Samsung is reported to introduce new product lineup in the wearable category including two fitness trackers known as Gear Fit Pro and Gear POP, which will run on its Tizen operating system. The company will be holding a Tizen Developer conference on May 16 and May 17, which will take place in San Francisco, California, where it will reportedly announce the upcoming smart wearables.
According to a report by Sammobile, the company will announce a fitness tracker known as Gear Fir Pro, which bears a model number SM-R365, while the Gear POP will have a model number SM-R600. However, little is known about the upcoming wearables, but the report mentions that it will be presumably linked to Samsung’s Simband health platform.
For the unintended, Simband health platform focuses health tracking technologies via the cloud. It was introduced in 2014 and the company also showed a reference wearable device that has the ability to measure different metrics including heart rate, oxygen level, body temperature, glucose levels, air quality and more.
Though there is no information about the Gear Fit Pro, but it looks likely to be a successor to the Samsung Gear Fit2. The fitness tracker was launched in India last year with a price tag of Rs 13,990. The Gear Fit 2 has a 1.5-inch Curved Super AMOLED display, 4 GB memory, GPS, accelerometer, Gyro sensor, barometer, and a built-in music player. On the display, users can check out notifications (call, SMS, calendar) as well as analytics of their workouts. Besides, the fitness band helps users to track their sleeping pattern apart from other activities like walking, cycling etc.
