Samsung Gear Fit seems to be a hit, initial stock reportedly sells out
While wearables are still far from being mainstream devices, it looks like Samsung’s Gear Fit is successful. According to Korean website MK and unnamed industry sources, Samsung produced an initial batch of 200,000 to 250,000 Gear Fit units, and it sold everything in 10 days (with 25,000 units being sold in South Korea only).
The Gear Fit costs $199 (or €199 in Europe), and is a hybrid between a smartwatch and a smartband. It runs a new OS developed by Samsung and called Real Time OS. The device has an attractive design - thanks to its curved 1.84-inch Super AMOLED display with 432 x 128 pixels. The Gear Fit also has a curved battery (developed by Samsung SDI) which can last 3 to 5 days on a single charge.
For those who may not know, the Gear Fit is compatible with no less than 20 Samsung devices: 12 smartphones and 8 tablets. You should check out our Samsung Gear Fit review to find out more about the device.
