the ‘gear iconX’ are cord-free earbuds that can track fitness information and provide users with feedback on their running performance. with three different sizes they offer a lightweight, secure and comfortable fit and can be activated by simply placing the earbuds in the user’s ears. they also enable tracking of fitness data such as distance, speed, duration, heart rate and calories burned.

the ‘gear fit2’ includes an embedded GPS and a heart rate monitor that offer accurate and robust tracking and measurement, while providing feedback on the user’s workout. a AMOLED curved display provides a high-resolution touchscreen for easy monitoring for responding to notifications. the standalone music player enables users to actively workout without the need of a mobile device.

  • Another useless device by Samsung. Who wants to wear screen-less device? It would be cool to connect them with some kind of 3D Glasses. Or even better – plugged micro sim would be amazing so you could answer your phone during the run. Yup!
