1.0 out of 5 stars Fails at fitness, being smart and as a watch 19 April 2014
By hh00010
I got round to upgrading my phone. Aside from the fact my old phone was becoming increasingly cranky in its old age I was looking for a phone that had Bluetooth 4.0 as I had become tempted by the world of smart watches.

Reason one I spend most of my day working in the lab, handling some lovely chemicals, and wearing gloves to protect myself from them. When I hear a notification on my phone it is hard to resist checking it, but the process of removing gloves and washing hands before looking at it is rather arduous. Being able to see how important the notification is at a glance would certainly be useful.

Reason two is that I have taken almost a year out of exercise due to injury, I’m now back on the road and trying to get back up to a vague level of fitness. I had therefore become interested in fitness bands. The third reason is that I’m a massive geek and can therefore be tempted by all most pieces of technology.

While upgrading to the Galaxy S5 I was offered the “Samsung Gear Fit” at a reduced price (£129 - it also meant I didn't need to pay any upfront cost for my phone). I read the reviews and decided to go for it. What a mistake that was. I’m going to detail how well it works as a watch, a “smart watch” and an activity band and then make a comment about some of the reviews I have read.

*Watch*

It is a fairly useless watch. You need to make an obvious flick of the wrist for the screen to turn on. I have been wearing it for 48 hours now and find that it only registers about a third of my views. If you make a very prominent and exaggerated arm movement, as if you were acting looking at a watch it work. In reality I rarely do this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable,enjoying the Gear Fit very much 16 April 2014
Prior to the release of the Gear Fit I could read literally hundreds of reviews all over the web. All of these regurgitated the same headline features, the fitness tracking, the battery life, the IP67 conformity, almost as if they were all just copying each others work. I don’t recall, however, a single one telling me how it felt on the wrist, how responsive the screen was, could I read it in direct sunlight?

Gear Fit worn outdoors
Full brightness in the evening spring sunshine.
This little review therefore will try to cover all the questions I wish somebody could have answered before I parted with my hard earned cash! Don’t get me wrong, I’m pleased that I bought the Gear Fit and we’re getting on just fine.

Comfort
I’ve not worn a watch regularly for about 20 years or so and I just hate things attached to me or otherwise hanging about my person, I find this especially difficult in my day job which involves a lot of keyboard and mouse work. Having fancied a new watch for a couple of years, something a bit more up-geek was just what I’d been waiting for but with no shops having a device available to try on, I had to take the plunge and risk it.

For these reasons, and for one of price, I decided for the Gear Fit over the Gear 2 or the Gear 2 Neo. Its curved narrow profile felt like it might be more tolerable. The length of the Fit turned out to be about the same as the width of my wrist. The slight curve of the back resulted in a fit so snug that most of the day I simply don’t realise I’m wearing it at all.

In addition, the strap is easy to pop on and off, but not so easy that it feels insecure. I do wonder however how long the holes in the plastic strap will stand up to the metal pegs that fasten the strap together.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good buy 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase
I don't know why others have rated this when they haven't purchased it? Had this a few weeks and it's great I can go running with out my phone and still record most of my stats (no gas so no mapped route)
The range on blue tooth is incredible and battery life what I'd expect from Samsung
It may be a little expensive but worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars How much?!!! 10 April 2014
I was seriously considering buying the Samsung Gear Fit as I quite like the idea of a gadget that not only keeps an eye on your health and daily activities, but also a gadget that syncs to your phone allowing you to tell when you have received a text or call. Having a Galaxy S 4 I knew that the Gear Fit would link well.

.....and then I saw the price!! This is not much cheaper than the price in dollars!! £185 is not a price that will endear this device to a lot people, although I have no doubt many will buy it. I think I will wait until we see some real reviews and a decrease in price. Until then, I will be keeping my eye on the Razer nabu which is due out in a few months time.
