Gear Fit2 and Fit2 Pro now have a different way of showing information. The Workout widget is easier to read and displays three pieces of information. Depending on the type of exercise this can be customised to show distance traveled, calories burned, duration of exercise, heart rate and more.

The Health Summary widget has also been revamped, and now provides an overall overview of that day’s exercise. A widget has been added to store your favourite exercises as presets, providing you with a way to jump-start your activity.

The other important change is to do with the activity bands’ Weight Management and Fitness Program functions. This can now be connected to the Samsung Health app on your smartphone allowing you an easier way of tracking calories. Finally, the new Fitness Program allows you to access video content by connecting your activity tracker to your TV.
