Samsung Galaxy Fit3 to launch in as little as a few months at an affordable price
It seems that Samsung is preparing to replace the Galaxy Fit2, a fitness tracker it presented in September 2020. According to new rumours from Samsung's Korean-language community forum, the Galaxy Fit3 is almost ready for release, perhaps as early as the second half of 2022. However, the ongoing semi-conductor shortage may force Samsung to postpone until first half of 2023, instead.
At any rate, the Galaxy Fit3 should launch at KRW 50,000 (~US$39), maintaining its predecessor's price. Presumably, this also means that the Galaxy Fit3 will launch in the US for US$59.99, assuming that the continued slump in the South Korean Won to US Dollar exchange rate does not result in a price uplift. Samsung did not increase the cost of the Galaxy S22 series compared to last year's Galaxy S21 trio, though.
Unfortunately, no details have leaked about what this next-generation fitness tracker will offer yet. The Galaxy Fit3 faces stiff competition from the Huawei Band 7 and Xiaomi Smart Band 7, the latter of which is also set for a global release. If the Galaxy Fit2 is anything to go by, the Galaxy Fit3 will have a small AMOLED display, long battery life and numerous fitness modes.
