Samsung finally brings Gear Sport smartwatch and Gear Fit2 Pro in India


Both are set to go up for sale starting from December. Pre-orders for both the smartwatches begin from December 4 followed by general availability from December 11 on Flipkart, Amazon and Samsung India e-store. Samsung, for now, hasn't launched the 2018-edition of the Gear Icon X in India.

The Tizen-based Gear Sport has the same movable bezel as before and supports Samsung Pay for cashless payments. The Gear S3, launched by Samsung past year, still remains to be the king in the North as far as the South Korean major's trysts with fitness/smart wearable technology is concerned.

However, while the Gear S3 comes with a speaker allowing you to make and receive calls, the same is absent from the Gear Sport. The Gear Sport, as far as first impressions are concerned, looks like a fitness tracker masquerading as a smartwatch, and that's a good thing.

It is compatible with iOS devices like the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6S, 6s Plus, SE, 5 as well provided they're running iOS 9 and upwards.
