Samsung Announces New Galaxy Wearables

Samsung’s latest attempt to try and eat into Apple’s dominance in the wearables space comes in the form of the following:

  • The Galaxy Active:  The watch monitors blood pressure, in addition to heart rate. Clearly a shot at the EKG functionality in the Apple Watch 4. It has 4GB of storage and also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile payments via NFC. It can be charged by the new S10 smartphone. It can track over 30 activities. The watch will cost $199.99 US and will be released on March 8th.
  • The Galaxy Fit: Lower down on the food chain and clearly aimed at the Fitbit crowd is the Galaxy Fit. It has a rubber strap with a 0.95-inch full color, touch-sensitive AMOLED display. It pairs over Bluetooth, includes a heart rate monitor, charges wirelessly, and is water resistant. Expect to pay $99 USD on May 31 when it ships.
