Samsung brings Gear Sport, Fit2 Pro and IconX; available from RM299 this 1st December!
Fitness is something you do not relate with tech, especially when most technically-inclined guys end up really obese. Well perhaps injecting some tech into fitness would motivate them to work out more? Introduced to the world way back in August, the Gear Sport, Gear IconX and Gear Fit2 Pro have finally arrived in Malaysia. Well, not quite yet, but yeah.
Gear Sport; the smartwatch for all occasions
The Gear Sport is the smartest of the trio of wearables introduced today. It features 5 ATM water resistance and swim tracking capabilities so you can record your swim in your fitness plan. Aside from the various fitness-oriented features, it also allows you to reply to emails, use Samsung Pay and Samsung Connect, all in one sleek, ergonomic form with interchangeable 20mm straps. It will be available in Blue and Black, priced at RM1299.
Gear IconX; true freedom from wires
Most wireless earphones marketed as “wireless” still feature some kind of cord between the earpieces. Not the Gear IconX. Being cord-free earbuds, they offer a secure and comfortable fit without the annoyance of cables. It features the Running Coach function with voice feedback to motivate users on their run. Use it independently without a smartphone thanks to the internal storage, but it has no qualms delivering you your tunes from your phone as well. The Gear IconX is your latest connection to Bixby, simply tap and hold the earbuds to control your music, playlist and smartphone via voice commands. It will be available in Black, Gray and Pink, priced at RM799.
Gear Fit2 Pro; swim or run, your choice
The Gear Fit2 Pro is Samsung’s latest GPS sports band. It also packs swim tracking and GPS tracking so you can run or swim to fitness. The advanced GPS tracking allows you to record your run or ride with accurate activity tracking, making every move count. Thanks to their partnership with Under Armour, users also get access to the brand’s fitness apps. It will be available in Liquid Black and Diamond Red, priced at RM799.
All the devices will be available from 1st December 2017 at all Samsung Experience Stores. With every purchase of the Gear Sport from 1st to 31st December 2017, customers will also receive two FREE Gear straps worth RM198 and a Limited Edition Watch Collector Box worth RM299.
