Samsung Announces Gear Sport And Gear Fit2 Pro In India

The Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch and Gear Fit2 Pro fitness tracker originally introduced at IFA 2017 in Berlin have now been officially announced in India ahead of a market release set for December 11. Both products will be available for pre-order in early December, and while the fitness tracker will be launched exclusively through Flipkart, the full-fledged smartwatch will be distributed solely by Amazon India.

The Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro is a GPS-enabled fitness band featuring a 1.5-inch slightly curved rectangular Super AMOLED display bearing a resolution of 216 by 432 pixels, leading to a pixel density of 310 pixels per inch. The device is powered by a 1.0GHz dual-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM, and sports 4GB of built-in storage. In terms of connectivity, the wearable supports Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n as well as GPS, and sensor-wise the fitness tracker takes advantage of an accelerometer, a barometer, gyroscope, and a heart rate monitor. Powered by a 200mAh battery the wearable is rated to last up to 5 days, though mileage will vary.

As for the Samsung Gear Sport, this wearable takes the form of a smartwatch featuring a circular display, and as far as capabilities go the device combines the functionality of both the Gear S3 smartwatch and Gear Fit2 Pro fitness tracker into a single package, making it somewhat of a hybrid wearable. The Gear Sport offers a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 by 360 and while it also uses a 1.0GHz processor and 4GB of on-board memory, it ups the RAM to 768MB. Both the smartwatch and fitness tracker run Tizen OS and can be synced with smartphones running Android 4.4 or later. They offer 5 ATM water resistance and in terms of durability, they have both successfully passed the Military Standard (MIL-STD) 810G durability tests. Prospective buyers in India will be able to acquire the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro in Black or Red colors for the price of Rs. 13,590 ($211), whereas the Gear Sport smartwatch will be available in Black and Blue flavors for the price of Rs. 22,990 or the rough equivalent of $357. Both wearables will be available on pre-order terms for one week beginning on December 4th.
