Pictures of Samsung's rumored fitness tracker surface (updated)
Samsung already manufactures smartwatches, including the Samsung Gear S2. Now, photographs of a fitness tracker known internally as Triathlon have surfaced. The device has a model number of SM-R150, and looks like the Sport variant of the Tizen powered Gear 2 smartwatch (right down to the rotating bezel). Like the Gear S2, the wearable is powered by Tizen.

UPDATE: It appears the new "photographs" are actually screenshots of a promo video of Samsung's Body Compass 2.0 system. The device that's seen there might still be a glimpse of the upcoming fitness tracker, or it may just be a demo device, or some sort of Gear S2 variation. We've embedded the video below.

The Samsung SM-R150 is reportedly going to be an affordable product. While pricing and availability are unknown, we would expect the usual features for a fitness tracker including the monitoring of the user's heart rate, sleeping patterns, exercise goals, pulse and calories burned. It also appears to keep track of a user's water intake and body fat measurement.

The SM-R150 has not yet been made official by Samsung. Despite that, you can take a look at photos that allegedly show Sammy's new Triathlon fitness tracker by clicking on the slideshow below.

under $100? NEVER ....seeing how the Gear fit still retails for $150 still I'm guessing this will be priced around $200 to $250 which is still affordable unless you don't have a job

Never say never. The Gear Fit was available at $99 for some time last year.

Can they make it waterproof please and have something something for swimmers. As a swimmer we always struggle with wearables. All the smartwatch currently available are ugly. There is awkward something for runners and cyclists. Most swimming watches don't have app stores. I want something that will track my swimming and the same watch I can use at the gym to log my raps and sets as well.

You want a swimming smartwatch and never heard of the Garmin Fenix 3? Maybe you should look it up. It's not as advance as Android Wear or the Apple watch but it has a always on watch-face and it'll last you at least 10 days of regular use.

It's pretty expensive so be warned, like $500 to $800 expensive.

I know about it. The thing is there is no App Store and their so called App Store is just full of face watches. I'm talking now about a real smartwatch where I can download apps, something I can also use when I'm not swimming. If you know what I mean.

You tech people.... It looks absolutely horrible! The contrast of sporty rubber design and fake shiny chrome is so, so cheesy, only Samsung could make the cheap look cheaper. And right when I thought that the Gear S2 couldn't look any cheaper...

#ButtHurt? Maybe. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You think it's ugly, we think it's beautiful. In gonna leave it there. Don't convince us bcos it's not gonna work...

You sound like a teen. "Get laughed at?" The idiots who "laugh" bought it for me I guess?

And design is not to the eye of the beholder, it's a craft that people study and exercise and quite often a very hard job. Also a job that Samsung is reminding us on a regular basis that doesn't have a clue about.

Id definitely agree with that, idk why ppl assume that a designer just hands in a sketch and gets paid. I am actually not impressed by the way it tries to be elegant, it's like lipstick on a pig. Somehow I think the designer was going for elegant and the suits decided that it also had to look gadgety or high tech...

and who would you say has eye for design also if you care that much about the look of the item you're not really working out you are a fake gym rat

Then how do you explain the Apple Watch, an enlarged Chiclet with bands? Which phone looks better, the S6 Edge+ or the 6S Antenna Lines Plus?

None... They both have design mistakes.

A real desiger should also know that chrome plated serves only an esthetic function and by definition is always "fake".. Or not, depending how you define " fake". Here we don't know if the ring is plastic or metal, but you can chrome plate either material. Not much more than pigment coloring.

It's like saying all those cars and motorcycles use "fake shiny chrome" too. Or any chrome plated object for that matter. Good luck attacking all those designer.

Have you seen how Mercedes and BMW chrome usually the outlines of their windows whereas Ferrari never? This is what I mean. Not that I don't like chrome in general, but that there is some thinking behind its application. In this monstrosity of a smartwatch the chrome is clearly looking out of place and terribly cheap.

Most classic Ferrari's did too. Today it's usually associated with luxury styled cars rather than sportiness. But that highlights exactly the point here, style is subjective and changes over time due to conformity. Yet many still find classic cars beautiful and besides that, being a conformist isn't a virtue either, especially true for designers.

So, you're telling me that this thing pictured in this article is an anticonformistic design statement? :-))

Whether you or I like it or not, is subjective, but it sure is nonconformist.

Beauty depends on the manufacturer here... With a Samsung logo this is Beautiful, put an Apple logo on it and it's the most disgustingly hideous abomination of a creation in the history of mankind.

Well from what I can grasp through your terrible grammar you seem to think I'm upset Apple didn't make this? No, I don't and won't ever be wearing any type of watch or "fitness tracker" regardless of who makes it.

All I said was the truth about the majority of opinion on this site.

Should those who prefer to wear a Wearable fitness tracker be ashamed because your wisdom should be adhered to?

The point -> .

You -> :)

I said nothing about the benefits or not of fitness trackers, Jesus can no-one here read or comprehend anything? Read back - I spoke about the design and how views differ here based purely on the manufacturer rather than the merits of said design. The guy who can't construct a sentence then jumped in with the insinuation I was upset because this particular device wasn't made by Apple which is irrelevant to me and I responded accordingly.

It might just be the color scheme, but this looks awful. I actually think the Gear S2 looks okay, but this is gaudy and cheap looking.

Funny how people can see this and say it is beautiful! I'm a ardent Samsung fan and I bought the regular gear s2 & I'd be first to say that in terms of what I'd define as a beautiful watch the gear S2 is average. Not beautiful & not ugly just Ok but this here is downright ugly IMO. I'm a professional artist BTW & my business requires I have a balanced sense of aesthetics & design. I think what's impressing most of the guys thrilled by the looks of this fitness tracker is the Graphic/UI design & animation on that screen & not the physical design. The weird contours on the ring of the circular screen is just awful.

They shouldn't wear it on their head, that would be silly.
