Samsung's Gear Sport now has Modern Fitness Tracking

Along with Gear Sport and Gear Fit 2 Pro fitness wearables, Samsung also launched the Gear IconX (2018) wireless earbuds at the IFA 2017. The Gear Sport smartwatch has 768MB RAM, while its fitness tracker sibling Fit2 Pro comes with a 512MB chip. Unlike the Gear S3 and the Gear Sport, two size bands aren't included so you'll need to choose accordingly when you buy. Gone are the days of rugged devices looking bulky and chunky (well, mostly) without offering high-end features.

Like the regular S3 Classic, there's no LTE, with Samsung saying about 50% of its USA customers want LTE.

Gear Fit2 Pro will begin shipping in the United States starting September 15 at a retail price of $199 (roughly Rs. 13,800).

Samsung have not said how it handles salt water. Among other things, the Gear Sport is smaller than the S3, with a 42.9mm face, versus 46mm.

Samsung also confirmed that the Gear IconX 2018 are the newest devices to support Bixby integration. It has a 1.5-inch curved AMOLED display with a 216×430 resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It's also enabled the Gear Sport for water adventures, with a 5 ATM rating of 50 meters (165 feet).

Samsung also promoted premium Frame TVs during the event.

Hamilton also hailed Schumacher in a subsequent tweet, in which he wrote: "I'm honoured to have raced with you. Asked by Sky F1's David Croft if he feared unreliability could hamper his title bid, Hamilton said: "I don't".

Samsung has been on the forefront of the modern smartwatch wave, but its already long line of Gear smartwatches hasn't exactly been among many a user's wish list items. A new Speedo app tracks swimming, while an improved Under Armour app tracks calorie intake and adds on-watch input tools.

Samsung has partnered with various companies for the new device, including UnderArmor and Spotify, the latter allowing you to download and enjoy music on the Gear Fit2 Pro even when you don't have your phone with you.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro official page was published hours before the Note8 unpacking, most probably by accident. All of them are the natural evolution of Samsung's wearable lineup, now revolving around a common theme of fitness.

It's all personalised so your recommendations are more likely to keep you on track towards your goals, motivated to carry on, and focusing on the best ways for you to be at your personal best. It comes in Black and Blue colors.

Samsung's Gear Sport runs on the Tizen operating system and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The Sport is, in part, a chance to appeal to a wider range of wrists, and it's also an attempt for Samsung to reconfirm its commitment to health wearables. From 1.5 hours in the original to 5 hours of streaming playback in the successor, the Gear IconX has 4 GB of internal storage for downloaded playlists.

At the same time, it is still a smartwatch and you get the same expected smartwatch features.
