In the world of wearables, manufacturers like Samsung have quite a few wearables already under their belt, and one of their latest, the Gear Fit 2, is likely to be launching later on this year. The Gear Fit 2 first appeared in leaked images last month alongside a brand new wearable from Samsung called the Gear Icon X, which are to be a pair of truly wireless earbuds similar to the Bragi Dash. As for the Gear Fit 2, More images of the device surfaced on the web earlier this month, just last week in fact, and the device appears to be coming in three colors of Black, Blue, and what looks like a Maroon or Purple color. Now, the latest rumor suggests that Samsung may be preparing to launch the Gear Fit 2 in South Korea as early as June.

Although the Gear Fit 2 may hit South Korea next month, there is no exact date in June that has been listed. If it launches early on in the month, that leaves a bit more time for it to launch in the same month in other regions around the globe. The Gear Fit 2 is speculated to have a cost of about $150-$200 when it launches in the U.S. which would be similar pricing to the original Gear Fit that Samsung launched back in 2014.

The Gear Fit 2 is rumored to be coming with a Bio-Processor, which was not only absent from the first Gear Fit, but it would also be a first for fitness trackers in general. With the Bio-Processor on board, the Gear Fit 2 would be able to provide features like bioelectrical impedance analysis, and an electrocardiogram for displaying electrical activity of the heart and more. It's also said to have a 1.84-inch AMOLED display with 4GB of internal storage and built-in GPS. Whether or not it will be waterproof or at least water-resistant is still unknown but it is a good possibility that Samsung will add this feature given that their latest smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, are water-resistant. Although there is no detail on exact release dates for the Gear Fit 2 in any region at this point in time, Samsung has at least acknowledged the device exists.
