Showing off more Samsung curved displays is the Samsung Gear Fit, which appears to be the company's entry into the growing list of health tracking smart bands. Like the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch the Gear Fit also displays notifications and incoming calls or messages but does away with any camera feature. While it offers a pedometer, timer, heart rate sensor, accelerometer and other health tracking the Gear Fit does have a fairly sensitive wide and narrow 1.84-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with very nice colours. As usual, it can be used as a bluetooth companion device but can also operate on it's own as a health tracking smart band. The Gear Fit is also IP67 certified so it can take some rain, dust and rough weather with ease.  The full tech specs of the Samsung Gear Fit can be seen below:

  • 1.84” Curved Super AMOLED (432x128)
  • Supports Bluetooth v4.0 LE
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyro, Heart Rate
  • 23.4 x 57.4 x 11.95 mm | 27g
  • 210 mAh battery (Typical Usage 3~4 days, Low Usage up to 5 days)
  • IP67 Dust and Water Resistant

Samsung haven't revealed all the tech specs but the Gear Fit should be using Tizen as the operating system. The longer battery life should also be very much welcome. No news yet on any Malaysia release dates or pricing but it should be available in or after April 2014.
