SAMSUNG SM-R3600DAAINU Gear Fit 2 Black Smart band is a fitness cum smart watch. Samsung has really improved from the Fit 1. This device has a GPS tracking. So let’s have a look at the Samsung Gear Fit 2 in this review.
The Samsung SM-R3600DAAINU Gear Fit 2 comes with an AMOLED curved screen. On the box, it comes with a silicone band that is magnetic. The band is removable and you can replace this. It comes with a heart rate sensor present at the bottom. You will get a charging dock and you can simply place it on the dock. It has two physical buttons over here one is home and other is back.

The SAMSUNG SM-R3600DAAINU Gear Fit 2 comes with a very bright display of 1.5-inch size. Displays around 16M colors. Packing a resolution of 216 x 432 pixels which is very good. This is a multi-capacitive touch screen. It is a high-resolution display which is colorful. The display diameter is 25.4mm it is a super AMOLED screen it looks really nice. Initial impressions feel nice.
This is actually the best looking small smart screens that I have seen on any device whether it is a fitness tracker or smartwatch. It looks absolutely fantastic indoors. The problem is that this is a fitness tracker where you have to do a lot of workouts in direct sunlight and the screen doesn’t suit that. The display is super glossy so I have to cup it with one hand to see it.
The SAMSUNG SM-R3600DAAINU Gear Fit 2 smart watch is a dust and water resistant and ingress protection rating of the IP68 model. It is provided with a Blue tooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is provided with Pace Alert, Vibration Alert. Provided with Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, HR Sensors. It has a RAM of 0.5GB and internal memory of 4GB and available memory is 2GB.
The dimensions of the device are 51.2 x 24.5 mm. It comes with a 200mAh capacity with a backup of 3-4 days on typical usage and 5 days on low usage. Features such as Auto Activity Tracking (Running, Walking, Cycling, Elliptical, Rowing machine, Sleep), Social Challenge (Steps Leaderboard, Steps Challenge) are available.
Samsung claims that it had improved the battery life from the previous version. You can easily pair with a non-Samsung device. You just have to install the Samsung gear app. You can swipe left or right. You can also swipe from the top. It does a good job with the GPS tracking distance and other important metrics for jogging or for cycling. It also calculates its average pace and your maximum pace. Overall this is a very capable GPS watch or GPS fitness tracker.
The first major weakness is that the heart rate sensor on this device, it does not activate for certain exercises, now for steady cardio it will use the heart rate sensor for things like cycling biking, hiking and running but for just your average work out in the gym lifting weights the heart rate sensor does not get activate. The only thing it will do is counting the calories burned. And the calorie count is just a guessing by the movement of the wrist. The device also pairs with a Bluetooth headphones to use the built-in music player.
SAMSUNG SM-R3600DAAINU Gear Fit 2 Black Smart band is really an amazing smart watch cum band with an amazing display and good GPS functionality. This is a perfect fitness band that comes at a reasonable price. It is available at a price of Rs 11,990/- which is not a big number comparing to other fitness trackers.
