    "Swimming watch" that you can't swim with

    I got this for my wife last Christmas. Initially we really liked like and I wished it had NFC. If it had Samsung Pay I would have gotten one instead of my Gear S3 Classic. Great screen. Nice app integration. Waterproofing for swimming. Lightweight... That all changed in about 6-7 months. All of a sudden it wouldn't charge and it wouldn't turn on. I contacted Samsung and they said the battery needed to be replaced. Since it was registered with my wife she needed to do the warranty request. Being that my wife takes a long time to get things like this done, about 4 months later it finally went in for repair. A few days later it showed up with a letter saying that Samsung would not repair it because it had water damage. I immediately went and looked up the specifications and the warranty. The warranty states that Samsung will not warranty water damage, but it will fix defects in the product. So my wife called Samsung to discuss the issue since the watch hadn't been used beyond the advertised specifications. She had swam with it 3 times for maybe 15 minutes each, but beyond that she never got it wet (probably a splash when washing her hands...). Since the watch is clearly rated for swimming in the advertised specifications, water damage is a defect in the product if it was never used beyond its rating. If you go to the official web page for the watch the very first thing it says is: "Go from swimming laps to jumping in the shower. Gear Fit2 Pro is water resistant up to 5 ATM*. And whether you choose the pool or open water, the Speedo On** app developed for Gear Fit2 Pro tracks your stats...". It goes on to state "water resistance rating of 50 meters under the ISO standard 22810:2010". If Samsung won't warrant it to its advertised water specifications, it should clearly stop highlighting the feature and having the Speedo app one of the default apps installed. Even though it's clearly stated that the watch is rated for water usage, the support rep my wife talked to on the phone said that since they said it was water damaged (which it states in the warranty isn't covered) they wouldn't fix it or replace it even though the water damage is due to the product being defective. What a waste of time and money... Bought a swimming watch, swam with it, it stopped working because it's defective, and then the company won't back up its advertised specifications. We're probably going to follow-up with support one more time because it's ridiculous that they won't replace a defective item. Given this interaction with Samsung, I'm hesitant to buy a Samsung product again. I almost bought a Note9 last week but it didn't end up working out. Was going to buy it in the next couple weeks but now I'm thinking I'll look elsewhere.

    Most disappointing purchase of 2018

    This product fails, almost completely, to do what it's designed to do. Oh, there are some good points. The OLED touch screen is a revelation compared to Fitbit's crappy monochrome screens. And having onboard GPS and music capability is nice, but since I almost always have a phone with me not terribly important to me. And it does seem to count steps pretty accurately.And..... that's about it. What does it fail at?  Well, it's totally incapable of recognizing a flight of stairs. I live in a typical American home with 8 foot ceilings. I typically go up and down the stairs about 10 times a day. The Pro 2 rarely counts more than 5. Sometimes as few as 2. It even sometimes fails to recognize the 12 foot flight of stairs at my gym. These forums are full of complaints about this problem on all of Samsung's wearables, and Samsung ignores them. The HR sensor might as well be a random number generator. When exercising, it has no relationship to my actual heart rate. I've compared it to a Polar chest strap monitor, which I've verified by comparing it to my manually taken pulse. On an elliptical trainer, the Pro 2 generally runs 20 to 40 bpm below actual. I've gotten off and had the Gear say my PEAK HR was 20 bpm below what the Polar shows as my average. For whatever reason, though, sometimes the Gear jumps up and shows numbers 30, 40, even 50 bpm higher than actual. It's shown my peak HR at over 190 bpm. I think I'd be dead if that happened. When weightraining, the Pro 2 varies from about 20 bpm too low to 20 bpm too high, and everywhere in between, at random. Sometimes it goes up when I'm resting and my HR is going down. Sometimes it just seems to get stuck on one number, no matter what my actual HR is doing.   Oh, and it's supposed to automatically go on continuous HR monitoring when I start an exercise program, but that doesn't seem to work either. If I manually take my HR during exercise, it will show a number much closer to actual than the "automatic" reading.  Battery life sucks. I have the HR sensor set to "Frequent," and if I don't go to the gym I can go about 3 1/2 days between charges. But if I spend 90 minutes a day at the gym (with the HR sensor on Continuous during exercise), which is typical, I can barely get 2 days of battery life. My old Charge 2, which had it's own problems, easily went 4 to 5 cays when I went to the gym every day.  And while it's nice that I can see so much information on the watch itself, it does make the UI cumbersome. To start an exercise program, for example, takes something like 7 button presses, taps and swipes to start. Even stopping an exercise takes 3 actions, which seems like at least 1 too many.  I'd fine things like the UI and battery life to be less annoying if the device did what it's supposed to, but it just doesn't.  It's no better than (maybe worse), than a $30 fitness band. At $200, it's a complete ripoff.

