Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro, Gear Sport land in India

Samsung launches Gear Fit2 Pro Gear Sport in India know key specifications features price

Pre-bookings start from December 4.

Both wearables will go on sale starting December 11.

Samsung introduced two new products in their wearables category back in October during IFA 2017.

The Tizen-based Gear Sport has the same movable bezel as before and supports Samsung Pay for cashless payments. The Gear S3, launched by Samsung a year ago, still remains to be the king in the North as far as the South Korean major's trysts with fitness/smart wearable technology is concerned. Gear Fit2 Pro also doubles up as a display for showing map directions, activities and replying to text messages.

The Gear Sport is priced at Rs 22,990.

Unlike the Gear S3, the Gear Sport is lighter, thinner, lacks cellular connectivity, and is also swim-proof. Of these Spotify isn't available in India for now. The Gear Sport also has an Always On display feature which will show a watchface of user's choice throughout the day. However, it's not meant for diving or other high-pressure water activities.

If that wasn't enough, the Gear Sport, can also be used to stream workout videos to a Samsung TV and remote controlling a Gear VR headset. Visuals are displayed through a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED 360 x 360p screen which offers Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

However, while the Gear S3 comes with a speaker allowing you to make and receive calls, the same is absent from the Gear Sport. Samsung Gear Sport runs Tizen OS and is compatible with smartphones powered by Android Jellybean 4.3 and above.

Both Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro are able to track your swims, walking, running, and cycling among others. Powering the fitness tracker is a dual Core 1.0 GHz processor, 4GB internal memory, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 200mAh battery. It is not only compatible with Android devices, but also with iPhones running iOS 9 and above.

Now, moving on to the Gear Fit2 Pro, it also shares some similarities with the Gear Fit2 in terms of design and specifications. For one, the Gear Fit 2 Pro comes with a new buckle clasp instead of the unwieldy peg-and-hole closure on the original Gear Fit 2. Targeting fitness-centric audience, both wearables come with improved water resistance of 50 meters. Speaking of Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro, the wearable sports a 1.5-inch Super AMOLED curved display with 216x432-pixel resolution and 310ppi.

Unlike the Gear Sport, the Gear Fit2 Pro is a fitness tracker by Samsung.

The Gear Fit 2 Pro, in addition, supports Global Positioning System, continuous heart rate monitoring and comes with 4GB of on-board storage enough to store up to 500 songs.
