Latest Gear Fit 2 update enhances its features

Samsung is rolling out a new software update for the Gear Fit 2 which improves its heart-rate and exercise-tracking abilities. It also brings new ways for users to maximize the impact of their training. The company says that this update is going to make fitness tracking more intuitive and effective.

For example, once a user completes an exercise with the Gear Fit 2, they will see a color-coded graph which will display time spent in various heart-rate zones. The graph will be broken down by level of exertion which ranges from Moderate to Maximum.

Samsung has also improved automatic activity detection with this update. When a user exercises for more than ten minutes, the Gear Fit 2 will automatically activate its fitness-tracking features. The map displayed after a user completes an auto-tracked workout will also display their approximate location.

The company has added support for customizable pace targets. Users can input their desired distance and time using the Samsung Health app and build a workout that’s tailored to their running goals. They can even choose between runs designed to help burn fat or increase cardio stamina. The device will guide users through every stage of the exercise.

Users will now be able to customize the information that’s displayed on the device’s display during workouts. They can swipe across the screen to see useful workout data like calories burned, distance traveled and heart-rate.

Improvements have also been made to the Gear Fit 2′s sleep tracking and inactivity tracking features. It’s even possible to send a quick SOS alert with the user’s location by triple pressing the Gear Fit 2′s home key.

The latest software update for the Gear Fit 2 is now available for download from the Samsung Gear app.
