Prior leaks had indicated that Samsung had a new version of the Galaxy Fit wearable with Bluetooth 5.1 in the works. Now, this new device in on sale in India. It has a 1.1-inch color AMOLED display, can track a user's heart-rate and stress levels, and has a battery life rated for up to 21 days between charges.

Samsung's second-gen fitness tracker has now been launched in a number of markets that include the US and India. It has a 1.1-inch "3D Glass"-covered display and a silicon band with a grooved texture for increased wearer comfort throughout the day.

This Galaxy Fit2 (or Samsung SM-R220) can detect more than 6 different types of workout automatically, thus potentially saving the user the bother of starting one on-screen prior to working out. It can also store and display data for these and other session types. This may include duration, heart-rate, progress and calories burned. It also offers a 2020-appropriate regular hand-washing reminder.

The Galaxy Fit2 is rated for up to 3 weeks of battery life, and for IP68 ingress protection. It can also supply health-related metrics such as a "Sleep Quality Score" and stress levels over time. This new fitness tracker is now listed on Samsung's US site with Black or Scarlet bands for US$59.99.

It is also now on Amazon.in for a recommended price of INR 4199 (~$57) - however, it is reduced to INR 3999 (~$55) for a limited time (correct at time of writing).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
