Samsung's Gear Sport now has Modern Fitness Tracking

On the sidelines of the IFA trade show in Berlin on Wednesday, Samsung unveiled the Gear Sport smartwatch, Gear Fit2 Pro fitness tracker, and its Apple AirPods rival IconX 2018 wireless earbuds, furthering its commitment to making waves in what is still nascent wearable market. It's lighter, smaller, and slicker than the Gear S3, which was already among the best-looking smartwatches you could buy. The Gear Sport will arrive in black or blue models (pictured above). The new Samsung Gear Sport pushes further into fitness, adding some features that were overdue.

The watch features the rotating dial as well. You can tap on the 1.2-inch display to take calls, chat with Bixby, or control your smart-home devices. Inside, it houses a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, and 768MB of RAM. Inside, there's a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, and 512 of RAM. You can charge the 300mAh battery on the smartwatch wirelessly, the company said. Earlier reports claimed that the next Apple Watch installment will have LTE support. A number of new features have been introduced with this watch such as: An improved caloric counter, support for Samsung SmartThings, the ability to control a Powerpoint presentation with the watch or use the dial as a VR controller. It's main changes are a more textured band and the water-resistant treatmentBut hey, at least you can choose from red or red/black color options across two different sizes. Samsung's post reads, "The invite-only event will showcase products created to seamlessly integrate into everyday life and streamline more facets of our evolving, increasingly connected lifestyles". The pricing and availability are yet to be announced. You also get a new selection of fitness programs included with the watch software, accompanied by videos you can watch on a phone or big screen. The device has a Super AMOLED curved 1.5-inch display and an ergonomic band that is light weight and very comfortable on the wrist. The Gear Fit2 Pro sports a curved 1.5-inch display and inbuilt Global Positioning System, and like the Gear Sport, is water-resistant up to 50 metres.

The complete lack of wires is a refreshing break for the tethered together status of some other wireless earphones, and the smart charging case looks good too - particularly in pink.

The battery capacity of the Gear Sport stands at 300 mAh, and that of the Gear Fit Pro stands at 200 mAh. The price for the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro has been announced - it will be priced in at $199 and will be available starting the 15th of September.

However it seems that in addition to new wearables, Samsung's announcement also suggests that they will be launching other connected devices as well.

We're fans of the Gear Fit 2, and at IFA it got some incremental, but significant updates.
