In both boxes, we found the same sets of bracelets with removable strap, charging and usage guidelines.
Appearance and ergonomics
Bracelets are sold in different colors. Fit - in black and silver, Fit E - in black, white and lemon yellow.
Let's start with the Galaxy Fit. The bracelet is made of hard plastic strap - made of thick rubber. As with any such tracker, it weighs almost nothing. Its comfortable to wear, without taking even during sleep.
The only unpleasant nuance - not very convenient carrying strap. I found it difficult to tighten it, consolidate and push through the tail into the wrist. But it is a matter of habit. Removable strap, secured with the clips on each side of the housing.
Separate plus for charging: with magnets bracelet if he flies into it approaching.
Galaxy Fit E is similar to the older brother in ergonomics, but a couple of differences are still there. Firstly, the case is not otscholkivaetsya and squeezed. Second, the charge is non-magnetic.
There is also a slight difference in size, which, however, is not noticed. Fit E In practice, when the smaller screen on the hand feels like and Fit.
Nuance to strap the same, you need to get used to.
Displays models differ greatly. Screen Resolution Galaxy Fit - 240 × 120 pixels. He colored and made of AMOLED technology.
The Fit E PMOLED-integrated monochrome display with a resolution of 128 × 64 pixels. Due to the frequency of the flicker of a screen display in the picture is incomplete, but in reality it is displayed correctly.
Galaxy Fit operated using touch screen and mechanical buttons on the side of the housing.
The dial lights up when you turn the wrist, goes out automatically or with a light cotton on the display.
The screen supports swipe. With such gestures can switch between widgets and scroll through the information in them. The default widgets: notification, weather, quality of sleep, stress levels, exercise routine, activity and heart rate.
Swipe from the top panel is a bracelet settings, such as adjusting the brightness level or the inclusion of protection from false clicks in the water.
Notifications appear on the screen, but the sense from them a little: in the notifications of the messengers, you can see the sender's name and the beginning of the message, and from other applications, as a rule, only the program icon.
Mailers are sometimes signed by the sender in the notification and its subject - no longer exists.
Fit E have no mechanical buttons. This means that a clock can not go to the training mode: this activity is only read in the background and, most likely, is not always correct. And yet here is more modest set of widgets: a pedometer, calories burned, sleep mode, and the weather. Calendar and pulse can be added to the application.
To control it is provided only one motion across the screen, and it does not matter whether you do swipe or just click on it. Guidelines recommend to press harder on the display, but does not trigger any manipulation in 100% of cases, regardless of the power of touch.
It also supports a notification with a minimum of information, and the screen lights up at the turn of the wrist.
Using the application
Guidelines recommend the use of bracelets with Galaxy Wearable application. It is supported on devices running Android. We tested the trackers with the iPhone, so the established Galaxy Fit with similar functions and interfaces. The first program shows the battery level bracelet, below is a button to go to the Samsung Health - service Samsung to track activity and sleep quality. Bracelet automatically gives information to your profile in the service - when another tracker will have applications in Costa of intermediaries.
Also in the Galaxy Fit application, you can set the alarm clock with vibration - one of the main functions of these bracelets, which will get up on time, without waking the household with a loud sound. With the help of a special button, you can turn on the bracelet search mode - the display lights up and vibrates tracker. Built-in speaker is not in the device. More you can configure access notifications from different applications.
In the application, you can select the dial and set of widgets. Here are the options for the tracker Galaxy Fit.
But the set of dials and widgets for Galaxy Fit E.
Trackers have dust and moisture protection and allow the dive to a depth of 50 m to check them for resistance, we did not, but we believe:. Device looks reliable.
Seriously engaged in diving with a bracelet on her arm and expose it to strong water jets manufacturer does not recommend.
Capacity batteries have almost doubled, but the battery, according to the manufacturer, similar - about a week. Defuse the device with a full battery failed test for four days. Full charge lasts about an hour.
Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit E - trackers, which do not cause any complaints. They are tiny and do well with tracking activity, are able to wake the owner of vibration and report new notifications on your phone.
At the same time Galaxy Fit line-up is full of competitors for comparable or even lower price, which are similar to our test in both appearance and function.
Hence the conclusion: fitness bracelets Samsung - nice but not the best choice as a budget and no less heaped model offers, for example, Xiaomi. But still a little different for owners of Samsung, the adherents of the ecosystem and the South Korean company Samsung Health service users. They can buy and enjoy.