    Not waterproof as advertised

    I bought my watch six months ago and haven't had any problems with it. Then, a little over a month ago, I noticed the band was separating from the watch face. I knew it would eventually be an issue, so I had planned on sending it in for repair (hoping it would be covered under warranty). As it's supposed to be and is advertised as being waterproof, I have always showered and even swam in it with no problems. This morning I charged it to 100% and went about my day. I took a workout class at my office gym, took a shower afterwards and then went back to work. My watch vibrated, which it's set to only vibrate when the battery is low, so I looked and it was dead. I put it back on the charger and it said 1%. After inspecting, the band has seemed to separate more, so I'm wondering if water got into it when I showered after class. I started reading reviews on the watch, only to be extremely disappointed in what I found. It seems that water damage is a fairly common issue. And when people have sent their watch into Samsung for repair, they have been denied, saying water damage isn't covered under warranty. This is my first fitness watch, and I'm extremely disappointed to have it only last 6 months. I'm a Samsung user, and prefer their phones to the iPhone. So I'm really sad this watch didn't work and that people who have sent their watch in have had such horrible experiences in getting it repaired

    Great Activity Tracker

    I've had this now for several months and I really love it. It tracks so much more than my old Fitbits did, with a lot more options. Having the music right on it makes going to the gym so much easier. I don't have to carry an ipod around with me. I use it to time my intervals, and I like the voice updates telling me I'm halfway to goal, or almost there. You can turn them off if you don't like the interruptions. I like having the weather right there, and a lot of metrics easily tracked. I also like that I can see who is calling or texting me, and send a quick pre-programmed response without stopping my workout. When at the gym sometimes I'm too far from the locker for it to work, but a quick walk past the locker room picks up anything missed. Cons would be the battery sucks. All prior reviews saying that are dead on. With heavy usage I only get about a day and a half. However, it charges really fast. I put it on the charger when I take a shower, or am standing at the bathroom sink getting ready in the morning, and it's charged when I'm done. The only other con is it runs with several apps linked, where Fitbit just has 1 app that does everything. I'd rather have it all in one place, but it was a small thing to get used to and not a deal breaker for me. The sleek design is much better than the smart watches that are just huge and square and I have no need for half of what they do. It's winter, so I haven't used mine to swim yet, but I've showered in it no problem. Overall, I recommend as long as you don't mind popping it on the charger once a day you'll be fine. It does much more than my fitbits ever did, and addresses a lot of things I felt they lacked. I'm really happy with it.

    I got this watch for Christmas last year (Dec 2017). My husband purchased the Best Buy geek squad plan which I am very thankful for. I loved the watch. It did everything that I wanted--heartrate, sleep tracking, steps, email/text other smartphone features. I wore it 24/7 only took it off to charge when I showered (charge only lasts 24 hrs at best with everything on). I never swam in it or submerged it. It did not get wet to my knowledge. I did workout with it so I sweated in it. It is a workout watch btw. It lasted less than 30 days before it shut off and would not turn back on. Black screen. I had geek squad so I brought it back and they replaced. Totally awesome. We thought it was a lemon. No worries. Got a new watch. The same thing happened again but it lasted about 3 months this time. Really odd but I took it back again and Best Buy replaced since I still had geek squad. Now I'm losing interest in this watch since this is number 3 and now I don't wear it to sleep anymore so it charges overnight. Watch number 3 stopped working after 3 months. Got another. It never came out of the box and I just returned it. Clearly, there is a problem. I don't submerge the watch I only workout in it. I have read other reviews where they had similar issues and sent the watch to Samsung(they didn't have geek squad) and Samsung said it had water damage so they wouldn't replace. I just bought the new Galaxy watch and am hoping for better results. Love this watch even more than the Gear Fit2. Hopefully, Samsung has fixed the sweat issue.Just in case I got geek squad.

