When we talk about Samsung wearables, the focus is on Galaxy Watch smartwatches but the Korean tech giant also has a lineup of fitness trackers. The last time it released a fitness tracker was Galaxy Fit 2 which debuted in 2020. It is now reported that the company is preparing to launch a successor two years later.
The latest rumors claim that the Samsung Galaxy Fit 3 is very close to an official release. There is no specific date yet but it could happen as soon as the second half of this year. However, the semiconductor supply shortage could result in launch delays that could get pushed back to early 2023. The launch is essentially expected to take place in the coming months.
There are no details about the new fitness tracker features and specifications. The information mentioned above surfaced from the post shared on Samsung Community forums. Expected pricing for the device is said to be KRW 50,000 i.e. about $39 but we will have to wait and see for the official price tag.
To recall the Galaxy Fit 2, it arrived with a 1.1-inch AMOLED rectangular display. There is a 159mAh battery with a claimed battery life of about 15-21 days depending on the usage. There are no typical sensors that we commonly see among modern fitness bands. It is safe to assume that Samsung will release the third-gen device with all those expected sensors and features.
