Summary

Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 is a fitness tracker that has tracking step, sleep, and heart rate at its core all wrapped up in a design that doesn't feel as cheap as its price tag. As with most fitness trackers these days, the Fit 2 also works as an accompanying device for your smartphone, allowing you to control apps and receive notifications. It's a shame that there's no GPS or NFC, and you're still paying a little more than for the likes of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 is a simple daily-use fitness tracker. It has a heart rate sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope, but no ability to measure blood oxygen, take an ECG, link up with GPS, or even add elevation data using an altimeter. Samsung makes some big claims about the battery life of the Fit 2, but there are various caveats hidden in the small print.

Samsung offers a very good everyday tracker with the Galaxy Fit 2. So the Fit 2 remains firmly on your wrist while jogging, sleeping, walking, and even in the shower, if you wish. On both Android and Apple iOS, you'll need to install both the Galaxy Wear app to connect your smartphone to the wearable.

  • Good fitness features

Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
Samsung has left behind the metal surround for the display and opted instead to blend it much closer to the silicon strap. Securing it to your wrist is a sturdy buckle, with the soft silicon strap featuring a new hinged design on the clasp. The controls on the band itself are simple, to fit the small display. In use, the tracker does a good job of identifying your exertions, monitoring steps, heart rate and the duration of a session.

Pros[**]
  • Good battery life
  • Accurate heart rate monitor
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 is a fitness tracker that has tracking step, sleep and heart rate at its core. Housed in that slim, light sporty band frame are sensors that do a mostly good job of tracking steps, monitoring sleep and tracking your exercise. The lack of GPS means exercise tracking is motion sensor based, which does mean it's left lacing in the accuracy department for outdoor activities like running. There's an optical heart rate monitor to enable continuous monitoring, heart rate data during exercise and to enable stress monitoring.

Pros[**]
  • Slim, light design
  • Good battery life
  • Accurate sleep tracking
Cons[**]
  • Not as accurate as the Fitbit Sense and Garmin Fenix 6

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
At just 21g, I regularly found myself forgetting the Galaxy Fit 2 was even on my wrist. It's a great fit for anyone with small wrists or those put off by bulkier smartwatches. In spite of its affordability, the Fit 2 has a sizeable number of workouts that can be tracked. There's a good amount of variety here with fitness staples like yoga and rowing.

Pros[**]
  • Fantastic battery life
  • Excellent fitness and sleep tracking
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
