Mobile World Congress 2014: Samsung shows off Gear Fit with haptic feedback

3:22 /

Samsung launches a new fitness band at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The new device offers users a heart rate tracker and pedometer functionality, and connects to the company's S Health app to manage overall fitness.

Gear Fit redefines the category. It's not like any health band out there. This is the world's first, curved, Super AMOLED, touchscreen display on a wearable device. It's definitely a beautiful look, born from amazing technology. Built for lightweight flexibility, the Gear Fit weighs in at 27 grams and with the same freedom of self expression that comes with the Gear 2, you can swap out the straps. So, ultimately, you get to cater to your tastes, and standard colors come in black, gray and orange, plus designer choices as well. The straps are also hypoallergenic. And what elevates the Gear Fit into a whole new category is that you could stay up to date with instant notifications on your Gear Fit as well. You can also interact with your Galaxy device, such as rejecting a call, controlling the alarm, and using quick message reply. And these things are impossible with other fitness bands. And you'll be happy to know, Gear Fit is compatible with 20 Galaxy devices. Most importantly, Gear 2 and Gear Fit have a built-in heart rate sensor so you know how your bodies react into a workout. By checking your heart rate, the fitness manager will tell you to slow down or speed up if there's a sense that you're slacking off. Even your day-to-day activity measured by the built-in pedometer on Gear 2 and Gear Fit keep track of how far you've walked that day or that week. So Gear 2 and Gear Fit, quite a team. Now, since all Gears interact with the S5, it's important to note that your fitness and health data is tracked and analyzed on the S5 with the all-new S Health, our all-in-one fitness management solution. Additionally, data on exercise, nutrition, and weight can be included manually for even more acute analysis of your health. Galaxy S5 comes with built-in support for ANT+ so you can communicate with various sports and fitness-related accessories for more intensive fitness monitoring. As part of S Health, you can download an app called Coach, which gives you personalized tips and recommendations for reaching your fitness goals in these five areas, exercise, food, sleep, stress, and weight.
