Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro to be more expensive than last year's Gear Fit
by Florin Troaca / Aug 20, 2017, 7:00 PM
Earlier this month, we saw several renders showing the Gear Fit 2 Pro, while learning quite a few things about its features. Now, we also have details about its price. According to a leaked screenshot - seen below - the Gear Fit 2 Pro will cost $199.99 at a major US retailer. That's $20 over the launch price of the Gear Fit 2 from 2016 ($179.99).
To justify the higher price, the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro will come with a refreshed design, an improved wrist band, and enhanced water resistance (you should be able to use it while swimming and diving). Music playback and support for offline Spotify songs should also be among its new features.
Like its predecessor, the Gear Fit 2 Pro will work with Android and iOS phones, coming in Small and Large sizes. To be clear, this means small and large wrist bands, as the curved AMOLED screen will have the same (currently unknown) size regardless of model.
Do you think you'll be interested in buying this upcoming Samsung smart band?

I had the Gear Fit2, and loved it. The Gear S3 came out, smashed everything, and has been my daily watch driver since Nov 18th. I'd take a Gear S4 over the the Fit2 Pro, and won't be shelving my Gear S3 anytime soon. It's by far the best smart watch on the market. Nothing out can match it overall.

thanks. I wish they did. I had the fit 2, had a classic gear s2, but had an apple watch series 2. I use apple music a ton and loved not having to have my phone when working out. I tried google music but when it ported my music they sounded like chipmunks. so I went back to Apple music.

I've gone swimming with my Fit 2 and haven't had any problems with it. The only issue I've had is with the strap wanting to come undone (both while swimming and just sitting at home watching tv).

Game is over Samsung, Apple Watch is the king of fitness trackers.

If you don't count Fitbit, which crushes them.

If it's waterproof, that's not really a bad price. Been waiting for one to swim with, still tempted to get the Garmin VivoActive, but it's a pretty ugly looking thing...

Wait for the new one to come out. It looks like a pretty solid device... https://www.wareable.com/garmi
