    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.)

    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.

    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.

    I was never a watch wearer until my husband got this one for me. I hated having stuff on my wrist but I've quickly adapted and feel lost without it on. Pairs to my phone perfectly. Can control music, check weather and your events (whatever is on your calendar on your phone). My battery lasts about 2 full days, depending on how much it's used (How many texts and whatnot throughout the day). They changed the band on this model from the Gear Fit 2 (I had that one first) and it's so much better. This is like a normal watch band so it doesn't accidentally pop open like the old model. You can download different screen displays. I track workouts and can quick message reply to texts. At night of I'm not charging it I'll set it on "Do not disturb" so it doesn't vibrate if I get a notification and doesn't turn the face on if I lift my hand but will still vibrate for alarms. It's not to heavy or bulky. It's a perfect watch for me.

    I've been wanting a fitness tracker so I don't always have to carry my phone to measure my activity, but it took me a while to finally bite the bullet. I wanted one that syncs with the S Health app on my Galaxy S9, and I've read mixed reviews on various trackers. I ended up ordering this one because I figured it was the most likely to sync seamlessly with another Samsung product. I am really happy with its functionality. I'm even using some functions that I had not expected to use, like sleep tracking. And it's nice looking to boot, not too bulky. I bought various bands for it and they all look nice, but I really like the look of the white band with the black/red Gear Fit. So far (one month) I've had no problems with it. I'm surprised at how quickly it charges, too.

    I had the original about a year and finally died the day the Fit2 was released. I love it! not only is it elegant, it's an Apple watch with class. :) The battery life is better than the original by a day or two. Has lots of options to personalize it to one's own style. Waterproof, and love the Black/Red combo. The only drawback is the size. I had the original one in large and it was just a little bigger than I would have liked. So I went with the small. Well, the small is almost too small. I'm an average size guy 5.8' 145 and it goes between the 2nd and 3rd notch from the end of the band. if I gain any weight, I'd be having to use the last notch in the strap. Overall, it's great. Tracks all my activities and having notification pop up on it is awesome when trying to be discreet

    I have had multiple fitbit watches (most recently Surge) and had issues with all. Surge band had to replace four times. Anyway, this watch is easy to use, navigate and intuitive. Lightweight and love the watch face. Heart rate is as accurate as I have ever had - I use a heart rate strap and another iphone app most times for cardio - so it is an accurate benchmark. Only downside is battery life and doesn't have a "weights" option for exercise. Otherwise has everything! Absolutely love it! It compliments my Samsung Gear S3 on other wrist (took too long to get to the exercise options for me).

    First I am a Samsung fan. My last 3 phones are Samsung Galaxy 3, 6, and 8+. I have a Tab S2 8" and 9.7". I had the Gear Fit and Gear Fit 2 watches. My needs are simple. The watch is comfortable, has a beautiful screen and does what I need. I track my steps daily and hours of sleep. I also monitor some notifications (text/email) on the watch. I track a daily walk and sometimes a hike. i used to track floors but that function does not seem to work as well after 1 year. I don't care about the heart monitor. I sync with Samsung Health app. I plan to stick with Samsung for my fitness watch.

    I purchased this watch not knowing exactly how i was going to feel about it. Come to find out i love it it's good to keep track of your weight lost, miles ran, heart rate, reminders, and most importantly i can control my music without taking out my phone. Now how cool is that! It has alot more great points but i don't want to lose your interest with all my talking so hey go out ther and grab yourself one. If not for yourself for someone else. Oh and did i mention it's water proof aswell.

    I said on my phone review that I am a fan of Samsung products. I have a phone, 2 tablets and the gearfit. I had the previous Samsung fitness watches and they keep getting better. I am new to fitness the last couple of years (in my late 50's) so my needs are simple. I track my steps and my sleep. I use Samsung Health on my phone so it updates there. I like that I can see text messages (and other notifications) and it is customizable. Some complain about battery life but I just charge mine every night when i am watching TV and it lasts 24 hrs - no problem. I don't really try to get multiple day usage.

