Samsung Gear Fit Pro announcement may be immanent

Samsung may be preparing to unveil a couple of new products at the Tizen Developer event which takes place on May 16th and 17th in San Francisco.

According to specialist blog Sammobile, one of these is a new fitness tracker called Gear Fit Pro, which will run on the Tizen operating system. The South Korean manufacturer has already trademarked the name earlier this year. The tracker bears a model number SM-R365, but aside from that little else is known.

It is rumoured that the fitness tracker will launch alongside a new device called Gear Pop. It will ship under model number SM-R600, but again, no other details are available.

Gear Fit Pro is likely to be the successor to Gear Fit 2 which was launched in June last year. Gear Fit 2 came equipped with a slew of features, such as a standalone music player, increased memory storage, and a 1.5 inch super AMOLED curved display created with maximum visibility in mind.

In terms of sensors, the major bump in specs came from the inclusion of a built-in GPS and barometer. The GPS allows you to track walking, running, cycling and other activites, with mapped routes showing directly on the tracker’s screen. The barometre counts floors. The feature-packed device also sports a heart rate sensor, gyroscope and accelorometer. The heart rate sensor takes a reading every 10 minutes, and more often during exercise.
