Portable, stylish, and the ultimate high-tech fitness device

For fitness band enthusiasts, a health band with a touch screen is big news. Many of the fitness bands on the market right now rely on synching to check your progress and small buttons to interact, but the Samsung Gear Fit lets you see your progress right on your wrist. Plus, because the screen is created from the same Super AMOLED touchscreen you’ll find on smartphone and tablets, it will be bright, brilliant, and easy to interact with.

The Samsung Gear Fit  lets you keep your phone in your pocket and stay in touch with the world right on your wrist. If you get a text mid-workout or have a call coming in, you can answer or reject it on your Samsung Gear Fit.

One of the coolest features of the Samsung Gear Fit is the built-in heart rate sensor. It shows you how your body is responding to your workout and tells you to either kick it up or take it down a notch. On a health band, this type of interaction can really make a difference to your weight loss and improved health.

The Samsung Gear Fit is stylish on it’s own, and comes in Black, Grey, and Orange, but you can take it one step further and change out the straps to suit your mood. A bigger bonus? The straps are hypoallergenic, so if you’ve had a problem due to an allergy and couldn’t wear a health band before, the Samsung Gear Fit will be your best choice.

The Samsung Gear Fit works with 20 Samsung Galaxy devices, but it really shines when you pair it with the Samsung Galaxy S5. SHealth tracks your fitness and health data right on your smartphone, and you can download an app called ‘Coach’ to whip you into shape.
