Samsung seems to be launching toned down variants of everything. They already have the Galaxy S10e as a semi-flagship of Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Watch Active for the Galaxy Watch. And now, for their fitness band, the Galaxy Fit, there’s also a Galaxy Fit e. Of course, this was already teased when the Galaxy Active launched, but now it’s official.
Samsung Galaxy Fit e Overview
The Galaxy Fit e went official quietly. It’s basically, a smart fitness band which is a stripped down version of the Galaxy Fit. It’s got many of the same features as that one, but not all of them. There are a built-in heart rate monitor, 5 ATM Water-resistance and about 6-7 days of battery life. The battery can extend up to 13 days on frisky usage, though.
Aesthetically, the Samsung Galaxy Fit e comes in a black body with Black, Yellow and White strap choices. There is a small 0.74″ monochrome OLED display that shows notifications and calendar alerts from your phone.
The Galaxy Fit e doesn’t really compromise on features either. It automatically tracks your activities – walking, running and dynamic workout, and can sync the data on your phone with Samsung Health. Also, you get sleep tracking. However, there is no water-related activity tracking despite its Water Resistance.
Availability and Pricing
The Samsung Galaxy Fit e is available for pre-orders throughout Europe. And this costs less than half what the Galaxy Fit costs. Right now, pre-orders start at €40.
