Samsung Gear Fit 2 activity tracker further showcased in colorful renders
When it rains, it pours. The old saying checks out as far as Samsung Galaxy Note 6 gossip goes, including recent word of an unexpected, unusually powerful “Lite” derivation, and it’s especially true for Gear Fit 2 rumors and visual leaks, which have been flooding the interwebs for the past ten days or so.
Pictured next to the innovative 3-in-1 Gear IconX activity tracker/stereo earpiece/digital music player the first couple of times, this long overdue follow-up to the 2014 Gear Fit wearable finally flies solo today to reveal a trio of snazzy paint jobs.
There’s no reasonable doubt circling the authenticity of these newly (ev) leaked renders, but unfortunately, we’re offered no clue as to the commercial launch or formal announcement timing of the Samsung Gear Fit 2.
The wearable piece could break cover at some point in August, during an Unpacked event dedicated primarily to the Note 6 phablet, but that’s also when we expect a Gear S3 smartwatch to go official. Ergo, let’s not rule out a (much) earlier debut for the black, pink (purple?), and blue wellness device tipped to accommodate a rich selection of sensors very few existing fitness bands can match.
You’ll of course be able to see stuff like step counts, distance covered, calories burned, goals and stats on a sharp 1.84-inch AMOLED screen, with standalone GPS support possibly on deck, a heart rate monitor, altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, and a number of others we’re yet to receive confirmation on.
All in a curvy, ergonomic, water-resistant body, with interchangeable straps, as always, but a more traditional watch-like one-piece look. We’re more and more intrigued by this thing, though Samsung should probably hurry and release it before the leaks start to get repetitive and boring.
