This is a really big improvement over the previous model.
I really liked the form factor of the original Gear Fit2. It was comfortable on the wrist and the curved screen looked good and felt form fitting. Unfortunately, It had that ridiculous push clasp like so many of these wearables came with (some still do) when the perfect answer had always been the standard watch band. The Gear Fit2 Pro has adopted the standard watch band and it'so much better. It won't catch on something and sneak off your wrist. That never happened to me but I'd heard stories from others where it had. It's also nice to not have to push in that odd clasp. That odd clasp could be lost too.
Features and Functions:
The Gear Fit2 was also a no-go in the shower. Frankly, what is the point of an IP rating if it's below the threshold of shower safety. There were so many conflicting messages on this too. Some claimed that exposing to a shower may not kill it but it can wreak havoc with some of the sensors. I agree with the sensor damage. My Fit2, after being left on in the shower, was unable to come close to accurately measuring "Floors". If I climbed one flight of stairs sometimes it wouldn't register and other times it would register 10 or 20 floors. Ultimately, the fact that I could not use it for swimming and the loss of floor counting accuracy is why I switched to a Garmin Vivosmart HR.
The Fit2 Pro can go swimming with you. It can track your swim in several ways. It comes with a Speedo app that I tried out today. My pool is 32' long and that is about the minimum length you can set it for to measure laps (10 meters). After you set that, you can set your workout to time or distance and once it starts, it locks the screen so it will not be affected until you finish. My first test today was accurate to 10 meters and it successfully measured my laps. It is supposed to measure strokes as well but I have not tried it. I'll update this review when I've tried it.
The Fit2 pro is accurate using my stairs. It claims to count a floor every 10 feet which I found to be true with one caveat. If I climbed one flight, instantly turned around and came down, it did not register. However, if I walked at least 4-5 steps at the top of the flight, it did. Every time. It also registered if I went up 2 or 3 flights the same way- also taking a few steps at the flight where I stopped. If I turned around instantly and began going back down, it would not count the last flight.
I like that it does not need to be connected to the phone for Spotify but of course, it does need to be connected to WiFi but just to download music. There is enough total memory for 500 songs (give or take)
It also has a lot more built-in exercises (including indoor rowing) which the Gear Fit2 did not come with natively but a later software update included it. For most of these, it only counts HBPM and duration.
It does recognize when you are beginning an exercise and will begin tracking automatically. You can also set it to turn on GPS automatically when you begin a workout.
It came with plenty of watch faces including two new ones. There were dozens more available in the online store if you want something different.
So far the specs and features ring true to promises. I have the "auto on" for GPS and have been fiddling with it a lot and the battery life is down a third after one full day. The continuous HR reading keeps updating. I've tested the audio player with my LG Tone Platinum's and it all works- even offline listening.
I think they've caught all the features and functionality along with comfort and aesthetics that I wanted. If anything unexpected happens in the next few days or weeks, I will update this review.
Note: Sorry for the upside-down photos. They are right side up on my computer. If you want any other photos, let me know and I will post them.
UPDATE: 9/29/2017- Still very happy with this device. If there was only one complaint, it's that I have to recharge after 2 days. I'm not going to shave points off for that because it still does everything else I want it to do and it does it well.I know there are other bands that have longer battery cycles but I'm happy with the trade-off for a great screen and all the other features this band has built in. This is with one GPS included exercise per day and me checking stats several times a day. To save battery, I turned wifi off. I just couldn't figure out a need for it.
1. At first, I was disappointed when the band registered me mowing the lawn as "biking". (auto-exercise detection) Then I realized that was actually pretty good assuming that it registered my hands in a similar position and I may have had a similar cadence.
2. I guess I have a "medium" sized wrist. My wrist measures in at about 7 1/8 inches which I first thought would put me at a large. But there are 12 holes and I was using the last 3 to 4 of them (wrist swelling a bit due to temperature). So I traded it for a small. That was a mistake. On the small band, it was just the opposite and I was at the first 3-4 holes which made it so the loop to hold the excess band kept popping off. I went back to large. The excess band is way better.
3. If you have a regular exercise, it stores on the "exercise screen" making it really easy to start an exercise with your chosen parameters.
4. So nice to be able to sweat, swim, and shower without ever having to take the band off- except to charge it.
5. So comfortable, I never notice it until I see it.
6. Stairs seem more accurate if I move up quickly. It seems to miss them sometimes if I am going up in a lazy way.
7. I am using mine with a Galaxy Note * and they work flawlessly together. Samsung blew it by claiming it was compatible with iPhone at time of launch and the reviews are taking a beating as a result but I feel my review should focus only on my experience with the way I have it set up.
I'm going to rate this smartwatch to do its smartwatch things, that is, tell time and show notifications.
I already own several smartwatches: A Sony SW2, a Samsung S2, and a Fossil Q Explorist. These all use the traditional watch face shape (big and round or big and square) and all have their plusses and minuses. I have a preference for the Fossil mostly because it uses Google's Android Wear operating system, which is extremely well supported across the entire Android ecosystem. The Sony and the Samsung use their own proprietary operating systems, which introduces compatibility problems outside of their own phone ecosystems (see more on this below).
