Don't own a Samsung device...

Nice try though...

rj160202 says:

Maybe you'll smarten up sometime, then. That or work on your sarcasm wit

bbarend says:

Well Amazon does only list compatibility with Samsung devices. Perhaps your wit needs some work as well.

This is not the android wear, only compatible with Samsung devices. I really want one but I also have no real use for one. So the want does not outweigh the need for this. Sadly I'll pass.

DWR_31 says:

I feel really bad for all the people that bought Samsung watches that aren't using Android Wear.

Smarten up? Why buy a $700 piece of plastic that is going to lag? Seems pointless. S Lag ftw?

Troll spotted! Close the gate!

ಠ益ಠ

Trolls don't speak hard truths.

Yea he's not trolling, Samsung lag is obvious.

mwara244 says:

Sad when a device with an 800 series processors with 2 GB ram still lags, especially with the dam home button slowing everything down. I'll never use another Samsung device again, unless a GPE device finally comes to Verizon. Can't wait for the Moto X +1

mlemos89 says:

If you disable s voice the home button does not lag. It only lags since it takes a double press to get to s voice troll. My S5 works fine.

axllebeer says:

Forgot I could do this. Just switched it off on my S4 Mini.

I own several Samsung devices, but I'd never buy a device that only works with Samsung's stuff. Just like it doesn't make sense to buy movies/music from HTC or Samsung apps, etc. You can only use on said brands. The smart thing to do is buy things made for Google so it works across all.

It works on my M7.

No joke. I'd suggest trying it in a store first, though.

Also, you'll need the GearFitManager.apk file.

So, Apples iWatch will work across all Android devices? STFU Troll.

My mom is currently looking for a fitness tracker. Alas, she has an HTC One M7.

Sdot312 says:

The Fit works for notifications with some non-Samsung devices including the HTC One M7 and M8 if you sideload the Samsung Fit manager app. I have one working with my M8. There's a thread on XDA that details it.

It would have been a decent price a month ago but the future is with Android Wear. And I don't know if I will own a Samsung device after this year. Google could release a Nexus phone that I won't be able to resist. At least with Android wear I know it will work with any new device I buy.

Great for notifications. Not so great for fitness tracking.

codeda says:

I'd probably be tempted if I had a Samsung phone. I always liked the fit

avenging says:

darn thats a great price just bought mine a few days ago lol

jlczl says:

Does this device work on non Samsung phones? If it does then I can see it selling well. If it doesn't.......well it obviously won't. Not just because not everyone has a Samsung device but also because most don't want to have a paper weight if/when they choose a different phone later.

avenging says:

one thing for sure this watch commands a lot of attention in the gym or when you're out at night from curious people hehe

ChuckG73 says:

Why would I spend money on it when I would have to use a work around to have it work with my nexus 5. Just spend 100 more bucks and get the Gear Live or wait and spend more on the Moto 360...

Posted via Android Central App

I picked it up at Best Buy for the same price yesterday. Great deal! They will price match if it's gone back up for some reason. I'm so excited to give it to my fiance!

Posted via Android Central App

If I had a Samsung phone I would be all over this.

ಠ益ಠ

theShiz says:

You'd regret that. I have a several Samsungs. Why buy a device that only works on one brand?

Posted via Android Central App

I don't get your logic.

ಠ益ಠ

If you currently have a (compatible) Samsung smartphone, you could use the Gear Fit. But what if you later switch to a non-Samsung phone? The Gear Fit would then be useless or at least a lot less useful anyways.

My original comment suggests I am fully aware of that.

Cubfan says:

Got one. Thanks for the tip! All the other smartwatches out there are too big for my taste or call way too much attention to themselves. Fitness trackers are more accepted, and this should work nicely.

avenging says:

Cubfan thats why i chose it over both gears it just looks stylish. the problem is the band color only black is available and cant find other colors to buy

avenging says:

wonder why they would slash 50% though right there in their site it says #1 best-seller for smartwatches and accessories (still sore over paying more than 200 USD for mine lol)

crxssi says:

Because Google Wear makes it obsolete. The Fit is proprietary, works only with Samsung phones, and will likely see no enhancements.

