In the digital age where technology and exercise collide, wearables have transformed society’s approach to fitness and have the ability to keep us informed, motivated and on track to accomplishing our fitness goals. To that end, Samsung just introduced the new Gear Sport smartwatch to their portfolio of wearables.
The Samsung Gear Sport
More than just a smartwatch, the Samsung Gear Sport (Price Check) is a personal fitness coach that helps users get the most out of everyday activities. It provides the ultimate all-round fitness experience, keeping track of daily movements and workouts systematically.
The Samsung Gear Sport (Price Check) is water resistant with a 5 ATM rating  and advanced swim tracking capabilities to measure key swim metrics for better results. With its sleek, ergonomic form that can be worn in a variety of colourful and easily changeable standard 20 mm straps, it is perfect for any occasion so users can effortlessly transition from the gym to a night out with friends.
The Gear Sport is also functional, allowing users to balance business and fitness needs anytime. Users can keep track of their work, such as replying emails, as well as their fitness goals simultaneously, all in one single device. Available in Blue and Black, it is equipped with Gear foundational functions that include a control of Samsung IoT-enabled devices through Samsung Connect and Samsung Pay capabilities.
 Gear Sport has ISO 22810:2010 certification for 5 ATM rating of 50 meters (165 feet) under specific conditions. This means that both devices are resistance to rain or shower and may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool. However, it should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth. If the device or your hands are wet, they must be dried thoroughly prior to handling.
