Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Accurate

Accurate:
"The pedometer is been fairly accurate, not perfect, but better than expected."
_
"On morning runs I don't get anywhere near what I should be burning and what's weird is that when I run in the evening its more accurate, but usually overshoots the mark see pics, and yes I have my stats put in height weight gender age I'm 6'1 255 and know for a fact that I burn more than 360cal after running for 45min@6mph."
_
"and even if it did this it would only be 50% accurate......I hate to say I will probably keep due to being a gift, this has been out for almost a year now and it seems like there has been little to no updates from Samsung not to sure of its future and with CES just ending over new products will be out soon.....unless some major improvement to firmware and software are made look elsewhere."
_
"-the heart rate monitor (which the Force does not have) is also a nice feature and appears to be mostly accurate."
_
"Like any pedometer it is not 100% accurate but it has the same accuracy as many other pedometers I have tried."
_
"- The pedometer and other exercise trackers appear to be pretty accurate for me."
_
"The step counter is pretty accurate aswell so I'm very glad for this!"
_
"lol My wife bought me this watch shortly after my heart surgery so I could track how far I walk per day, my heart rate (which is pretty accurate), exercising habits and know what time it is!"
_
"Very accurate, love the sleep analysis function."
_
"I really liked this watch but, it is not very accurate with steps taken or hr."

Apps

Apps:
"after awhile did not work well with apps"
_
"I played with apps to put different clocks on but had the same problem."
_
"I don't believe that it is compatible with any apps that track your fitness or diet goals like CardioTrainer or Loseit."
_
"S Health is like a bad joke compared to My Fitness Pal, but at the time I purchased the Gear Fit, it was incompatible with MFP and all other fitness apps that I am aware of."
_
"I am not able to get the apps to sync with this device."
_
"They did miss the mark by not having any alarm options & not being able to sync into my Runkeeper or My Fitness Pal apps.~ I'm still hoping they will add those options in future upgrades."
_
"* Apps: The SHealth app ties in well with the Nike+ app, but all of the other suggested apps aren't useful to me, and defeat the purpose of my using SHealth."
_
"Apps are great."
_
"Love this watch connects to my phone can download apps for it love that it tracks heart rate and everything also have bought off brand replacement wrist bands and they work perfect! "
_
"Works well as a companion to Galaxy Note 4 and ok for my fitness needs,wish its synced with more fitness apps but at least it works well with endomondo,notifications are a nice feature, can respond to simple texts with add ons, overall good for the price but again only if you have a Samsung phone"

Battery

Battery:
"Not as good as the fitbit but I liked it, just woke up today and it was dead full battery before I went to bed and nothing only had it since late April and cant contact seller."
_
"Only drawback is the battery life."
_
"However the only negative is the battery life."
_
"Only negative when the light is on often, the battery goes faster."
_
"Now it just keeps connecting and disconnection over and over until the battery is dead."
_
"The reason are pretty simple, not accurate, poor quality battery."
_
"My only complaint is it would be nice if the app had access to friend invites so you could all share your progress (a more competitive edge) The watch is great though and has a better battery life than I expected."
_
"Otherwise it WAS nice, functionality and screen was nice and the battery lasted pretty long."
_
"BATTERY LIFE IS GOOD BECAUSE I USE THE WHOLE DAY RECEIVING A LOT OF MESSAGES ANS CALLS, 2 DAYS OF USE WITHOUT CHARGING IT."
_
"It takes about 45 minutes to go from 10%-ish to 100%, and then it's good to go for another 48 hours (for me, at least), so I'm impressed with the battery life overall."
_
"Does have good battery life, but difficult to charge due to design (can't plug it in in the dark when it tells you it needs juice)."
_

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"The other downside is I'm not sure it records anything when it is out of bluetooth range of the phone."
_
"Inconsistent Bluetooth connectivity."
_
"I was worried that my phone battery would drain because it's constantly Bluetooth connected."
_
"Even out of bluetooth range, the watch has an easy to read clock (I changed the orientation to vertical for ease of reading), and is a good pedometer and heart rate monitor."
_
"It paired very easily with my galaxy s5, and the Bluetooth range is usually about 100 ft (max)."
_
"Tracks steps accurately, relays messages through Bluetooth, love that it's a watch too! "
_
"It would be nice if the notifications worked when I was out of Bluetooth range, but I get that this is an entry-level device."
_
"I also like the built in pedometer and sleep tracking, so far everything has worked fantastically, I only lose the Bluetooth connection when I roam too far away which has not been often."

