwatch, the Ionic, which was much anticipated by the public.

According to DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, “We would like to contribute to dispelling the myths that being fit can only imply a single thing and that fitness trackers are difficult to use and should be reserved for the most strenuous of workouts.” Specifically, we want to help remove the stigma that being fit can only mean one thing.

Our brand new wearable technology, Samsung Gear, enables customers to “go beyond fitness” and enjoy an active, balanced, and full life in a way that is both seamless and intelligent.

Both the Gear Sport and the Gear Fit 2 Pro have a water resistance of up to 50 meters, which is a common denominator between the two (5 ATM). This implies that you may now take a shower or bath without having to remove the Samsung wearable device that is attached to your wrist. The Speedo app will keep track of your data (the type of stroke you used, the number of strokes you took, and the number of laps you completed), and it will display these statistics in an easy-to-read summary. In addition to that, it will give you a “SWOLF,” which is a measurement of the effectiveness of each stroke. According to Rob Hicking, Brand Director at Speedo International, “Our collaboration with Samsung is the first of its kind and brings the very best of Samsung’s technological innovation together with Speedo’s swim expertise to provide fitness-focused swimmers with a completely new level of tracking.” Our collaboration is the result of bringing together the very best of Samsung’s technological innovation and Speedo’s swimming expertise.

Each of these wearables comes equipped with a global positioning system (GPS) and auto-recognition software for a wide variety of activities, like tennis, basketball, and even dancing! You are also able to create your own wellness plans, complete with individualized objectives and notifications.

In addition to monitoring your activities throughout the day, the Gear Sport and Gear Fit 2 Pro will continuously monitor your heart rate and provide you with information regarding the zone of your heart rate that you are in during physical activity. When it comes to monitoring your heart rate, Samsung claims that its newest wearables offer greater accuracy than their predecessors. You will also be able to stream fitness videos to your Samsung TV with Gear Sport, and while you are working out, you will be able to monitor your heart rate on the larger display.

Customers will receive a complimentary subscription to Under Armour’s online service for a period of one full year. The business has also reached an agreement with Spotify to provide users with the ability to download tracks, which can then be kept on their devices, played without the need for a smartphone, and listened to without the need for an internet connection.

The South Korean tech giant says that both of these wearables will work with the iPhone and other Android phones at first.

Gear Sport

With the release of the Gear Sport, Samsung has taken another step deeper into the smartwatch market. There were rumors that the new piece of hardware would be an updated version of the Gear S3, but what we actually have is something completely different. The wearable device has a very athletic appearance and appears to be quite similar to the Gear S2 that was released two years ago. The name of the wearable device suggests that it has a sporty appearance. This is a device that, in a way, combines fitness tracking and smartwatch features into a small package.

The circular screen of the Gear Sport is 1.2 inches in diameter, constantly on, and displays in full color. It has a resolution of 320 by 320 and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The display is not quite as large as the one on the Gear S3, which is 1.3 inches. In addition to that, the screen resolution is lower.

Tinzen 3.0 is the first operating system to be used by the Gear Sport, which was also the first to run on the Gear Fit 2 Pro. An accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, heart rate sensor, sensor for ambient light, and a global positioning system are all located behind the hood. In addition to keeping track of your fitness, the watch has NFC circuitry that will allow it to work with Samsung Pay, the company’s payment service.

The battery capacity of the Samsung Gear Sport will be lower when compared to that of the older Samsung Gear S3 (300 mAh versus 380 mAh). It will run for up to 4 days on a full charge, but it will only run for 4 hours with the GPS turned on. Wireless charging is available.

The Gear Sport is scheduled to be released around the time of the holidays. Samsung has not yet provided any information regarding the price.

Gear Fit 2 Pro

The Gear Fit 2 Pro is not a completely new product from the third generation. Instead, it is, as expected, an improved version of the Gear Fit 2.

The overall look has not been much altered. The curved Super AMOLED screen with a 1.5-inch display that is 16 million colors and has a resolution of 216 by 432 pixels reveals specifics of your activities, sleep hours, and other information.

The Gear Fit 2 Pro is only somewhat heavier than its predecessor, coming in at 33 grams rather than 32. Additionally, it is of a significantly larger size (25.0 x 51.3 mm versus 24.5 x 51.2 mm). If you want to keep your tracker on your wrist while you swim, there is now a new buckle strap that has been redesigned to make it even better.

Regarding the remaining specifications, it’s business as usual. The fitness tracker has 0.5 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 4.0 gigabytes of internal memory, and it also has a GPS receiver, an accelerometer, a barometer, a gyroscope, a heart rate sensor, and a barometric altimeter.

When it comes to the amount of time that can pass between charges on Samsung’s most recent fitness tracker, the company claims that it can operate for up to 5 days. Expect a shorter run time from your 200 mAh battery if you use it more frequently. When the GPS is activated, this time estimate drops to 9 hours.

The wearable item is available in the hues of black and red, as well as large and small sizes. The small version is designed for wrists that measure between 125 and 165 millimeters, while the large version has a strap that can accommodate wrists measuring between 158 and 205 millimeters.

The 2018 Gear IconX

The IconX 2018 is Samsung’s response to Apple’s AirPods in the wireless headphone market. The cordless buds allow you to listen to music either by streaming it from your phone or by accessing the 4 GB of built-in storage (per earbud) in order to play it back offline. Simply transfer songs using Bluetooth connectivity from a Samsung smartphone or a computer.

The biometric earphones automatically track your jogging routines, making them ideal for anyone who is into exercise. In addition to that, they come with an independent audio coach function that will provide you with feedback on your performance in real time.

One of the most crucial features is the capability to activate Bixby, Samsung’s intelligent artificial intelligence assistant, by simply tapping the IconX button and then using your voice to do tasks. You are able to operate things like your music or your phone without having to use your hands.

The earbuds’ battery life is enough for up to five hours of streaming music or seven hours of listening to audio when used on their own.
