Samsung's Gear Fit2 fitness band was initially announced last week, and at the time it was stated that pre-orders would begin the day after the announcement which was June 2nd. While all the other retailers seem to have started pre-orders for the Samsung Gear Fit2 on June 3rd, Amazon was listed as an included retailer but had not begun pre-orders just yet. That changes today as the mega online merchant finally has the pre-order listing page up and it's now live for anyone who has wanted to place their pre-order through Amazon as opposed to the other included retailers.
While Amazon has started listing the Gear Fit2 up on their website, it's worth noting that right now they are only offering the black and blue colors of the fitness band. They do, however, have both of those colors in both sizes, so you can get black or blue in either the small, or medium/large sizes. In addition to pre-ordering the Samsung Gear Fit2 through Amazon consumers can also pick it up through Samsung's own website, B&H Photo, and Best Buy depending on their preference.
The Samsung Gear Fit2 comes with quite a few upgrades over the original Gear Fit that Samsung launched, and if you want a glimpse at a comparison of both, Samsung actually compared the two last week with a nice little infographic. The Gear Fit2 comes equipped with a 1.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 216 x 432, and Samsung placed a 1GHz dual-core processor on the inside to power the device. It also holds a 200 mAh battery to keep it going. You'll find 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage on the device, making it capable of storing songs locally as the Gear Fit2 was designed to have the ability to operate as a standalone music player. It also supports a wide range of different audio formats including MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC and more, and Samsung has designed the Gear Fit2 with an IP68 certification to make it dust and water resistant.