Button

Button:
"Another negative is the touch is not responsive at all and because of the tiny icons, one will often press the wrong button and not get the results they want."
_
"Becomes frustrating to raise your arm or push the on off button to turn it back on."
_
"The reason it got 2 stars: the button on the side just broke!"
_
"The button on the device would become unresponsive and will start working after a day or so."
_
"used it once, the only button on the watch broke, didnt even wear it more than an hour"
_
"The Gear Fit Manager routinely fails to synch from one button and successfully synchs from another."
_
"The exercise button, I'm not really sure how well it works because I forget to use it when I bring my dogs for a walk but I remember to use it with the elliptical."
_
"It doesnt work so good when the button sticks."
_
"The design looks good with regards to space around the button for dust particles etc, it just must be a bad spring or something else internal to the unit."
_
"If you have a bike or an elliptical trainer: please look somewhere else with real buttons and an LCD display you will actually see."
_
"The device is great, but after less than a month, the ON OFF button is broken."

Charging

Charging:
"- sleep tracking is better- fast charge time (whenever i sit down to work i generally charge it.... keeping around 80 - 90% is ideal anyhow) CONSonly downside is the charging, as with every smart watch (lasts approximately 3 days)"
_
"Charging it every 3 days is annoying."
_
"Idiotic proprietary charger alone makes this product a hassle."
_
"The most annoying feature is having to charge it every 2 days and the weird fit of the charger, but if you can get past charger issues, it's very handy."
_
"Does have good battery life, but difficult to charge due to design (can't plug it in in the dark when it tells you it needs juice)."
_
"But, since I've gotten the charger I love it! "
_
"-The charging cradle is pretty easy to lose."
_
"I have only had to charge it about once every 3 or 4 days and I use it pretty much all day."
_
"I wear it constantly except in the shower (which is a good time to charge it)."
_

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The Samsung Gear Fit is uncomfortable on my wrist, even when I tried a third-party band (which some state in online forums may be more comfortable for people).I think the major problem for us larger folks is the material that most of these bands are made of (silicone, most likely) do not let the skin breathe and if we already sweat easily, this is why the discomfort, but that is pure speculation."
_
"My eyesight is not the best (blind in one eye, aging eyes and rotary nystagmus which makes focusing slower) but I find it very comfortable on my eyesSo far, I'm very happy with my purchase."
_
"The screen is easy to read and although I would feel more comfortable having it be smaller on my wrist, I wouldn't want to sacrifice the screen real estate."
_
"This is an awesome accesory, very light, you will feel like nothing is in your hand, very comfortable for fitness, and very usefull as well."
_
"Comfort is great."
_
"It is comfortable to wear, lightweight and easy to use."

Connection

Connection:
"I still haven't been able to get it connected to my phone."

"Search for the problems for this connection and you will find plenty of questions without answers about the sync between this devices."
_
"Now it just keeps connecting and disconnection over and over until the battery is dead."
_
"Inconsistent Bluetooth connectivity."
_
"5 frustrating hours later, still not able to connect device."
_

_
"Some difficulty in connections but overall I am satisfied"
_
"The more you use it (connecting with your fitness app on your phone) the more you love it!"
_
"It took a couple of tries to get it to sync with my Samsung phone and the bluetooth connection fades in and out throughout the day but overall I am very happy with it! "
_
"I was able to connect it to my ALCATEL phone, but it does not connect anymore, so I will have to ask somebody with a compatible device to let me initialize the watch."
_
"The smart watch does not work the first time until you connect the thing to a compatible device."
_

Control

Control:
"Also, there is no way to select which media you want it to control, so that might be a potential problem."
_
"It has worked as expected since then, including monitoring my sleep, notifying me of missed messages and calls, allowing me to control the music I am playing on my phone when I exercise, and counting steps, heart rate, etc."
_
"I don't miss the camera or IR control from the Gear (camera was not that great) and I have been wearing this non stop since I got it."
_
"It was for the most part what I expected ... works great... controls mp3, I can see text and calls when running, and it records my pulse wish it was more accurate but I can live with it I'm not hard core athlete plus I received in 4 days..."
_
"The heart rate monitor and pedometer is so very accurate and likes the fact he can control his incoming texts and calls without ever taking his phone out of his pocket."
_
"I asked how a service provider would be able to control a function on a device that wasn't a cell phone or an internet device."
_
"I managed to find a modified Fit Gear Manager App (the app that pretty much controls the whole deal) and it's got VERY limited usage with my Sony Xperia Z Ultra."
_
"Shoes texts let's you set quick responses, timer, stopwatch, click, pedometer, heart rate, sleep tracker, phone locater, Google navigation compatible, commotion phone volume, control phone calls, receive calendar notification, so much more great device for the $"

