Samsung Gear Fit 2 Apps

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Apps


Samsung Gear Fit 2 Apps. What is up guys my name is Mario and on this
video we are going to review some of the apps you should have in your Samsung Gear Fit2. Weather
The Weather App is one of my favorites. This app will provide you with basic weather
information such as current temperature, the day’s highs and lows, and other additional
miscellaneous forecasts. Further down it will show the next day’s
partial forecasts by the hour and at the end it will also show the forecast for the next
six days. This app will only give you a few settings
to adjust. You can set the Units to Farenheight or Celsius. If you are concerned about your battery life
you can program it on how often you want it to auto refresh, do keep in mind that you
can manually refresh by clicking the refresh icon on the very bottom of the app. Also, you will be able to turn on and off
the current location feature which will use the GPS to keep the app up to date with your
current location. I big disclaimer: Once you install this app
you will not be able to uninstall it completely. You will be able to uninstall it from the
Samsung Gear app, but the app will just keep showing up in your watch. So make sure you really really want this app
before you make the decision. I was able to get rid of it by fully formatting
my gear fit2, which means I brought the watch back to original settings out of the box. MapMyRun
Next we have an app called MapMyRun. This app will allow you to leave your mobile
device at home and use the built-in GPS technology of you gear fit2 to track your heart rate,
pace, speed, distance, and track duration. What makes this app special is that it will
show the real time map in your gear fit2 as you progress. After your workout completes, it will sync
up all the data which can be accessed later by any of your other devices. This app will also offer other perks to keep
you motivated like showing you the routs and data from other users in your area, it will
even create a customized rout for you to take on your next workout. You can share your data across social media
with family and friends if you like. There are many more features I could not cover
here, which will be worth your time checking out! Many people reported having issues syncing
up this app to their phones, but there are also many other users reporting they are able
to use this app with no issues. I personally was able to sync up and use the
app with no issues so far. FitEvolution
Third we have FitEvolution, which will allow you to have a personal trainer in your gear
fit2. This app will provide additional workouts
compared to the default app that originally came with the gear fit2. You can plan ahead different types of pre-programmed
workouts which you could follow through a guided daily workout feature. You can also pick several freestyle workouts
and check your history. The gear fit2 sensors will try to pick up
the posture and movements which will in return you will be getting a real time sense of direction
from the app on what to do next and when to stop. It doesn’t always work 100% but seems to
do a decent job. The GUI will give you a sense of direction
with an initial posture image of the targeted muscle and workout. Workout Trainer
Fourth we have the Workout Trainer. This app will give you a more professional
sense of path as you will be getting real time video direction on your phone and a pulse
sensor direction through the gear fit2. You will be able to preselect the workouts
you want to plan and schedule ahead of time. When you are ready to go each day you just
initiate the planned workout from the mobile app. You can also keep up with your fitness history,
work in groups with family or friends, and you can get in touch with a professional trainer
through the app. I won’t go into every feature as you can
see in the display, but some of the features are free to try and other you will have to
pay. Spotify
Another app that you want to check out is Spotify. From the Gear Fit2 watch you will be able
to view and select your playlist, Songs, Albums, Artist. The feature mainly works as a control remote
for your phone which will allow you to skip the track, play, or pause. When it works it is pretty smooth and responsive,
but I experienced many instances where the app would give me an error stating that the
gear fit2 was not connected to the phone or was not able to connect.. The same issue reported by several users. If you are a Spotify user you should definitely
check it out . If you currently own a Samsung Gear Fit2 you
probably already know that almost every app that didn’t come with the stock software
will have bugs, but since we are now stuck with the gear fit2 we try to make the best
out of it. If you decide to give any of this apps a try,
make sure to ensure your gear fit2 is up to date by going to the Samsung gear app, Settings,
click on update gear software, and download updates manually if any are available. Once you ensure your gearfit2 is up to date. Head down to the Samsung Galaxy Apps and check
them out for yourself. I tried installing some of these apps before
ensuring my gear fit2 was updated and was encountering several issues, but many of those
issues were fixed after the update. Let me know if you have any questions, concerns,
or opinions in the comment section below. I would like to know which one is your favorite
app so make sure you share that with us. Don’t forget to hit that like button if

on the next one.

    Great video Mario. It is your personal experience that matters the most in a review, but it is also great that you have done some research to find out where others have experienced problems.

    Wonder if any of these Apps will be available with iOS? At the moment, only the weather app is available.

    The Gear Fit 2 and the Pro ONLY have the weather app at this time when using iOS unless you count adding the Alarm and different watch faces. However, with the latest firm wear and using iOS, it's a great sports watch. In addition to vibrating when you have a phone call, it also shows texts that you can read ON the watch. No replies though. Min is very stable in maintaining the Bluetooth connect with the phone nearby. My holds the Bluetooth when the phone is downstairs and I'm upstairs. The GPS works great, step count agrees with other devices, instant pulse, and a few other nice features. The Gear Fit2 Pro is now reduced to $149 from $199. If you can find a Gear Fit2, it's available for $119 or less.

    Thank you for all the information – I really was happy with my Samsung Gear Fit Pro 2 – that was until the sensors stopped working – I bought the device in France while on holiday and back in South Africa after two months things went wrong. I am told that the motherboard need to be replaced as they do not only replace the senors – this is like buying a second device due to the cost and the face that Samsung does not provide worldwide guarantees??? Why on Earth NOT? f this glitch had not happened and the guarantee had not defaulted I would still be a Samsung fan

    Cool review. Are there apps where you can record your workout. Like enter how many reps and what weight. Like an excel? Long time ago, I write on paper at the gym. Like example: Date #### Name of work out #### Weight ### Sets ###

    The annoying thing about the Spotify app is that every time I put my watch on the charger Spotify opens on my phone.
