The Gear Fit 2 Pro strap is water resistant up to 5 ATM. It also has a slightly smaller 1.5 inch screen the original Gear Fit 2, which enables it to curve slightly better around your wrist. The strap has been improved to a more traditional system that can’t pop off by accident.
You can now swim in the pool or the ocean, using the inbuilt the Speedo application developed for Gear Fit2 Pro. This tracks your statistics and presents them in easy-to-read summaries.
UA RECORD: View your activity, sleep and workout statistics in a dashboard and learn about your health and fitness levels.

MyFitnessPal: Eat smarter and achieve your health goals by monitoring the calories you consume and burn.
Endomondo: Join a global fitness enthusiast community when you achieve your racing goals with personal training plans.
I really like the auto detection. So whether you’re playing tennis, basketball or even dance moves, the Gear Fit 2 Pro will automatically detect and save the activity. It also measures your heart rate continuously throughout the day, indicating heart rate zones, to help you make better fitness decisions.
There are more than 3,000 apps and watch faces to choose from, including Spotify. These are available from the Galaxy App. However, I doubt you will ever need to download more than 3 extra apps.
The Samsung Gear Application and Samsung S Health are fantastic piece of software which have improved considerably over the years, as well as opening up to tons of third party fitness and health services.
Amazon at the time of writing were selling the Gear Fit 2 Pro lower than Samsung’s own website. Click HERE.
Highly recommended tracking device which is a breeze to use and has all the features you could possibly want in a fitness tracker.
