The Samsung Gear Fit wearable is powered by neither Android, nor Tizen – enter the RTOS
Samsung's RTOS is a simple platform, which processes data significantly faster than other, more complex operating systems. Although RTOS can run on ”limited computing hardware”, it still comes with multitasking capabilities and supports task priorities. Thanks to its simplicity, Samsung's wearable platform allows the Gear Fit to squeeze out even more battery life than its peers, the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear Neo.
The simplicity of RTOS does not allow developers to create 3rd party apps for the Gear Fit. Still, this might prove to be good for users, as the health-centric Gear Fit wearable will most probably provide them with more accurate data and feedback.
Samsung is not the only manufacturer to turn its head away from Android – Sony is also developing its own mobile platform for the Sony SmartWatch 2 and the Sony SmartBand.
