The fundamental Samsung Galaxy Fit data comes from the picture under, which was taken from Samsung’s official Galaxy Wearable app. In different phrases, Samsung appears to have by chance outed the machine earlier than it has been introduced.From the design, this appears to be like much like earlier Samsung health trackers, with an oblong display and a possible silicone band, proven right here in black. It additionally appears to be like to have a coloration display, as we would anticipate.Beyond the design, it additionally appears to be like like two fashions are within the works, as the image is labeled ‘Galaxy Fit / Fit e’.This is not the primary time we have heard these names.
Samsung trademarked the title Galaxy Fit in May 2018.That report got here alongside the Samsung Galaxy Watch trademark, which turned out to be the title of Samsung’s newest smartwatch, so even earlier than Samsung roughly confirmed it, Galaxy Fit (quite than Gear Fit 3 or the rest) was our greatest guess for the title.
We’ve additionally beforehand seen a Bluetooth certification itemizing for a Samsung Galaxy Fit E, so the point out of that mannequin in Samsung’s leak is not any shock both.So far there aren’t another Samsung Gear Fit 3 rumors, however whereas we look ahead to extra to roll in we are able to speculate on a couple of issues.

What we need to see
While there aren’t many rumors in regards to the Galaxy Fit as but, there are many issues we wish from it, corresponding to the next.
1. A easy setup
Setting up the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro is a clunky expertise, thanks primarily to the necessity to obtain a number of apps onto your cellphone simply to get probably the most out of it.So for the Gear Fit 3 we’d wish to see an easier, extra streamlined setup course of that means that you can get correctly up and working (actually) in a matter of minutes.
2. Better battery life
With restricted utilization you’ll get two to a few days of life out of the Gear Fit 2 Pro and simply in the future with heavy use, which isn’t terrible however definitely isn’t nice.While we’re used to charging our smartwatches day by day, health trackers usually handle to final a little bit longer, so we’d wish to see an additional day or so added to the lifetime of the Galaxy Fit.
3. A dependable barometer
The Samsung Gear Fit 2’s barometer wasn’t all the time accurate
One situation we famous with the Gear Fit 2 was that water may mess with the barometer, inflicting it to suppose you’ve walked up many extra flights of stairs than you even have.We’re not anticipating this to be a problem with the Samsung Galaxy Fit however we’ll definitely be disenchanted whether it is.
4. An affordable value
While the Gear Fit 2 Pro isn’t wallet-weepingly costly it did launch at a better value than the Gear Fit 2, and that’s regardless of solely being barely improved and touchdown over a yr later, so there’s a fear that the Gear Fit 3 might be a dear wearable, however we hope Samsung retains the value aggressive.
5. Spotify pre-installed
It’s a small level, however regardless of Spotify (and particularly its offline mode) being the most effective options of the Gear Fit 2 Pro, it didn’t come pre-installed, although a bunch of apps did, so we’d wish to see the music streamer able to exit of the field for the Samsung Galaxy Fit.
6. A refreshed design
The Samsung Gear Fit 3 may do with a design refresh
The Gear Fit 2 Pro has a reasonably good design, but it surely’s additionally just about precisely the identical because the design of the Gear Fit 2, so we’d wish to see Samsung freshen issues up a bit for the Gear Fit 3, and even simply give patrons a larger number of colours to select from.
7. A major improve
The Gear Fit 2 Pro is an completed health tracker, but it surely’s solely a small improve on the Gear Fit 2, so for Samsung to remain related and excite us we wish some huge upgrades from the Galaxy Fit.That may take the type of new sensors, extra metrics, larger accuracy, improved smartwatch options or any variety of different issues, however we hope Samsung does one thing to make it stand out.
