Samsung clearly has great ambitions for its first “basic” activity tracker in two years, taking the wraps off the Gear Fit 2 just last week, instantly putting it up for pre-orders stateside, and already crowing over the wearable’s wide availability today.
According to a new press release, the Samsung Gear Fit 2 is “now commercially available in select markets including the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Australia”, gradually heading soon “around the globe.”
Priced at $180 on American shores, the standalone GPS-packing sports band however is still listed on pre-order on the manufacturer’s local website. But you can get it today from Amazon.com at the same relatively low fare, in black, blue and pink paint jobs, as well as small and medium/large sizes.
Over on the old continent, the French branch of the third-party retailer only commits to 2-5 weeks shipping, charging a comparatively steep €200 ($225) for your ultimate Android-compatible personal trainer. Samsung should probably add the Gear Fit 2 to its every regional e-store before long, and so, we’re still rooting for a €180 European MSRP.