    I really, really thought I would fall in love with this device. Waterproof, lightweight, with a vivid display, and featuring 3+ day battery life? What more could I want?! Unfortunately, I quickly ran into several problems that prevented me from even using the device as it was intended--let alone enjoying it--over the 8 days that I tested it. After a few days, the Bluetooth connection to my phone began cutting in and out for no apparent reason (despite the fact that my other Bluetooth devices, like headphones and a Fitbit I was using for comparison purposes, stayed connected no problem). Battery life was also WAY worse for me than was advertised. I would barely get 24 hours of battery when I had location/wifi on and screen brightness turned to level 6-7 (it comes set at 7 out of the box). Even at minimum brightness and with location/wifi off and several app notifications toggled off, I was only ever able to squeak by with a little over 2 days of usage (45-46 hours). Not the worst ever in the world of wearables, but definitely not even close to what Samsung advertised as the battery life for "typical usage." I see more positive reviews on the Fit2 Pro on various retailer sites, so I'm not sure if I got a lemon, or if Samsung is having some quality control problems with the manufacturing of this device. But in any case, I am disappointed with my purchase and would not recommend. I am mulling over the purchase of a gear S3 or the upcoming gear sport... We shall see!

    Water Damage from Washing Hands

    DON'T get WET. Supposedly water resistant, but when it stops working after you wash your hands, don't expect Samsung to repair it. What a joke. RESEARCH this issue before deciding to buy, plenty of other people with the same story. It is such a shame because my wife loved this product, we are avid Samsung phone users, have an expensive Samsung fridge. We stuck with them through the exploding phones/washing machines. However we are done with Samsung after they refused to repair replace this Samsung Gear Fit 2 watch for water damage, when it had never even been submerged. Never even swam with it on. Hard to trust their Water resistant ratings on any of their products after this. So no more Samsung phones, Fridges, Washers/Dryers for us. No more using Samsung Pay everywhere we go, bye bye Samsung. #GoneForLife. Such a shame, never felt so ripped of before. We will be escalating with Best Buy, and the Credit Card company used to purchase.

    Not for use in the water

    tams0

    I purchased this watch for my daughter who swims competitively. 4 months after buying the product, the battery lost life, randomly shut off, and would not charge. I contacted Samsung customer service and they had me send it back to them for a repair. The watch returned with a letter that said the watch was unrepairable due to water damage. What? Samsung's website claims you can go straight from swimming laps to the shower. Did they mean with the watch, or without it? Apparently—stated contrary to the website and the box—Samsung customer service informed me that this watch is rated for less than 30 minutes in clean water (not chlorinated) and no deeper than 5 feet. By using the built in swim workout mode, you void the warranty and risk ruining the watch. We also purchased one for my son to use for running. His watch tracks three quarters of a mile short over a three mile run. Disappointingly inaccurate. When counting steps, the watches are fantastic, but so is a pedometer from the dollar store. So if you want a $200 pedometer then this is the watch for you. Just don’t count on it for swimming or running and certainly do not expect Samsung to stand behind their product or their marketing.

    And this I think is as close to the Pebble I'll get in a current Smartwatch maker. It's not the E-Ink display that's highly readable even in daylight, but it's not ridiculously large and cumbersome. It's not able to dictate texts on your wrist like the Pebble Round or Pebble 2 could, but it does have a Heart Rate monitor on the back. The services are kind of janky (MyFitnessPal requires you to open the app on the watch to 'send' fitness activity to the app, where Pebble just 'hooked in', no updates needed...) but when you figure out how to send what where, it works brilliantly for fitness tracking. Why I did choose this: Battery Life. I hate the idea of recharging a watch daily after use. Like any watch in the past, I want to put it on, forget I have it, and go about my life. Yes, ultimately, smartwatch batteries need some love, but I can forgive 3-5 days of juice over 1. (Still have yet to find the holy trinity Pebble had: E-Ink, 7 day charge time, and simple to use.) Advice: turn Wi-Fi off unless you want to charge it right afterwards. That's on by default after prepping it, and it saps your battery like mad. Wi-Fi is really only useful in a Gym or at Home when your phone is unavailable for some reason. This isn't going to use Cellular Service, so even on a run, feed it music and Bluetooth directly to the watch itself. Also, display brightness matters. Pick the lowest one you can see in a brightly lit room. (Nevermind outdoors, you won't see it easily in bright sunlight.)

