HTC Re Grip vs Samsung Gear Fit
Desire can be measured. Its units are time, distance and speed. And the more desire you put in, the more your training gives back. Track every minute, mile and rep.
The Samsung Gear Fit was designed to comfortably contour to consumers’ wrists while offering a vivid Super AMOLED display. It provides much more than an everyday fitness band, keeping consumers up to date instant notifications from Galaxy smartphones such as incoming calls, emails, SMS, alarm, S-planner, 3rd party apps while consumers are on the move so they can stay connected. Changeable straps in Black, Orange and Mocha Grey will let users express their individual style, changing the look of the Gear Fit to match their outfit or mood for any type of activity.
Latest news about HTC Re Grip and Samsung Gear Fit:
04.03.15. HTC targets fitness fanatics with its first wearable, the HTC Re Grip. HTC is getting into fitness wearables, with a fitness band, drawing on a strategic partnership it announced earlier this year with fitness gear maker Under Armour — who will be supplying the tracking software that the band hooks into. HTC’s first wearable, Grip wrist band is being positioned as a ruggedized, water resistant wearable for athletes and sports oriented folk, rather than as a general step tracker to motivate people who don’t move very much (although it does do step tracking). Different types of activity will be trackable, from walking to cycling to gym sessions. The Grip has a pedometer and GPS, the latter being relatively rare for fitness wristbands — although Microsoft’s fitness band includes GPS, as do more fully featured sports watches — along with Bluetooth Low Energy so it can hook into additional fitness devices, such as a heart rate monitor, for more granular tracking.
25.02.14. Samsung unveiled own fitness wristband Gear Fit. Samsung Gear Fit is the most promising wrist wearable to date. The Gear Fit has all the typical fitness-tracker accoutrements: It can monitor exercise and sleep, it has a built-in pedometer and heart-rate monitor, and it has a stopwatch and a timer. The real plus, however, is that it can also talk to your phone.The Gear Fit can display calls, e-mails, app alerts and get push notifications. The Gear Fit has a curved Super AMOLED display, which Samsung says is the first for a device like this. Having touch support helps the Gear Fit stand apart from some other fitness trackers that rely on buttons.
