Pros:__________• Water resistant works. I tested this in the pool and in the shower, and it’s still running. One helpful option they provided was a water lock setting in the fit. This setting prevents the screen from activating when water hits it. No issues yet.• Super lightweight and comfortable. The strap is silicone and doesn’t feel cheap.• Gorilla glass screen is a plus. When you buy something like this, it’s good to have a least some form of upgraded glass.• I love the screen. Its AMOLED brings out not only the brightness but vivid colors and deep blacks. On a sunny day, I was able to view this without any issue of glares or poor viewing angles. Very colorful and sharp, well done.• Also with better sharpness, I find it easier quickly distinguish certain datasets when I’m working out (Both cardio and weights).• Very low profile. It will not turn heads and that’s what a fitness tracker should do. You use it to work out, not to socialize.• I have small-medium size wrists, and this tracker size is small enough to hide under my shirt cuffs,• Daily use I’m happy to say it’s not a dust magnet. Both the device and the strap.• I know you can customize your strap look, but you’ll need to pay for the additional straps.• The software is very simplistic. Only one, tiny, button on the Fit, and a majority of the interaction is on the screen.• It’s insane how much you can do in this tiny thing. You can easily add and arrange widgets, using the app, and you can manage the apps that send notifications to the tracker, so you won’t get bombarded. You can even get notified if you’ve been sitting too long. What I found very impressive is that you can choose from 90 different workout sessions (no I haven’t tried them all). Not only that but when I’m doing my cardio run, the fit will automatically detect it.• I found the heart rate monitor sport on. I used the 10-minute feature instead of the consistent use in order to save battery life.• The health app overall I the same if you ever used a Fitbit or any fitness app. A lot of info, graphs, and workout history. The more info is the better.• Quick Bluetooth connectivity.• One more feature I admire is the auto –pause. This works most if you’re in the city and you have to stop and wait to cross the street. This feature will recognize when you’re stopping and going. I don’t live that deep in the city, but I can see this help to those who are.Cons and Oks:__________• You have to spend some time customizing your screen because, without the proper organization, your notifications will get cramped.• A big letdown that there is no GPS tracking.• Another big letdown there is no storage of music. I hate running with my phone, but if you want GPS and music, you have no choice.• It’s a beautiful screen, but it’s still small. Many times my data or notifications would be cut on screen, because of how long it was (which were not long in the first place).• You’re given so many features, it was a little disappointing that the watch feature is very limited. It’s very basic.• You can read larger notifications, but you’re going to be swiping forever. The goal I believe is to interact with this fit as little as possible. Issues like these, contradict it.• For me, it took some time in getting used to removing the band because of how it was locked in place.• To light up the screen you need to press the button, but overtime doing this I start wishing if I could just touch the screen to light it up. It’s a small issue that is growing to be a nuisance. But note that if you raise your hand, the screen will turn on, but not all time, especially if I’m lying in bed.• The sleep tracker is decent. Nothing really special, but I did notice a couple of times the fit began tracking my sleep before I was asleep. Laying down watching TV or reading for a decent amount of time will trick the system. But still, almost all fitness tracker do this.• Working out 4 days a week (2 cardio run, 2 Weights), each an hour long, I’m getting close to five days of battery life. I know Samsung states a week, but I think this only applies to those who just want to track basic fitness (walking, maybe a little jog, but that’s it).• No wireless charging. With Samsung’s S10 charging feature, I’ve would of expect this to fall right in, but no.Bottom Line:__________If you like to run then this may be down your alley. I admire the quality built, as it’s sturdy and light. The screen is beautiful and you’re given as much data as you want. From heart rate, sleeping, distance, calories burned, and so on, the Fit is the nail on the coffin in what it can provide.Someone who lifts weights, I found this not the best tool because if you’re not doing your training with both arms at the same time, then the accuracy of this fit will be cut in half. Even with its 90 workout programs, this fitness tracker still faces the issues that almost all trackers face in the market. Still, for the price, I’ll use it for a jog anytime (just still have to bring my phone, unfortunately)Overall: A great fitness tracker for the daily life of a runner or a basic tracker for the daily life of a person.Hope I was a help to you.Love,Honest Reviewer.

