Samsung India launched two new devices in the wearable segment. Gear Sport, a sleek and versatile smartwatch and Gear Fit2 Pro, a GPS sports band with smart features. Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro will go on sale in December and will be priced at Rs.22,990 and Rs.13,590 respectively. Samsung’s new Gear devices have been designed to help users make the most of their day.
With the launch of these two models along with the successful Gear S3, Samsung has augmented its wearable line up considerably. Understanding consumer behaviour that spans different levels of seriousness and activity, Samsung’s current lineup of wearables ensures availability of a complete fitness feature set for all basic users. This also scales up for advanced usage like GPS enabled run tracking or swim tracking along with 50m water resistance.
The devices have revolutionary form factors that offer an uncompromised array of features – Gear Sport is a stylish sports watch made out of premium steel with the acclaimed rotating bezel User Interface. Whereas, Gear Fit2 Pro is a state-of-the-art fitness band with an ergonomic curved super AMOLED display.
“At Samsung, we celebrate the everyday athlete. With the launch of Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro, we continue to build on our wearables heritage of offering diverse choices to enhance consumers’ unique lifestyles. We have introduced new smart capabilities, easy-to-use features and partnered with leading names in tech and fitness to help consumers go beyond fitness and live an active, balanced and fulfilling life,” said Aditya Babbar, General Manager, Samsung India.
Operating beyond conventional definitions of fitness, Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro support a diverse range of user lifestyle and activity levels. The devices mould around a user’s lifestyle with all 24 hours in the day accounted for – this includes activity, sleep and exercise being tracked in auto mode. Driving further specialisation in activity tracking is a selection of in house and third party apps. On Gear Sport, further connecting these moments are utilities and services that range from nutrition management to gameplay analytics for games like tennis to even calling an Uber right from the wrist.
