"In 2017, fitness means more than just burning calories in the gym", said Garry McGregor, Director for IT and Mobile at Samsung in Australia. However, if those last two features really excited you, you are probably so invested in the Samsung ecosystem, you were already considering buying a Gear Sport anyways.
Gear Sport is a bold, brightly coloured fitness tracker that's shaped like a clock face and is jam packed full of features including flicking through TV channels, control presentation slides and the usual smartphone functions like messaging and email. Fitness tracking company Fitbit unveiled its first smartwatch the Fitbit Ionic earlier this week, while Apple is predicted to launch a 4G-enabled third generation Apple Watch before Christmas.
The 300mAh battery is allegedly enough to push the Gear Sport through four days of usage-I obviously can't comment on that based on my limited time with the watch.
During the showcase event held in Berlin, Samsung introduced two new smartwatches - the Gear Sport and the Gear Fit2 Pro - which are equipped with improved outdoor-related features. It comes in Black and Blue colors. Gear SportGear Sport is stylish, yet practical with a minimalistic, circular bezel, Super AMOLED 1.2-inch display and improved user interface that makes it easy to view information, even when on-the-go. To complement this, Samsung has upgraded its S Health app with a dedicated swimming section and partnered with Speedo to build a bespoke app. This altered quite heavily depending on how hard the band was pushed and whether Global Positioning System was on or off. Samsung didn't give me a estimated battery life for the Gear Fit 2 Pro, but considering it the same 200 mAh battery I would say they'll last a similar amount of time. The swim tracking features will come by way of Speedo's swim platform service called Speedo On, which will allow swimmers to track a range of different details like how many laps they've swam, how many strokes they had during their swim session, and even how long each lap was. It's a standard 20mm lug connector. The powerful combination of Samsung and HARMAN aims to reinvent both mobility and entertainment, taking the new and making it normal. It's also water resistant up to 50 meters too, so it can survive a dunk in the bath and a dip in the swimming pool.
With this set of basics, developers should be able to sink their teeth into some basic augmented reality thanks to ARCore . ARcore combines the information from clusters of points to get a better understanding of the environment and its features.
