    FINALLY! A truly great, affordable fitness watch that ticks all the marks., June 10, 2016

    When news broke about the Samsung Gear Fit 2 and I’d devoured all the feature details, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one. I’d initially ordered from Amazon, but the estimated delivery date was three days from now, and that was if I paid extra for one day shipping. A certain big box store, who’s initials start with BB, promised release day delivery with free shipping. Yeah, I know…bad me.

    Anyway, my initial impressions are extremely favorable, but I will update over time to reflect if this works as advertised. In the meantime, what I CAN speak to is:

    – VASTLY more comfortable than the original Fit.
    – Sharp, bright, colorful screen.
    – excellent touch response and accuracy, even with big fingers like mine.
    – EASY, flawless set up, which is saying a lot as I’m running this on a Google phone with the beta version of Android N.
    – Two HUGE pluses: Phone free music playing over Bluetooth headphones, and built in GPS.
    – Flawless build quality.
    – Exceptionally reasonable price!

    Overall, I get the feeling that Samsung is going all out with the Fit 2, and seeks to establish the brand as the de facto standard for fitness wearables, and simply not building on the original Fit (with the obvious exception in design).

    *UPDATE* 6/12/16
    I had to drop a star, simply because of some occasional errant readings on the heart rate monitor, as this IS a fitness device first and foremost, and that’s kind of important. I am impressed with the battery life, however, which is somewhere between a Pebble Time and the Fitbit Blaze. You can easily go four days between charges, and that’s with GPS active. I REALLY like the music feature, because you can transfer MP3s directly to the Fit 2, connect a pair of Bluetooth headphones, and listen to music while out and about. I also like that you can add Water Intake, Caffiene Intake, and other tracking options, which gives you additional, dedicated screens for each. I also like being reminded if I’m inactive for too long. The notifications are flawless, whereas with the Blaze, I could count on missing a few, even when I had the phone on me. I can easily see the Gear Fit 2 setting the standard in fitness wearables, that is if a firmware update is able to deliver a consistent, reliable heart rate reading.

    UPDATE: 10/25/2016
    The heart rate sensor is much more accurate now (tested against a chest heart rate monitor). Still wearing it daily, and the support (watch faces, apps, etc.) is fantastic.

    but I am so glad I took a chance and bought it, June 26, 2016

    By Jeff bidwell

    I am not one to review items. However, after reading through all the reviews especially the negative ones I felt compelled to share my experience. The negative reviews almost discouraged me from buying this item, but I am so glad I took a chance and bought it. I was initially concerned about it falling off as some posters claimed happened. If you simply put the band through the loop, like a belt, then it stays on. I went on two 5 mile runs and had no problem with it falling off. I was also concerned about the accuracy of GPS, as I am an avid runner. To test its accuracy I wore the Gear fit 2 on one arm, and my Garmin watch on the other, and the data matched exactly every time I tested it. I really love the features of this device, and was surprised at how comfortable it was.

    The only negatives I could find were that it does not accurately count flights of stairs, nor does it accurately count crunches either. In addition at times the heart rate is somewhat inaccurate.

    However, I think it is a great buy for the price and I like it a lot. I am not sure why some people were giving it such bad reviews. I am glad I ignored negative reviews and gave it a chance. Well done, Samsung.

    Read this if you’re trying to decide between a Gear Fit 2 and Fitbit Charge 2!, March 3, 2017

    By V La (sunny California 🙂 –

    This review is from: Samsung Gear Fit2 Smartwatch Large, Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    After a ton of research about Fitbit products, I purchased the Fitbit Charge 2 as an upgrade to my Fitbit One. I had to return/exchange the Charge 2 as the step count was wildly inaccurate. Fitbit advised that this was a defect and provided a new device promptly. However, the new device had the exact same issue. Both Charge 2’s have been returned.
    I then broadened my research beyond Fitbit products and was stunned to learn at how much more I could get for my money if I opened my mind beyond the popular Fitbit product line. I ended up purchasing a Samsung Gear Fit 2 and am very happy I did.

