Samsung Gear Fit – Star of the MWC for Samsung

Samsung unveiled the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo before Samsung's Unpacked 5 event, and most of us definitely thought that would be all from Samsung in MWC regarding wearable’s. But the Gear Fit is a little something extra keep right on the edge of Samsung's sleeve. The Gear Fit is about the most exciting product announced in Barcelona today. It’s the first Samsung wearable that has a legitimate chance of catching on.

As its name suggests, the Fit is aimed towards fitness enthusiasts and is a wristband with a 1.84” curved Super AMOLED display. It packs a resolution of 432 x 128 pixels and alerts you of incoming notifications. It runs Tizen OS and features a heartbeat sensor on its down-facing side. In addition to measuring your heartbeat it can also measure how many steps you’ve made, thanks to the built in pedometer.

The Fit is focused to the fitness crowd – but it packs enough features to be a hit with the general consumer. The Gear Fit supports SMS, calls, emails and app notifications and weighs just 27 grams. The Gear Fit is 23.4mm by 57.4mm by 11.95mm only. The Fit doesn't sport a camera, speaker or a massive screen. It’s svelte and sexy just like a SmartWatch should be. Gear Fit has a three to four-day battery life under normal usage, though only five under light usage conditions.

Samsung will also launch changeable straps for the Fit in black, orange and mocha grey to let users express their individual style. The wristband employs Bluetooth 4.0 LE as the connectivity protocol of choice. But it won’t support other smartphones except 20 members from GALAXY line. Apps for the Gear 2 will, by necessity, come in two forms: Android and Tizen.

Samsung has yet to reveal the price on the Fit and that could be the deciding factor here. If the Fit was priced under $200, say, $179 or $149, Samsung could have a big hit on its hands. With a smart feature set and the right price, the Fit could be the missing link from fitness device to SmartWatch the market has so far been missing. I am pretty sure that some point in 2014 i would definately buy this thing if the pricing from Samsung is not too hilarious. What about you?
