    Great Fitness Track For The Everyday Athlete

    I’ve had a number of different fitness tracking devices over the years and have had some great ones and not so great ones. I have had the Gear Fit 2 over the past 8 months and enjoyed it but I really disliked one feature: waterproof. So naturally I was very excited when they announced the Gear Fit 2 Pro with a waterproof design and swim tracking capabilities. I’ll add I’m using this tracker with my Samsung Galaxy S8 so I’m not sure how it is on other phones. Here are my Pros & Cons so far: Pros: - The display on this tracker is beautiful. Really easy to tell what you are looking at and easy to use interface - I really enjoy the GPS tracking and it can better tell how long my runs/walks were or how far I biked - The heart rate monitor is simply and will monitor throughout the day to give you more feedback - They upgraded the clasp on this model to be better for swimming. It is more like a watch clasp which is more comfortable and has little chance of falling off. I found my Gear Fit 2 model falling off a lot as it had a different strap design. - The fitness tracking is perfect for the “everyday athlete” as I mentioned. I know other fitness trackers are really heavy duty and can do a lot for you but I think the Gear Fit 2 Pro will meet the majority of peoples needs. It tracks steps, distance, floors, calories throughout the day but can detect when you are really working out and will be more focused in during that time. A feature I use a lot is tracking activities using their profiles. You can have it truck you walking, biking, curling, running, or whatever very easily. - I sit at a desk during the day and it will alert me when I haven’t moved in about an hour which I like. - Finally, the waterproof and swimming tracking is worth the upgrade to me. It works great in the water and to me having a waterproof tracker is great as you never have to worry about it getting broken when around water or even in the rain. Cons: - Weather apps can only update using location through your phone. The tracker has WiFi and GPS so I’m not sure why it needs the phone for that. - If you have Auto Heartrate on it will monitor HR throughout the day which I like. However, it omits a bright green light when it does so which can be annoying in a dark place but if you have the strap tight to your wrist you do not notice it much. - The battery life is only 2-3 days from my use which is pretty short in my mind. Overall I am very happy with this new upgrade. I think its great for people who like to workout everyday. Whether its lifting, running, crossfit, basketball, soccer, biking, or swimming. I think most everyone would enjoy this.

    Do not buy if you plan to sweat while wearing it

    FrustratedSamsungUser

    I bought this product to wear for running and loved its features. All I have done is run with this watch and have even taken it off while showering. Recently the screen started getting glitchy and it was still within warranty so I contacted Samsung customer service and (finally) got a UPS shipping label for the return after 3 follow-ups. OK no problem, at least it'll get fixed and I'll be back to being able to use it. Was delivered back to me today (hurray!) and to my dismay there was a college rejection-like letter telling me they regret to inform me my product is deemed unrepairable due to liquid damage. Excuse me, liquid damage?? Isn't this product water resistant to a claimed 50 meters? I called Samsung again to ask them how they can claim water resistance but not back up a product that is damaged by water, especially when I didn't do anything with it but sweat while running. After talking with the representative and her supervisor, I was informed liquid damage is not covered under warranty. This is very obviously a defective product which is bad enough but then to have Samsung not stand behind it and hang me out to dry? Not OK. That's not how good business is done. I am now no longer a Samsung customer because of this and will be telling everyone I know, not that they care. Please learn from my mistake and dont waste your money. I hear Garmin and Apple make good products.

