Designed with military-level durability, it can handle a wide-range of environments.

In addition to the new swim and heart rate monitoring capabilities, the new Gear Fit2 Pro features built-in GPS tracking to capture your run or ride with activity tracking. Gear Fit2 Pro's Super AMOLED curved 1.5-inch display and a high-resolution color touchscreen make real-time updates and notifications easier to read. The new band is light weight and comfortable to use for all activities. It is available in Black and Red.

IconX cord-free earbuds let you listen to music.
