The latest basic fitness tracker from Samsung is finally official and, according to its maker, "was launched in Korea, Italy, France and Russia, and will soon be released in select markets." This smart wearable is known as Charm by Samsung or simply Samsung Charm.

Advertised as looking "more like a piece of jewelry than an electronic device," Samsung Charm has a simple yet attractive design and tracks the number of steps taken, but also notifies its user of incoming text messages, phone calls, and social media updates. Obviously, the notifications only work when the accessory is connected to a smartphone. However, the fitness tracking and recording of data continues even when not connected to a handset.

Samsung also launched a free Charm app that can be used to customize notifications. Samsung Charm is available in black, gold, and rose quartz. Its battery offers up to 14 days of autonomy on a single charge. Unfortunately, it appears that the only handsets supported are those by Samsung that run Android 4.4 KitKat or later, as well as S Health 4.6 or later.

We will get back to Samsung Charm as soon as it reaches the US market, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
