Samsung has today revealed three new devices that have just been added to its impressive range of wearables: the Gear Sport – a fitness-focused smartwatch, the Gear Fit 2 Pro – an upgraded GPS-based sport band, and the Gear IconX – a second generation of Samsung’s cord-free earbuds. All three devices were revealed today at the IFA Conference in Berlin.
Samsung say its new Gear devices were designed to help consumers get the most out of their day, and help them live a healthy and well-balanced life. The new Gear device were made to assist with a range of activities – from robust fitness tracking to nutrition and sleep monitoring, as well as motivational coaching as a lifestyle companion
DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics said: “At Samsung, we celebrate the everyday athlete – whether you’re going for a light jog, or training for your next triathlon. We have a long history of embracing choice and innovation, and our wearables are designed to help consumers of varying fitness levels meet their goals and aspirations. We want to help remove the stigma that fit can only mean one thing and that fitness trackers are complex and for only the most intense of workouts. Our new Samsung Gear wearables help consumers ‘go beyond fitness’ and enjoy an active, balanced and fulfilled life in a smart and seamless way.”
