Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro hands-on: A souped up Gear Fit with swim tracking

Despite looking nearly identical to the original models, they are actually a bit lighter and sport significantly longer battery life that Samsung says should allow for 5 hours of streaming audio via your phone, or 6 hours if you play music loaded directly onto the IconX's 4GB of onboard storage. The display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Expected to launch over the coming weeks, consumers should be on the lookout for the Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and IconX 2018. Gear IconX IconX cord-free earbuds let you effortlessly listen to your favorite music - making your daily commute more enjoyable and helping you get more from your workout.

Samsung claims that both the GearFit2 Pro and Gear Sport feature advanced heart rate tracking, as well as automatic activity detection for walking, running and cycling. Inside, it houses a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, and 768MB of RAM. And with new water-resistance that can withstand up to 5 atmospheres of pressure, there shouldn't be any problems wearing the Gear Sport while swimming. The Sport is, in part, a chance to appeal to a wider range of wrists, and it's also an attempt for Samsung to reconfirm its commitment to health wearables. Like the Gear Sport, the Gear Fit2 Pro is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and runs Tizen underneath the hood, which is Samsung's home grown operating system. The display is still a 1.2-inch AMOLED just like the Gear S3. We'll update this article as soon as we know more.

That gives you a 302ppi pixel density, which in short means the screen should be sharp and clear, as well as colorful thanks to Samsung's AMOLED screen technology. The smartwatch also comes with a gyroscope, barometer, heart rate sensor and ambient light sensor. These earbuds are compatible with the smartphones running on Android 4.4 or later with at least 1.5GB of RAM.

Fifth Harmony threw serious shade at Camila Cabello at the MTV VMAs
The 20-year-old singer quit the girl group in December 2016 to go it alone, and is gearing up to release 'The Hurting. She said: "This is such a monumental moment for us right now".

Each earbud has its own 4GB of storage, 82mAh battery, and weighs 8g.

Priced at $199 and set for retail availability on September 15th, the Gear Fit2 Pro is quite an appealing little watch replacement for exercise-tracking enthusiasts. They're now also available in black, grey and pink colour models.

We suppose we'll just have to wait and see what the company has in store for us, so do keep in mind to tune in during IFA 2017 and Samsung's live stream if this is something you might be interested in.
