Samsung Gear Fit is The Best Mobile Device at MWC 2014
Samsung Gear Fit returns home with The Best Mobile Device award it received on the last day of this year's Mobile World Congress.

During its Unpacked 2014 launch event, Samsung unveiled the Gear Fit, a product the company advertises as "the ultimate modern fitness solution" and offers an autonomy of 3 to 4 days on a single charge, as well as many attractive features such as Bluetooth 4.0, changeable straps, personalized interface and excellent dust and water resistance. This new wearable has a 1.84-inch curved super AMOLED display, weighs 0.95 ounces and measures 0.92X2.26X0.47 inches. 

Now, the Gear Fit received a very important award, namely The Best Mobile Device of this year's Mobile World Congress. According to JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics, the Gear Fit was "designed to help those consumers striving to live more fit and active lives without sacrificing their own personal style or their ability to stay connected on the go."

Next to the Gear Fit, Samsung also revealed the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo at the event in Barcelona, but the jury decided that the "fitness solution" is a better product than a smartwatch. Unfortunately, it seems all of them will become commercially available in April, but pricing and availability are still unknown at this time. For now, please check the video below for a quick recap of this year's MWC highlights.

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.
