Written by  Sep 21, 2017

Design and first impressions

Samsung’s Gear Fit lineup is tried and tested. The dinky 128 x 432 Super AMOLED touchscreen is bright, with punchy colours you can see in daylight, and the battery life is good for four days usage.

There are all sorts of customisable watch faces to cater to your fitness needs. You can ask it to highlight your calorie consumption during the day, total steps or even your current elevation. Perfect for an at-a-glance metric of your choosing.

Other than that, its features are pretty much what we expect of a fitness wearable nowadays. You’ll find the usual suite of goodies; including built-in GPS, heart-rate monitoring and 5 ATM1 water resistance.
