Latest news about Polar Loop and Samsung Gear Fit:
18.07.15. Activity tracker Polar Loop 2 adds notifications . Polar just released a brand-new version of its activity tracker, the Loop 2 that now competes directly with the Fitbit Charge and Jawbone Up. Like its predecessor, the Loop 2 is all about passively tracking your activity during the day — it’s not just for when you’re running. It comes with an LED display very reminiscent of Nike’s FuelBand to display your activity. But this time, the display can also show your phone notifications, and the band vibrates. It’s not ideal, as it seems the Loop 2 can only display a few letters at a time, but it should be enough to get caller ID on your wrist and see if you should bother looking at your phone. It can also act as a silent alarm clock on your wrist, gently vibrating in the morning. It costs $120.
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.
