Comments about Samsung Gear Fit - Black:
Expected much better performance based on experience with other Samsung Products over many years. Negatives: when swipe from display to another display and try to choose new option it reverts back to previous display - must repeat action several times before desired option displays. Power runs out quickly without adequate warning to recharge and how do you recharge in the middle of a busy day/calendar when you started the day at 100% and don't have a lengthy break-. Date and time do not always display accurately when display. Pedometer is very inaccurate - seriously under tracking actual steps and mileage.Band is difficult to secure to arm. positives: attractive design; timer and stopwatch features are handy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A good fitness watch for the minimalist
The gear fit is a good tool for the minimalist. It doesn't have all the features that you may want in fitness watch, but it has all the basic functionality that you need. The gear fit adds a nice touch of simplicity to my workouts, allowing me to keep track of my lap times, heart rate, and makes it easier for me to take consistent breaks between sets with the timer function. One of the main features that I use is the media controller because not only does it make it easier to control my music while I workout, it also makes controlling my music in the car much easier and safer as I no longer have to look down at my phone to switch songs, instead I can keep my eyes on the road. The gear fits functionality combined with the data stored in the gear fit manager app make it just as useful as any other fitness watch I have owned. It also has a "find my device" function which calls your phone if you ever misplace it, which definitely comes in handy. All that plus a substantial battery life and reasonable price make for an all-in-all good investment
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I primarily use my Gear Fit to track my heart rate while running. However, I wear it throughout the day and get lots of inquiries. I'm surprised by how few people have heard of it. I've compared it to my chest strap, and the two devices are only a few BPMs apart. My Gear Fit has been very reliable and the features are exactly what I was looking for in a smartwatch. Would love more detailed heart rate info (charts/graphs) so I get a better sense of the range/peaks during workouts, or if Samsung would open up heart rate info to other fitness apps like Endomondo or Strava.
Things it does, it does well
I bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for my girlfriend. After a couple months we have a good handle on them and what they can do. For me, I bought them to track our sleep. I also liked that they tracked fitness and worked will with our Samsung Galaxy S6's. Unfortunately, the exercise options they can track are severely limited to Walking, Running, Hiking, and Cycling. With Cycling your phone has to be paired and nearby to track with the GPS. I wish that the Gear Fit could track every activity you can track with the Samsung S Fitness app. Specifically, I play both basketball and hockey and it can basically only track the steps for the pedometer and the heart rate. I wish that Samsung had continued system development for these devices. Unfortunately the Samsung Gear Fit doesn't run Tizen like most of the rest of Samsung Wearables. This makes it a hard platform to write independent applications for since the platform is not open. You can write companion apps to run alongside the phone, but no native apps. I would have also liked an inactivity reminder function on the Gear Fit.
Just what I wanted
from Boise, ID, USA
I was not looking for a full function smart watch and I am glad I got this one. This does everything that I was wanting. Having to just look at the watch to see who is calling is nice when I am working. It's easier to look at my wrist than to stop working and grab the phone. I love how it syncs with the S health app on the phone. So if you are looking for something to assist your phone then this is it.
Excellent, As Expected
from Canton, OH
I bought this for my wife. I initially bought her the Samsung Gear 2 Neo but she didn't like the large size. The Samsung Gear Fit does everything it's advertised to do and I have had no problems with it. She really likes it. All my electronic devices are Samsung, which includes TVs, DVD players, computer monitors, Blu-ray players, cell phones and Surround Sound. I wouldn't think of buying any other brand.

Watch works fine, (power button alittle small and awkwardly placed... charging cradle is a pain) until 5 months later .. reboot loop hits and that is all the watch will do. Too much money to spend on Technology that will not last

Great product only a few suggestions
from Edmond, OK, USA
I love it, it has worked great for me. Only things I would suggest is more options for the clock, both vertical and horizontal. Would like to be able to customize the clock ie. The font color or moving it higher or lower. Also if you download a clock from the play store I would like to be able to change the background pic but keep the clock.

Love my Gear Fit!
from Pine City, NY
This is the second one I have purchased. I was disappointed when the first one I bought died after a few short months. I had purchased it refurbished, which I will not do again. The only thing two things I struggle with are that the heart rate monitor doesn't always work, particularly when I sweat (which is one of the reasons I bought it to begin with...to track my target heart rate) and the mileage is not always accurate (I have measured my running routes with both MapMyRun and my car).
