Samsung has today announced the availability of its new range of wearable devices — Samsung Gear Fit 2 and Gear IconX in India. Both the devices, Gear Fit 2 and IconX were launched around three months ago.
The devices will be available on Flipkart and are currently available for pre-order. The Samsung Gear IconX is priced at ₹13,490, while the Samsung Gear Fit 2 costs ₹13,990.
Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 is a smart wearable fitness tracking device. While the company already has several devices in this segment, the Fit 2 brings significant improvements to its previous iterations.
It comes with an upgraded 1.5-inch Super AMOLED display screen, which is much more curved, and provides comfortable wearing experience by conforming to your wrist.
As per the company, the Gear Fit 2 can sustain almost three to four days of typical usage on a single charge of battery and the large display lets you receive and respond to notifications, calls, texts through your wrist.
For the features list, you get a built-in heart-rate monitor, auto multi-sport and sleep tracking. And as Samsung puts it, the Fit 2 has removed the need for a start button. It comes with a GPS, so users can track their route even when not tethered to a smartphone. It has 4GB of built-in storage to store music. As per the company, the storage can hold up to 1,000 tracks.
The Samsung IconX is a set of wireless headphones. There are no wires at all — not even the ones usually found connecting the left and right buds together. It comes with separate radios and batteries for each earplug.
It also comes with a built-in heart-rate monitoring, along with distance and speed tracking. According to Samsung, the buds can play music for around an hour and a half. For charging, you just have to place both the buds in the wireless charging case.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Adarsh K Menon, VP – Electronics at Flipkart, said,
