The two new Samsung wearables that we heard about not so long ago are finally official. Dubbed Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX, they are both aiming active people in need of accurate tracking and some music to go with their workout routines without having to carry their smartphone around as well.

Samsung Gear Fit2 has been designed for comfortable everyday use and features an embedded GPS, as well as a heart rate monitor, a Super AMOLED curved touchscreen display, being powered by a dual-core processor and packing 512 GB RAM and 4 GB internal storage space as well. It runs Tizen and offers Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, connecting to devices that run at least Android 4.4 KitKat and have 1.5 GB RAM. It has been IP68 certified and supports a fair amount of audio formats, including WAV, AAC, M4A, OGG, and WMA.

Samsung Gear IconX is a set of "truly cord-free earbuds" that can store up to 1,000 MP3 files and can track fitness data as well. It requires at least an Android 4.4 KitKat device with 1.5 GB RAM as well, has capacitive touch controls, and features Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.

Samsung Gear Fit2 is expected to hit the US market on June 10th for $180 USD, while the Gear IconX is scheduled to arrive in Q3, priced at $199 USD.

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.
