Helps track fitness including steps, exercise, calories burned, heart rate as well as sleep quality. Identifies exercises and tracks accordingly.

For most, the main draw for this wearable is that Spotify’s sought-after offline mode works here, meaning it can act as a standalone music player that pumps tunes to your wireless headphones. Indeed, this is an awesome perk.

These record the distance travelled, average heart rate and the estimated calories burned – which aren’t terribly accurate or helpful.

With built-in GPS, the ability to stream Spotify, and a new water-resistant design, the Gear Fit2 Pro expands on what made its predecessor so great.

Our favourite part of the Gear Fit2 Pro is that it doesn't feel like it's clinging to your wrist.

The Fit 2 Pro can measure heart rate every second but defaults to once every 10 minutes, while fitness tracking adds Auto Pause during workouts.

Music fans may also appreciate support for Spotify's offline mode to send tunes to wireless headphones, but unlike the fitness apps this isn't preinstalled.

A bright, shiny and colourful curved OLED screen is worth showing off.

What experts didn't like
Heart rate tracking can be inconsistent.
- BestReviews
Unfortunately, not all that has changed is for the best. In fact, many of the tweaks simply highlight longstanding issues.

But there are issues with its battery life – and its ridonculous asking price makes it an expensive luxury.

. It’s worth pointing out that while we don’t have overly large wrists, putting the Gear Fit2 Pro on someone with a smaller wrist does make it a bit cumbersome.

However, it's variable when standing up to sunlight. For instance, taking it for a run in the afternoon was absolutely fine, with all the information perfectly digestible, but when I was out early in the morning it was a lot more difficult to see what the screen was showing me.

The totally waterproof Gear Fit 2 Pro eliminates those issues, but it will cost you a little more than the Gear Fit 2, which retails for $180 but will presumably drop in price.

Battery life may be an issue for serious users, who will probably need to charge the device daily.

This isn’t just about that big, bright screen. The band is also slightly too large to avoid seeming like a “gadget”. And to some, that’s a turn-off.
