Samsung Electronics has been known to produce products that may seem insignificant when put on a spec sheet. But what the company does is always create a new trend and a new segment altogether.
One such product is was the Gear Fit. The fitness band combined the use of hands-free communication as well as healthy living habits that people could get involved in. The soon to launch Gear Fit 2, however, seems to change its motive when it comes to consumers this year. This time around the device includes features that would put other wearables to shame.
New tech that delivers more:
The Gear Fit 2 has what Samsung calls a bio-processor included in the device. The new chipset is 80% smaller than all of the standard components combined, enabling it to measure body fat, skeletal muscle mass, heart rate, heart rhythm, skin temperature and stress level. Considering the lineup of these features, it may not be so important to visit your nearest diagnostic centers.
Improved location tracking:
The Gear Fit 2 is expected to have a better GPS-tracking system that monitors both indoor and outdoor activities. This improves the ability to collect better data and with more accuracy.
One Chip to rule in All:
The bio-processor chip being manufactured by Samsung is being included in all its future products that follow from mid of this year. Samsung's Galaxy smartphones too will enter the market with similar chipsets embedded, thus giving higher features than the competition.
Better wrist factors:
When the wearable is launched finally to the public, it can be rest assured that the device will be more ergonomic than the first generation. Perfectly fitting the curves of the wrist, they will provide comfort to the users all day long.
Health stats: Anywhere and everywhere
All of your health data point captured from the Gear Fit 2 is always synced to the cloud. And Samsung aims to collate the data collected to further provide more information to the user about their body. These are features that are sure to help Samsung more buyers to get active in their lifestyle.
