Hands on: Samsung Gear Sport review

While the big players are moving on up into lớn the smartwatch game, the low-end market is being moved on by companies lượt thích Huawei, who are creating more compelling, affordable fitness trackers like the Huawei Bvà 2 Pro, while Xiaongươi continues khổng lồ dominate in sales.

Can the Fit2 Pro measure up in this brave new world? Read on and find out.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro: Design

*

The Fit2 already had a fairly sliông xã thiết kế, and the Fit2 Pro ain"t fixing what ain"t broken. There are fewer colour options, with just blachồng or blaông chồng và red rather than the three alternatives with the Fit Pro. The heart of the experience is still that beautiful 1.5-inch, 216 x 432 Super AMOLED display. It"s bright & filled with colour; as far as fitness trackers go, you won"t find better.

However, it"s variable when standing up khổng lồ sunlight. For instance, taking it for a run in the afternoon was absolutely fine, with all the information perfectly digestible, but when I was out early in the morning it was a lot more difficult to lớn see what the screen was showing me.

The solution here is outdoor mode, which will boost the brightness up to 11 (seriously, that"s the maximum setting), which lasts for five minutes before reverting baông xã, so it doesn"t suchồng too much battery power.

You"ll be swiping that screen side-to-side a lot to lớn get through the various modes. The main home screen can be customized with all sorts of faces, & you can tải về more via Galaxy Apps. Our favourite was actually the default, which cleanly gives you a look at all the big metrics of the day, from heart rate to lớn steps khổng lồ calories.

Swiping lớn the left will get you to your individual modes, from running khổng lồ cycling khổng lồ swimming. There"s enough space for eight screens, though it defaults lớn five. You can add weather, coffee and water trackers by clicking a big old plus button at the end. Swiping to lớn the left will take you to the notifications pane, where you"ll be able to lớn see all your incoming alerts.

There are two buttons on the right side of the device. The top button acts like a back button, taking you to lớn the previous thực đơn or trang chủ screen. The bottom button takes you directly khổng lồ the thực đơn, where you can get into settings and launch apps not in your vertical – và swipeable – carousel.

On the back of the device you have some latches where you take off your straps and a heart rate sensor. The whole package is waterproof lớn 5ATM and is durable. Trust us, we accidentally dropped it on concrete & it came away with nary a scratch.

Our favourite part of the Gear Fit2 Pro is that it doesn"t feel lượt thích it"s clinging lớn your wrist. Devices with heart rate sensors have sầu to really hug your wrist so they can get a good heart rate reading. Often, when wearing the Fitbit Charge 2, you can feel the band"s tight grip after long periods of use, and we just wanted khổng lồ rip it off và let that arm không tính tiền. With the Gear Fit2 Pro, however, we found the exact opposite. We slept with it with no problems và never once wanted lớn rip it off và give the wrist some air.

Basically, if you"ve sầu seen the Fit2, you"ve seen the Fit2 Pro. Samsung still understands that the display is the star of the show though, and that"s what steals the spotlight anytime someone looks at it. We were surprised that a couple of people saw it and instantly commented on how sleek it was. We don"t blame them, though, it"s a pretty impressive sầu screen.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro: Features

Like the Fit2, the Pro also has the Galaxy App store to lớn tải về apps. This includes the entire Under Armour suite, including MapMyRun và Endomondo. This, alongside running on Samsung"s Tizen, makes the Fit2 Pro feel a little more smartwatch than fitness tracker – but just a little. It"s more Fitbit Ionic than Apple Watch or Android Wear, but it"s still a welcome treat that gives it a leg up on the competition.

There"s also now Spotify offline playback, so if you have a Spotify tài khoản you can sync over albums và playlists and listen lớn music on your run (as long as you"ve got a công nghệ Bluetooth không dây headset). This is supposed khổng lồ be preinstalled, but it isn"t really as you have sầu to lớn install the Spotify ứng dụng in Galaxy Apps on your phone. There"s 4GB of space for you to lớn store your music & you can also transfer your music over with Gear Music Manager. This works a little differently depending on your phone. If you"ve got an Android phone, you simply use the app to lớn transfer over music. If you have sầu an iPhone, however, you have khổng lồ use a website browser on your computer.

You have sầu khổng lồ make sure your Pro & computer are on the same Wi-Fi network, then you initiate the process on your Pro, which will give you an IP. address to lớn type into lớn your browser. Once you"re there, you can manage your tracks & transfer them over. It"s very convoluted, and makes us not want to khuyễn mãi giảm giá with it at all. If you"ve got an iPhone, Spotify might be a better option – và that"s a big thing Samsung is able khổng lồ laud over its rivals right now.

Speaking of, the other big feature with the Gear Fit2 Pro is iOS compatibility. In using the Pro with an iPhone, we found a mostly seamless experience. It was a bit of a mess getting the Fit2 Pro to connect khổng lồ the iPhone during the thiết đặt process, but after a couple of forced restarts we got there. The music process, described up above sầu, was also a pain. What was worse though was the syncing process, which was just too often a hassle on iPhone. On Android our experience was much better, so we hope Samsung can make life a bit easier for iOS users in future.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro: Fitness và activity tracking

The story of the Gear Fit2 Pro"s sports tracking abilities is one of entrenchment. Samsung is doubling down lớn give you more options và, hopefully, make it even easier to work out how và when you want.

The two big examples of this are improved waterproof rating and pre-installed apps via Galaxy App integration. The Gear Fit2 held an IP68 water resistant rating, which makes it good for rowing or running & cycling out in the rain, but not enough for swimming. The Pro holds 5ATM waterproofing, which means you can rest easy & go for a swyên without worrying that you"ll need to lớn put your tracker in rice later on.

Also making it easier for swimming is a new water lock mode. You access it by swiping down to bring up the settings pane, & then clicking water loông chồng. This pretty much locks the screen so that it doesn"t confuse water drops for finger touches. Samsung has tied up Speebởi vì On lớn trachồng swimming, just like on the Gear Sport. This allows you khổng lồ get metrics like distance, strokes, lap time và that ever-present favourite SWOLF to lớn measure swimming efficiency.

Samsung wants khổng lồ make getting into lớn a workout as easy as possible, which is evidenced by how well the Gear Fit2 Pro automatically tracks workouts. If you"re cycling, it"ll recognise that you"re cycling; if you"re walking it can tell. Generally we"ve sầu found the auto detection to lớn be very accurate.

That"s sadly more than we can say for some of the other workout features. Heart rate is still iffy on the Fit2 Pro, and it"s the same problem we see time và time again. When running, during steady increases và decreases of intensity it managed to keep cthua when put against the Polar H7 chest strap, but if we abruptly piông chồng up the pace, or start pushing up a hill, getting that heart rate up inkhổng lồ the 175-180 bracket, we found the Fit2 Pro dragged behind, sometimes by as much as 10bpm. Same for when we were coming baông chồng down again. In fact in once instance it was reading an alarming 199bpm, while the Wahoo Tickr had us at 177bpm. This was obviously way too high, but it didn"t happen again, so we"ll put it down to lớn a glitch.

Even so, the sluggish optical readings are too consistent khổng lồ ignore. For casual runners the Fit2 Pro will probably be enough, but interval training is off the menu here – it just won"t keep up. The GPS is nice & accurate though, & connects impressively fast. With the auto-tracking you don"t even need to lớn think about it, as Samsung just automatically finds a lochồng in the background.
