Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 review: Gone fishing

23 February 2013
Modern smartphones are essential tools for urbanites, but they are usually left behind on a trip to the great outdoors. Not the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 though, it will gladly join in the adventure and isn't afraid of a few knocks or a dive...

Actually that's not correct anymore, the Garmin Fenix supports BT4.0!

Don't overestimate the importance of bluetooh 4.0 for fitness devices users. There is no one heartrate monitor with wirst watch working on bluetooh 4.0. All of them are working on ANT+. There are only bluetooth 4.0 sensors, but if you want check you hartrate or cadence you must unlock phone screen - it is very uncomfortable while you are running.
The only solution for fitness fans is old sony-ericsson xperia ANT+ enabled phone for recording and audio coaching and Garimin or Timex watch for easy check your pace and heart rate.

I rather pay less and get more with BLU tank 4.5. Slimmer, smaller, bigger LCD screen

If I want a waterproof & dust proof phone then Xperia Z is ultimate choice n if it's expensive then u can get Xperia V much more better than this outdated galaxy
