Working Great since S Health update!!!
from Denver CO
Comments about Samsung Gear Fit - Black:
I purchased the gear fit 2 days ago and it was not syncing with my S Health. I realized the issue was with S Health, so I called Samsung and was on the phone for roughly 45 minutes with 3 different agents. I almost took the Gear Fit back to Best Buy until I saw that Samsung planned an update to S Health to fix the issue. I woke up this morning and was so excited that the update worked! I love the design of the watch. It's not boring like other fitness watches. I will continue to be a loyal Samsung customer!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Promising Device wasted by poor execution
from New Delhi, Delhi, India
This device had the capability to become one of the best. But unfortunately, the limited connectivity of this device to other devices make this device almost useless. It does not work with android nor windows phone nor it is compatible to any desktops! Also, it does not work with many Samsung Phones too!!! I have wasted my money on this product I hope Samsung guys are listening!!! Samsung could have one of the devices but its wasted opportunity because of the limited compatibility of this device!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
the gear fit is a very good product however he could be improved by updating the software for the pedometer. If the software was updated to allow you to enter the length of your stride the pedometer would be more accurate.

Big downfall of the gear fit ,,,no internal memory to put and play mp3 music
I hope the next version of the gear fit has a internal memory to put mp3 music and play with out the smartphone , i bought this samsung gear fit because i like the bracelet look since i have a multifunction watch, i dont want to use the gear s or 2 watch look.but i was disapointed that the gear fit did not have internal memory to save and play music in it and use it with my blue tooth headset,

I work on the road a lot as an EMT and so far never had a problem with the product. Star5ed to work out and like how it tracks everything and syncs automatically with my Samsung phone.
A.......for effort but buy something else...!
View Image Gallery Samsung Gear Fit Smart Watch, Black A for effort but look elsewhere.......... By msp116 on Jan 26, 2015 OK This was a Christmas gift and started using religiously on 1/2/15 here is what I think so far...... PROS: Keeps good track of your heart-rate without having to wear band....but can be finicky if not on your on your wrist just right. Keeps track of your actual run time......just don't forget to stop it when your done running. Haven t used the sleep function. Screen is awesome as long as you change the orientation so you can read while running. Getting text on watch is OK but your probably not buying this to monitor your text messages or answer phone calls. CONS: Maybe its just mine but after reading a lot of reviews I think I'm definitely with the majority......the calorie counter is completely useless. On morning runs I don't get anywhere near what I should be burning and what's weird is that when I run in the evening its more accurate, but usually overshoots the mark see pics, and yes I have my stats put in height weight gender age I'm 6'1" 255 and know for a fact that I burn more than 360cal after running for 45min@6mph. see attached pics.....also notice on log screen about the only useful info it gives is how long you ran, I could care less about what time of the day I started running and the calories which are big and bold are useless and why wouldn't you put total miles? you would think that would be the one important thing you would like to know? Actual distance ran. If you use just the watch it usually overshoots your distance by as much as a mile sometimes I usually run 4mi. This has been verified by gps and other devices. I usually subtract a minimum of 30% to get accurate distance? The step counter is OK but is completely useless unless you remember to actually start it......where as every single other device you find does this automatically. Have only used GPS function once because you need your SAMSUNG phone and need to be outside. Even then its spotty. Junk: Yes I know that this really isn't a category, but feel it needs special attention.....The SOFTWARE S HEALTH. I have to admit I'm into programming so maybe I'm a little bias on this, but this software is total junk. Come on Samsung did you not even ask/test this before just putting it out. First of all the Gear Fit is not compatible with any other fitness software only S Health you would think that this would be open source so other software developers could at least try to put out something better. About the only thing it does accurately is keep track of your time and avg heart rate. Navigation is a nightmare lets say you run almost every day for a month and would like to know something simple like total miles ran, guess what, doesn't do that so you literally have to navigate through every day and add them up. Same with total calories same with avg run time? and even if it did this it would only be 50% accurate......I hate to say I will probably keep due to being a gift, this has been out for almost a year now and it seems like there has been little to no updates from Samsung not to sure of its future and with CES just ending over new products will be out soon.....unless some major improvement to firmware and software are made look elsewhere.

I would have given this product 5 stars however it is not compatible with myfitnesspal App which is a major App I use. Please Samsung add Gear Fit to my fitness pal!!!!
Don't know how I lived without it!
from Crofton, MD, USA
Went to one of the big electronics stores and looked at every fitness band. The Gear Fit was the only one that looked worth the money and had all the features I was looking for. It's screen is big enough to see messages easily and pairs seamlessly to my Galaxy phone all the time. You can still get away with wearing a nice leather/stainless banded dress watch on your other wrist without looking lame since the Gear Fit isn't oversized and doesn't look like a regular watch. Highly recommend a high grade screen protector/shield for the screen. Only feature I feel they could improve on is the Sleep Tracker function, I use that feature every night but it doesn't give too many details like some of the competition, a software update for the sleep function would be awesome. 5 stars though overall!
Great and Getting Even Better
from Fort Worth, TX
For a fitness tracker, the Gear Fit is ambitious. It doesn't have all of the features of the Gear smartwatch, but was designed to monitor physical activity. It does also allow users to view incoming text messages, and reply with saved responses you can customize yourself. You can also customize the background screen image. It also charges very quickly. I've had this for over 6 months, and it still attracts the attention of whoever is around. It's getting even better because the software is consistently improving -so I can see data today that I couldn't several months ago. I hope Samsung will continue to evolve the S Health software app (you view this on your phone), because I plan to keep the Gear Fit in daily use.