Display

Display:
"At this point I bought a GARMIN VIVOSMART and I miss the brilliantly lit SAMSUNG display- but it does no good if it doesn't work."
_
"You can set the display to vertical, but then you get weird breaks in text."
_
"The bigger problem is that the display is unreadable in daylight."
_
"Different sections relating to the same information display contrasting data due to sync errors and some sections don't even sync at all in some cases."
_
"-The display is clear and beautiful and allows for a customized wallpaper."
_
"This makes the viewing much easier; or 2) Change the display orientation to vertical."
_
"The display is great but requires an arm contortion to read comfortably."
_
"Its curved AMOLED display looks fantastic, too."
_
"Bright and clear display with many customization options."

Exercise

Exercise:
"Unfortunately, you're limited to S Health which is limited to only certain exercises with no manual input allowed so it leaves you having to use a separate app to track things."
_
"Then I was also disappointed when the band was set in exercise mode."
_
"The only complaint I have is I wish it had more exercise options, it would be great if it had a weight lifting option."
_
"The sleep cycle monitor is not good, there is no food journal and entering exercise is very limited."
_
"My problem is with the exercise tracking."
_
"- The pedometer and other exercise trackers appear to be pretty accurate for me."
_
"Does exactly what I wanted and has some great extras, but doesn't have the option to add any other exercises."
_
"PROS:-Nice, bright display-Heart rate integration for exercise activities-Useful media controllerCONS:-Poor battery life-Data-logging issues with S Health-Sleep tracking not very insightful-Heart rate sensor is temperamentalThe Samsung Gear Fit is a great-looking piece of kit let down by so many things that fitness lovers should stay away for now."
_
"Love the Walk Run Bike Exercise modes all of which measure distance."
_
"Music control is awesome and you can really rig these babies to do more then you think ( husband just got his and is going nuts)The exercise options are so great and they are VERY accurate."

Experience

Experience:
"After 45 minutes of an annoying experience, the rep told me that they would forward the issue to their development team."
_
"I had seen several reviews which stated the pedometer was not at all accurate, but that has not been my experience."
_
"Summary: so despite the horrible software experience I've had so far, I still give this product 3 Stars (maybe 3.5 if that was possible) because I find the on-wrist notifications and step tracking to still be a fair amount of critical functionality for the price."
_
"Based on my experience, I strongly recommend buying a back-up cradle when you purchase the watch."
_
"Heck, after my experience with the S5 as well as the Fit, I believe the S5 might be my last Samsung device."
_
"It was a fun experience while it lasted but I think I'm done buying Samsung after this, more for how unhelpful their customer service has been than anything else."
_
"I want to start out by stating that I have been very loyal to Samsung and am on my second Note phone in two years and have generally had very good experiences with their products and customer support."
_
"you will have a nice experience with this device."

Fit

Fit:
"I was worried about the band being too big because I have small wrists but it fits great with 2 holes to spare."
_
"*Size: I was worried that the Gear Fit would look huge on my tiny wrists, but it doesn't ."
_
"So now I'm stuck with an expense piece of junk... Several of my friends also purchased the same product, had the same technical problems, & now have a non-operational Gear Fit Smart Watch..."
_
"The Gear Fit fails on so many levels."
_
"I'm frustrated because I had gotten accustomed to the Gear Fit and now I've got to start over to find something comparable."
_
"Unfortunately the new Gear Fit went into the endless reboot cycle just three days after I received it."
_
"Gave this item to my daughter for her birthday, my son and future daughter-in-law have one, they all love their Fit Bits, she loves it and wears it everyday, it arrived as expected, also we got the interchangeable bands with this so she could be fashion forward, I have no complaints and am thinking of getting one for myself!"
_
"I love, love, love my Samsung Gear Fit!"
_
"It fits nice on the wrist too!"
_
"But great fit."
_
"I was worried about the band being too big because I have small wrists but it fits great with 2 holes to spare."

