I wish it tracked other exercises like the Stair Master or Elliptical
from Lemoore, CA 93245, USA
Comments about Samsung Gear Fit - Black:
I wish it tracked other exercises like the Stair Master or Elliptical. Other than that I really like the design and heart monitor as well as the sleep monitor. If they add the other exercises it will be perfect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

really like gearfit, but too easy to lose
from Louisville, ky
I really enjoyed my gear fit and showed everyone the cool features, but after loosing 2. I can't recommend it to anyone. I lost one because the band became lose after a few months and fell off. The next one popped out the band and was lost some where during my travels. Cool features but too easy to lose.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love, love, love it.
from Florida, USA
I was wanting a wearable device that would track my steps without having my S5 on me all the time. I liked the larger "made for men" watches but they were just too big and bulky for my arm. I received a "Fitbit" from my work and it worked fine but if I'm going to wear something on my arm I wanted a watch. I also love all the other features it gives me. Now, my husband want's me to hurry up and upgrade my S5 phone, he always gets my hand-me-downs, so he can have my watch. I told him he would have to get the big bulky one, I was staying with Samsung and it would work with my new phone when I get one...lol Thank you Samsung for such a great product!
Kind of a fun gadget, but does not calculate distance accurate.
from Yuma, Arizona
I received it as a gift and love the look and all the functions, however using the pedometer on my wrist does not calculate the correct steps. I have tried using it on my hip and it calculates the steps very accurate there but I wanted a wrist device. Hmmmmm. I have tried the exercise portion and found the exact results - not accurate. I am walking and hiking with a friend who is also using a pedometer and have something to compare to so that is how I know mine is incorrect. I don't want to give up so will to do some more research on settings and carry on. Love the different bands you can get for them.

I love it. I used to never wear a watch, but don't know how I got by without it. It's nice to be able to walk away from my phone and still have messages push to me.

I love but wish

I love my gear fit but wish it would connect to My Fitness Pal! I have used the My Fitness Pal for years and would love to be able to connect and continue using! Please looking into this!
a neat concept but needs work
from Cochrane, Alberta
After purchasing the Gear for my husband, I thought the Fit would be better suited for my lady wrist. The style is sleek and thinner. I am only reviewing this to try and give Samsung some feedback. I have been wearing it now for several months. The positives- caller ID. I have the Samsung Note phone and so it often gets put in the diaper bag and is not easily accessible. This is a handy feature so I know when someone is calling and dig for the phone sooner. I like the text notifications. The quick reply back is limited. Not enough selection an you can only input a few of your own. But at least I can view them. The weather is handy...and the correct time since it's blue toothed to the phone. NEGATIVES...The fit part of this watch. It doesn't accurately count steps. I often walk with a stroller and if my arms aren't moving/swinging...it doesn't detect . The exercise part of this watch is pathetic. It only gives the options of walking, running, hiking or biking. I'm assuming because these are all GPS traceable and will track distance if you are doing all of the above outside. However if you are...say...doing a Spin class on a stationary bike, it doesn't track a thing. I think this part needs a lot of work. There is much more to exercise than these sports and outdoor fitness. I even tried to track a walk when I was at a resort on holidays and we were doing a lot of walking. However if you are stopped for any length of time, it stops. The heart rate monitor also needs work. If I'm doing a fitness class and want to monitor my heart rate...I have to stop and stand still, remove the sweat off the inside of the watch so it will detect...and even then it says it can't be detected. So unless you want a resting heart rate, you're out of luck with this pathetic heart rate monitor. The sleep mode is kind of neat. You can track hours of sleep. However I'm not consistent in using it because I have to charge the watch at least every other night. I am a good candidate for this watch as I have the Samsung phone and I'm also very active. However I had to buy a watch that had a better heart rate monitor that straps around the chest and will accurately measure calories and continue to measure heart rate as you work out. I also use the amazing myfitnesspal app, that Samsung should be affiliated with, to track food eaten and all my activity and calories burned. Much more work needed. Too bad the watch wasn't like a phone or app where updates could be done to improve performance.
Love this Product just needs a Few more Features!
from Urbana, IL, USA
I really love this Samsung Gear Fit. It's light weight it works well with my Samsung Galaxy s5. Just wish it would work better with a few more feature. 1 in the HEALTH Dept. since it does your Heart Rate it would be great if it did your Oxygen level as well since they work off the same dept. Plus I also wish this device would answer my phone calls for me & make my go to speaker phone for me especially when I am driving down the road it would be very helpful in that dept. Other than I think it a great device for people with medical needs. I still have not figured out how to use a lot of things on this device, wish there was somebody around here locally to show me how to use it more & more to make it more enjoy able to me.
Very good product...
I've had the Gear Fit for about one week. The heart rate monitor is excellent and fairly accurate. The pedometer is good, but I haven't had it long enough to evaluate its accuracy. I work in an building where phone service becomes very weak. However, I can now leave the phone in covered, discreet area near a window, and will instantly receive notification of a text or call. The Bluetooth range is very good. The downside is that now many apps are available to fully customize the display and usability of this watch. I'd like to change the font color of the clock and other function, but I guess this is expected in the early stages of development. Highly recommended product, nonetheless!
Good smartwatch but not fitness tracker
from Bangkok, Thailand
this is really a smartwatch and I love this feature. But the fitness tracker part is truly a miss. Pedometer count is way high than the real count, as well as the kilometer count in running. I wish Samsung will have software updates soon to correct this.
