Among the lifestyle of many Filipinos today, fitness has become a common interest. Different types of workouts have been conveniently accessible nowadays–be it on a nearby gym, group Zumba fitness, or just simply turning to YouTube workouts. But keeping track and consistently being in-lined with your everyday fitness goals is challenging.

Samsung has launched the Samsung Gear Sport, Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro, and the Gear Icon X on November 28, 2017 at the Bondi&Bourke, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. These three new wearables all understand and will ease the challenge of fitness workouts consistency. Plus, these three are all water-resistant and passed US Military drop tests. 

Samsung Gear Sport

This is the new edition of the previous Samsung Gear. It sports a slim bezel with a 43mm diameter body that comes in Black and exclusive online Blue colors. Gear Sport can track the user’s exercise, calorie intake down to replying to notifications and playing music. It can also track your weight management capabilities, and a collection of fitness programs. What this small device boasts is that it can still track your swim capabilities in both fresh and salt water with a 5 ATM water resistance rating, GPS, continuous heart rate monitoring, automatic activity detection and even smart inactive alerts.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

Featuring a curved Super AMOLED face, the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro can give you the same viewing quality as you would get from a Samsung smartphone. By using the Fit2 Pro, you can have the option to custom design exercises and goals, and let the software do all the heavy lifting when it comes to tracking your progress. Spotify’s offline mode works for the Gear Fit2 Pro where you can store up to 500 tracks–making it a music player on its own.