Fitness

Fitness:
"Long story short, for a proper fitness tracker that WILL sync to just about any app out there, save yourself some frustration and some money and go with a Fitbit."
_
"All in all, after doing a ton of research on fitness bands, I couldn't be more pleased with settling with this one."
_
"First of all the Gear Fit is not compatible with any other fitness software only S Health you would think that this would be open source so other software developers could at least try to put out something better."
_
"I had a love hate relationship with this fitness tracker smartwatch."
_
"I don't believe that it is compatible with any apps that track your fitness or diet goals like CardioTrainer or Loseit."
_
"So it is an inadequate fitness tracker and a mediocre 'smart' watch."
_
"(which actually happens allot, if your lazy like me)- fitness coach is great when I run."
_
"I feel like this would be a great alternative to other fitness trackers and hands down would win out vs the Apple Watch."
_
"Mainly she uses it for fitness, but loves that it tells her when she gets calls or texts, and can text an auto response back."
_
"It functions very well as an overall fitness tracker especially in conjunction with Samsung's S Health app."
_
"Works well as a companion to Galaxy Note 4 and ok for my fitness needs,wish its synced with more fitness apps but at least it works well with endomondo,notifications are a nice feature, can respond to simple texts with add ons, overall good for the price but again only if you have a Samsung phone"

Monitoring

Monitoring:
"Heartrate monitor is the worst"
_
"Also, I have never been able to get the heart rate monitor to register while working out."
_
"The heart rate monitor is not as accurate as my polar heart rate monitor."
_
"I dislike that the heart rate monitor is totally inaccurate."
_
"I play with the heart rate monitor - I know it's in no way accurate, but it's fun to see what makes my heart rate go up!"
_
"I'm using basically for the gym and is a very good tool for monitoring whatever you do."
_
"Even out of bluetooth range, the watch has an easy to read clock (I changed the orientation to vertical for ease of reading), and is a good pedometer and heart rate monitor."
_
"Gives some useful monitoring as well as letting you know what alerts you have without pulling out your phone."
_
"There are like 10 apps total (not including the 1,000 different stupid watch faces) and the most useful one simply makes the screen a solid neon color so people can see at nite that you paid $120 for a reflector...Pros:The screen is really nice and easy to navigateIt is nicer to change songs with while running with this rather than reaching over to an arm band and tripping over your own feetThe heart rate monitor works pretty well besides the fact that you manually have to check it and it incorporates it into nothing."
_
"If you're looking for a well priced smart watch and exerciser monitor this is for you."

Quality

Quality:
"The reason are pretty simple, not accurate, poor quality battery."
_
"GOOD QUALITY."
_
"the second one held the battery charge for only a few hours and seemed less reliable and lower quality than the first one..."
_
"good quality, love the features and that you can add apps to it."
_
"The sleep timer is nice but the accuracy of the % of stillness is a suspect indicator for quality of sleep considering the sensitivity issues which I perceive with pedometer."

"Really nice watch, excellent quality, totally satisfied"

Running

Running:
"already dead ... keeps rebooting and won't run at all."
_
"On morning runs I don't get anywhere near what I should be burning and what's weird is that when I run in the evening its more accurate, but usually overshoots the mark see pics, and yes I have my stats put in height weight gender age I'm 6'1 255 and know for a fact that I burn more than 360cal after running for 45min@6mph."
_
"About a mile into my run I looked at my wrist and saw something missing!"
_
"Once I let the battery run dead on it and got it away from my Galaxy 4S, my phone started working normally again."
_
"If the software doesn't run, it is NOT compatible."
_
"Side-loading applications taken from Galaxy S4 and S5 models isn't a viable option either, as those applications won't run properly (or indeed at all) on the GSIII."
_
"(which actually happens allot, if your lazy like me)- fitness coach is great when I run."
_
"It's really good to wear while running or just walking around."
_
"Really good for driving or running or audiobooks, since I don't want to pull out my phone but I can still change the volume or track."
_
"It makes getting notifications so much easier, has encouraged me to pick up running and it is always a great conversation starter."
_
"There are like 10 apps total (not including the 1,000 different stupid watch faces) and the most useful one simply makes the screen a solid neon color so people can see at nite that you paid $120 for a reflector...Pros:The screen is really nice and easy to navigateIt is nicer to change songs with while running with this rather than reaching over to an arm band and tripping over your own feetThe heart rate monitor works pretty well besides the fact that you manually have to check it and it incorporates it into nothing."

