It provides much more than an everyday fitness band, keeping consumers up to date instant notifications from Galaxy smartphones such as incoming calls, E-Mails, 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.
