The Gear Fit2 Pro will feature a 200mAh capacity battery that should typically get you 3-4 days of use out of it. However, when using it for a long run expect the battery life to last around 6 -8 hours which all the apps and GPS running or even less with Spotify playing in the background

You will also get an accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensors, plus there’s GPS and GLONASS support to accurately map your runs and rides. It will also have a range of sports profiles and have continuous heart rate monitoring.


Samsung Gear Fit2 release date and price

I suspect that the Gear Fit2 Pro will either be unveiled at Samsung’s Unpacked event or it could feature at the IFA Berlin.  I suspect the pricing will be around $199.99 dollars and around 1£60 GBP in the UK.

Edit – according to Evan Blass and this picture the price is spot on at $199.99

I don’t think this wearable is that ground breaking and it adds another device to an already crowded fitness tech and wearable market. To add to this with the likes of Fitbit rumored to be launching the smartwatch later this year and Garmin launching the Vivosmart 3 then the Gear Fit2 pro could quickly forget about.
