Not everyone cares about high-end activity-tracking features on a lot of smartwatches or expensive fitness bands. Some really won’t worry about blood oxyren levels, ECG measurements, or even built-in GPS. If you want simple daily activity tracking, you want a simple daily-use wearable, & that’s where the Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 comes in.

This $60 fitness tracker covers all the basics, and backs it up with a quoted 15 days of battery life, putting it firmly in the wear-and-forget category. I’ve sầu been wearing it for more than a week now, & I did almost forget it on my wrist, which is a good thing. This is what it’s lượt thích.

Design

The Galaxy Fit 2’s simpliđô thị starts with the kiến thiết, but it holds both good and bad surprises. The first surprise is just how bright the 1.1-inch color AMOLED screen is. I could easily leave it on the midmàn chơi setting without sacrificing daylight viewing, meaning it has less of an impact on battery life. The use of a color screen makes the Galaxy Fit 2 far more attractive, & more interesting to lớn look at, than the boring monochrome LCDs found on simple Fitbits.

Choose the red bvà like my review sample and it makes a seriously sporty statement, và while the bvà is comfortable once it’s on, the clasp is very annoying. Samsung has made the whole affair more complicated than it needs to lớn be, and it’s quite hard khổng lồ find, and repeat, exactly the right fit. I often wear the b& loosely when the heart rate sensor’s accuracy isn’t so important, then tighten it up when tracking exercise, & the Fit 2’s strap made this usually simple procedure rather infuriating. Otherwise, it’s secure và doesn’t get sweaty.

It’s controlled using the touchscreen and a touch-sensitive sầu button under it. It’s quite easy lớn miss the button at first, as the thin outline giving you a hint about where khổng lồ press disappears in many lighting conditions. The operating system is responsive sầu and logically laid out, and you use swipes and taps lớn navigate through the options. I didn’t experience any problems using it.

The thiết kế, the screen’s appeal, and the software make the Galaxy Fit easy khổng lồ live with once you’ve stopped swearing at the stupid bvà.

Activity tracking

Continuing on the simple theme, the Galaxy Fit has a heart rate sensor, an accelerometer, & a gyroscope, but no ability lớn measure blood oxygene, take an ECG, links up with GPS, or even add elevation data using an altimeter. The altimeter is the only sensor that’s really missed, as ECG & blood oxyren readings are highly specialized. If you want GPS for accurate run tracking, there are plenty of alternatives available.

Instead, the Galaxy Fit 2 watches over your workouts, tracks steps, và monitors your sleep if you wear it overnight. A small selection of workouts lớn traông xã are preloaded on the Fit, but more can be added in if the basic options aren’t enough. I had lớn add yoga & stationary biking, for example. The Galaxy Fit 2 can be worn in the pool lớn traông xã swims, where it counts strokes và measures distance, plus returns swim efficiency SWOLF data after you’ve finished.

Swipe lớn the left on the screen & you get shown steps, heart rate, distance, & sleep data. There are reminders to lớn get up & move around, & a reminder khổng lồ wash your hands too. However, this is not automatic lượt thích the Apple Watch’s feature, & instead just suggests you should wash your hands after a mix interval. The Fit 2 also monitors găng tay levels, but says the feature is for wellness rather than medical use, and I found it put me on the higher end of the scale far more often than other wearables I’ve used recently, including the Honor Watch ES & the Oppo Watch.
