Giving couch potatoes more incentive to get moving, Samsung has just announced the Samsung Gear Sport and Icon X. These cool wearables can help keep users informed, motivated and on track to accomplishing fitness goals.
“The key to living a healthy life is to keep moving and stay active; and as such, we want to drive people to enjoy a dynamic and balanced life in a smart and seamless way. Now with the new Gear Sport, an aspirational timepiece of daily use, and the new Gear IconX, the cord-free earbuds to help fill their workout regime with music, these two devices are set to help people of varying fitness levels meet their fitness goals,” said KM Liew, Head of IT & Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
The Gear Sport is a personal fitness coach that helps users get the most out of everyday activities. It provides the ultimate all-round fitness experience, keeping track of daily movements and workouts systematically.
It’s also water resistant with a 5 ATM rating and has swim tracking capabilities to measure key swim metrics for better results. The Gear Sport also features changeable standard 20mm straps to fit a variety of fashions. Of course, you can also keep track of their work, such as replying emails, aside from your fitness goals. The Gear Sport is available in black and blue.
The Gear IconX are cord-free earbuds that feature an updated design. For fitness enthusiasts, the Running Coach function with voice feedback can help motivate users based on the pace set, just like a personal fitness coach.
These buds have a long-lasting battery and music can be enjoyed on and offline by transferring songs from a Samsung smartphone or PC, or accessing favourite tunes through Bluetooth. The Gear IconX is also the newest connection to Bixby. With a tap and hold of the earbud, you can now control your music, playlist and smartphone through voice command. The Gear IconX is available in 3 colours – black, grey and pink.
Completing the trio is the Gear Fit2 Pro, an upgraded GPS sports band. Launched in September 2017 with the Galaxy Note8, the new Gear Fit2 Pro features advanced built-in GPS tracking. Samsung’s Under Armour partnership provides access to the brand’s popular fitness apps that offer a connected experience via features including activity, nutrition and social functions.
The new Gear Sport and new Gear IconX will be available in Samsung Experience Stores from 1st December 2017 onwards at a retail price of RM1,299 and RM799 respectively; while the Gear Fit2 Pro retails at RM799.
With every purchase of Gear Sport from 1st to 31st December 2017, customers will receive two complimentary Gear straps worth RM198 and a Limited Edition Watch Collector Box worth RM299, while stocks last.
