Samsung plans to unveil a new fitness smartband, the Gear Fit2 Pro, at the company’s Unpacked event on August 23rd, according to VentureBeat. The latest fitness tracker has added water resistance up to 165 feet, and it can sync to the Speedo On app, which lets you swim with it and track lap times. Samsung’s current smartband, the Gear Fit2, isn’t submersible underwater, so that’s a definite winning point. There’s also a music playback option that allows Spotify tracks to be played offline, as well as GPS functionality.