    Terrible battery life

    Posted
    UBEDawg

    I bought this when my FB Surge 2 bit the dust. Not that it really died, but the band finally gave way, and can't be replaced. I've had the GearFit for a few months and still trying to get used to it. Yes, it is cool looking. At a glance, I can read the screen easily. There are a lot of options and customization. Built in GPS and the bands can be replaced. Those are the primary reasons I bought this. I'm not a runner, but the GPS tracking is a must for cycling. Built in WIFI. After walking, I like seeing the steps, time and MPH. (who knew that I could walk so fast?) But for the few months that I wore this (bought in middle of winter, then never got around to having the bike tuned up), there wasn't any cycling so I can't comment on how well the GPS works. While walking, the GearFit will pick up on the activity, and if I glance at the face, it shows the activity time. This doesn't really help me, I'd prefer to see the steps at a glance. Again, I am sure that this is something that I have to customize. But that battery life! Went for a walk yesterday and realized yet again that I wasn't wearing it because it was at home sitting in the charging cradle (where it spends a lot of time). Seems like it has to be charged at least every 3 days. Ideally every other day, before you get the low battery notification. Activity tracking is not as good as my FB, or maybe it's just different. Spring and summer is lots of mowing (not a riding mower). 1 piece of mowing is around 5000 steps, the other two are around 7000 steps each. The FB would capture these steps, and pretty accurately, too. I know because I had someone with a Samsung tracker follow me around while mowing and we both recorded the same number of steps +/- 200 steps. The GearFit just says "other activity" or something like that, and does not capture the steps. I think I could probably push buttons on the tracker and tell it to capture my walking, not sure about this, but even if I could, I don't think that I should have to. Pairing with Samsung apps on my iPhone is a manual and tedious process. FB would constantly sync if I set it up to do so. The Samsung does not. In order to sync, I have to open the app on my phone, and make sure that my GearFit display is on. My SO tells me that there is no trouble with constant sync, so apparently this is something that is unique to me, another setting that I might have missed. For casual activity (ie, not a hard core runner), I think that this tracker is great for the price IF you don't mind the battery life. And if I could remember to charge it every other day, instead of realizing at the last minute that it's almost dead, I probably wouldn't mind. After doing some browsing, I was going to give this away and possibly go for the Garmin Forerunner 35 or 235. But not being a hardcore athlete, I am going to play around with it some more and give it until the end of the summer.

    Nice features but Disappointing Battery Life

    Posted

    I really wanted to love this band. It is packed with features including GPS, waterproofing and offline music but the battery life is a deal breaker. First, the positives: 1. Screen is gorgeous. So much nicer than Fitbit/Garmin products. 2. Full array of features. Too many to list but the standouts are all day HR tracking, GPS, offline music and a robust app platform. 3. Fit and comfort. This is personal but I like the way this looks. It's fairly thin across the wrist. I prefer my tracker to be boring and not noticeable. This fits that well. 4. I often have trouble getting wrist based HR trackers to work during cardio on things like elliptical and Stairmasters. Usually due to positioning and poor fit. This band seems to do better on that front. It picked up my cardio routines over the weekend within 5 minutes or so. It seems to stay put with the wide band so I think that's a good design choice. Now the problem and it's a big one. Battery life is horrendous. Samsung claims "up to 3 days" with typical usage. No way. I'm worried I can't even get two days on this thing. That is with location OFF, almost all notifications OFF and wrist gestures OFF. Even like this, it will barely last 2 days. What's the point of this if I have to turn everything off to get 2 days? I don't know what the issue is since I have the screen off almost all of the time so it can't be that. I even did a full reset and that improved things a little but still the target is barely two days. 2 days without GPS on at all is simply unacceptable. As I write this, the watch has been on my wrist for 30 hours and it's at 40%. I have a workout scheduled later for 45 minutes and I'm worried it won't make it through the day since the battery life drains fast when tracking exercise. Samsung needs to do better. I'm going to give this a few more days to see if it settles down but I'm not hopeful. I'll revise this if things improve.

    Terrible support - broke after 5 months

    To start, this device seemed to have all the features I wanted for a running/fitness watch, plus a lot of extras I didn't care much about with regards to phone synching, etc. I wore this watch daily (most days) and used it for running and gym workouts. Never swam with it, never exposed it to water other than washing my hands and I did wear it in the shower on occasion. It was supposed to be water resistant, so no big deal. HOWEVER, 5 months after purchase the device screen stopped working and the LED screen would flicker but not turn on. I emailed Samsung support, called, waited for call back or email, finally after 3 attempts to reach them, I got the shipping label from them to send the device back (since it was still under warranty!) so they could assess and repair. They returned the device a month later saying it's not going to be fixed because it has WATER DAMAGE to the internal parts. Ridiculous, it's been in the rain and showers.. not even submerged in a bath tub. After 4 more times calling and trying to talk to someone at Samsung, I got them to agree that this happens a lot and they will receive it back so they can repair it, and it will be elevated in priority to get fixed. They never sent me the shipping label required though. So I called back again. They told me I had to speak to another supervisor or something, but they were busy so would call me back in an hour. That was 3 months ago. After 2 months of phone calls and emails to them, and waiting for responses and getting contradicting information from them each time I called, I give up. This device is a piece of crap. It didn't even last 6 months, and if they are telling the truth about water damage, then their device is of the lowest quality. I will never buy a Samsung product again after the way they mishandled this issue. I was not surprised to find out that this is a common problem with Samsung, and they frequently blame "water damage" on bad quality devices so they don't have to replace or repair their crappy products. Never again.

