Also, the Samsung Galaxy Fit is finally arriving today, after announce back at Galaxy S10 event of Samsung. In the meantime, I have even wearing $99 tracker on my wrist for a little over 24 hours. Forever, how does it compare to affordable Fit bit or another new fitness watch of Samsung? Moreover, the Galaxy Watch Active, it feels in a lot of ways, and like it falls right in between.
The Galaxy Fit also feels more like a lightweight, budget fitness tracker than round, and higher-design Galaxy Watch. Further, it is an evolution of longer-display bands of Samsung going back to Gear Fit. Furthermore, to despite its lower-key look and it has some impressive specs. Moreover, the remarkable specs: it is 5ATM water resistant, has onboard heart rate. In the meantime, the stress level of Samsung tracking seems a little unreliable automatic sleep tracking, and automated activity workout tracking plus phone notifications.
Galaxy Fit vs. Fit bit Inspire HR
The closest parallel also in Fit bit-land is the Fit bit Inspire HR, which also costs $99. In the meantime, the Inspire HR also has water resistance for swimming, sleep tracking, heart rate, and notifications. Moreover, it has a black and white screen instead of a color screen. But, in another way, it is pretty similar.
The Galaxy Fit also band is thin, feels like as firm rubber, and has proprietary connections. Further, it feels comfy on my wrist and attached firmly, while maybe it is a bit too slim. Furthermore, the included charger magnetically attaches to the back of the Fit. Moreover, the navigation on the Galaxy Fit happens through touching and swiping. In the meantime, it works fine; while it is not always easy to do when moving or the text is small.
A side button also goes back to the main watch display, or quick play a workout when pressed and held: this is my favorite thing that it does that, and the Fit bit Inspire HR does not. Moreover, I also like Samsung fitness devices automatic tracking of walks, workouts, and how stats instantly appear onscreen. On a brisk walk, I am in workout tracking mode without doing anything.
Galaxy Fit vs. Galaxy Watch Active
The Galaxy Fit does not also have music storage or playback, any mobile payments, GPS. They also dedicated swim tracking or integration with third-party fitness apps like as the Galaxy Watch Active has. That’s why where the Fit becomes a weird selection. Furthermore, the Galaxy Watch Active is right. But it does not cost all that much ($200). To spending an extra hundred is not absurd at all.
The Fit also feels pretty basic compared to the Watch Active, which is my biggest concern with it. Moreover, the battery life supposed to a week of versus about 4-5 days on Inspire HR. In the meantime, I have not worn it long enough to know what the real battery life is.
Should you buy it?
When you are budget conscious, want that smaller band design, and like Samsung hardware. So, the Galaxy Fit may be the right choice. While, I still think the Fit bit Inspire HR hooks into a far best social fitness ecosystem with Fit bit, which is why you had the best off with them instead. When you are also a massive Samsung S-Health fan and the Gear Fit may something you preferred.
The most significant advantage of Samsung tends the unique hardware features, and those are mostly on the Watch Active.
