Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro Targets Fitness Buffs
Samsung today updated its dedicated fitness band, the Fit2 Pro. This wearable features a 1.5-inch curved OLED display and runs Samsung's Tizen operating system. The device features a plastic build with a buckle-style strap to keep it firmly in place. The wearable is water resistant to 50 meters and can tackle salt water for ocean-based swimming. Samsung says it meets mil-spec certification for protection from abuse, such as drops, shock, temperature extremes, and high altitude. The Fit2 Pro includes an optical heart rate monitor and can check the wearer's heart rate as often as every second. Other features include GPS for tracking workouts and a bevy of fitness apps, as well as integration with Samsung's Health and Nutrition platform. The wearable includes 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage for holding up to about 500 songs for listening on the go. The Fit2 Pro will be available for preorder starting August 31 and it ships starting September 15. It will cost $199 and will be sold by Samsung as well as Best Buy, B&H, and Macy's.
