In this current state, it’s very tough to recommend the Galaxy Gear Fit. We love the big, bright screen, Samsung’s RTOS UI works well on the display, the heart rate integration for exercise activities is interesting and smartphone functionality works as advertised.
Unfortunately, the hardware and software are riddled with issues. We have to question the heart rate sensor tracking accuracy and the secureness of the strap doesn’t fill us with much confidence that it won’t come off again. The battery life simply isn’t good enough and the S Health app is... Full review
The Gear Fit offers a slim design, beautiful display and a fluid interface that's quick and easy to navigate. As its name suggests, it's a device focused on fitness, but here it's Samsung's way or the highway: the Gear Fit is only compatible with some Samsung devices, utilising Samsung's S Health rather than any other system you may already use. That will attract some and alienate plenty of others.
We see the Gear Fit as a successful enough compromise between a smartwatch - for alerts to appear on your wrist - in a smaller, more compact build, coupled with activity tracking eleme... Full review
Well, one thing which really colours my viewpoint is the price. I’ve seen it go for as low as £150 in a few places online, but Samsung’s RRP of £199 appears to be more common across the web and that’s quite steep for what you actually get here.
If you’re buying a Samsung Galaxy S5 as part of a retailer bundle or a network tariff deal and the seller in question is throwing a Gear Fit into it, it might be worth picking up. Buying it as a separate accessory at full price, however, seems a bit much.
If you’re really into your fitne... Full review
Samsung deserves credit for the Gear Fit’s stunning design. Ultimately, it’s a gadget that tries to do too much, and it doesn’t end up doing anything very well.
It’s not nearly strong enough as a fitness gadget, especially when its more capable competitors are well under the Fit’s $200 price (Fitbit’s premium fitness gadgets start at $100, while Jawbone’s Up24 is $150). And while it’s a decent smartwatch, you’re likely better off snagging a Pebble or waiting until something better comes along.
On the bright side, al... Full review
The Samsung Gear Fit offers a simplified fitness tracker/smartwatch experience that manages to under-deliver without over-promising. By attempting to cram smartwatch functionality into a basic fitness tracker, and, as a result, neither aspect flourishes. In a rare instance for Samsung these days, design is actually the one area where the Gear Fit gets things right with a nice (if at times hampered by its dimensions) curved AMOLED display and solid build.
For its price of $199, Samsung gives few compelling reasons to choose their device over cheaper alternatives from FitBit, Jawbo... Full review
I'll give Samsung credit where it's due: It's one of the first companies to blend a fitness tracker with a smartwatch, and there is indeed a market for such a device. In terms of hardware, the company did a fantastic job crafting a curved device that feels comfortable and looks good, to boot. Samsung also included a heart rate monitor, a beautiful display and interchangeable bands -- all good things.
Where Samsung failed is in the software. The user interface is confusing; the display is awkward to read; the heart rate monitor and pedometer aren't accurate; and the sleep tracker... Full review
