The fitness tracker with standalone music player capabilities will go on sale next week, while the cord-free earbuds are expected to hit the market in Q3 2016.

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.

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.
