While Samsung’s fashionable Gear Fit smart watch/fitness accessory saw plenty of action in our recent exercise adventure with S Health, our coverage of the device itself has been limited to just an initial hands-on and an unboxing as Editor-in-Chief Anton D. Nagy waits for his Galaxy S5 review unit to complete the long trek to Romania (our full Galaxy S5 review can be found here).
On the bright side, Samsung was good enough to provide us a Gear Fit for review use here in the States as well. The tricky part: our window with that device was quite short, just about two days in all. That’s not enough time for a review, but it is enough for a preview. And since I’m fairly certain that Anton’s position on the Gear Fit will be the opposite of mine, I’ve decided to label this a “pre-buttal.” Like our review rebuttal series, it’s a response to our official review – even though in this case, the review hasn’t yet landed. Unconventional thinking for an unconventional device.
Enjoy our brief take on a few days spent with the Samsung Gear Fit, and let us know in the comments whether this is the kind of wearable that gets your steam engine reciprocating!