This is so tempting. Currently own the Note 3, but am planning on switching to the G3. Decisions. Decisions.

Posted via Android Central App

avenging says:

some parts could work with the G3. read in xda it works with a lot of recent android phones

Ok thanks I will look into that.

Posted via Android Central App

avenging says:

at that price it's a steal lol. and it looks stylish on the wrist to boot

netsyseng says:

Yup. Comment is yup

buffdaddy72 says:

Price is attractive, but don't think it will work with my G2.

Ferno_sk says:

Bought mine. Thanks for the "notification", haha.
I actually believe the android wear line will be better, and the Moto 360 looks great. Still, I wanna start with a small device, and the Gear Fit is the "small" I was looking for.
Here in Brazil the price is the equivalent of U$400. Luckly, a friend is traveling in the US now.

avenging says:

in the philippines its hella expensive too much more expensive than here (Middle East), so that's a good price to have it

OviMicula says:

Picked one up for $99 at Best Buy yesterday. Pretty neat gadget so far. Love the screen

avenging says:

be careful not to lose the charging adapter as its small and i think i might have lost mine (hopefully im wrong).

bhatech says:

I would have probably bought but Samsung I don't own your crappy touchwiz phone.

kbo says:

Best Buy has the same $99 deal. My wife bought one yesterday. The screen had a defect. One corner had a decent size chunk that did not work. She returned it and decided she would wait to see what android wear watches were coming out in the near future.

rocket321 says:

Pass because I'm leaving Samsung devices due to the Knox locked bootloaders.

patfactorx says:

You knew these were going to go on sale pretty quickly. No one wanted these since Fitbit is already an established brand.

Posted via Android Central App

avenging says:

right in the amazon website you can see the gear fit is their #1 best-seller in smartwatches

crxssi says:

But compared to WHAT? It is pretty easy to be #1 in an almost non-market. That is all about to change. Within just one month, there will probably be more Wear devices sold than the YEARS of everything else combined. That is why the Fit is obsolete and that is why they are clearancing them out.

Now if you know the limitations and don't care, then go for it!

azsdfsd says:

He was clearly comparing it to the fitbit

PlanetPluto7 says:

Mine works very well. Glad I got it.No Android Wear or even Tizen right now though. Battery is good. About 2 days. Current watch face is one of my photos.

TheNexusMan says:

Oh, silly Samsung. I would buy this RIGHT NOW if I had a Samsung phone. But I don't, and it's not cross compatible. Like I thought... the Moto 360 will be my 1st wearable.

fightcrazy says:

Great deal for anyone in the Samsung phone.

jdmorin says:

Just got an S5 and love it.

Pondering getting this.. So tempted!

It's the same price at Best Buy too :)

I am from india, on india's site its showing the same price, no discount..
What to do, i want to buy it

tvouge says:

For $100? Yeah I'm down. I understand that the last update from about a month ago really made the pedometer more accurate. They should have started with this price point at launch...

Posted via Android Central App

Cubfan says:

IMO, this looks way better than all the other Smartwatches, including the Moto 360. Had an Amazon $50 credit, which made it $50. I'll get on Android Wear when Gen 2 hits next year.

Chocu1a says:

Price shows 143.99.

davidusr says:

I'm getting that too!

ahmedxking says:

I have no real use for this. Galaxy Gear 2 is better.

Posted via Android Central App

azsdfsd says:

Of course gear 2 is better but this is cheaper and sleeker

yearoftherat says:

Personally, I would get something else.

cs806j says:

No go for me. I'd rather spend the money on a Gear Live or Moto 360.

azsdfsd says:

Well that didn't last too long did it? They raised the price again

TKL74 says:

Wow, didn't know it has such a horrible review.
