Samsung has continued its Galaxy introductions with another watch, the Gear Fit, which will be sold alongside the Gear 2 and Neo. As its name suggests, the Fit focuses on fitness features and brings a more compact build than its larger cousins. Central to the new design is a 1.84-inch curved AMOLED display with 432x128 resolution.

Despite the thinner display, the Fit still offers the same apps that are found in the Gear 2 and Neo. Users can view notifications, access contacts and dial numbers, though Samsung's marketing focuses on the pedometer, hart-rate monitor and exercise apps.

Like the Galaxy S5 and other Gear watches, the Fit features an IP67-rated case that promises to protect against water immersion at depths up to a meter. Users can also swap the strap for different colors, while the integrated battery is claimed to last for up to four days before requiring a recharge.

The Gear Fit is expected to arrive sometime in April, though the price remains unannounced.
