Gear Fit is a fitness tracker from Samsung. It has an innovative and fresh design and is one of the prettiest trackers right now with an AMOLED display, that is the window for functions. Until now, the device had some issues. Users complained that the information is displayed only horizontally when they have it on their wrist, which was a bit awkward. Thankfully, Samsung just made an update for it. They developed the software as to show vertically information, an update that is well received by users and make the usage of Gear Fit more convenient.

    Purchase Gear Fit a week ago with my new S5 and am using it. Not sure on the accuracy of the distance while running. Need to run on a track or something with known distance. I had a doctor’s appointment and they took my heart rate. I used the Fit right after nurse got done and it was within 3 beats of what she said. I like the notifications and like having a watch again – don’t have to look at phone for the time.

What's my model number?

There are several ways to locate your model number:

Option 1
On your device, go to Settings, then "About device" and scroll down to "Model number"
Option 2
Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
Option 3
Using Samsung's model/serial number location tool
