Samsung announces the Gear Fit 2, with built in GPS, for under USD 200 (~RM 828)


After so many leaks online, the latest health tracker from Samsung is finally launched. The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is a refresh of the original Gear Fit, that was launched in 2014, and it comes with more features than the eye could see.  

First of all, it’s bigger thanks to the 1.5 inch AMOLED screen. It needs the bugger screen as it now has a built-in GPS,which can be used with the built-in map app to show you the way around. It also has the now-standard assortment of personal health metrics: steps, sleep, various activities, and heart rate built in. 

Another cool feature is that it has a built in Spotify app, so that you can run while listening to your tunes -  but you still need your phone as it doesn’t have a 3G radio. Otherwise just load up your songs to its built-in 4GB of storage. 


The Gear Fit 2 is compatible with any Android smartphone running Android 4.4.4 and above. It will come in three colours, and will retail at USD 179 (~RM730). There is no availability details yet for Malaysia from Samsung Malaysia, so stay tuned for up to date info here on TechNave.