    Great upgrade to the Fit 2 and Replaces a Fitbit

    This is the Gear Fit that I have been waiting for. I have been a die hard Fitbit Surge user for the last 2 years. I switched from the Microsoft Band, which was great. Fitbit products are great, but they have grown stale and don't include some of the important information that the Gear Fit 2 Pro does. The GF2P now does continuous heart rate, so when I'm doing my cross-fit style workouts, I just set it to 'other workout' and it tracks pretty well. Over the weekend with 3 different workouts of 60+ minutes it came in a little higher on the heart rate peak (compared to the surge) and the calorie burn was lower (which I don't think is a bad thing. Just means I need to work harder). I really like the fact I can review previous workouts (stats and charts) right from the device, which you can't do with the surge. You can also view a map of your run right on the device. It is really light and I barely notice that I'm wearing it. I know use my Gear S3 during the day and a gear fit 2 pro for workouts, and Samsung Health auto switches the devices and combines the steps for me. Looking forward to testing out the waterproofing and hope that it holds up. Only negative for me so far is that because it is plastic and light, it feels a little cheap. You get a lot of features in such a small device.

    What not to do in the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

    Run, walk, swim, bike, yard work, hike, workout, canoeing, bowling, yoga, hot yoga, backpacking participate in any sport or any physical activity. I purchased this smartwatch and I wore it while working out at the gym, and while working out like anyone I sweat. The watch failed in month 10 and would not charge. I sent to watch into Samsung to repair it because it was within the one year warranty. Samsung returned the watch to me within a week and stated that the motherboard was corrupted because it got wet. I thought that to be strange because it was advertised that the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro is waterproof, and I don’t swim just workout at the gym and yard work. So I went back and forth and was finally told that the watch was would not be replaced, and was not warrantable because it was my fault that I wore the watch and my sweat got into the watch and all Samsung watches aren’t waterproof. So I was out of money time and would have to buy a new watch. So to close do NOT buy this watch or any Samsung Fit watches if you are an active person. Please avoid what I went through and look into another brand. Samsung does not care.

    Charging Issues/Not Good

    I've had it for less than a year. Within the first couple of months the band broke. Neither Best Buy or Samsung had replacement bands. I had to get a new one from somewhere else. I've had a problems charging it since I got it. I never thought much of it because after a few tries it would charge. Recently, it's gotten worse. Sometimes after a lot if effort I can get it to charge (It sometimes takes literally a half hour or more). I bought a new charger because I thought that was the problem. It didn't work. I then noticed that one of the contacts on the back of the watch had something black on it, it could either be from the coating on the back of the watch or dirt and that was probably making it hard to get contact with the prongs on the charger. I don't think it's dirt because both contacts would have it on them. Anyway, I tried to clean it but can't. Today, I've been trying for about an hour to get it to charge, and so far I can't. Without the issues with the charging (which is a big issue) it would be okay. The sleep monitor and floor counter are way off. The step counter is okay when it's synced with your Samsung mobile phone. The only thing that I really like about it is that it has built in GPS. Perhaps Samsung should consider making it's next fitness tracker like it's smart watch (The charger doesn't have prongs and the sensor on the back of the watch is covered). I just ordered another brand of fitness tracker. Hopefully, I'll be receiving it within a few days. Until then, I'm gonna struggle trying to get this one to charge.

    This thing is great for my use case. Nice unobtrusive form factor that feels great on the wrist. The screen is nice and bright. Navigation UI is smooth and easy to use. You can download watch faces to change its look. Onboard music, don't need phone when working out. My main use is to tell time and listen to music while working out. This has 4gb of onboard storage to put your own music on this thing or you can put Spotify playlists on this as well. The music controls are easy to use, and this connects smooth and easy to bluetooth headphones so I don't need to take my phone with me while I work out. I can run, play basketball, do yoga, etc without my giant clunky phone bouncing around. The nice form factor doesn't get in the way of my wrist flexing. It is near perfect for active workouts. I've own this for a little more than 1.5 years, and everything has been perfect. BUT, now this thing randomly shuts down. I press the power button and the Samsung screen turns on, but then turns off. I can't get it to fully boot. I've reset it, kept it fully charged, started fresh. It randomly turns off and won't boot up properly. It happens completely at random like after 1hr, 3hrs, or 8hrs. Once it shuts down, I have no idea when I can turn it back on. It is completely unreliable at this point.

