Samsung Galaxy Fit release date, price, news and features

The Samsung Galaxy Fit has now been announced alongside the smaller, lower-end Galaxy Fit E.

It doesn't look like this is set to be the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro sequel we had all expected though. Both are far cheaper devices with less premium looking designs than Samsung's last fitness tracker.

The company announced the new trackers alongside the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy S10 family. Below we'll run you through all of the details you need to know about both the Galaxy Fit and Fit E.

Cut to the chaseWhat is it? Samsung's next fitness tracker duoWhen is it out? Unveiled February 20, out later in the yearWhat will it cost? Main tracker costs $99 / £89Samsung Galaxy Fit release date and price

An exact release date for the Samsung Galaxy Fit has yet to be unveiled, but the company has said it hopes to bring the tracker to market at some point during Q2.

Previous rumors have suggested a May 21 release date in the US, but we can't confirm that yet. For the price, we know it's set to cost $99 / £89 but we don't currently have information for Australia.

The Galaxy Fit E meanwhile is set to cost $35 / £35, but we don't know pricing for Australia yet.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit is a far less premium looking fitness tracker than the Gear Fit 2 Pro, but it sports a 0.95-inch Full Color AMOLED display with a resolution of 120 x 240.

That's 282 pixels per inch, and should offer a clearer picture than a lot of other fitness trackers with black and white displays.

The Galaxy Fit E's screen is a lot less impressive, with a 0.74-inch black and white PMOLED display and a resolution of 64 x 128. That's 193 pixels per inch.

Both trackers come in black, while the Galaxy Fit also comes in a silver shade. The Fit E is available in both white and Canary Yellow, which should be suitable for you if you're after a bolder design.

These have similar designs to other fitness bands, with thin straps and they're lightweight too. The Galaxy Fit is only 24g even with the silicone strap while the Fit E is 15g with its strap included.

The Galaxy Fit is 18.3 x 44.6 x 11.2mm while the Fit E is a bit smaller in every way at 16 x 40.2 x 10.9mm. If you're looking for a lightweight and easy to wear fitness tracker, these are sure to be suitable for you.

Both trackers are also waterproof up to 50 meters, allowing you to take them in the pool without having to worry about frying them.

Fitness is likely the reason you're looking at this health band, and Samsung has packed it full of basic features. Both are capable of step-tracking and will automatically monitor your movements so they'll know when you've started a walk, run or bike ride.

The Galaxy Fit range can also track general dynamic workouts, but they don't come with the sizable selection of automatic exercises that you'll find on the Galaxy Watch Active. Instead, you'll find 90 different types of workout within the Samsung Health app that you'll have to manually select before you start them.

Samsung has also said there are both sleep analysis and smart stress management features on both trackers, but we've yet to learn exactly what they'll be able to do. 

Both trackers feature heart rate monitors - although we don't know what type of tech is being used here - but only the Galaxy Fit features a gyroscope.

The Galaxy Fit features a heart rate tracker, but you won't get that if you opt for the Fit E. Neither of these come with GPS either, and there's no clarification on whether the Fit will include Connected GPS features.

Samsung has retooled its software for the new trackers with a new design called Realtime OS, which the company believes is more intuitive. According to Samsung, the new design is "simple and intuitive".

The chipset inside the Galaxy Fit is an MCU Cortex M33F 96MHz. We don't currently know what sort of power it will provide, but it's sure to power the tracker well enough to run basic services.

The Galaxy Fit E has an MCU Cortex M0 96MHz. Samsung has also included a small amount of storage on the Galaxy Fit and Fit E, but this won't be for your own use so you won't be able to play music through these.

The Galaxy Fit charges wirelessly and has a 120mAh cell inside that the company expects to last for "around a week". The cell inside the Fit E is a 70mAh one and the company also expects that to last for around a week.
