Despite its 1 year age, the Gear Fit 2 is still a solid device, it can be recognized from the crowd with its AMOLED display, which is the best on any fitness tracker, also, Tizen OS is the best user friendly you can find on any wearable.
The device comes with a built in GPS for runners, a HRM, and auto tracking to automatically recognize your activities including sleeping, and if training in the rain, the Gear Fit 2 is water resistant for 30 min under 5 feets.
beside of smartphone notifications, you can store your own music on the device, or connect to Spotify without the need of your smartphone. Battery life is just OK, it last between 4 and 5 days, but with GPS use, you only get 9 hours, it is not the best batter you can get, but than can be explained with the big AMOLED display.