    I moved up from the standard Gear Fit2 to the Gear Fit2 Pro and was not disappointed. The built-in MyFitnessPal app seems to work better than the same app on the standard Gear Fit2, the default watch faces are better (more info), the style of the watch band itself (the way it looks and holds) is much improved, the fact that it claims to be waterproof is a needed improvement (they say you can track swimming now as i understand it, but it's not swimming weather where i am as i write this).. I haven't had any freezes/hangs/slowdowns etc. like i did often have with the original gear fit2 (so far, anyway), though with the original band I found when that happened a reboot often fixed it Battery life is good, i went at least 2 days without charging (which for a smartwatch is great, i read the apple watch won't last a full day) and had around 40-50% battery left at end of 2nd day (note: battery life depends on what you do with it, what apps and watch faces you install will also affect it). I do think exercise calorie tracking more closely matched the machines reporting of calories burned (on treadmill, elliptical).. Overall, I'm not disappointed with this upgrade from the previous watch, even if overall the core functions of the watch are not that much different than the standard Gear Fit2.

    Overpriced Child's Toy

    I am very disappointed with the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro. It was a birthday present from my husband. He went with the Samsung brand because I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. Samsung does phones well; however, they should have left sports/activity watches to Fitbit and Garmin. My primary exercise activity is the elliptical. The Gear Fit2 Pro only gives me 35-55% of my steps on the elliptical. My old Fitbit didn’t have an issue counting my steps. I also climb stairs for exercise. The Gear Fit2 Pro only counts about 80% of my floors. The heart-rate monitor is suspect as well. I get in a good aerobic workout, but at age 55, I’m pretty sure my heart-rate isn’t going over 200 bpm like the Gear Fit2 Pro says it is. I called customer service, and sent my watch in for repair. They returned it without fixing the issues, because they couldn’t find any issues. It meets their quality standards. When I called them to ask about it, they brought up their disclaimer: The device is not 100% accurate. None of them are 100% accurate, but Fitbit and Garmin certainly come a lot closer to the mark than Samsung! This watch is like a child’s toy; it looks like the real thing, and functions similarly to a real sports/activity watch, but the data it provides is all imaginary.

    i would say it is worth the money if you get it for the 150.00 sale price. i would not pay 180.00 or so for this. i use it mostly as an every day watch with most of the apps turned off so it doesnt drain the battery and i only get maybe 2 days out of the watch. the only way to really squeeze 3 to 4 days out of it is if you turn off all the notification, apps, and have it on power saver mode which would force you to push the button every time you wanted to see the time as opposed to just turning your wrist. i kayak and fish a lot of this works well for me, especially because im out on the water or around the water quite often. the screen is rather fragile so i would HIGHLY recommend getting the screen protector for it. any bump or brush and your screen will be blemished or scratched. over all i am pleased with this fitness watch and its general performance for what i use it for and recommend it to anyone who is out and about the water. however i would treat it like it is NOT water proof and only submerge it or get it wet when necessary. do not wear it in the shower and what not. the heat will probably cause the seals to expand and let water in. also, if in salt water you might want to rinse it really well to avoid any kind of corrosion to the hardware or seals. just baby it and everything will be ok

    great simple smartwatch

    Posted
    insidmal

    I don't use the activity tracking much, I mostly wanted notifications of my schedule and other simple notifications so I wouldn't have to check my phone so much. I've had several other smart watches in the past, all were expensive and had a lot of features that were completely uncessary to me, I was pleased to find one that was less expensive and did what I needed it to. I really liked the wirstband of the previous fit 2 model, it was easy to adjust throughout the day, I don't really care for the clasp but it seems everyone other than myself had problems with the old latch so it makes sense they would change it. The problem I did have with the old model was the wristband broke off from the unit, the wristbands are replaceable however I was unable to locate an OEM version. For what I use it for, which is to receive notifications and view my schedule, it works perfectly. I do also really like the heart rate monitor and sleep tracking and they seem to work well. The battery life is great, I seem to use about 1-2% per hour and just place it on the charger when I take a shower and it always stays pretty much at full charge. This is a great product for the price given that it fulfills your needs for a device. It looks great and discreet as well.

