In front is a 0.95-inch AMOLED touch display with a resolution of 240 x 120 pixels that produces bright, vibrant and sharp images and text given that it is housed in a small  18.3 x 45.1 x 11.2 mm body. On the left side is the single button that serves as the home and power button.

At both ends of the smart band, the body has a proprietary mechanism that attaches and locks each band to the main body securely. The said strap is flexible but noticeably sturdy. It can be removed should you wish to replace the bands.

The metal buckle is integrated into the rubber strap and has a single protruding point that locks the strap securely. You will have to intentionally press on the protrusion in order to remove the strap.

It weighs at just 23 grams with the strap and is rated for MIL-STD-810G military standards.

The Galaxy Fit connects and collaborates with via the Galaxy Wearable app and the Samsung Health app. 

In the Galaxy Wearable app is where you connect the Galaxy Fit for the initial set-up. It is also the place where you can control the various settings related to the hardware and software notifications while the Samsung Health app is where you find the details of your heart rate and activities like rest, sleep, work, and exercise. 

We were impressed at how quickly and accurately it detects our transition from each activity may it be from rest, exercise or sleep!

After the initial set-up in the Samsung Wearable app, you can customize the settings of the following: watch face, alarms, weather, quick responses, notifications, display, and the vibrations.

Within our first 48 hours with the Galaxy Fit, it was able to accurately detect when we are resting, walking, and sleeping. We were impressed at how quickly and accurately it detects our transition from each activity may it be from rest, exercise or sleep. We are confident that reliability and accuracy are on par with Fitbit devices.

Quick thoughts

If you are looking for a capable but affordable fitness band that accurately detects and records your activities while integrating well with the Samsung ecosystem, the Samsung Galaxy Fit is highly recommended.

But, if you do not need the AMOLED display, you can check the more affordable Galaxy Fit e at PHP 1,999.

Either band is a good choice but the Galaxy Fit faces tough competition from Mi Band 4.
