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 …

Lamb, obviously.

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) …

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro hands-on: a fitness tracker for serious workouts

Most of today’s smartwatches are already pretty good at tracking your activity. They monitor your heart beat, they measure the distance you travel, and they deliver a good estimate of the calories you burn throughout the day. But if you’re really serious about your workouts, then Samsung has something you could be interested in.

This is the new Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro, which just got officially announced in Berlin. And we got the chance to play with it!

At a glance, it looks a lot like last year’s Gear Fit 2, with a vertically aligned AMOLED touchscreen display …

Samsung quietly unveils the Gear Fit 2 Pro just ahead of the Galaxy Note 8 launch event

As we’re speaking, Samsung is getting ready to launch its next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8, but that’s not the only mobile device the company will be presenting soon. We’ve also been hearing rumors of a successor to the company’s Gear Fit 2 for quite some time now — in fact, we’ve already seen leaked renders and specs of the device.

However, the device seems to have just quietly gone official, as Samsung’s Spanish and Malaysian websites now have the device’s official promo pages up for anyone to see — which is a bit weird …

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro to be more expensive than last year's Gear Fit

Over one year after introducing the Gear Fit 2, Samsung is now getting ready to release a new Tizen-based smart band. Apparently called Gear Fit 2 Pro, the new wearable device might be announced on August 23, at the same time with the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.

Earlier this month, we saw several renders showing the Gear Fit 2 Pro, while learning quite a few things about its features. Now, we also have details about its price. According to a leaked screenshot – seen below – the Gear Fit 2 Pro will cost $199.99 at a major US retailer. That’s $20 over the launch price of the Gear Fit 2 from …
