Samsung Gear Fit 2 gets early debut, leaks twice

Samsung is readying up a new fitness wearable, revealed ahead of time by…Samsung.

The South Korean tech giant accidentally posted – and swiftly removed – an image of the Gear Fit 2 to its S Health website. Whoops!

The new band (pictured above) looks unsurprisingly similar to the original Samsung Gear Fit, and comes in a black finish.

But wait, there’s more! Prolific tech tipster Evan Blass has also leaked an image that shows three different colour variants for the Samsung Gear Fit 2: black, pink, and blue.

Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t made any official announcements regarding a Gear Fit 2, so take any such leaks with due caution.

It’s not clear when Samsung plans to release the Gear Fit 2, but we’d expect a launch in either August or September, possibly alongside the rumoured Galaxy Note 6 unveiling.

The Gear Fit 2 is rumoured to feature a 1.84-inch AMOLED display, plus IP68 waterproof certification.