    The fitness/smart watch is great for what it is intended to do. Mostly a fitness tracker with some smart watch features. The auto detect for workouts is spot on even though at times it thinks you are doing another type of workout. Gives great notifications only thing missing is a way to reply more specific as the only way is the default replies like yes, no, ok, etc. Battery life is around 2 days depending on what you use the watch for, the more features or times you use it the faster the battery wastes. Sleep tracking is spot on even though it doesn't track it through heart rate like fit bit does. The fact that you can save music from your phone or even from spotify to listen away from your phone is awesome for the gym. At the end of the day it just isn't for me nothing to do with this device it's just the whole smart watch fitness tracker thing. I love classic wristwatches and yes sounds weird because this is why you get something like this but the constant notifications to keep looking at your wrist started getting annoying. Nothing beats a classic watch still to this day which only means we aren't completely there yet on smart watches. If you are looking for this type of device then get it, just isn't for me. 4 stars even though it wasn't for me it's intended purpose is top notch.

    Cannot Swim with it! Beware!

    Posted
    TigerLily1124

    I am VERY disappointed in Samsung and their marketing team. They lead me to believe that their Gear Fit 2 Pro was water resistant and that I could swim with it. I have not had it for even a year yet and I just swam with it once (in a 4 ft deep pool) and the screen went out. Called Samsung Support, they told me they would repair it as it was still under warranty. I sent in the watch and they want to charge me to repair it saying there is water damage?!? What happened to your marketing saying you can swim with it? I didn't dive with it! So I called Samsung support and he told me you can only swim with it for 30 minutes max. I don't remember seeing that in the ad? Your marketing team needs to say that upfront! SO DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A GOOD COMPANY THAT SELLS A SMART WATCH THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SWIM WITH? AND THAT THEY WILL STAND BEHIND? Because I am in the market for a new smart watch... Fitbit, Apple, Garmin? By the way, in case you missed it, I do NOT recommend Samsung watches.

    Fit2 was good but Pro makes it better!

    SteveO

    I have a Gear S2 and had the Fit2. I wear the Gear watch on a daily basis more for notification and app purposes. Whereas the Fit2 was solely for workout. I started off with the original Fit which I thought was pretty well made but was quite lacking in comparison to other fitness smart watches. Then upgraded to the Fit2 once that was released and that made a huge difference. Samsung did a pretty good job listening to their customer's complaints with the first Fit and upgraded the Fit2 quite heavily. Now the one thing I always hoped on the Fit2 was for it to be waterproof, not just resistant but actually able to submerge it while swimming. The Pro made that possible and I no longer have to wear my G-Shock for water activities. The Gear App was recently updated as well to make switching watches much easier on an Android phone. I would recommend this watch for anyone looking for a fitness smart watch. I've seen a lot of complaints about battery life but I usually charge my watches on a daily basis so it really doesn't bother me.

    Cool look, disappointing performance

    This watch was a Christmas gift this past year, so I've had it for a little over six months now. I did my research and actively asked for this because it is a very sleek, attractive look, is waterproof (I free dive), and not a GIGANTIC watch on my wrist. Appearance and waterproofing have not disappointed. It also integrates with text, email, skype for business, etc. pretty well. The cons... IT DOES NOT FUNCTION AS AN ACTIVITY TRACKER. I went for a run with three different fitness trackers on my wrist on two different occasions and found the result to be the Gear Fit2 Pro only recorded 60% of my steps and distance. If I turn on any combination of the GPS, heart rate monitor, or music, I don't make it through my run before the battery dies. Also, it's been a while since I tried to add music to the internal storage, but it was an EXTREMELY clunky and slow process. So much so, that I never tried to add any more music after the first 10 or so songs. Given the position of this watch as a "hybrid" between fitness trackers and full on smart watches, I was very excited about it. I have been very disappointed with it's performance, though, and did not get any support from Samsung when I called to inquire about it. Non-functional eye-candy is how I would best characterize this product.

    This is my second fitness tracker and I am very disappointed. Number one issue is battery life. with all apps disabled and set to power saving mode it will last 2 days. But in this mode it will not connect to my iPhone unless it is taken out of power saving mode. Second the primary app just shows you the battery, storage, and memory levels, and a collection of watch faces, no fitness data. For that you need to launch Samsung Health app. The Samsung calorie app is not very user friendly and not as useful as My Fitness Pal which you can download and use on your fitness tracker, but the results are not shown in the Samsung Health app. Also impossible to enter data in My Fitness Pal on the fitness tracker the screen is to small. You can also use the My Fitness Pal app on your smart phone, but to sync the Samsung with it you must have the My Fitness Pal on the fitness tracker installed and open as well as on your smart phone. The best thing about the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro is the looks shape and feel. It is less likely to get caught or hung up than the previous fitness tracker that I had.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
