Deal: Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro now comes with free U Flex headphones ($80 value) in tow

When Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro went on pre-order in the United States back in September, customers who would get one would also receive the U Flex headphones for free. Once the wearable hit the shelves, the deal disappeared and customers who would purchase Gear Fit 2 Pro wouldn’t the pair of earphones for free.

However, since Samsung kicked off its “12 Days of Joy” promotional offer, every day there’s a new crazy deal that customers can take advantage of. Today’s deal brings back the pre-order offer that Samsung had available back in September, which means if you …


Plantronics BackBeat Fit 300 hands-on

Continuing its assault into the fitness category, Plantronics is giving consumers variety in the form of what they can choose to bring to the gym for workouts, as the new Plantronics Fit 300 is an ultra-lightweight offering from the company. While its other solution, the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 500, is for users who prefer the on-the-ear style, the BackBeat Fit 300 on the other hand will cater to those who want something in-ear instead.

Compared to its offerings in the fitness category in previous years, the BackBeat Fit 300 takes a totally different approach with …

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 500 hands-on

Wireless headset maker, Plantronics, is hoping that one of its latest Bluetooth headphones will strike a balance between form and function. The Plantronics BackBeat Fit 500 expands the company’s line of “fit” headsets, which are intended to cater to fitness fanatics that require an extreme level of protection against their rigorous routines – while still delivering solid audio performance in the process.

While it’s a distant cousin to the Plantronics BackBeat 500, which was released earlier in the year, the BackBeat Fit 500 clearly has a more aggressive design. For starters, …

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro Review

Today’s fitness tracker market feels oversaturated with devices of various shapes, sizes, and feature sets to the point where simply choosing which one you want to get becomes an exercise much tougher than the ones you’ll be doing once you actually buy it.

But despite this, last year Samsung still managed to position its Gear Fit 2 as one of the best options on the market, thanks to its inclusion of almost every major feature you can think of — and then some. So it’s not exactly surprising that, rather than release an all-new entry in its Gear Fit series this year, Samsung instead …

Will my iPhone 7/Plus case fit the new iPhone 8/Plus? Apple thinks so

The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come slightly taller, wider and thicker than their iPhone 7 and 7 Plus predecessors. The differences, however, are a fraction of an inch, so if you have been wondering whether your old case will fit the new phones, it probably will, at least according to Apple’s official accessory page. We just took a peak, and there the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases are listed as compatible with the 7 and 7 Plus. Oh, the joy. 

Not only Apple’s, but also all third-party wrappers from Otterbox and others are also listed as compatible with both phone …

Awesome wallpapers that are a perfect fit for the iPhone X and its OLED display

The iPhone X is official, and it marks the most radical redesign the iPhone has seen since its original release 10 years ago. With its pixel-dense display with a resolution of 

1125 x 2436 and almost bezel-less design, the iPhone X begs for some special decorations (not to mention that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, which in and of itself is a special occasion).
Oh yeah, and this time around, Apple has gone for an OLED panel, which means that all the cool dark wallpapers we’ve prepared will look extra-sweet on the …

Which new Samsung wearable should you choose: Gear Sport vs Gear Fit 2 Pro vs Gear Icon X (2018) comparison

Samsung unveiled three new wearables at IFA 2017: the Samsung Gear Sport, the Gear Fit 2 Pro, and the Gear Icon X (2018).
And they are quite different: the Gear Sport is a round smartwatch, the Fit 2 Pro is a fitness band with more sporty look and a tinier display, and the new Gear Icon X are smart wireless earbuds. But they all do some things in a similar way, and all of them are actually able to help you in some way during a work-out. 
So let’s look at the three and how they differ, not just in their obvious …

Samsung officially announces the Gear Fit 2 Pro with 5 ATM water resistance and improved strap design

Just last week, at least two local Samsung websites published the official product pages for one of the company’s latest wearables, the Gear Fit 2 Pro. And while we were sitting there wondering whether this was a weird but deliberate decision on Samsung’s part, all the info was pulled, proving it was actually just mistake.

But today at the Korean giant’s pre-IFA press conference, the Gear Fit 2 Pro was finally made official, this time for real. And just as we’ve already seen, it’s little more than an update on an already existing (but still quite good) …
