Alongside its Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch and the new Galaxy S5, Samsung has announced the Gear Fit, a fitness band that will take on the likes of Nike, Fitbit and Jawbone when it hits the market on April 11. The device weights 27 grams and includes a heart rate monitor, pedometer, sleep tracker and a 1.84-inch Super AMOLED curved display for displaying notifications.

Samsung expects the Gear Fit’s battery life to last about 3-4 days on typical usage, though minimal usage could stretch up to 5 days. As far as sensors go, the water and dust-resistant band includes an accelerometer, gyro and heart rate monitor. The Gear Fit’s changeable straps come in black, orange and “mocha grey.”
While you can use the Gear Fit as a standalone device, you’ll want to connect it to one of 20 Galaxy devices to get access to alerts for calls, emails, texts, calendars.