This watch, the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro, isn't appreciably different than the Samsung S2 in terms of software. You still need to install Samsung's own apps on your phone to work with Samsung's proprietary Tizen operating system. But this watch adopts the FitBit sports watch style, with a watch face that is far longer than it is wide (see photos for a comparison with the S2). I wasn't sure I'd like that, but I find that I LOVE it. It's sleek and not too showy. More significantly, the synthetic band that comes with this watch is FAR superior to the thick, uncomfortable, and ugly band that comes with the S2. When I got the S2, I IMMEDIATELY replaced the band, because I couldn't stand either how it looked or how it felt. The band on this watch, on the other hand, is possibly the most comfortable rubber-ish band I have ever worn. I put the watch on and very quickly forgot I was wearing it. It's not stylish enough for the boardroom, but for casual wear it is fantastic. Obviously, since this is a waterproof sports watch, it makes little practical sense to couple it with a metal or leather band.
The display on the watch is crisp and bright. The included watch faces (which you can easily switch) are mostly only OK for someone like me who is more interested in telling the time and getting notifications than in knowing how many steps I've walked or my heart rate. I wish more of them included info like the date with the time, for example. But beyond that, they look nice. Another good feature is that most of them have a low energy passive version that displays if you put the watch face option to be "always on" and haven't activated the active mode. Which is an option I would strongly recommend. Nothing is more annoying than looking at your watch and seeing...nothing. I know that the gesture of moving your wrist to look at your watch to see the face is supposed to cleverly turn it on but...it just doesn't a lot of time...trust me on this.
Now the downside of turning the watch face to be always on is that your battery lifetime takes a very serious hit. Samsung claims this watch can run for "days" on one charge. Not a chance if you have the face in "always on" mode. Then you can expect about 14-18 hours on a charge. Which is more than enough for one day, but you just have accept that you'll be charging up every day. And I'm OK with that.
The downside of charging is that this uses a proprietary charger (see photos), rather than micro-usb or the wireless Qi charging that the S2 uses. So if you forget that charger while traveling...well, welcome to life without a watch for a few days :-)
In terms of notifications, the watch is good, but could be better. Notifications are only provided for applications supported by the Samsung OS, so that means, for example, if you third party music apps other than Spotify (which is supported), you may see nothing on your watch to ID songs or control playback. (The watch does nicely integrate with Spotify, allowing you to download songs via Spotify premium and listen to them via Bluetooth from your watch, even if you don't have your phone nearby--handy if you don't like to take you phone with your running or swimming...With the standard set of apps installed, you have about 2Gb of storage left for music). Many other apps are also not supported on the phone, including Google Maps--a shame since the watch has GPS built in. The notifications the watch DOES provide are easy to read and showed up without issue, but there's a gotcha: The watch only shows the latest notification from certain apps. So, for example, if someone sends you several text messages in a row, you'll only see the last one and you'll be prompted to look at your phone to see more. That's not so terrific if your idea is to use the watch so you don't have to conspicuously take your phone out of your pocket.
As noted, the watch has GPS. It also has wireless. So you can use certain functions without proximity to your phone. Since it's also waterproof, one situation might be while swimming or taking a shower. I tested the watch in the shower, and it emerged in perfect condition--as expected.
Setup is straightforward with a severe caveat: As noted, this smartwatch uses Samsung's proprietary software. So you have to download that software to your phone. Now, per their own spec requirements, Samsung's software basically works with Android 4.4 or higher as long as your phone has at least 1.5gb of memory. No problem there, right, because just about every phone from the past several years meets those specs. Well, not so fast...As it turns out, Samsung has chosen to offer their software in the Google Play Android market based on a "whitelist" of compatible phones. Why? Who knows. But anyway, this means that if your phone has not been whitelisted, you are not going to be able to download and install the NECESSARY software to use the Smartwatch. I have personally encountered this with the Droid Turbo phone (essentially a Nexus 6 with a smaller screen). This phone WAS whitelisted with Android 5 (Lollipop). However, when the Droid Turbo was upgraded to Android 6 (Marshmallow), Samsung neglected to whitelist the phone with the upgraded operating system. So if you have one of these phones and try to download the necessary software...you can't--at least not from the Google store.
Fortunately, there is a workaround. You can "sideload" the Samsung software onto your phone. To do this, you have to find a third party site that hosts the Samsung software, turn on the flag on your phone that says "trust third party sources", then download and install the software. There are 2-4 pieces of software you'll have to install this way. It isn't hard to do, but it's a pain in the neck, and when Samsung updates their software, you'll have to do it again, because the "sideloaded" software won't upgrade on its own.
But the truth is this: A $200-300 smartwatch should not require you to hack the necessary software on your capable modern Android phone. This is the Achilles Heel of using a proprietary operating system, and one reason I prefer the Android Wear system that Google supports on Android.
On the whole, I absolutely LOVE the way this watch feels and (for a casual watch) the way it looks. Battery life is sufficient (charge every night) and notifications work fine (although with some caveats and missing apps). The need to sideload the required software on my phone is inexcusable, but for me it's just an annoyance. If you are afraid of the word "sideload" then you might find it a deal breaker.
