Don’t mess with a good thing.

Though it didn’t get as much fanfare as the Gear S2 and S3 in the last two years, the Gear Fit 2 was quietly one of the best all-around fitness trackers available since it was introduced in mid-2016.

Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung’s Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Icon X are all variations of designs we’ve seen before. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung’s outdoor smartwatch I reviewed last year.
