Sprint Fit Live to the Galaxy S5, creating an exclusive version of the device. The features include 12 months of free MapMyFitness MVP. Produced by Under Armour, the app gives users customized audio coaching, fitness and training plans, and live tracking of your workouts. Physically, the phone will also feature rubber grips and physical front buttons.
As you know from watching Rocky, music can play a big part in getting you to move while working out. Thus, Sprint is offering Spotify Workout playlists with a free six month premium subscription to the music streamer, for Sprint Framily members. Other Sprint subscribers will get three free months of Spotify. Additionally, those with the Galaxy S5 Sport will receive contextual content related to health and fitness. The carrier plans on offering Sprint Fit Live to all of its Android phones sold this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is available from Sprint for $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $27.09 ($650.16 not including taxes). The handset is available in Electric Blue or Cherry Red. And continuing the sports themed offering from the nation's third largest carrier, those purchasing the phone will receive a $50 credit toward the purchase of the Samsung Gear Fit fitness band.

Seriously, has anybody anywhere actually purchased a special edition of a phone because it offered a free 1/2/3/6/12/24 month subscription to any sort of bulls$%t service, when there's countless of other apps/services that do the same for free?

What Sprint really needs to do is upgrade they're crappy network so people can actually use the service they pay for. Thank god I finally switched over to T-mobile this weekend I just couldn't take one more day with the pathetic service I was receiving from them. Sprint should go bankrupt already the line of pending civil law suits from pissed off customers is longer then the line at the DMV in the mornings.

Except the upgraded Sprint network works fine and has much greater coverage than TMO.

For voice, I'll agree with you. Theirs is better than T-Mobile's. Now when it comes to reliability and speed of data, T-Mobile blows them out of the water. And it's not in select markets since PC Mag proved they're the fastest along with Verizon.

I got my M8 when it was released with Sprint back in the beginning of April, and it has been a nightmare ever since. Dropped calls everywhere, People calling me 50 times before my phone even rings once, phone showing I have 3G/4G service when in reality I have none, Texts coming through in spurts..... As soon as the G3 is released i'm going to T-Mobile because i've been patient with Sprint long enough. They need to stop focusing on exclusives and improve their network asap because i've been a loyal Sprint customer for years and I can't deal with it anymore
