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[***]:
Samsung makes some big claims about the battery life of the Galaxy Fit 2. Samsung says to get close to 21 days battery life you have to make do without the sleep tracking, no heart rate sensor, and no auto workout tracking either. Sleep tracking is one of the areas you may have to forgo to maximize battery life, and it's worth doing so.

  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Sleep tracking is inconsistent
  • No auto workout tracking

The capacitive button caused a few teething problems for me, being so inconspicuous that I didn't recognize it until halfway through my review. The lack of GPS could very well be a reason against using the Galaxy Fit 2. Samsung also offers a water mode that you can activate via the notification bar even when tracking is active.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 costs £49/US$59. It tracks steps, heart rate and the duration of a session. You can also receive notifications from apps directly to the Fit 2. Samsung claims a maximum battery life of 21 days of charge at a time, but quickly underlines that with up to 15 days with typical usage.

techradar[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 promises to cover largely the same things you could do with the first Fit. You're still getting accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensors to track movement and automatically detect sleep. There's also an optical heart rate monitor to offer heart rate data during exercise, continuous monitoring to enable stress tracking. For those daily activity stats, you're getting steps, distance covered and calories burned.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Fit 2 has a sizeable number of workouts that can be tracked via the device. There’s a good amount of variety here with fitness staples like rowing and yoga. You can also track a range of sports including basketball and golf. The battery life is a huge improvement with Samsung quoting a 14-day battery – double the quoted figure for the Galaxy Fit.
