Yesterday we met that Samsung has finally launched its choice for payments by mobile with your Samsung Pay. An initiative so we go using our phones to make payments in shops or do not have or that introduce the data of the card to make purchases online. The curious thing about yesterday, apart from Samsung Pay day, is that Xiaomi also launched its my Band 2, a big bet as a bracelet of activity, and that clashes with what has now launched Samsung and has to do, and very much, with the wearables.
And is that Samsung has introduced two new wearables in today, the first is the second generation of Gear Fit called Gear Fit 2, while the latter is rather a headset wireless called Gear IconX. Two bets which are closely related to the physical activity and fitness, and that goes directly to a sector that is having a great success if we compare it with what little selling other kinds of wearables, the smartwatches or smart watches.
Samsung Gear 2 Fit
Gear Fit 2 is basically the successor of Gear Fit 1 which was launched in 2014. The second generation comes with an improved record of physical activity and even tighter design if we compare it with the original model.

The Gear Fit 2 specifications are a curved 1.5 inch touchscreen Super AMOLED with resolution of 216 x 432, a built-in GPS chip and is powered by a dual-CPU – core 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory and 200mAh battery. We can also speak of its IP68 certification for resistance to water, a vital element for a product of this type.
In the part of the sensors, which are responsible for taking all those data to well study our progress in physical activity, we can find an accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer and a heart rate monitor. Just like the first model, here Samsung is still playing it with its own software we know that as Tizen OS and that will synchronize with the Health app.
One of the particularities of the Gear Fit 2 is allowing the entrance of notifications when it is paired with a smartphone. This wearable for the fitness will reach stores on June 10, and it costs $ 179.99. It will come in two variations in size and various colors such as black, blue and pink.
Samsung Gear IconX
The Korean company has wanted to accompany the Gear Fit 2 with a rather striking wireless headset. And not only stays in its main function, but that it is also smart because it has its own mechanism for registration of physical activity and can be also used to monitor heart rate and even use it as a music player independent thanks to the internal memory of 4 GB which holds.
