While Samsung unveiled new wearable devices at MWC 2014, saying they would be available in stores in early April, the company did not actually mention pricing details for the Gear 2, the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. However, it appears SamMobile has learned the European prices for these devices, and from the looks of it, the new smartwatches and fitness band are not exactly affordable. More →

Samsung has redeemed itself. The company’s Galaxy Gear was without question among the worst smartwatches that debuted in 2013. The battery lasted for a single day, the charging mechanism was a hassle, the huge hump on the strap that held the camera ruined an otherwise sleek design, and controlling the device with S Voice was an all-around terrible experience. The fact that the Galaxy Gear was so bad, however, makes Samsung’s latest triumph that much sweeter — the tech giant’s new Gear Fit has been named “Best Mobile Device” by the GSMA. More →
Samsung was so excited about its new Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches that the company couldn’t even wait for its Mobile World Congress press conference on Monday to unveil them. Instead, Samsung announced the new wearable computing devices early Sunday morning. To be honest, you can’t blame Samsung for being overly eager to announce the devices so that the company could begin to help us forget the original Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Because two wearable devices just wasn’t enough, Samsung has unveiled a third entry into the 2014 lineup at Mobile World Congress: the fitness-minded Gear Fit. The Gear Fit is a more compact device than the Galaxy Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, although it offers much of the same functionality. The Gear Fit features a 1.84-inch curved AMOLED display, a 210 mAh battery that should last 3-4 days between charges, Bluetooth connectivity and a changeable strap. Inside the Fit is an accelerometer, gyro and heart rate sensors. Apps to monitor your workout sessions will be included, but third-party apps can be downloaded to the device as well. If you’re looking for a device that can keep track of your body while updating you of any notifications on your other Galaxy devices, the Fit might be the most affordable option yet when it arrives in April. Samsung’s press release follows below. More →
