What’s the Difference?

Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro Features Compared

  1. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Design

  2. The Galaxy Fit might not be a direct replacement for the Gear Fit 2 nor the Gear Fit 2 Pro, but it sure looks spectacular in its stylish design that leaves it with a decent appearance.

    The Galaxy Fit has the smallest display size compared to the other two, also has the least weight and is the sleekest which makes it a more comfortable wear while working out. You’ll barely remember you’re putting it on.

    Although, each of these three is lightweight.

    The Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro are definitely easier to navigate considering that they both have 2 button in addition to the touchscreen support, and in addition the more holistic and features loaded Tizen OS offers a more satisfying experience than the FreeRTOS that powers the Galaxy Fit.

  3. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Battery Life

  4. While the Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro have decent battery life that should see you through a couple of days, the Galaxy Fit has a slight longer battery life.

    Samsung had stated that the Galaxy Fit will last about a week on mixed usage which is longer than the Gear Fit 2 or Fit 2 Pro that last just about 3 days on average.
    And, that’s to say the Galaxy Fit is the best choice for anyone engaging in extreme workout durations.

  5. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Storage

  6. The Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro will serve as better companion while working out than the Galaxy Fit which lacks any significant onboard storage to accommodate your favorite tracks.

    Both the Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro come with 4GB ROM out of which about 2.5GB is available for storing your files and even allows you download your favorite tracks from Spotify.

  7. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Water Resistance Rating

  8. While the Galaxy fit and Gear Fit 2 Pro are rated 5ATM that makes these two water resistant up to 50 meters, the Gear Fit 2 is rated IP68 that means its only water resistant up to 1.5 meters.

    That off course means that while you can freely wear the Galaxy Fit or the Gear Fit 2 Pro to the pool or ocean, you might not do that comfortably with the Fit 2.

  9. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Connectivity

  10. The Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro both come with Wi-Fi which isn’t present on the Galaxy Fit. However, the Galaxy Fit comes with NFC chip that supports Samsung pay – a contactless payment system that enables you make payment on the go from the device.

    Neither the Gear Fit2 nor Fit 2 Pro is equipped with NFC chip which means you won’t be able to make any payment from any of these two.

  11. Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Activity Tracking

Each of these would make a great choice for tracking your active life as each is well equipped to track a whole lot of activities.

However, the Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro with inbuilt GPS are actually GPS smartwatches with quite a number of features that enables tracking of your outdoor activities (locations, routes, distance) effortlessly which off course makes these two great choices for tracking outdoor activities.

You also get access to some of the world’s biggest names in fitness tracking such as UA Record, MapMyRun, MyFitnessPal, and Endomondo with the Gear Fit 2 Pro.

The Galaxy Fit tracks 90 different activities including detailed sleep tracking and analysis, 24/7 heart rate monitoring and as well your steps, cycling, swimming and runs. It automatically detects and tracks 6 of those 90 activities which no doubt makes it great choice for managing your fitness goals.

Samsung Galaxy Fit vs Gear Fit 2 vs Fit 2 Pro: Which is Better?

No doubt each of these three is a great choice if you’re looking for a fitness tracker that tracks your active life and helps you manage your fitness goals effortlessly and accurately.

However, the Fit 2 Pro is a bit high-end device with the more features that makes it the most comprehensive choice for tracking your active life.
On the other hand, I would say the Galaxy Fit that’s a bit cheaper than the Gear Fit 2 is a more befitting choice.

Although lacks onboard storage and inbuilt GPS, has NFC chip that’s lacking on the other two while also having the longest battery life that ensures you can go longer on a single charge. And being able to track 90 activities, no doubt makes it a great deal.

Here is a summary;

SAMSUNG GEAR FIT 2 PRO Has more features which makes it the most comprehensive choice for tracking your active life.
SAMSUNG GALAXY FIT A cheaper smart choice, a comprehensive tracker with the longest battery life.
SAMSUNG GEAR FIT 2 Also an outstanding choice and a comprehensive activity tracker.
Our Pick

Although, the Galaxy Fit lacks onboard storage and inbuilt GPS, however, its design fit the perfect definition of what a fitness tracker should be. And in addition, it has the longest battery life while being a comprehensive activity tracker. The Galaxy Fit is our preferred choice.
