Samsung Gear Fit: Features And Pictures As New Fitness Band Hits UK

Samsung has released its new Gear Fit curved smartwatch and fitness band alongside the new Galaxy S5 smartphone.

The Gear Fit packs a pedometer and exercise tracker alongside its heart-rate monitor.

It also features notifications from compatible smartphones, media controls and more into its tiny, curved frame.

The device undoubtedly looks futuristic and is extremely attractive in person. It's a little thicker than you might expect, but it doesn't show when it's on the wrist.

It also benefits from an update this week which lets you orient the display vertically - when we saw it back at MWC the watch could only be read horizontally, which was a little non-sensical to our eyes.

Take a look at the video above to learn more about the features of this unique little device.
