Samsung has released the much-awaited Galaxy Fit in some markets today. Spain, Italy, and South Korea are among the markets to get the device initially. The wearable is priced at €99 in the European countries, whereas in South Korea, it costs 118,800 won (~€90).
Samsung announced the Galaxy Fit back in February, along with its cheaper version, the Galaxy Fit e. The Fit e, which costs €39.99, went on sale earlier this month. The Galaxy Fit should also be available in more markets soon. It comes in black and silver and weighs just 23 grams.
Galaxy Fit and Fit e are almost equally capable fitness trackers
Despite such a huge gap in pricing, the Galaxy Fit and the Galaxy Fit e are almost equally capable fitness trackers. Both can track activities like biking, hiking and running, have MIL-STD-810G military-grade ruggedness certification, and are water-resistant for up to 10 minutes at a depth of 50 meters. You also get automatic motion detection as well as sleep, stress, and heart-rate tracking in both devices.
However, the two wearables differ significantly in some hardware aspects. The Galaxy Fit features a 0.95-inch Full Color AMOLED display and packs a 120 mAh battery. The Galaxy Fit e, meanwhile, gets a 0.74-inch monochrome PMOLED display, as well as a smaller 70 mAh battery. Also, the Galaxy Fit comes with notification interactions, whereas the Fit e only supports incoming notifications without the option to respond.
