Samsung Launches New Gear IconX Earbuds With Improved Design

31 August 2017

But hey, if you just need a metric for identifying the differences in intensity and duration of your exercise each day, it will probably suffice.

Gear Sport is a bold, brightly coloured fitness tracker that's shaped like a clock face and is jam packed full of features including flicking through TV channels, control presentation slides and the usual smartphone functions like messaging and email. However, Samsung insists you'll look just as appropriate in the gym with the Gear Sport, as you would at a night club. Still, not even the latest Gear S3-one of the best smartwatches on the market-was enough to put Samsung in the conversation with Apple on the smartwatch side, or Fitbit on the fitness side. Again, there's 4 GB of internal room, paired with a dual-core processor.

Each earbud has its own 4GB of storage, 82mAh battery, and weighs 8g. It contains the same 4GB of storage as the Gear Sport, but only 512MB RAM, instead of 768MB.

Now that we have the specs out of the way, let's talk about their features. -- New Capabilities for Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro: ● Industry-Leading Water Resistance and Swim Tracking: An ideal companion for any swim - from laps to playing in the pool - these devices are 5 ATM certified for water resistance. There's no MST technology here, so it will only work with NFC terminals. It features an industry-leading 150 watts of suction power and 40-minutes of battery time-twice as long as traditional batteries-with a battery lifespan of five years. But the big upgrade from the standard Gear Fit2 is the advanced built-in Global Positioning System here. While the original Gear IconX has poor battery life, the company has substantially improved it with the new earbuds. Samsung has partnered with Under Armor and Speedo to bring their fitness apps and functionality to the watch. That makes both of these fitness trackers great for those that do a lot of swimming. Samsung said it's good for salt and freshwater. The new watch features built-in heart rate monitoring, does swim tracking (it also has a 5ATM water resistance rating) and takes advantage partnership with Under Armour to offer up a variety of different fitness and sleep tracking apps.

And finally, the new Gear IconX 2018.

Turner says he did so in response to an overwhelming number of calls from people around the country who are eager to help. The Red Cross honors donor intent, and your donation will be designated specifically to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The biggest differences here between the Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro is really the form factor.

Samsung has also announced Samsung Gear Sport at IFA along with Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro. Pre-orders start tomorrow with the units shipping on September 15th.

Perhaps one of the most useful upgrades with the Gear Sport is a new selection of fitness programs that come with video tutorials. Interestingly, this isn't a Gear S4, or anything that would suggest we're looking at a direct successor to the S3. The Gear Sport, for example, is a Samsung Gear smartwatch built for the wear and tear of sports.

Samsung continued to revolutionise the visual display industry at IFA 2017, with the release of a new 43-inch version of The Frame that was first unveiled earlier this year. The wireless earbuds enable users to store music offline so that they can continue to listen even when they're offline.