    So far, this watch has been pretty good. I haven't had any technical issues or anything like that. The 4 start rating is because there are some features that sound nice in theory, but really aren't very beneficial. You can answer calls through the watch, but they actually answered on your phone since the watch doesn't have a speaker or microphone. The emoji replies you can use for texting are very limited so most of the time I end up using my phone to choose an emoji or reply to messages. There is an app on the watch to enter your calorie intake to your myfitness pal profile, but you can only increase by 1 calorie at a time and there is no nutrition information. If you have a 300 calorie meal, you have to push the ^ button 300 times. You would also need to know the exact calories if you want to add them through your watch. This feature would be way more beneficial if you could select from a list of favorites or frequently added meals. Overall, I pretty much use the watch for step and sleep tracking, as well as heart rate. It is nice to get notifications even when my phone is on silent. Occasionally I will play music directly from my watch, but I really need to find a better pair of Bluetooth headphones to take full advantage of that. I also use the timer and stop watch quite a bit. Other than that, I don't use too many of the apps. Many of them perform pretty much duplicate functions so maybe some space could have been freed up for other more impressive functions if those were cut back. It really is a decent watch for the price though!

    What not to do in the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

    Posted
    LeQue

    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.

    I have my Fit2 paired with my LGv20. After some trial and error and finally downloading the ALL of the apps required to make it work, I have found the smartwatch very useful. Most smart watches do a pretty good job of tracking and reporting activities. This one has an intuitive sense that identifies inactivity and when I have started or ended a workout. This helps me tremendously because i am not discipline in tracking and recording my own actions. the other initial challenge was it holding a charge. It would not last more than 12 to 14 hours without needing to be recharged. I let it charge for two days and since then have been able to go at least 2 days without having to recharge even though the watch is being used more and running more alerts. Another key factor, I switched from another name brand smartwatch and it left a mark/rash on my wrist where the contacts were. this watch has had no negative reactions to body contact. Only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because of the lack of clarity on setting up the watch for use. It is geared for samsung phones and leaves other phone types to be discovered through trial and error. I am also not sure why the charging issue was when i first bought the watch and then disappeared even though it said i was 100% charged.

    I had the previous Samsung Gear Fit 2 for about a year and totally loved it so when I heard the Fit 2 Pro was coming out, I had to go and upgrade. I definitely see the difference between the battery life of the old one and the new one. I charged mine Sunday afternoon and by Tuesday morning I was at 56%. This is without the Bluetooth connectivity on at all times. I would occasionally turn it on so it can update my stuff onto my Samsung Health app but I never have the Bluetooth on the whole time. With the old one, I would have to charge my battery every night. As far as usage, I get about 19k steps a day and do my own fair share of workouts throughout the day so it's not just me sitting on my desk. The auto workout detection kicks in a few times a day. I did notice that the new one is more accurate as far as tracking my steps and love how much more comfortable the new one feels on the wrist.

    My watch works as it was designed. Unfortunately, I had higher expectations. First, text messages are not saved on the watch at all. (They were saved on the older model I used to use.) Don't plan on looking up a text message on where or when to meet someone, you will have to use your phone.Only 5 of the 14 stock displays include the date, and the date is in very small type, which makes no sense since most of the display is wasted blank space. I bought a display with larger type that is basic but for me easier to glance at and read right away. I don't like the way you cant go back a screen without pressing a button. I preferred using the touch screen to go back. I worry that I will wear out the back-a-screen button faster than I could ever have worn out a touch screen. Gone is the basic calendar app that would let me see a month calendar. Now it seems I would have to buy a calendar main display, and that is not what I need or want. What I like is the display seems crisper/brighter even at low levels. It has many more types of activities it will track. I was surprised and like the inactivity tracker. The constant visibility of the step tracker and blood pressure monitors are fun. I probably won't use the digital storage space for music on the watch.

