After the holidays, most people head back to the gym as part of their New Years Resolution. In fact, the most popular resolution for the new year is to get back into shape. But for most people, that only lasts a few weeks, if that. With technology these days, many people are able to stay motivated a bit longer than they used too, especially if they are wearing a fitness tracker that is telling them to be more active, to run another mile, to lift another 10 pounds, etc. And one of the best fitness trackers on the market right now is the Samsung Gear Fit2.
Samsung sells the Gear Fit2 in black, blue and pink. It will work with just about any Android smartphone, although you’ll get the best experience with it paired to a Samsung device. The Gear Fit2 does run on Tizen, like Samsung’s other wearables, and it also has a heart rate monitor. Allowing you to see just how far you are going in your workouts and to see if you do need to push yourself a bit more. Samsung has also included built-in GPS, so you are able to map your run with the Samsung Gear app on your device. Much like the other fitness trackers available out there, the Gear Fit2 can track your step count, calories burned, sleep quality and so much more.
Where the Gear Fit2 stands out though, is in notifications. While it is paired to your smartphone, you can get your notifications for calls and texts right there on your wrist, and also respond to them. So if someone is texting you, there is the ability to quickly respond to them without pulling out your smartphone. Now unlike the Gear S3 Frontier, there is no option for LTE connectivity. At the time of writing this, the Gear Fit2 is on sale for just $129, which is about $50 off of the regular price and the lowest price it has ever been. It will also arrive in time for Christmas, but only if you have Amazon Prime. However, if you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial using the link below.
