Summary: The Samsung Gear is really helpfull for all my daily activities. I love the feature of the pedometer, the apps along with the gear store and the built in camera (which i found out about once i recieved it). Its very light weight and it can be used on either wrist. i would recomment this one and the advance Gear also, where more cool features are included. the only con i found was that is didnt have a heart beat meter as it does on the gear two but still worth the money.
Summary: Got this as a present and seemed like a cool little device. Unfortunately I was not able to download the Gear Fit Manager app for my Nexus 5. Kept getting a message saying "This device does not support Gear Fit". Its a shame the app is only available for newer Samsung handsets. Samsung is really limiting themselves here. At least I have a gift receipt...
Excellent for me, may not be so great for hard core fitness folks

Summary: I was intrigued by the Fit because of the sleep mode and HRM, and the ability to have some limited phone interaction. A pure smart watch was just too geeky for me, and the fitness band was more than I was looking for. What it does well for me: The HRM is adequate, but I'm sure not medical grade. I can get spot readings, and when I put it in exercise mode it displays my current HR along with the elapsed time..
