The water resistance does get an upgrade, though, as it is called out for 5 ATM versus the IP68 immersion protection of the Gear Fit 2 - not exactly swimmer-friendly. Separate from the Gear Sport that recently popped up on the FCC's watch, Samsung is now expected to pair the an update to the Gear Fit 2.
Additionally the Fit 2 Pro will support music playback and even while offline through the Spotify app and feature Global Positioning System functionality.
Like its predecessor, the Gear Fit 2 Pro is powered by Samsung's Tizen OS and features a built-in GSP chip for mapping your runs and jogs even when your smartphone isn't on you.
Samsung will apparently offer a year's subscription to Under Armour's "premium" digital service, allowing for better training. As of now, there are no details regarding the pricing and availability.
Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro has recently been certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US and the fitness tracker with model number SM-365 has also appeared on the official Samsung site in the past weekend.
The Samsung Gear Fit is a fitness wristband made by Samsung Electronics and forms part of their Samsung Gear family of smartwatch devices. It features a 1.84-inch Super AMOLED display with a 432×128 pixel resolution.
A 210mAh battery powers the Samsung Gear Fit, which gives a typical usage of 3 to 4 days and up to 5 days with low usage.
Samsung introduced the Gear Fit to the market on April 11, 2014.
The company's latest feature-packed fitness band will come along with several improvements from the original device.
