Made for all types of fitness enthusiasts, from casual runners to athletes, Galaxy Fit supports active lifestyles. With thin, lightweight bodies, Galaxy Fit is easy to style and comfortable to wear all week long[2].

The slim and fashionable Galaxy Fit allows for easy and intuitive tracking to help you reach your fitness goals. It automatically starts tracking your activity when you walk, run, bike, row, hop on the elliptical trainer[3]or start a dynamic workout. You can also manually select from more than 90 different activities in the Samsung Health app on your smartphone, and Galaxy Fit will automatically start to track your chosen workout. Plus, with enhanced sleep analysis and smart stress management, you can monitor your wellbeing at any time of the day.

Galaxy Fit is easy to interact with on the go, thanks to a simple and intuitive UX and a user-friendly smart experience. Receive alerts and messages or check the widget which includes information synced straight from your smartphone —like alarm, calendar or weather—without ever needing to touch your phone. When you travel to a new time zone, your Galaxy Fit will also automatically display a dual-clock watch face to make it easier to manage your schedule. Both devices are water resistant of 5ATM[4], so they can easily go with you from the shower to the pool to the rest of your day.

Galaxy Buds: The In-Ear Lifestyle Companion

Galaxy Buds are the ultimate cord-free earbuds for those who want a seamlessly connected experience on the go. With their truly comfortable form factor, easy controls, clear and smart sound, and compact size—they are an everyday in-ear lifestyle companion.

Galaxy Buds offer a supreme listening experience, with sound by AKG. Enhanced Ambient Sound allows you to hear your surroundings clearly even while the buds are in your ears, so you can remain aware of your environment at the same time as you listen to your favorite tunes. Premium sound extends to the sound of your voice, as well. The Adaptive Dual Microphone uses one inner microphone and one outer microphone in each earbud, so you can deliver your voice clearly in both loud and quiet environments.

Galaxy Buds keep up with you all day, with up to six hours of Bluetooth streaming, and up to five hours of calls. Plus, their compact case holds a charge for up to seven hours,[5]and gives the Galaxy Buds 1.7 hours on a 15-minute quick charge.  With wireless charging and device-to-device power sharing, you can also get a quick charging boost on the go from Galaxy S10 which is the latest Samsung smartphone.

Galaxy Buds integrate with Bixby on the latest Galaxy mobile devices, so you can activate your intelligent assistant quickly without ever picking up your phone. Simply use your voice to make calls, send text messages or check the battery life of your earbuds.
