Workout detection and post-workout feedback are getting better on Samsung’s fitness wearable.
Samsung has just pushed out an update to the Gear Fit 2 right around a year after launch that makes a few solid upgrades to its tracking — because, after all, that is what it’s designed to do. Building on the Gear Fit 2‘s automatic fitness tracking that auto-starts workouts when it detects certain sustained movement, Samsung says it has improved its ability to detect workouts.
For runners, you can now set custom pace targets for runs or set certain time or distance goals in Samsung Health to let the app build an appropriate workout for you. After your run is done, the Fit 2 will now give you a detailed color-coded graph of how long you spent in each heart rate zone over the duration. You’ll also get more accurate information on a map of where you ran, right on the Fit 2’s display.
Samsung has also improved its sleep tracking to give more details on how well you slept through the night, and changed activity reminders to give you some options for light activity instead of simply telling you to stand up. Finally, the Gear Fit 2 now has an “SOS” function that can be activated with a triple press of the home button to send your location and a message to specified contacts.
The update is available now through the Gear Manager app on the phone you have paired to the Gear Fit 2. Just visit the “About Gear” section to download the update, which comes in at a 47MB.