Honestly very disappointed in this tracker. It uses Samsung health app to log activity but as soon as you take a measurement like stress level or o2 the app stops using the tracker (disconnect tracker and re-connect to fix)And if you start a actual exercise in Samsung health the tracker should keep track of at least the steps right? WRONG IT WONT TRACK ANYTHING IN EXERSIZES means you have to keep the phone on you during exercise to track steps. So what’s the point of the fitness tracker…Came on time at least…
It’s a basic fitness tracker but accurate. It is not a smaller galaxy watch or anything like that. If you want to accurately track your workouts and that’s all, this it it. If you want to store music, respond to texts, make phone calls? This ain’t it. Spend the extra $100 on the watches. Also it works best with a Samsung phone not other android phones
Received this on Saturday. Today is Monday and it just will not pair with my IPhone. The manual and various YouTube videos have mentioned an app that isn’t on Apple so I’m assuming that it’s been replaced by an Galaxy Fit app that is available. Have tried everything and sent three emails to Samsung’s help line that have not been answered. Ready to give up, return it and get the Fitbit Inspire HR.It is now Thursday and I have called the Samsung Support line and the woman I spoke to was no help at all. She ended up transferring me to a “Mac tech” who turned out to be Just Answer, a paid-for site. Gave them my credit card number to get an answer. Chatted with the”Mac tech” for over an hour and never got a solution – was told the device was probably defective. Wanted to cancel my new Just Answer membership so they couldn’t keep charging my card and was left on hold because only a supervisor can cancel memberships. Will have to contact my card to block Just Answer charges. Returned the Galaxy Fit today. Wasted too much time on this.

I bought this because I am trying to loose weight and become a healthier me. I am not an experienced health guru so this product works great for what I need it for.It does not track exercise you have to manually do that from your phone, but it does track sleep, hear rate, o2 stats and steps while exercising.I recieved notifications for my social media, emails, phone calls and text. For phone calls and text it will show me while it vibrates who it is.I’ve had this device now for 3 days and my battery is still around 60% which is easily found in the wearable app. You can also change the face and add widgets to the device through the wearable app as well. So my device not only counts my steps but tells me the date, time, weather, calories burned, hours slept, heart beat and also my calendar.If you are looking for something simple this is definitely a good choice in my opinion.
I’ve been using this tracker for about a week and so far I like it but am wishing I had spent a little more for the step up model fit. As a simple tracker this device has met my expectations and allowed me to keep track of steps, heart rate and sleeping patterns.In conjunction with the Samsung Health app I am able to monitor my calories in and calories out and keep track of the calorie deficit I wish to achieve.I have two main gripes with the product knocking this one down a star. Firstly is the short battery life. With constant heart rate tracking turned on I am getting about three and a half to four days of use before needing a recharge. With this feature turned off you can expect almost double that. This is not such a big hassle for me as I can find down time during the evening to charge it. Charge time is about an hour and a half.My second issue and bigger concern is that auto tracking of exercises does not work as well as I would hope. Most exercises you have to start and stop tracking within the phone app and not the watch itself. The watch then sends your heart rate and steps to the phone during work outs. Samsung states that exercises such as running and walking do auto track with this watch, but unfortunately for me this feature only worked spotty at best. It then completely stopped working after the first three days, meaning I either have to keep my phone with me when I jog or manually enter the run in the phone app and include details such as time and distance once the jog is over. It can be hard to keep track of these things if I don’t remember to make a note of them before starting.The regular fit allows you to add a set of your favorite exercises to the watch itself. From there you can start and stop tracking within the watch and not need to have your phone with you when exercising. This is the biggest omission between the fit and the fit e, and the reason I am wishing I had purchased the fit instead of this.In conclusion this watch is good for the most basic of functions but tracking exercises relies too heavily on the phone app. If you can live with that and keep your phone with you when working out it’s a good buy and will save you some money over the regular fit. However if you would like to be untethered from your phone while working out the regular fit might be the better buy for you. The regular fit also has a slightly larger color screen and bigger battery which would be nicer.I will continue to use this band as it does what I need it to at the moment, but I may consider giving this one to my wife and buying the regular fit for myself down the line.

It is not connecting to the iphone. How can I do it? I’ve got an app Samsung fit, but it is not working with.

Over priced. Product returned. Very cheap looking

I thought I would really like this and I did until it would no longer charge. Have had it less than 3 weeks. Very disappointed. Guess I’ll go back to Fitbit

