Main Review

The Gear Fit 2 includes a built-in GPS so that you track your running route, distance and speed in real time. It also has a built in heart rate sensor so whether your running, walking, cycling or elliptical training the Gear Fit 2 has you covered. Check out the video review to see all the different exercise options. The 1.5 inch display is excellent and shows all your stats needed as you workout. The Gear Fit 2 comes with a number of different watch faces, some are customisable too. The Gear Fit 2 comes in black, pink and blue. I have a black Gear Fit 2 in large. I would recommend large for most people. Samsung have added a feature called Together, which is one on one comparison with another person. S Health app is needed for this too. You can also connect a pair of bluetooth headphones and stream music from the Gear Fit 2.

Overall the Gear Fit 2 is really polished affair.

Now check out the video review, which reveals more information from the app and fitness tracker, watch faces, options and lot’s more.


Samsung have excelled themselves with the Gear Fit 2. It is ultra comfortable to wear and is easy to understand and operate. It also is accurate and works really well. Recommended.

  1. I’m using a very old Note 3 phone. But I do a fair bit of walking in the winter, for health reasons (recovering from surgery, now on chemo) lr cycling when it gets warmer. I find S health helpful monitoring distance, steps, temperature, weight & BP. I don’t always want to carry a phone. There are also times when you do want to track activity, but don’t have a phone on you. I also want to track sleep.

    My question is: Gear 2 watch, Gear fit 2, or the gear fit 2 watch?
    Mainly I’m concerned about the bulk of the smart watch, but also battery life.
    The Gear fit 2 seems minimal and fully featured, but does that make it too battery hungry, when I really just want basics?

    You’ve tried lots of these devices. What would you go for, in order to deliver thiskind of functionality. I’m NOT stuck on Samsung btw, Its just what I have now.



    PS. The Audio levels on this are really low. Is there any chance you could boost them. Ta
