Report: This Is What Apple’s Fitness Tracking App Looks Like
Unlike Samsung’s newly announced Gear Fit, which debuted at Mobile World Congress just weeks ago, the S Band doesn’t have a screen. This means the fitness tracker uses its sensors to gather health data and sends it to your smartphone, where you’ll be able to see information (burned calories, distance ran, etc.) through Samsung’s S Health app and Activity Tracker app. It’ll also be able to check your sleeping habits, the leaked brochure says: “Monitor your daily activities (Calories, Steps, Distance) and Sleep Efficiency.” Like some other wearable devices, the S Band claims it will send a buzz to your wrist if you’re receiving a call, an SMS message or if you stray too far from your phone. You can choose to wear the tracker as a clip or in a wristband in various colors including white, yellow, black and orange. It’ll likely tether to your phone via Bluetooth like most fitness wearables.

Samsung S Band Announced, Looks To Compete With Other Fitness Trackers
I like the size of the S Band, but Im not sure its necessary when Samsungs Gear Fit will more than do the job. After all, the Gear Fit has an impressive curved AMOLED http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/p90x3-reviews/sbwire-455028.htm display that makes me wanna buy it just because it has a curved display. How many fitness bands come with that kind of innovation? Still, Samsung wants to appeal to those who may want a basic, more affordable fitness band experience without paying as much out of pocket as consumers will pay for the Gear Fit.
