Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit Review

You can buy a fitness tracker, or you can buy a smartwatch. But finding a device that combines both is a lot harder. Samsung may have the perfect answer with its Gear Fit fitness band. Combining a heart rate monitor, pedometer, and smartwatch, it’s a hybrid that looks great and handles those basic fitness and watch functions with ease.

 

The screen is a 1.84 inch Super AMOLED screen that is curved to fit the contour of your writs. The screen has very bright and vibrant colors, making it really stand out. It can be a challenge to read it in bright sunlight, so you will have to adjust the settings to “outdoor brightness” mode. Unfortunately, there is no ambient light sensor, and the Gear Fit reverts to default brightness after five minutes. The Gear Fit has an interchangeable waistband that currently comes in six colors. It’s fairly comfortable, and even after a few hours, you hardly know it’s there.

 

Has just one home button that allows you to access certain apps with a double press. Just select which app you would like to link. The underside of the device has a heart rate sensor, and a proprietary docking and charging port. The Gear Fit comes with Bluetooth 4.0, an accelerometer, and gyroscope…but no GPS. The charging port on the back is a micro-USB port. It attached with two small tabs that secure it in. This doesn’t seem to be a good design, because if you break one of the tabs, it will not stay in place. One nice thing is that the Gear Fit is waterproof to a depth of 3 feet for 30 minutes. So if you want to track your heart rate while washing your car, you’re covered.

 

The Gear Fit uses a proprietary software system, which is unfortunate as you can’t use third party apps. From the Home screen, you can access the pedometer, local weather, a personal appointment calendar, or a second time zone. The option of changing the wallpaper or choose from 5 different themes. There are 10 menu options that can be split into two sections: fitness apps and smartwatch apps.

 

The exercise menu has four basic options - walking, hiking, running and cycling. Once you start your workout, you have to complete it in one session - the Gear Fit doesn’t have a pause feature. Another thing to note is that the heart rate monitor just isn’t accurate enough. The measurements vary depending on where you wear the watch on your wrist, and seem too sensitive to sweat and movements. The monitor is activated by starting your workout, which means it won’t continually monitor your heart rate.

 

As a Smartphone, it really doesn’t fare much better. You get notifications of text messages, calls, and emails. Long emails are hard to read because the screen scrunches the text together, so it’s better to read them on another device and use the Gear Fit as a notification device only. It also comes with a media controller, timer, and stopwatch. Battery life is good, with a full charge lasting about four days.

 

Samsung has blended a smartwatch with a fitness tracker, which covers an area of the market that has been lacking. The Gear Fit looks great, fits well, and has a good battery life. That being said, Samsung does need to work on the software. Once they address the issues of accuracy, and the awkward display, they will have a real contender in the market.

  • The Good :
    good battery life looks great is a heart rate monitor pedometer and smartwatch all in one fits well
  • The Bad :
    accuracy can be off awkward display
Our score:
3 / 5