    I purchased a new Gear Fit 2 in July, 2018. It has some very nice features and claims to be water resistant to 50 meters. I received the watch and immediately registered it with Samsung. However, after wearing this watch for 2 weeks including swimming twice, the watch stopped working. Samsung was very efficient in transporting the watch back to the service center via UPS. I was then told that the watch had sustained water damage and was being returned with no compensation for my purchase. Through numerous phone calls and a letter to the Senior Vice President of U.S Customer Service, Michael Lawder, the answer in a phone call from a Samsung representative was the same. As soon as the consumer purchases this watch, any water damage is assumed to be due to the customer’s misuse of the watch and the “water resistant to 50 meters” warranty is null and void. If you’re planning on purchasing this watch, please get the Best Buy warranty, since Samsung will not stand by their warranty.

    The best thing about this I have found is the communication with my phone. I get notifications and information on the watch and that is handy. The fit portions are spotty. The stairs tracker doesn't seem to work. Several reviews and comments on that online. It does not do real time updates with the steps tracker on a phone. You have to ask for an update constantly. My old fitbit was much better with that. The software is pretty good. It is annoying some apps cannot be removed if you don't care to track things like water, food, calories or caffeine on your watch they are there in your way. While it could be improved a lot, the things I need work pretty well so I have been happy so far. It is comfortable. Battery life is fair but the energy saving mode helps. Apps available are limited. I cannot find any app that will let me control or get data from it on my iPad - that is a big downside. I have not found a way to active a do not disturb/ low energy/low light mode at a given time per day. So that means night time is some button pushing or it isnt worth wearing for the sleep modes.

    I purchased the original Gear fit 2 a few years ago. I love everything it did, but the wristbands would fall off sometimes and after 2 years eventually came separated from the electronic part. So, I decided to try out this Gear Fit 2 Pro. I've owned it for about 7 months now, wanted to make sure it had ample use before I left a review. They made a ton of improvements. The wristband now buckles and is very comfortable, it tracks everything more accurately, has more face options. The bonus on this one is that the battery lasts twice as long. I can wear it for 24 hours and not worry about it dying. I have people ask me about it all of the time. I'm super happy with my purchase.

    Love it! The only problem I have with it is that it's supposed to be usable in water. I had one previous to this. After a few months I decided to try it out lap swimming. I carefully set the water lock. After that it stopped working. Returned it to Samsung per their instructions and was advised that they could not fix it due to water damage and would not replace it even though it was less than a year old. They told me it was water RESISTANT not WATER PROOF. I bought another only because I like it so much. I will NOT be taking it in the pool. This time I bought the extra repair/replacement plan from Best Buy. I've recommended it to friends but advised them about NOT swimming with it. Also advised the folks at Best Buy so they can tell customers who are interested in this. If I had purchased the Best Buy repair/replacement plan the first time, Best Buy would have replaced it.

    band broke 4 weeks after I got it. defective part. It broke where the screws go into the plastic, cracked from being over tightened. i was wiping the band carefully with a microfiber cloth and it just fell apart in my hands. I absolutely loved this Mothers Day gift and was extremely gentle and over protective of it. Best Buy said sorry its past 14 days. Samsung said yes send it in we will fix it. After 10 days I get an email saying it was $70 for the band. I just got my watch back today, It is completely reset and the band isn't even put on! I have Samsung everything and love it. Never needed service before. I love the watch just do not send it to get the band done. I wish I had just bought a band off Amazon and been done with it. So why I love it, its a reality check. I know why I am not losing weight, It tells me everyday how much I didn't do LOL Had I written this review before the repair service I would give it 5 stars. That's why the low star rating but I would recommend. Watch is great, band and service suck.

    Good combination of smart watch & fitness tracker

    Originally I bought the FitBit Charge 3, but after just one week of having it, decided I wanted something with more features and a better interface. I looked at the latest high-end smart watches from Apple, Samsung, etc. but the price points were beyond what I wanted to spend. The Gear Fit2 Pro is a very good balance between those two ends of the spectrum. It tracks a variety of activities, has smart watch aspects, like getting text and email alerts that you can answer from the watch, and also has a wide range of apps, including weather. The comfort is close to the FitBit Charge 3 (which is the most comfortable fitness tracker I've ever had) and has similar aesthetics. The more I wear it, the happier I am I didn't get a bulky, expensive smart watch instead. One drawback is that it pretty much has to be charged every day, but then, so does my phone, so it's a minor inconvenience.
