Samsung releases two new wearables


Samsung wants you to be fit!

The Korean company just announced two new devices, one is a smartwatch, the other one is a bluetooth headset. The Gear Fit 2 is a fitness band, with a 1.5" Amoled screen, a dual core SoC, 512MB of RAM with 4GB on board memory, and a 200mAH battery. It's compatible with Kitkat and up, and runs Samsung's Tizen OS. As it is a fitness device, it's water resistant (IP68). Here's a video about the device in action:

The other device is the Gear IconX, a bluetooth concept similar to the Motorola Hint and VerveOnes (which launched this week). It has 3 different sizes of eartips and wingtips, according to Samsung's press release. It tracks your fitness data including your heart rate, syncing with Samsung's Health app. You will have a voice software feedback so you the device will be telling you right in your ear how well or bad you are doing. Oh, and it can store up to 1000 MP3 songs! Pretty cool, huh? Expect it to be available in Q3. Price was not announced, though.