    Nice Fitness Tracker

    More features than the previous version of this watch. Although you can now use it to track swimming, I'm reluctant to use it in the pool. I just don't know how waterproof it really is. But great for tracking daily activity, exercise and also sleep cycles. Easy to sync with my Samsung Galaxy S9. "Find my phone" feature works great! Great for text and email notifications. (Although any responses you send are limited to the preset ones in the watch.) Nice size - not bulky. Great color & graphics. Battery lasts a couple of days. Very satisfied and would recommend.

    Best watch I could have picked

    I love this watch! It picks up on the exercises, on all my movements and the reminder to get up and move is very helpful. The band is comfortable to wear, though my only complain would be that the watch itself is a little big for my wrist but it is still comfortable to have on. I enjoy that the watch charges quickly as well. I usually can put it on the charger and within 30 minutes it is fully charged back up. The best quality to me is the fact that I can leave my phone behind and use the watch to listen to music with my Bluetooth headphones when I am working out. Like I said, I love this watch!!!

    Got this for my wife so she would have a watch that could track swimming as well as the usual functions. For the price, there is no other smart watch I'm aware of that does as much. She's been eyeing the nicer looking Samsung watches since then, but they're at least $200 more than what I paid for this. Seems to be a decent amount of apps available. If you're tied into Samsung's product line it's probably an even better experience. The screen is also a stand out on this watch, nice and bright with clear graphics.

    Honestly I upgraded but am unsure of the big differences between the gear fit and gear pro 2. They are both small watches het fit me perfectly. I use this watch everyday. I only take if off if I'm going to a special event and have to change my look. I like all of the features it has for working out. and it does not die very frequently. I should say I played more with this watch than the previous model. which may be why I enjoy it a little bit more.

    Best all-in-one smart watch/fitness tracker

    This device is great for the person looking for an all-in-one. It has some of the best fitness tracking out there and also connects well with my Samsung Note 8. The only thing I wish it had was more features when it comes to connecting to my phone. While I receive text and email notifications, other devices (like the Michael Kors smart watches) let you compose text/email right on the device. This device only lets you respond with canned messages. Not awful, but could be better. But the fitness tracking portion of this device is great and lacks for nothing!

    I've had a Gear Fit 2 for 2 years and have loved it. After seeing how much I've loved mine, my wife wanted one too. I bought this one for her for Christmas and she loves it. It's been great for when she's got her hands full with the kids and can with a quick glance see who is calling, check texts, emails or notifications. It's been great in the snow, at the pool and around the house for her busy on the go lifestyle. The only thing that we wish they had was the ability to take a call directly through the watch, but for a small fitness band style watch it's 10/10.

    My husband purchased this for me for my birthday and I haven't stopped finding new and cool things to love about it. I love the sleep tracking - actually lets me know how restless or deep I sleep, it monitors my heart rate throughout the day. I can change the face of the watch to hundreds of different styles and colors! Tracks coffee, water, calories, etc. and best of all when I'm walking in the City it tracks how fast i'm walking and maps my runs. I just can't say enough - there are many more features that I am leaving out, but this is definitely a recommendation!

    I'd spoken with the Fitbit Associate and had one ready to buy in my hand, until I seen the Gear Fit 2 Pro! Omg the screen is curved with great looking quality and Soo many options! It was a no brainer on putting the Fitbit back, for the same price.. Waterproof, Notifications, you can send messages from it, still link your headphones from it so you Don't have to choose watch or headphones only from phone. Sad part is I purchased as a gift, and I really wanted it for myself lol. If your a desk worker, your key strokes could be counted as steps, do your research.

    This watch was bought as a gift for our daughter. She is an avid swimmer and wanted a Fitbit Style watch that had the ability to be submerged in water and worn while swimming. This watch fits the bill and is very affordable for what it offers. The calorie burn count tracking portion is spot-on and helps our daughter stay in tune with her health. The built-in heart rate monitor is an awesome feature as well. You would be hard-pressed to find a better watch at this price point that has all the features that this watch does.
