It also functions as a counter for the wearer’s various physical activities. It can count each step and track the total number of steps made by the user, as well as his other movements. It can also tell the wearer of the number of calories burned from his physical activities.

In addition, it has the ability to monitor the heart rate. The new wearable from Samsung tracks the heart rate of the user, continuously throughout the day.

The new smartwatch allows the wearer to enjoy listening to his desired playlist while doing his workout. The device can store up to 500 songs and has access to Spotify. Connectivity is expanded with its Bluetooth connection.

The new Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro also functions to track distances and routes. Users no longer need to carry their heavy smartphone to determine distances and directions.

It also works as a mobile phone. Users can receive and send messages, as well as make and receive calls by connecting the device to his smartphone.

Meanwhile, aside from the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro, the Korean tech giant also launched its two other siblings, the Gear Sport, and the Gear IconX. All three variants come in stylish designs and colors.
