New Samsung S Band activity tracker leaked

New Samsung S Band activity tracker leaked
It looks like Samsung is getting ready to introduce another new wearable this year, besides the already announced Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit.

Called Samsung S Band, the alleged new device is an activity tracker. As you may know, Samsung announced an S Band last year as well, but that one didn’t make it to market.

The new S Band should be released as a fitness accessory for the Galaxy S5 and other Samsung smartphones. Unlike the Samsung Gear Fit (which is also used to track fitness activity), the S Band doesn’t seem to have a proper display, and this should make it considerably cheaper. We’re hearing that the Gear Fit will cost $200, so perhaps the S Band will be sold for no more than $100.

The S Band can monitor your daily activity (including calories and distance), and even your sleep quality. It connects to Samsung’s Activity Tracker App and S Health 3.0 on your handset, that's how it shows you the info it gathers. 

It’s not clear if Samsung intends to release this new S Band in the near future. But since the new Galaxy S5 will go on sale on April 11, we’re probably going to hear more on this pretty soon. Until then, check out the S Band in the slideshow below.

Looks to be a simpler longer lasting version since the screen seems basic and it has simple tracking features.

When are OEMs going to learn that they would sell way more of their products if they didn't make them proprietary? ??

100$ for this design is actually pretty decent even though i'd much rather pay a 100 more for the Gear Fit.

stamp the sony name on it, and I'll bet you're gonna fall in love with it. On every Samsung, HTC, and Apple article you always jump on with your lame comments showing your affection for Sony. We all get it troll.

You're wrong. I wouldn't. This looks like a kids toy watch you can get for 5 euros. Why would they shape it like a watch when it's nothing like a watch? Looks stupid to wear 2 watch looking devices. Especially when the other isn't even a watch. Samsung just can't do beautiful design it's a fact. Yes I won't argue that it's impossible to like this because some people like it that way but the fact is that it's not stylish. Same goes with any Samsung smart device right now. Their TV's look good. And by the way I love HTCs design and the New One looks awesome so shut up.

Sony Smartband is nothing compared to Gear Fit's design

Gear Fit is freaking geeky. I would never put something like that on my wrist. Never. I don't understand why they even did that. It's like a Gear 2 with that stupid shaped display.

So you're the judge then. Okay.

I imagine you have Armani suits in your closet, a Ferrari in the garage, and Vogue Magazine on your coffee table since you are such an expert on what is an isn't a good design. News flash: it is your OPINION. Sales numbers will determine what the majority of people in the world think.

It looks like a trillion other casio watches on this planet. Besides, it's an activity tracker. You're the Joan Rivers of mobile devices.

they've been doing so for the past 4 years and they are enjoying a huge success while doing so, so why should they stop?

I agree with you totally, thats their strategy and it works well. But lately they is a tiny bit of a turnaround as S4 did not perform as well as expected in last few months. Who knows, maybe this year S5 sells less than S4.

Holy haters Batman. It's just another cheaper option for consumers. If you don't like it then by all means don't buy it.
