Samsung has given due consideration to the fitness aspect at MWC 2014. It has highlighted the heart rate sensor on Galaxy S5, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Samsung has gone one step further and announced a separate companion of Galaxy S5 – smart fitness band, the Gear fit, with better looks and fitness oriented approach.

The Galaxy Gear has an oblong display rather than a square one. Samsung has somehow managed to squeeze in Super AMOLED display which goes in the replaceable wristband. The display is 1.84 inch with 432 x 128 resolution, which is in fact quite good.

The wristband has 210 mAh battery and weighs 27 grams. The gear fit is also IP67 certified, which implies you don’t have to worry when you sweat profusely or want to take a swim. The Gear Fit does not have camera or microphone like its sibling Gear 2 or Galaxy Gear.

Gear Fit comes with a fitness coach which can monitor your fitness regime and send you notifications regarding several things like when to increase pace or when to slow down. The interface is simple to use and you can easily thumb your way through it.

Gear Fit is the best looking smartwatch that we have come across and the display is simply gorgeous. We are not sure, how much effective that will be as far as your fitness is concerned, but the device definitely scores in the looks department.
