Samsung's Gear Fit2 and Gear Fit2 Pro are two admirable fitness trackers, and today Samsung released (opens in new tab) a software update for both that aims to make them even better for living your best and healthiest life.

First off, Samsung's bringing its Weight Management and Fitness Program features to the wearables. Weight Management will allow you to quickly compare your exercise and food intake throughout the day so you can keep an eye on how many calories you're burning and taking in, whereas Fitness Program enables you to control exercise routines on your phone or TV right from your wrist.

In addition to this, the Gear Fit2 and Fit2 Pro are also getting a slightly tweaked user interface to better-display information on their small screens.

The Workout Screen now shows three sets of customizable information, including things like calories burned, the duration of your workout, how far you've walked/run, heart-rate, etc. A new Multi-Workouts widget allows you to have quick access to your most-used workout types, and the Health Summary widget shows a breakdown of all your activity for the entire day.

This update is rolling out now to the Fit2 and Fit2 Pro through the Samsung Gear app, so be sure to keep an eye out for it over the next couple days.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro review: The best fitness tracker for most people

  • My GF2 is beat up and still working like a pro for 2 years now. I hope the 3rd gen successor lives up to this one. I love it. It's been great for my tracking.
  • Mines holding up like a champ at ~1.5years, I got it as a Note 7 preorder bonus. Battery life isn't as good but still goes for a full day but otherwise it works beautifully. Its way more stable and functional than it was the day I got it, too, so props to Samsung for doing a decent job on the software.
  • The updates and support I've seen for this wearable are seriously making me consider buying one.
