Garare,Zimbabwe (News of the South)-Not content just to let the Galaxy Note 8 make waves, Samsung is pushing out three new fitness minded wearables this holiday season: the Gear Icon X 2018 wireless earbuds, the Gear Sport smartwatch and the Gear Fit 2 Pro fitness band.

 

Now none of these devices are exactly new (or attractive). What we’re really looking at are rehashes of earlier devices with a slightly widened focus of dressing your fitness needs for both land and in the water.

 

But perhaps the biggest changes come thanks to Samsung’s new partnerships with companies such as Under Armor, Spotify and Speedo, which should breathe a little life into Samsung’s somewhat barren wearable app ecosystem.

 

Starting with the Gear Sport, Samsung has blended much of the capabilities of its flagship Gear S3 smartwatch, with the cleaner lines and less bulky dimensions of the older Gear S2. In fact, I might even go so far as to say that this is what the Gear S3 should have been all along.

 

You get a 1.2-inch AMOLED display and built-in GPS with easily swappable 20mm straps, but without the hyper-aggressive macho styling of the Gear S3.

 

To its credit, Samsung hasn’t messed around with the Gear Sport’s controls, which are still the best on any smartwatch to date thanks to its rotating bezel and the two buttons built into the right side of the device.

 

Samsung has also included 4GB of built-in storage, so you can load it up with your own MP3s or take advantage of Spotify’s offline listening mode. And with new water-resistance that can withstand up to 5 atmospheres of pressure, there shouldn’t be any problems wearing the Gear Sport while swimming.-Gizmodo
