Hong Kong – May 30, 2019 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced the launch of Galaxy Fit, a new wearable device that provides essential health-monitoring features to help users attain their goals of living a healthier life. With a sleek and light body, the Galaxy Fit complements different styles and brings comfort to everyday life. The smartwatch allows users to choose from more than 90 kinds of exercises in the Samsung Health app and store all tracking data on the corresponding smartphone. It can also automatically track users’ sleep, stress and heart rate levels to monitor health conditions anytime, paving the way for a healthy lifestyle. 

“Samsung understands that consumers seek a well-balanced life. The sleek and stylish Galaxy Fit is suitable for different workout types and supports a positive lifestyle. Together with every step of users’ way of life, the Galaxy Fit enables a convenient smart experience with a simple and easy-to-use interface,” says Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. 

24/7 Life Tracker with Long-Lasting Battery Life

As the best practical accessory for both sportswear and daily outfits, the Galaxy Fit boasts a compact body that comes at only 23g and showcases personal styles with two attractive colors – black and silver. The Galaxy Fit features a full-color AMOLED screen, which graces the watch faces with clear and vibrant colors. The touch control function enables users to enjoy a refined screen that shows personal or workout information at a glance with a simple touch. Various colorful themes can be applied to the watch face, adding more color to everyday living and elevating the smart experience with even more fun and practicality. 

To ensure users stay connected anytime and anywhere, the Galaxy Fit is equipped with a long-lasting battery which can last all week without any additional charging [1]. The wireless charging capabilities allow users to charge their phones conveniently, and facilitate their daily fitness training or tracking activities. Galaxy Fit alerts users of incoming calls and messages with the use of their smartphones’ Bluetooth, following every step of their daily life to foster a healthier, more productive lifestyle. Military-grade durability [2] and a leading 5ATM water resistance rating [3] of the Galaxy Fit ensures peace of mind when it is used in different kinds of water sports and outdoor adventures.

Easy Tracking Functions

The Galaxy Fit can help monitor workout data, helping users stay motivated and reach their goals. It supports auto workout tracking for walking, running, cycling, and working out on a rowing machine or elliptical machine. It starts to track activities and workout duration automatically after 10 minutes of exercise. For more detailed tracking, more than 90 kinds of workout scenarios are available on the Galaxy Fit for manual exercise tracking. By simply pressing the side key for three seconds, users can choose their favorite preset workouts and start the exercise right away. The Galaxy Fit can display various statistics for different workout types, such as exercise time, calories burned and heart rate, enabling users to check their health conditions anytime. 

Through the auto sleep tracking function of Galaxy Fit, users can track four different sleep stages, including REM sleep, then check out their sleep profile and monitor their sleep cycles. The Galaxy Fit can also gather data and analyze sleep quality, helping users form better sleep habits. With Goodnight mode, users can silence alerts for incoming messages and calls except for the morning alarm setting, ensuring undisturbed sleep. Furthermore, the Galaxy Fit can track users’ stress levels and breathing frequency [4], and provide deep-breathing exercises to effectively adjust stress levels. The heart rate sensor [5] of the device ensures users stay healthy by sending an alert when a high heart rate is detected while resting. 

Extraordinary Smart Experience

The excellent functions of the Galaxy Fit enable intelligent everyday applications. Users can easily check notifications, receive alarm alerts, dismiss incoming calls, and quickly send prewritten replies[6] via the Galaxy Fit without the need to take out their smartphones. The device also offers convenient features to support a wide variety of situations. It automatically detects different time zones and shows a roaming clock with the local time and the default time zone, allowing users to manage or arrange their schedules more easily. Water Lock mode of the Galaxy Fit prevents the force of water from inadvertently activating any functions when users are swimming. 

With the Do Not Disturb (DND) Syncing feature, users can set DND mode on both their phones and their Galaxy Fit at the same time, which allows the smart device to automatically block notifications, helping users concentrate on their work.
