Samsung's Latest Wearable Lets You Leave Your Smartphone Behind
This lightweight workout device includes a fitness tracker and music player
Wearables have always been a sort of extension for the phone. Samsung is trying to change that with its newest duo of fitness wearables that work well on their own. The Gear Fit2, a smartwatch, and the IconX earbuds are planning to change what it truly means to be a wearable device.
All about fitness, the IconX is built for the run. While the IconX works perfectly as Bluetooth earbuds, they are far more than that. In its diminutive form lies not just good sound but also an array of fitness tracking tools. It can time runs, and track heart rate, distance and calories burned. It relays all this to the wearer using a dedicated voice dictation software.
