Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit & Galaxy Buds are Samsung's new wearables

Beyond the Galaxy S10 and Fold, Samsung revealed multiple wearable devices on Wednesday: the Galaxy Watch Active, two Galaxy Fit trackers, and its AirPods-like Galaxy Buds.

Samsung Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Buds


The Active uses a 1.1-inch, always-on AMOLED display, and includes exercise, sleep, stress, and general health-tracking features, such as an optional blood presure app. It supports Bixby voice controls and runs Samsung' Tizen OS, but can connect to both Android devices and iPhones, the latter including models as far back as the iPhone 5.

For people who only need a dedicated fitness tracker, the Galaxy Fit is a scaled-back accessory with a 0.95-inch AMOLED screen that can manually or automatically track workouts from a list of over 90 activities. It retains heart rate, sleep, and stress tracking, and will sync with a smartphone for notifications and features like a dual-clock watchface. The tracker is waterproof to a depth of 165 feet, like the Active.

A cheaper version, the Galaxy Fit e, uses a 0.74-inch PMOLED panel and makes performance sacrifices, for instance dropping a gyroscope.

The Galaxy Buds sport a technology called Enhanced Ambient Sound, making them suitable for listening on wheels or in heavy foot traffic. For phone calls and other voice input the device uses twin microphones on each earbud, facing in and out, intended to make a wearer heard regardless of where they are.

Samsung Galaxy Buds


The Buds can handle up to 6 hours of audio playback on their own, plus another 7 hours when recharged by their case. Black, white, and yellow versions will be available, matching a few of the Galaxy S10 color options.

Samsung didn't immediately say when the products will be available, or how much they'll cost.

Update: Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Buds are now available for pre-order from Samsung directly, as well as B&H Photo.

Customers can take advantage of special offers, such as free Galaxy Buds with S10 and S10+ pre-orders, at both retailers now through March 7.

    For a moment I was worried they they would not have some obvious, blatant rip-off - after introducing some firsts. 
    I wonder how the blood pressure measurement is working.

    Are they doing fit bit ripoffs now?

    The AirPod ripoffs were always going to happen.

    So do the buds hand off to different devices liked AirPods or do you need to manually connect each device. 

    Has anyone seen any Samsung devices on progress wrist, I see Apple watches everywhere I'm surprised the number of people who have the Apple watch.

    Poor Samsung. Can't innovate but also getting outplayed by Xiaomi and Huawei on the Apple IP theft front.

    Are they actually AirPod ripoffs or the 2nd iterative advance of the Gear IconX they introduced Jul 2016?  Also isn't the Galaxy Fit just the most up to date version of the Gear Fit they brought out in Apr 2014?

    I didnt know their Watch and other wearables could pair with iPhones. Bring it on. Keeps Apple from getting complacent.

    The 5-hour talk time. Oh, sorry. AirPods only have a 2-hour talk time. My bad.

    Umm, they are complete ripoffs. 

    They dont have single original design thought from TVs to refrigerators. Their successes are directly from ripping off designs from other manufacturers.

    What does that have to do with the fit bit and airpods?  Neither the buds nor the fitness band ripoff Apple or Fitbit.

    The Galaxy Fit looks just a little bit like a fitbit...

    Or, and bear with me here, does the Galaxy Fit look suspiciously like the Gear Fit from 2014?  Now I'm no Inspector Clouseau, but if I was to judge I'd say Sammy iterated their own product.  Wouldn't you?   Btw, the Fitbit Charge 2 you have pictured?  It came out 2 years after the Gear Fit,  So unless Samsung copied time travel from someone...

    Why is everybody saying they ripped off apple? Samsungs wireless earbuds came out before the apple airpods.
