Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the new Galaxy Fit 2 fitness tracker in the UK. It has gone on pre-order with the shipping date of October 1st for the price of £49. At the starting of this month, we have a glance at the features of the smart band. Somehow, all these features are true and there is nothing new to offer. You will get a 1.1-inch AMOLED screen with 126×294 PPI pixel density and it weighs 21g in size. It comes with less thickness compared to the previous Galaxy Fit & Fit e bands. You will get 5 automatic workout modes in running, walking, dynamic workout, elliptical trainer, and raw machine.
In the corona pandemic, all the smartwatches & fitness trackers are taking care of the user’s hygiene. The handwashing function on the Galaxy Fit 2 will help you to wash your hands. It reminds you on time to time, and also there is a countdown like 20 seconds to wash your hands. Where many trackers in 2020 offer a blood oxygen level, Samsung missed this opportunity, even when it has become the part of Galaxy Watch 3. If the more affordable Amazfit Band 5 and the main rival Fitbit Charge 4 can offer the SpO2, then Samsung should have come with this function.
In the Sleep, you can measure the REM cycle, deep sleep, but again forget the day naps. The notifications, music controller, weather, reminder, and a quick reply has added to the band. There is no word on a voice assistant, but with the quick reply, you can manage to reply to the messages. It pre-loaded with 70 different watch faces in the library, and you can download them from the Galaxy Wearable app.
You can track heart rate continuously using an optical heart rate sensor, and also it is built with a gyro sensor and accelerometer. It comes with 2MB RAM and the 32MB of storage to perform the tasks and to save the data like watch faces and fitness results. Lastly, the 159mAh battery runs up to 15 days in normal mode, and in the saving mode it extends up to 21 days. In the connectivity, it offers Bluetooth 5.1 version, and you can pair the band with Android & iOS platforms using the Galaxy Wearable app.
