For Samsung’s new Gear Fit, it is not just about fitness, it is about style, thus Samsung taking “style” to the fifth power with its new fitness themed ad, syle5, showing off the Samsung Galaxy S5 and new Gear Fit.

The style behind the Gear Fit is one of its strongest attributes. It is also very light, so it is easy to forget you are even wearing it. In our review of the Gear Fit, we also praised the stylish Super AMOLED display and the notifications that are integrated with the device when paired with a Galaxy S5.

Moreover, the water and dust resistant properties of Gear Fit are handy since you will certainly find yourself in the show with it at some point, and because it wants to track your physical activity, you are going to sweat with it on too.

Samsung shows off the Gear Fit in grand fashion with its latest ad, but if you are anything like us, you were probably also wondering how the ad was recorded since it is a first-person perspective. Just when you think you might see an image of Google Glass or some other yet-to-be-announced Samsung head-gear in a window reflection, you will easily notice it is just a special effect. So, no, there is no video-wearable to by spied in this new ad (like we said, we started thinking the same thing almost immediately).

Gear Fit is undoubtedly stylish, though we wish the fitness tracking features were a little more robust. Gear Fit is also a bit more pricey compared to other fitness wearables at $200.  Still, some will appreciate the baked in goodness that comes from the integrated feature set when paired to a Samsung Galaxy S5.  Is Gear Fit going to be on your wrist?