This could be so much more but the functionality and accuracy are pathetic. I have the original Samsung Gear and it can do more than this can! Please check out what options there are for watch faces very limited what info can be displayed also they can not be modified for colors or fonts. You are stuck with what you get. Tracking is way off too I typically get ~300 calories per 30 min of working out. With this I only got 100 in 30 min and I’m now dripping wet!Great battery life and comfortable but the clasp is weird but didn’t give it time to get used to.DO NOT BUY!
So, you want a Galaxy Fit, but don’t need the amoled display or the $99? Well, you can cut the price in half, and get this from overseas. Presenting the Galaxy Fit e!The Galaxy Fit e currently isn’t sold in the USA, but that’s not a huge problem for us Americans.Just download the Galaxy Wearable App, the Samsung Connectivity Service (it will prompt you) and the Galaxy Fit plugin for Galaxy Wear, and of course, Samsung Health to get everything started.Mine came with the Ebin in wearable en telefone or something to that effect. That just means, open up your phone and use the wareable app. Since it’s not sold in the USA (or apparently the UK for that matter, at least with mine) it will likely come in spanish or German initially. But once you pair it with the Wearable app, it will switch to English.After pairing with it and sign in with Samsung Health, you’re able to use it for basic steps tracking and heart rate monitoring. The heart rate monitoring sucks up battery life like a fiend, so you might want to avoid leaving it on all the time. If you set up a exercise like walking from the Samsung Health app, it will start up the heart rate monitoring.Also, if the Galaxy Fit e detects that you’re walking constantly for about 10 minutes or more, it will start it’s own tracking by default. You can turn this off in the Samsung Health App in Galaxy Fit e Settings under “Workout detection”.

The watch often locks up while riding the bicycle and you need to reboot it! The time is large enough but all other info is so small you cannot read it without a magnifying glass. Plus in the sunlight (we do exercise outside, right?) it is even more difficult to read. The band is very odd for it requires you to tuck it under for there is no loop included to tuck the spare part of the band over (so I made one with Starbucks’ coffee fastener, as shown here). It requires 2 or 3 apps but it does seem to recognize automatically your specific exercise, although instructions say you must do the exercise 10 minutes before it is recognized. I don’t know if it retroactively adds those 10 minutes. I’m keeping it because heart rate seems accurate and that is most important. But I am not happy at all having to lug a magnifying glass everywhere I go to read it. The Fitbit I tried had even smaller numbers and was a bit more expensive. A very small firmware code change is needed to make the numbers that you want large enough to read in bright sunlight and without a magnifying glass. Plus I should be able to speak to it to show the data I want front and center and large!!! In 2019 this product from Samsung (and Fitbit) seems in the Dark Ages so is very disappointing, though necessary so I don’t over extend my heart rate.
Sliding to a new screen is very difficult. I have to firmly press down very hard in order to see the next screen. Very disappointing.

It is not an “international version”. It has Spanish manual only.”E” version is also weaker compared to the regular Galaxy Fit that you can buy for a little bit more.And by the way, it requires Samsung smartphone.

Good and Accurate… and most importantly the trusted brand…
Valerie Schmidt –
I had a Fitbit for years. This surpasses it.

The Galaxy Fit has a good concept, and his very comfortable and accurate. However, it has poor battery life, and is a very slow product. Music Controls aren’t intuitive. Paying full price for this product that does not even integrate with many Samsung products in any special way is mistake. Avoid this and look for something else.
This is the best band I’ve purchased thus far its battery lasts 2.5 days and has multiple options for the face. Totally Recommend
Adriana Walton –
Not even remotely accurate. It counts the arm motions and misses most steps. I work at a desk 12 hours a day and take less than 1k but it will count over 5k. Then when I walk 6k steps it will only count about 3k because my arm stays on my granddaughter’s stroller. I bought it for more accurate count so I wouldn’t have to carry my phone around with me continuously but at this point my phone is still more accurate.
I’ve had several fitness trackers over the years. But for the last year I’ve been using the Samsung health app and I love the app. But I had to keep my phone on me to track my steps and that can be inconvenient. I bought this since it’s for that app and I love it. It’s comfortable. Not bulky. Doesn’t get in the way. Great at keeping track of steps and workouts. I love the sleep tracking feature. Samsung wear app is easy to use to set your watch up easily. And the price is phenomenal! The least expensive fit tracker I found on the Samsung website was 99 dollars. It’s a great buy. Highly recommend.

It’s a lot smaller than expected. About half the size of my Galaxy Fit 2, and more similar to the size of those frendship bands. it’s very basic. Steps, heart rate, waterprofing, and basic messages. And by basic messages, it just gives a highlight, and not the complete message. A charge lasts a good 3 days with constant day use.Overall, this fits my needs perfectly. It’s small and light enough for when I don’t want to wear my Fenix all the time around the house. And it’s cheap enough when I want to wear a watch that requires a higher probability of loss or damage.

I really enjoyed this product when I first received it. It was comfortable and had good battery life. Unfortunately after I went swimming with it twice the bottom of the screen began to lose resolution(see pictures). Now it is difficult to read some of the info on the bottom of the screen.
