The average man in Singapore clocks in a minimum of 9 hours at work together with 7.5 hours of sleep. Along with family commitments, daily chores and travel time, that leaves you with a couple of hours to workout.
There is little time to waste and that is where Samsung’s new and enhanced wearables like the Gear Fit2 Pro – compatible with smartphones running on Android 4.4 or iOS 9.0 and above - can be your perfect foil.
Launched in Singapore back in October together with the Gear Sport and the Gear IconX, your precious downtime will be turned into an efficient workout for that ultimate healthy lifestyle.
In this urban jungle we live in, some of the favourite ways to keep fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle is to jog or swim.
Even a long breeze walk is a good way to stay healthy and give yourself ‘me-time’ after a hectic day in the office.
And to sweeten the deal, challenge yourself during your walks by using the Gear Fit2 Pro to participate in the Health Promotion Board’s National Steps Challenge Season 3. All you need to do is sync Samsung Health with the Healthy 365 mobile app. Did we mention that you can even win attractive prizes every step of the way?
But of course if you prefer a more grueling jog or swim to maximise your workout minutes, the Gear Fit2 Pro has enhanced features that will ensure every bead of sweat is worth the hours.
The Samsung Gear Fit2
Pro (available in black or
red) is perfect both on the
road and underwater.
FOR THE JOGGER IN YOU
Use the continuous Heart Rate Monitoring to track your heart rate throughout the day and keep tabs on the calories burnt amongst other important health factors through the Samsung Health Dashboard.
Top that off with the amazing list of fitness and wellness apps available on the Gear Fit2 Pro to improve your nutritional and hydration aspects, along with sleep patterns. Pretty awesome to have that all on your wrist isn’t it?
But of course, all that preparation comes down to the 2 actual time spent on the jogging trail and Samsung has fitted the watch with the perfect in-built GPS tracker which displays real-time maps and route displays, coupled with speed and distance tracking.
And it doesn’t stop there. The Gear Fit2 Pro comes with a handy Spotify partnership that allows you to save your playlists from your Spotify Premium account to keep your favourite musicians right by your side on those runs.
Even if you have too many songs you want on multiple playlists, the 4GB internal storage space allows you to jump from an upbeat playlist to a relaxing one, to accommodate your running patterns.
To save the best for the last, all these can be done mobilefree during your workouts and the icing on the cake is the ability to use it without data connection!
FOR THE WATER SPORTS FAN IN YOU
It is understandable for most Singaporeans to opt for laps in the pool instead of a sweaty jog. After all, it is proven that swimming is just as effective as a run to keep fit.
This is where the new and enhanced Swim-proof Gear Fit2 Pro comes into play.
With the new 5ATM water resistance rating, dive into the pool or take on some watersports without worrying about any damage done to that Gear Fit2 Pro of yours.
Now that water resistance is in place, you can focus on making those laps count. With Speedo’s latest swimming training app, Speedo On, available on the Gear Fit2 Pro, you will have swift access to l ap counts, lap times and even the option to set swim times and distance targets.
So remember to take the Gear Fit2 Pro (retailing at $268) – compatible with smartphones running on Android 4.4 or iOS 9.0 and above - on your next workout and explore the fantastic functions it comes with.
For those who are keen to explore other Wearables, the Samsung Gear Sport provides a more classic watch-style option (retailing at $448) while the Gear IconX (retailing at $268) gives you a seamless audio experience without the worry of dangling cords.
