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.
