Samsung Adds the Galaxy Active and Galaxy Fit to Their Wearable Line
Alongside its much-awaited foldable smartphone and the Galaxy S10, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Watch Active and the Galaxy Fit fitness tracker today. The new wearables are the Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Buds
The Galaxy Watch Active is a fitness-focused smartwatch which serves as a successor of the Galaxy Fit. It features a 1.1-inch 360×360 Full-Color display with an Exynos 9110 Dual-core 1.15GHz processor coupled with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage and powered by a 230mAh battery. It also has sleep, stress, exercise and health tracking features such as blood pressure monitoring and an in-built stress tracker. The smartwatch is capable of auto-detecting workouts as well. Other features include Bluetooth 4.2, MIL-STD-810G + IP68 rating and interchangeable straps. It’s powered by Tizen OS 4.0 and comes in Silver, Black, Rose Gold and Sea Green colours.
The Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e are new fitness trackers from Samsung. Unlike the Galaxy Watch Active, both devices focus exclusively on fitness-centric features. Users can also manually select from more than 90 different activities such as running, swimming, biking and more in the Samsung Health app and the tracker will automatically start monitoring the workout.
The Galaxy Fit features a 0.95-inch Full-Color AMOLED display while the Galaxy Fit e comes with a 0.74-inch PMOLED panel. The Galaxy Fit will be available in Black and Silver while the Galaxy Fit e will be offered in Black, White and Yellow colours. There’s a 120mAh and 70mAh battery on the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e, respectively. The only other notable difference between the two is the inclusion of an NFC chip in the former. The Galaxy Watch Active will cost $199 at launch.
