Samsung trademarks "Gear Fit Pro", new smart band incoming

Peter, 27 January 2017

The Samsung Gear Fit2 smart band launched a couple of months ahead of the Gear S3 smartwatches and now we may be in for an early upgrade. Samsung trademarked the name “Gear Fit Pro” suggesting an even more feature-rich band.

Microsoft gave up on its Band but if anything, the competition is heating up. HTC partnered with Under Armour to create the three-piece HealthBox, Meizu is making the H1 SmartBand, Fitbit (known for its fitness trackers) bought Pebble, Nokia acquired health gadget maker Withings and there are plenty of other players in this field.

Perhaps Samsung can leverage its Samsung Pay service and new additions like the Bixby digital assistant to put its band above the others. Or maybe we're getting a proper foldable display?
