In addition to offline Spotify support and an integrated GPS module, this upcoming wearable is rumored to offer 5 ATM water resistance. It is expected to show up on August 23, alongside the new Galaxy Note.

Samsung's upcoming wearable known as Gear Fit 2 Pro at this stage and also having a model number, namely SM-R365, has been in the rumor mill for a while. The last time we bumped into it, Samsung had a blank support page for this device online, and since it is still live, we can consider it an official confirmation of its existence. Now, we hear of a new leak that reveals a few specs and features as well.

The new bits of information about the Gear Fit 2 Pro come via VentureBeat's editor Evan Blass, who revealed the following highlights he spotted in a training deck shared with him by an inside source:

  • 5 ATM water resistance (tracking during swimming now possible)
  • music playback with support for offline Spotify tracks
  • GPS functionality
  • watch-style clasp
  • Android and iOS compatibility

There are no details about pricing and availability at this time, but we should hear all there is to know about the Gear Fit 2 Pro next week, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
