Samsung Gear Fit Updated With Vertical Display Orientation Option

By Vivek

Samsung, one of the heavy-weight players in the smartphone arena, announced a range of its new devices back at the International Mobile World Congress 2014 held in February. These devices, which were announced were the Galaxy S5, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit.

Samsung Gear Fit Updated With Vertical Display Orientation Option


From all the devices, what seemed odd in the last device, the Gear Fit, which is a fitness band from the company was the lack of the device's display to project content vertically. Thus it was pretty absurd. The fitness band that is to be worn like a watch and doesn't show the content vertically is a disastrous disadvantage.

But now it seems like Samsung has fixed the problem. New Gear Fit devices in Korea seems to have this vertical orientation and the Samsung's official store blog shows the Gear Fit's vertical UI. Now you can thus find the Gear Fit more efficient.

To refresh on the device's specs, it has a wide 1.84-inch (432 x 128 pixels) Curved Super AMOLED display. It also has Pedometer, Heart Rate sensor, Accelerometer and Gyro sensors. It has IP67 ratings for dust and water resistance and uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE to pair with your Samsung Smartphone. Moreover, it also has Heart Rate sensor to monitor your heart rate easily and offers Notifications for calls, SMS, E-mails and more, when paired with Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

It should be noted that the update that enables the vertical orientation of the display in the Gear Fit is not rolled out globally. Thus you will have to wait for it as the company will release the update phase-wise.


If you are wondering about the pricing of the device, the Samsung Gear Fit will cost you Rs. 15,450 in India and its on sale already.
