Samsung is one of the manufacturers that has shown that its serious with wearables. The company has a fitness band and a few smartwatches that it uses to show its prowess in the industry. The company’s first fitness band, the Gear Fit was unveiled back in 2014 and it looks like the company is ready to update it.
Samsung is currently working on the Gear Fit 2 which it will be unveiling later this month. We have seen numerous leaks about this fitness band and it will be nice to finally see what Samsung has been working on. We kind of know of what the Gear Fit 2 will be all about as the leaks have revealed every spec about it and now we have photos to accompany.
According to rumors, the Gear Fit 2 will have a 1.55 inch Super AMOLED display which will have a resolution of 216 x 432 pixels. Powering it will be a 1GHz dual-core processor made by Samsung paired with 512MB of RAM and 2GB of internal storage space. This looks like a good combination for a smart wearable.
For the OS, the Gear Fit 2 will come with Tizen OS 2.3 which is something we expected as Samsung has categorically stated that it has no plans of making a wearable device powered by Google’s Android Wear anytime soon. The fitness band will come with a 200 mAh battery.
Samsung is also planning to include GPS and GLONASS on the Gear Fit 2. These were not available on the original Gear Fit. These are just some of the many features Samsung will be adding to this fitness band, we will know more when it is launched sometime this month.
