I got the GearFit together with the Samsung Galaxy S5 a while and I’ve been wonderfully impressed. Check out how The Samsung GearFit has been a wonderful addition to enhancing/entertaining my lifestyle
Even though you’ve seen my reasons to love the Samsung Gearfit. But here are some additional points on why it’s an interesting fitness smartwatch tracker.
I’ve tried other fit trackers before and here’s the thing. In order to keep track of my steps in a day, it means i would need to wear the fitness device the whole time. It’s a good thing that the Gearfit has a sleek and sophisticated finish, which is perfect for any occasion. Its lightweight and with an adjustable strap makes it suitable from slender wrists (like mine :P) to slightly manlier ones.
Strap is Changeable
Did i mention you can also CHANGE the strap! Yeap, just pop the Gearfit out of the strap, change it or give it a good wash after a sweaty session indoors or outdoors.
I love how you can adjust the brightness of the screen of the Gearfit. Also I think it’s super cool, that it has the movement detection which will wake up the screen. It’ll be black at first and the screen will light up only if you have moved your wrist. Very handy and such a great conversation starter.. like the video above
I would’ve personally liked it if the Gearfit could track my circuit and weight training. But at the moment it can only track exercises such as running, walking, cycling , hiking. I’m sure they would have an upgrade on that soon. It will track your heart rate in real time, although its sensitivity sometimes meant it fluctuated a little at times. As a motivator the Gear Fit does well too. We were constantly checking how many steps we had done and the buzz on our wrist when we had achieved our daily goal gave us an awesome feeling. Everytime i touch the 5000 steps mark followed by 10000 it’s a sense of satisfaction!
It can also track your sleeping! Cool feature although sometimes i forget to turn it on.
The day i found out you could have notifications for whatsapp on the Gearfit I went partially ballistic. You can set the notifications for the app you want, such as twitter, facebook and even games. You will be able to find this under the Gear Manager settings.
First time I used the Gearfit was on my trip to Phuket. It lasted me for 4 days which was the duration of my trip. I had the bluetooth on and the brightness was set to minimal. But i’ve found that you can make it last even longer. Just set the brightness to super minimal and turn off the wake up ability. You can always use the button at the side to check your time. Make sure bluetooth is off. This can apparently last for about a week!
Something definitely worthwhile to consider if you are looking for a stylish yet functional fitness device!
