The "Fit" packs a curved 1.8-inch 432 x 128 Super AMOLED display. It's dust and water resistant to keep up with whatever brutal fitness regimen you're undertaking. As usual, you'll be able to get smartphone notifications from just about everything on the Gear Fit thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity. But keep in mind that the Gear Fit will only work with Samsung devices, but given all of the tracking software built in, that limitation may be worthwhile. The 210 mAh battery should last you 3 - 4 days of typical usage, according to Samsung's official spec sheet.
On the inside it's powered by a specially-designed Cortex M4 processor from ARM, and like the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo it runs the Tizen mobile operating system.
The Samsung Gear Fit connects to your Samsung smartphone through the Gear Fit Manager app which can be used to load applications and control the watch in other ways.
The device launches globally alongside the Galaxy S5 on April 11. A day-one software update adds portrait mode support, making it easier to read information on the Gear Fit's display.
