Review – Samsung Galaxy Fit

Samsung has a focus on wearables this year around as they renewed the entire product range – including the fitness band. The Galaxy Fit was announced alongside the Galaxy Fit-e, and today we’re only focusing on the Galaxy Fit. Priced at a premium for such fitness bands, how does it compete with others?

Here, we have the Galaxy Fit with us. Being a user of multiple fitness bands in the past, here’s how we feel about the new Samsung Galaxy Fit.

Unboxing

For wearables, Samsung has switched to this brand new packaging design language, similar to the Galaxy Watch Active (review) and the Galaxy Buds (review). I’m liking this sleeker packaging design.

Opening up the box reveals the Galaxy Fit itself alongside a box of documentation on the lid side of things. Neat packaging design!

At the center of the band itself is the charger itself. Compact packaging design, honestly. And digging out everything reveals that you only get the Galaxy Fit and the charger itself – these are the only things that are important anyway.

The Galaxy Fit itself

It takes on a fairly simple design this time around compared to its… previous iteration of the Fit, I suppose. I honestly love the Gear Fit2 Pro (review) a lot when it comes to how the watch looks. It is now with a more conventional rectangular sharp with a slightly curved screen (from side to side) and that’s it.

Quite generic-looking…

The new Galaxy Fit comes with a 0.95-inch screen with an AMOLED screen that has 120×240 pixels in resolution. Groundbreaking? Not exactly – it’s the same as what the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 has.

The screen itself isn’t particularly bright either – but you can still read the screen under direct sunlight albeit a little difficult. We are using it on 50% brightness, after all.

Then comes the sensors on the Galaxy Fit. It has an accelerometer, a gyro sensor, and a heartrate sensor. Pretty similar to the Mi Band 4, too.

As for the bands of the Galaxy Fit itself, you can swap it off easily for another design or color altogether. Just pull the latch away from the watch body and the whole strap can slide downwards.

This is the first thing I checked because the default band is quite abysmal since it is of very high friction. How you wear the band is by slipping the band through the first hoop, then through the other hoop and underneath the band. Because of its high friction, taking the band off your hands is abysmal.

Through the first hoop, down the second hoop and under the strap. Really difficult to take the band off, honestly.

Unless you can somehow manage to slip your fingernail in and pull it out from the second hoop, then it’s probably stuck. What I did is to wiggle it out instead. The only other solution I can think of is to add more sweat and grime to have the band slide off when you want to take it off – and that means you can’t wash the band, too.

Luckily, you can find replacement bands for the Galaxy Fit pretty easily.

The features

Honestly speaking, the Galaxy Fit does come with more features this time around. Most widgets that were found on the Galaxy Watch Active are present on the Galaxy Fit as well – including the stress measurement. However, you can’t install any third-party widgets here.

Weather? Okay!

The biggest shortcoming of the Galaxy Fit is going to be the lack of customization of watch faces. There is only an array of presets that you can select from and that’s it. The colors and layout of the watch face are locked down.

This is just disappointing compared to the Mi Band 4 which does technically support custom watch faces, albeit a little tedious. This is the only set of presets you can select from.

There are a few exercise-specific trackings on the Galaxy Fit too. Since it is tightly integrated with Samsung Health, you can get a lot of integration with a nice dashboard that displays the summary of all the health reports. Neat.

By the way, the Galaxy Fit also has a stress measurement feature – just like the Galaxy Watch Active.

Other notifications-related settings on the Galaxy Fit. Quite decent.

I honestly do think the software could’ve been better here – especially the lack of customization of the watch faces. I think it is better than the Mi Band 4 since you have a few variations of colors and what to be displayed, but it’s only a bunch of presets. Please open it up so we users can customize the colors and what to be displayed on the main screen.

Battery life

The Galaxy Fit can last for around a week with 50% brightness and with some notifications going on. It’s somewhat similar to many other recent fitness bands with AMOLED screens.

Finally! A proper charger that I don’t have to take out the band itself from the strap!

As for the charger, I really like for Samsung made the charger snap to the back of the watch without needing to remove the watch itself from the band. Much better than the Mi Band 4 in this regard, actually.

Wrapping up the Samsung Galaxy Fit review

Looking at the Galaxy Fit itself, it’s a decent fitness band. However, because other very similar bands like the Mi Band 4 exists, the Galaxy Fit is placed at a difficult spot now – especially with its price of RM369.

I honestly do prefer that Samsung creates something similar like the Gear Fit2 Pro and make it this price instead. Then, the crowd will go wild.
