Do you remember that Samsung announced a fitness device called the S Band back at the launch of its Galaxy S4 handset? There is no mystery that the band never made it to market and exactly when we have imagined that things won’t ever change, guess what? New details have been just revealed, confirming that Samsung will be offering the product after all, but with a fresh design and most probably as an accessory for Galaxy S5 and not S4 as it should have happened an year ago.
Fitness Tracker for Calories burned, Steps taken, Distance travelled and Duration of sleep
This new Samsung S Band is a fitness tracker that has no display, which means just one thing: it will only act as a sensor, with all info visible on the paired smartphone on both the Activity Tracker app and the new S Health app that is set to debut on Samsung’s Galaxy S5. But there is something that you should know from the start: you shouldn’t expect any wonders, but more something like simple functions. We are talking about notifying users of any calls or messages they might have received on their handsets, along with the usual calories burned, steps taken, or distance travelled.
Moreover, it seems that Samsung’s S Band will also have a sleep monitoring feature, but we still have no idea if it will only monitor those basic aspects such as the duration of sleep or how many times its user woke up, or go further into measuring the actual efficiency of your sleep in all its deep and light stages.
Samsung’s Preoccupation for Fitness and Health
The upcoming Samsung S Band will also come with have interchangeable straps (in white, orange, yellow, as well as grey color options), but other information such as release date and pricing remain are about to be revealed. So, all that we can add is that we like Samsung’s increasing preoccupation for fitness and health, so we cannot wait for more and more products to be revealed.
