Latest news about Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Gear:

07.12.16. Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is an able fitness and activity tracker. The latest Samsung’s smartwatch Gear S3 looks like classic watch and has buit-in LTE and GPS. It's comfortable to wear, works on Tizen mobile OS and features 360 x 360 circular display with lots of functions. It can track all kinds of workouts (except for strength-training). Like the Apple Watch Series 2, it can track your run (or walk) via GPS on the smartwatch and then display the route in the Samsung Gear app on the phone. It’s also smart enough to auto-detect the kind of workout you’re doing. Samsung also added some water-resistance, 1 meter for 30 minutes (though you can't swim in it). Like the Apple Watch, the Gear S3 is often prodding you to get moving or praising for simply walking.

10.09.14. Apple Watch wants to dominate the market for fitness trackers. Apple unveiled its new smartwatch Apple Watch today and one of its main features is comprehensive health and fitness tracker. The Apple Watch will track your heart rate and measure three separate categories of movement. The first is the "Move" ring, which measures the calories you've burned and tells you when you've hit your personal goal for the day. The "Exercise" ring captures more brisk movement, and closes when you've put in 30 minutes total each day. The "Stand" ring measures how often you break from the sedentary reality of parking your butt in an office chair all day, and closes when you've gotten up for at least one minute in twelve different hours during the day. It pairs with the barometer in the newest iPhones to track your climbs and claims it will be able to distinguish the intensity of your activity to better track the calories you're burning.
