Gear Fit 2 and Gear IconX leaks from Samsung’s own website

Samsung Gear Fit2

Samsung’s own website has leaked the existence of an all-new Gear Fit 2 and Gear IconX. Images of the fitness band and Bluetooth earbuds leaked online last week, but now an announcement could be just over the horizon.

Strangely, these devices are up and available to look at over on Samsung’s S Health website; however, Samsung has yet to even make an announcement to unveil these two new devices. On the other hand, Samsung’s website does not provide any concrete details, so we’re still going off of leaks as far as specs go.

The Gear Fit 2 is believed to feature a 1.84-inch AMOLED display, 4GB of internal storage, built-in GPS, water resistance, and a handful of fitness features.

Samsung Gear IconX

There aren’t a whole lot of details on the Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds either. From the images, they look like they’re comfortable, and they’ll hopefully have great sound, making it perfect to pair with the Gear Fit 2.

We’ll hopefully hear an announcement very soon, though I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t hear anything until IFA 2016 in September.

Samsung is making another Gear Fit wearable, but that’s not all

After a period of absence, Samsung may be planning a return to the world of fitness wearables, after two new products — the Gear Fit 2, and activity tracking wireless earbuds called the IconX — were leaked.

Updated Samsung Gear Fit 2 leaked alongside Gear IconX

Samsung Gear FitIt’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about Samsung’s Gear Fit wearable, which means it’s almost time for a refresh. A new leak has popped up showing up what appears to be the Samsung Gear Fit 2, plus a bonus pair of Samsung ear buds that are being referred to as the IconX.

Bad news is that no hardware specs were revealed, but we do know that the Fit 2 will feature a dedicated GPS chip to improve the distance tracking functionality of the wearable. It has also reportedly adopted a more curved and ergonomic design.

gear fit 2

Besides the Gear Fit 2, we’ve also gotten a glimpse at the IconX Bluetooth ear buds. They’re completely wireless, and, interestingly, also double as a fitness tracker in addition to headphones. There’s no central component tethering the two, so one of the ear pieces houses 4 GB of internal storage to hold software and music, and they’re completely dependent on touch controls.

While that still leaves a little to the imagination, there’s also no clear release date or price for either device. The original Gear Fit hit a $ 200 price point, and I’d be surprised if Samsung deviated much from that for the Fit 2. I could see the IconX costing roughly the same, since nice Bluetooth headphones are already upwards of $ 100 and baking in full blown fitness tracking will definitely drive the price up.

Casey Neistat took Samsung’s Gear 360 to the Oscars

samsung_gear_360_4_TAThere’s no better way to build up excitement for a device than by incorporating it into some historic moment, and that’s exactly what Samsung did with the Gear 360. Casey Neistat took Samsung’s 360 degree camera to the Oscars just a few days ago and managed to capture Leonard DiCaprio’s first ever win for his role in The Revenant, all in 360 degree video.

And, of course, it got uploaded to YouTube, which also shows off YouTube’s ability to play 360 degree videos. Watching it in a normal YouTube window is a little weird, since it basically just looks like a distorted fish-eye angle, but if you have a browser capable of watching it in surround video, it’s worth checking out.
