New and Innovative
from Arcadia, CA, USA
Comments about Samsung Gear Fit - Black:
Gear fit is new and Innovative at first glance but the kinks still need to be worked out. I'm sure Samsung will fix and improve all short comings on this product in order to compete and maintain Samsung standards. Still a fun gadget to have, and make use of.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good while it lasted
I got the Gear Fit for my birthday in February and it worked great until the end of March. Then it went into a permanent boot mode. You can't shut it off or turn it on, it just continuously reboots. I enjoyed it while it worked, using the pedometer and the heart monitor. I also liked that I could get and send messages and screen calls. The kids I worked with thought it was cool. However, for the price, a month and a half of operation is not long enough. It is not worth the money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
It works fine. However, it chips around the face. Very disappointed. With this price I thought it would stand up better. Must be cheap metal. Guess it wasn't covered by warranty.
Love the design but not totally happy with the function
from Cincinnati, OH, USA
I have had my Gear Fit for over a week. I like it's looks. It fits on my wrist comfortably and it functions mostly well but I have several disappointments from what I expected. 1. I use my Gear Fit with the S Health app. The Gear Fit will track heart rate and distance traveled only for four categories of exercise, running, walking, hiking, and cycling. The S Health app has many more sports that is capable of tracking. I do not understand why the Gear Fit will only track those activities where you are traveling distances. Many workouts don't travel. Why can't I track my heart rate for these? 2. This best syncing interval is only three hours. Why can't I constantly sync? 3. When I try to do the transfer now sync, the app tells me I have to set up a profile, which I did a week ago. 4. The Gear Fit also does not measure stress level like I can using the S Health app. 5. I tried adding my own photo to the wallpaper list. I thought that was a cool feature until I realized you cannot change the color of the font for the clock and other info that overlays on the wallpaper. White is not a perfect color for everything. 6. I downloaded several apps, but have yet to figure out how to use them. And only two of them appear on the list in my Gear Fit. I hope Samsung will continue to work on this items functions and I look forward to investigating the next generation of Gear Fit. Waterproof would be nice to.

I love it
from Denver, CO
I was skeptical about the trend of smart watches. But started a new fitness plan and was looking for something to track my heartrate. I'm a die hard Samsung fan/user, so I knew I'd only try a Samsung smart watch. The Samsung Gear Fit has been a great addition to my fitness plan! I love all the other features as well... notifications, call decline responses, sleep tracking... even the ability to change the face wallpaper to match my outfits! I get tons of questions about it. Many iPhone/fitbit users are jealous of the look, cost and features. ;)

Samsung Gear Fit/with my Samsung S4
from Maryland, USA
beside the benefits of keeping time and keeping track of my walking there was an additional feature that I hadn't thought of. where I work I have to be quiet and I can now receive calls without disturbing anyone else. My phone also vibrates but I don't usually notice it when I am busy. I always notice the one on my arm. I also use it to keep track of my sleep and heart rate. I checked it on my last visit to the Dr and the numbers match with what the Dr got. although my phone also comes with a pedometer I do a lot of walking when I have forgotten my phone. also I am surprised how many people notice it as well as complimenting me.
It A Eye Catcher!
from Atlanta, GA
It's pretty kewl since the latest update! I added a white band and I get alot of attention because of that! I like the step counter and the updated sleep function. I still have to manually put it into sleep mode, but I am pretty much program to do so. it's not the best tracker on the market, but it's not the worst either!
from Jackson, MI
Great product! Syncs easily with the Samsung galaxy S5 and s health app. Would like it to sync with more apps like runkeeper. I was looking at different smart watches for awhile now. This does a lot more with my phone which I like and you can check your heart rate. Reasonably priced for all that it does.
Was perfect until...
from Ohio, USA
I changed out my Fit Bit because this one had more features. The main reason I use it is for the phone and text features. The problem is, after 4 weeks it stopped reconnecting with my phone. This makes it useless. I have missed many text and calls due to the Gear being disconnected. It was GREAT when it worked properly.