Sleeping

Sleeping:
"It does so much more than just track my fitness, I like how you can locate your cell phone from the device if you have misplaced it, it tracks your sleep patterns, you can send generic texts from it, you can program new short messages into it, you can monitor your heart rate, or track your exercise straight from the watch itself."
_
"Or a fault with the system, some mornings I turn it off sleep mode and it automatically turns the pedometer on, other days it doesn't, those times you don't realise until halfway through the day and you think you'll check how many steps you've taken without going for a walk.....and its on pause!"
_
"Plus, the Gear Fit is a bit bulky for my wrist and its slightly uncomfortable to sleep in."
_
"It has worked as expected since then, including monitoring my sleep, notifying me of missed messages and calls, allowing me to control the music I am playing on my phone when I exercise, and counting steps, heart rate, etc."
_
"The problem I had was tracking my sleeping."
_
"They took out automatic sleep detection which is a little annoying."
_
"Inaccurate step counts, heart rate monitor doesn't read correctly most of the time, sleep tracker is meh at best."
_
"Sleep function a bit of a ruse as well."
_
"This makes it easy to wear at night in order to track my sleep."
_
"Very accurate, love the sleep analysis function."
_
"I love it, the only thing I don't like is the sleep app, when I had my fit-bit, it just started on it's own, but this one you have to start and stop it."

Software

Software:
"and I really like the hardware, which is why I bought the Gear Fit in the first place, but I could not recommend that anyone buy the Gear Fit unless or until the fix their software problems."
_
"No special type if side-loading will get past that the software just isn't compatible with some phones."
_
"First of all the Gear Fit is not compatible with any other fitness software only S Health you would think that this would be open source so other software developers could at least try to put out something better."
_
"I have to admit I'm into programming so maybe I'm a little bias on this, but this software is total junk."
_
"The software is horrible and you can't even check it on a website so you use your compatible Samsung phone or tablet to look at the limited information."
_
"Turns out the devices needed a software update that wasn't easy to install."
_
"I ordered the Gear Fit despite the fact that I had read some pretty bad reviews about the software."
_
"Requires Samsung device and Samsung software is barely adequate."
_
"The software on the actual watch is nice, as is the screen."
_
"Highly Recommend if you have Android software to pare it with!"

Support

Support:
"Samsung support is horrible."
_
"I called Samsung tech support and tried to explain the problem."
_
"Samsung technical support is horrible and does not have enough customer support representatives to handle the call volume they receive."
_
"I just spent several hours over 2 days attempting to get some help on their ridiculous support site."
_
"Again, product support has been nonexistent, and I've been unable to get an RMA number from Samsung despite the product still being well within the warranty window."
_
"I called Samsung customer support and after rebooting the Gear Fit as well as the phones several times, the devices never did sync."
_
"I want to start out by stating that I have been very loyal to Samsung and am on my second Note phone in two years and have generally had very good experiences with their products and customer support."
_
"I tried Mapmyride that supports pretty much ANY device, except this."

_
"This works well with my note 4 I bought it for the pedometer to sync with s health I'm not sure how accurate it is though."
_
"Since it only syncs with S Health and now that is broken it is now an overpriced watch that needs to be charged every couple of days."
_
"It was very easy to sync with my Note 4 and so far I have had zero problems."

_
"I realized after wearing it a couple weeks, the tracking is not very accurate."
_
"Love the product the only issue I have is that I am always scared of it falling off and sometimes it doesn't track my steps like when I am pushing a stroller and doesn't track my spin work outs."
_
"Only problem is that it totally works on pedometer to keep track of calories burned."
_
"I had a love hate relationship with this fitness tracker smartwatch."

"I don't believe that it is compatible with any apps that track your fitness or diet goals like CardioTrainer or Loseit."

"Inaccurate step counts, heart rate monitor doesn't read correctly most of the time, sleep tracker is meh at best."
_
"- The pedometer and other exercise trackers appear to be pretty accurate for me."
_
"In order to track your movement your phone has to be with you as well as Gear Fit which makes tracking feature useless, the phone already tracks me."

Vibration

Vibration:
"And it should be noted the vibration on the Gear Fit is very weak, while the vibration on the Fitbit One will definitely get your attention!"
_
"Tracks your steps, does not appear to be consistent in doing thisTracks your Heart Rate, it takes so long to do this..you are getting outside of your zone when you stand around waiting for it to workSyncs with S health - Sadly I work out, so not walking, running, cycling or hiking..so none really fit my needsBattery sucks if you are syncing with your phoneSyncs with messages, alerts, skype, FB and more - I had to turn most off as the vibration was so annoying and battery life seriously suffers."
