- Samsung unveils a new fitness bracelet after four years
- The Galaxy Fit 3 will bring a larger display and lots of sports and health features
- Unfortunately, we have to give up our appetite for GPS and NFC
Samsung plans to introduce a new fitness bracelet after four years. We already thought that the Korean giant had completely resented the industry, but detailed leaks from the last few days suggest that the premiere of its successor is imminent. What will the Galaxy Fit 3 bring?
Galaxy Fit 3: on the border between a watch and a bracelet
With the leaks of the Galaxy Fit 3 bracelet, the bag has literally been torn apart in recent days. Some of them are the responsibility of a well-known informant https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/1752682104280797293, Samsung itself is partly to blame – it was mistakenly shown on the official website by a representation in the United Arab Emirates. The site doesn’t exist anymore, but you know what will get on the internet one day…
The Galaxy Fit 3 will be quite different from its predecessor. While the “two” looked like a thin bracelet à la Xiaomi Band, the upcoming generation will look more like a narrower watch. The display will grow in height and width, the diagonal will increase from the original 1.1 to 1.6″. The display will be of the AMOLED type and will boast a resolution of 256 × 402 pixels. It will be held by a metal case with a button on the right side, and below we will find a plastic socket with health sensors.
The upcoming bracelet will have a different environment from the Galaxy Watch – instead of the open Wear OS, we will see our own closed platform built on a tile interface. More than 100 watch faces are to be prepared, there will also be an opportunity to create a watch face with your own photo on the background. There are also hundreds of sports modes and health functions – monitoring sleep, stress, heart rate or fall detection. Water will not harm it either, as it will meet IP68 protection.
The Galaxy Fit 3 should also deal with notifications and media control. Due to the absence of a microphone and speaker, it will not be possible to make phone calls through the bracelet, but it will be possible to reject or accept a call from the display (for example, into headphones). It will also be possible to respond to incoming messages with the help of pre-prepared responses. On the contrary, we have to wish for mobile payments or location tracking, NFC or GPS will not be present.
According to leaked marketing materials, the Galaxy Fit 3 should last up to 13 days on a single charge, and thanks to the fast charging function, it will be able to charge from zero to 65 percent in 30 minutes. The bracelet should be available in at least three color variants – black, white and pink.
We don’t know when the Galaxy Fit 3 will be launched at this time. Given the quality of the leaks, we will probably see it before the upcoming Galaxy A35 and A55 mid-range smartphones.
How much do we trust this leak?