    I’ve used the Charge 2 and Gear Fit 2 each for at least a month, and here’s my take on how they compare –

    *Accuracy:
    This is the main deciding factor for me. The Charge 2 was wildly inaccurate (keep in mind, I received 2 devices from Fitbit as noted above – both with the same issue). It consistently missed over 1,500 steps a day and counted steps while I slept somehow. My Fitbit One didn’t have this issue. Fitbit customer support suggested I place the Charge 2 in my pocket for improved accuracy, which completely negated the purpose of upgrading from the One to the Charge 2.
    The Gear Fit 2 is pretty spot on. I say ‘pretty’ because the only time it’s slightly off is when I walk in place, and that’s OK with me because I’m cheating anyway… It also accurately counts repetitions when using the different Exercise features (lunges, crunches, squats), which is really cool and helpful.

    *Features/Functionality:
    The Gear Fit 2 is the clear winner here. The biggest reason is that if you’re looking to keep track of how you’re doing with your fitness goals, even if you’re just casually trying to improve your fitness level, it really makes it easy by improving awareness. For example, when viewing any item such as floors or steps, not only do you see today’s activity, but you also see how you did for the rest of the week at a glance. Tapping on those screens displays the detail by day. You can get more detail on the exercise done (map, etc) if you want to from these screens as well. There’s really not much of a need to use the app with the Gear Fit 2.
    The Charge 2 will display this detail within the app only, as far as I know.
    I tried the guided breathing feature on the Charge 2 a few times and didn’t really find any value in it. To each their own.
    The Gear Fit 2 has built in GPS (no phone required!), so once you’re done with your run/walk/hike, you can view your route, distance, average MPH and much more, right on your wrist.
    MyFitnessPal works really well with the Gear Fit 2 so you can quick add foods directly from your wrist and log water intake with a couple of taps.
    With the Gear Fit 2, I can play music from my phone or store music directly on the device. I can view/dismiss Alarms directly from the screen. I love the ability to set a button to quick launch a feature. I use it to quick launch an Exercise, so all I have to do is press the button, and I’m off! On the Charge 2, you’d have to tap thru the screens, then press/hold to launch the Exercise – this was kind of a PITA for me and I usually forgot to do it before I set off on my adventure.
    One thing that I really love, which may not be a big deal to many other folks, is the ability to quickly set the Gear Fit 2 to ‘do not disturb’ mode. This means that the all alerts are muted and device won’t wake when you move your wrist. It’s great to use when sleeping so you don’t light up the room at night!

    *Comfort:
    The Gear Fit 2 blows the Charge 2 away here. You can tell by the photo that the Charge 2 doesn’t sit flush to the wrist area, largely due to the lumpy bottom and straight face. This made me abundantly aware that I had something on my wrist every second of every day that I wore it. It was downright painful to wear while sleeping if I put any pressure on that wrist (if I slept on that side). When I took the Charge 2 off to charge it or shower, I had a visible indentation mark on my wrist from it (and I wasn’t wearing it too tight).
    The Gear Fit 2 has a curved display with a flush bottom that I forgot I was wearing once the novelty of playing with it wore off. It’s comfortable to wear while sleeping and while active.

    *Customization: It’s kind of a split here, but I’d have to say that overall, the Gear Fit 2 wins.
    The Charge 2 has the advantage over the Gear Fit 2 in the band category since there are so many different bands to choose from. I’m really not sure why there aren’t more available for the Gear Fit 2, but I will say that I’m happy with the options that I’ve found. There’s a great magnetic Milanese one out there that I love. And, for anyone else who’s lost some thumbnails – it’s easier to remove the original Gear Fit 2 band if you bend it backwards a little bit:)
    The Gear Fit 2 wins over the Charge 2 with respect to the customization features…
