Samsung/Speedo Deal Intros Swim Tracking To New Gear Devices

Sony sign at IFA

The device is smaller that the Samsung Gear S3 which was released a year ago at this event. That nearly started to change with the radically improved Gear S2, and then the S3 following it: smartwatches which introduced the rotating bezel as a key interface and design element.

The Gear Fit 2 Pro will set you back US$199, with pre-orders open tomorrow and on-sale date of September 15, though we're still waiting on those details for the Gear Sport. We'll update this article as soon as we know more. It has a 1.5-inch curved AMOLED display with a 216×430 resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. With its sleek, ergonomic form that can be worn in a variety of colorful and easily changeable standard 20mm straps, it is ideal for any occasion so you can effortlessly transition from the gym to a night out with friends.

What the Gear Fit 2 Pro really has over dedicated smartwatches, even the Gear Sport, is a much smaller footprint when you're wearing it. This means that both devices are safe to wear while walking in the rain or showering, and may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean.

Lions resign Stafford to 5-year extension
There has been media and fan speculation about the terms of Stafford's next deal, a mystery that came to an end Monday night. Since then, the eight-year veteran has posted over 30,000 passing yards, 187 touchdowns and 108 interceptions.

Get ready for swimmers to talk SWOLF, a new Swim efficiency measure too - that score is obtained through time-trials using the Speedo On enabled devices. Available in Black and Red, its versatile design also makes it a stylish accessory. Samsung says 10mins of charging through the case will give you battery enough to last you 1h of exercises.

The Gear Sport follows the design cues laid down by the Gear S3 past year, though it's a little thinner and smaller, with a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display running at a 360 x 360 pixel resolution. The Gear Fit2 Pro also comes with heart rate sensor, gyroscope and barometer.

Keeping track of how many lengths you've done should be a cinch, thanks to a dedicated Speedo swimming app, which can count lap times and record which stroke you're using too. The Samsung Gear Sport comes with MIL-STD-810G certification and water-resistant up to 5 atmospheres (about 50 meters). It contains the same 4GB of storage as the Gear Sport, but only 512MB RAM, instead of 768MB. They connect with Bluetooth 4.2 and each battery in the earbud is 82mAh. The new watch features built-in heart rate monitoring, does swim tracking (it also has a 5ATM water resistance rating) and takes advantage partnership wth Under Armour to offer up a variety of different fitness and sleep tracking apps. The new Gear IconX 2018 fitness earbuds come in Black, Gray, and Pink color options.
