Samsung just took the wraps off its latest venture into the fitness band market with the Gear Fit2, a lightweight GPS fitness band that provides in-built GPS so that you need not take your phone with you. The Gear Fit2 is a big deal because Samsung's first-generation Gear Fit mandated Bluetooth pairing with your Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Not anymore with this next-generation fitness device.
According to Samsung, these are the official specs of the Gear Fit2: The device features a 1.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a 216 x 432p screen resolution, runs Tizen OS, Samsung's homegrown software, has 4GB of storage, 1Ghz, dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and works for all Android devices running Android 4.4 KitKat or higher with 1.5GB of RAM (any of the Android 5.0 Lollipop or Android 6.0 Marshmallow devices are more than compatible with the Gear Fit2).
Alongside of these specs, we can see that the Gear Fit2 has a standalone music player that should let you access all the music you need, which is always a huge plus for runners, athletes, and fitness trainers, and IP68 water and dust resistance so that you need not care when you're caught in the sun or rain or wind. A 200mAh battery on Tizen should suffice for more than the workout.
The Gear Fit2 will come in three colors (blue, pink, and black; availability may differ by country, though) with two different sizes (L and S) and be available starting June 10th for $199.
