Samsung's Gear Sport now has Modern Fitness Tracking

IFA 2017 IFA Berlin IFA 2017 expectations Samsung IFA 2017 Gear S4 LG IFA 2017

"Our Gear customers have been looking for more water-resistant products, and now with the Speedo partnership and the Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro, we are delivering the best experience to meet their demands" said Kiseon Kim, Vice President of Wearable Product Strategy Team at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. The device is smaller that the Samsung Gear S3 which was released previous year at this event.

Gear Fit2 Pro hits stores September 15 for $199.

Samsung doesn't have specific timing for the launch of this watch, nor a price point. All that's pretty exciting stuff even for a non-athlete such as myself - and to hear Samsung tell it, that's kind of the whole idea.

Samsung has partnered with leading galleries and museums such as the LUMAS, Saatchi Art, and Sedition to further enhance The Frame as an art-centric device within the home.

Bachelor in Paradise: Corinne Doesn't Blame DeMario, Can't Remember That Fateful Night
Corinne Olympios wants DeMario Jackson to know that she's "sorry" for what happened on the "Bachelor In Paradise " island. I don't think that it's anyone's fault, I think it's just really an unfortunate, annoying situation that had to go down.

The Gear Sport comes with 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display, with the Samsung Health application providing users with various workout-related tips. It has 5 ATM water resistance with swim tracking, improved heart-rate monitoring, auto activity detection, and support with a bunch of fitness apps, like UA Record, MyFitnessPal, MapMyRun, and Endomondo. One can use the smartwatch even under the water given that it is waterproof. We have a long history of embracing choice and innovation, and our wearables are created to help consumers of varying fitness levels meet their goals and aspirations. As IFA unfolds this week, expect to hear more about Samsung's latest wearables. It's got the same compatibility as the Gear Sport for Android and iOS devices and comes in black or red.

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.

Besides 5ATM water resistance and a slightly bigger curved display, one of the biggest improvements compared to Gear Fit2 include onboard Global Positioning System support. It offers a 1.2 inched AMOLED display.

Each earbud has its own 4GB of storage, 82mAh battery, and weighs 8g. The Gear Sport integrates seamlessly with Samsung smartphones, and it can also control IoT devices using the Samsung Connect solution. The Gear IconX also support standalone music playback from their 4GB of internal storage. UnderArmour, on the other hand, will focus on sporting apps that will run on the tablet, while a version of Spotify will be able to be run on the new bands, providing a way to take Spotify music offline if you go running.
