When talking about the South Korean giant, it lays a clear line between the Samsung smartwatch and fitness trackers especially in terms of price, size, and features. The same is the case with the Samsung Galaxy watch and Samsung gear fit2 pro. Both are nearly capable of doing similar tasks such as tracking steps, measuring heart rate, ensures to take a proper intake of food on time, warns your health conditions and the GPS support works well in running, workouts, or in bike rides. The Samsung Galaxy watch has a little larger screen thus allowing to view the information related to your workouts with ease, but the tracking still remains the same. Another interesting aspect of both these gadgets is they even connect with other favorite fitness apps and also stays in touch with the Samsung Health. Despite many similarities, you can still find some differences that can help you out to choose the right option.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a pretty compact device as it is 42mm in size, but it may seem a bit cumbersome for certain workouts such as weight lifting or swimming. Despite this, it carries the ability to wear it all day. Moreover, it features a 1.2-inches circular dial and looks like a full-sized watch that you wear every day. On the other end Gear Fit 2 Pro is a lightweight fitness band that is comfortable wear all day. Additionally, you can even wear your mechanical watch on the other hand without having an odd look.

We could even find a newly added feature of swim tracking but it is somewhat found to be unreliable and inaccurate when compared to other smartwatches.
