A Few Necessary Apps For Samsung Gear Fit 2
The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is the latest fitness band from Samsung and its packed with new features, new apps, and an entirely new design. The Fit 2 has become more of a crossover between a fitness tracking band and a smartwatch. It is only available to Android users for now, but that means it has access to a large library of compatible Android apps.
The Basic Functions
Aside from unique Android Apps, the Samsung Gear Fit 2 has plenty of basic tracking functions that you will likely find useful. It can auto-detect movement and track the number of steps you take. It also tracks your sleeping habits and your calories burned.
Its fitness detection capabilities are rather impressive. It can tell if you are walking, running, doing pushups, practicing yoga, or bench pressing. It then logs the detected activity all for your safe keeping. Overall, it is an incredibly impressive device even without the additional apps. Now let’s take a look at some of those apps and how they can help you use your Fit 2 or meet your fitness goals.
The Gear App
The one app that everyone with a Fit 2 needs is the Samsung Gear App. This is the primary application that is used to connect your Android to your fitness band. It monitors the Fit 2 as well as all of the additional apps installed using the Gear Apps menu. It is required for setting up the Fit 2 initially and afterward can be used to download new apps.
Aside from being used to boot the Fit 2 it also handles software updates, connections, app downloading, and for finding a lost Fit 2. It can also be used to move music from the phone to the Fit. Using it is extremely simple. Just open the app on the Android and then pair with the Fit using Bluetooth.
The S Health App
The S Health App is another recommended application that you may find yourself using quite often. Its basic function is to pull in the data provided by the Gear Fit and then to create graphs, lists, trends, and plans using that data. It shows you what you are doing and what you need to be doing to meet certain goals.
S Health also has a nifty challenges feature that can add a little fun to your workout routine. Challenges are created between you and your friends, and then you both compete while wearing your Gear Fit 2 to reach certain goals. S Health is also compatible with Google Fit if you are already building a report there.
More To Come
These are just a couple of the necessary apps you need to enjoy your Gear Fit 2. As mentioned, it is a cross between a fitness band and a smartwatch. It can support a host of different apps that are fitness related, some entertaining, and some just for visuals. Finally, it also supports a Spotify app so you can listen to your favorite tunes while you workout.
