Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 leaked again, likely to focus on maps

Purported publicity shots have emerged of the rumoured Samsung Gear Fit 2, set to launch this summer.

Tizen Cafe (via Engadget) has obtained the images claiming to show various aspects of the user experience.

The shots show the device in various states, including faces showing mapped routes, heart beat and distance.

Another shows the Gear Fit 2 in watch mode, while another focuses on steps and calories burned on a given day.

The images also show the rumoured pink and blue bands alongside the standard black strap.

Earlier this month Samsung leaked a photo of the Gear Fit 2, lending credence to today’s new photos.

Rumours have suggested the smart wearable will feature a 1.84-inch OLED screen, 4GB of on-board storage and built-in GPS.

The company could choose to launch the Gear Fit 2 alongside the Galaxy Note 6 at IFA in September. However, recent reports have also hinted at a release next month.

The original Gear Fit was released own 2014, but was criticised in a TrustedReviews  test citing poor battery life and a temperamental heart rate sensor.

Samsung has had a couple of years to get it right and, given the improvement in the company’s most recent wearables, we expect the Gear Fit 2 to cure some of the ills.
