Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

The distance isnt accurate

I love running and keeping fit, but when I run using the Gear Fit the distance it tells me isnt accurate, if I were to go cycling or hiking, the GearFit would connect to my phones GPS which would make it accurate.

Samsung need to provide an update which allows the watch to connect to my phones GPS for running and walking, not just cycling and hiking, only then would it get a 5 star rating from me

Samsung Gear Fit the way to go!

I went in looking at FitBit but after talking to someone who had this instead (she has multiple Samsung products), I chose the Gear Fit to go along with my Galaxy S4 smartphone.

I love that I don't have to wear a watch AND this device. Someone commented today that they liked my new bracelet. And I LOVE that its able to control my music.

Eh... doesn't need to be sold as a fit companion - more distance tracking..

The concept is really cool. BUT... unless you are walking, cycling, hiking, or running the "fit" part doesn't really do you any good (these are the only choices of exercise you can choose from).

I was excited to check this out, but was skeptical since no one that sold it to me could answer anything about the heart rate monitor. I workout and take classes at the gym. I was hoping to replace my heart rate monitor chest strap. It doesn't replace it. So, while I'd hoped it would count my calories burned, it did not. As a matter of fact, it counted 1 calorie every way I tried to use it. I tried it on all choices (run, walk, etc.). If it truly is reading my heart rate, I would think it would count the calories. HERE IS MY DISCLAIMER: I am not familiar with the "technical" side of the equipment, so I could be mistaken... BUT... it seems that if you are traveling (walking, running, etc.) it does not utilize your heart rate to count calories... OR maybe it doesn't initiate the heart rate monitor unless you are traveling? I don't know. As far as the notifications... text, FB, email, etc... It was neat, but that as about it. If you really needed to be notified that you have incoming items, it would be great. If you are using it to be able to check your messages, etc., discreetly, good luck. It's still pretty obvious that you are looking at something; difference is, instead of your lap, it's your wrist. One problem though most of the time I could not feel the vibration alert. I never found a way to increase or decrease the strength of the notification. I hate to sound so negative but I just wasn't thrilled. The "idea" of it is great, but it just lacks in follow through. If had done just a bit more, I would have kept it. I just felt that I couldn’t justify the expense for something that I used more of as a watch. I think I'll wait to see what else happens in the techy gear fit watch arena a little longer. WIth much heartache, I returned it.
