Samsung Gear Fit 2 Review – Beating the Competition



Even though Fitbit has products that are deemed to be the best-known wearable techs in today’s market, it doesn’t mean that these devices can’t be beaten at their own game, especially when you take a good look at the Samsung Gear Fit 2. After the South Korean tech firm was released back in 2014, it did take a hiatus for quite some time in manufacturing fitness trackers. It would seem that Samsung put their thinking caps back on in developing a better tracker for their customers. What this 2nd iteration to the company’s fitness tracker does is that it builds upon the blueprint of its predecessor. But that’s not all as it improves upon it by a whole lot; so much so that it has no problems whatsoever in keeping up with Fitbit devices.

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 Can Beat the Fitbit Any Day

What the Samsung Gear Fit 2 can do is that it can track more than just your workouts as it can incorporate itself with the use of its smarts in a brilliant fashion that easily differentiates itself from other smartwatches or fitness trackers. It even has an attractive form factor which is deemed to be the topping on the cake. In other words, in terms of design and feature offerings, it will easily become your absolute favorite to wear around town.

Even though fitness trackers have the usual flair, which are a boring silicon strap, one button (or perhaps two), and perhaps even a touch capacitive screen, but none of those traditional aspects can be found on the Gear Fit 2. Just like its predecessor, it delivers a large colored screen that can be found on its face which is wrapped around a silicon band. But this time around, Samsung made it more comfortable to be worn on the wrist as the screen curves elegantly.

Even though the inevitable tradeoff of the wider screen is that, of course, you will get a wider device, it does offer more features than just your traditional fitness tracker. It now has a colored-screen, GPS, and a heart-rate monitor.

Overall, the Samsung Gear Fit 2 is a fitness tracker than can give you notifications from a connected smartphone; and for the most part, it works. From its design, to its build quality, to its feature offerings – all of these elements compose of a device that is worth every penny you spend on it.

Thync Review – Embrace the Day

What separates the Thync from other wearable technologies out there is it’s not one of your average types. For starters, it does not tell you how many steps you’ve taken throughout the day, and you don’t even have to wear it 24-hours and 7-days a week. What it can do, however, is that its features are akin to that of Google Glass. You might r...Read More
