Samsung launches Gear Sport and new wearables ahead of IFA 2017

The headliner of the bunch of obviously the new Samsung Gear Sport, the company's latest smartwatch with fitness features. But the company saved some juice for IFA in Berlin, as today it announced a trio of new wearable devices.

"Designed with military-level durability in mind", the Samsung Gear Sport is also impressively thin (11.6 mm) and lightweight (50 grams without interchangeable 20mm bands taken into account).

As for pricing, that's something Samsung doesn't have yet, but as per always, we'll let you know the moment we do. It doesn't have as many apps as Android Wear or Apple's WatchOS, and using a Gear Sport means swapping Google Assistant for Bixby, which definitely qualifies as a downgrade.

Analysts claim the Apple Watch is the best-selling smartwatch by a significant margin, presenting Samsung and Fitbit with a real challenge in dethroning it. "By introducing new smart capabilities and easy-to-use features, and by partnering with leading names in tech and fitness, Samsung is helping consumers go beyond fitness and accomplish big things".

Samsung's Gear Sport and new IconX will be available sometime in the fall.

As for the other features on the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro, it also offers built-in Global Positioning System and heart rate monitoring, so you've got everything you need to leave your smartphone at home for the morning run. These are features that most fitness trackers are able to track these days. Gear Fit2 Pro's Super AMOLED curved 1.5-inch display and a high-resolution color touchscreen make real-time updates and notifications easier to read. These kinds of practical features go beyond telling you to just go to the gym, and it's what makes the Gear Sport really stand out. When you need more data, though? The Samsung Gear Sport is powered by a dual-core chipset clocked at 1GHz, paired with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
