Gear Fit2 Software is Focusing on Training


Samsung is launching an update for the Gear Fit 2 sports band in order to make tracking fitness progress more intuitive and effective.

Samsung's Gear Fit2 allows users to 'sweat smarter' by tracking a wide range of exercises and providing insights to help you take charge of your fitness. The GPS sports band's latest software update strengthens its heart-rate and exercise-tracking abilities and adds new ways for users to maximize their training.

Once a user completes an exercise with their Gear Fit2, for instance, listed among their post-workout stats will be a color-coded graph displaying time spent in various heart-rate zones. Broken down by level of exertion - 'Moderate', 'Vigorous' and 'Maximum' - the chart takes the user's maximum heart rate into account to provide a simple rundown of the exercise's efficiency.

Automatic activity detection has also been enhanced. Whenever a user exercises for more than ten minutes, the Gear Fit2 automatically activates its fitness-tracking functions. With the new update, the map displayed after a user completes an auto-tracked workout will also inform them of their approximate location.

To help users get in the zone during runs, the update also incorporates support for customizable pace targets. Simply input your desired distance and time via the Samsung Health smartphone app to build a workout tailored help you reach your running goals. Users may choose between runs designed to help burn fat or increase cardiovascular endurance, and select an intensity level that works for them. After establishing a target, the device will guide users through each stage of their exercise.

The update also lets users customize the information that's displayed during workouts. The device offers a clear view of an array of useful workout data, including distance traveled, calories burned, the duration of an exercise, and the user's heart rate. To adjust the data that's prominently displayed, swipe across the Gear Fit2's screen. A tap on the bottom of the screen will be displayed there additionally.

For users who need a little nudge now and then to get on their feet, 50 minutes of inactivity will prompt the Gear Fit2's inactive alerts screen, which provides walkthroughs of simple stretches that can help you get back on track.

Of course, getting the most out of a workout requires getting a good night's rest afterward, which is why the Sleep Record notification offers users deeper insight into their personal sleep patterns.

Included with the evening's sleep total is a simple multicolored graph that breaks down 'Restless', 'Light' and 'Motionless' sleep and informs you of how much time you spent in each zone. Users have the option to view their sleep data directly on their device, or via the Samsung Health app on their smartphone.

Other additions include the ability to send quick SOS alerts with your location by triple pressing the Gear Fit2's Home key, and browse and download watch faces directly to the device, as well as via the Samsung Gear app.

You can download the Gear Fit2's latest software update via Samsung Gear app.
