As is the norm with Samsung devices these days, the Gear fit 2 is water resistance with an IP68 rating. This device has the same drawing factors of the original Gear fit yet builds upon what its predecessor had to offer. It has a better display that shows information vertically when the hand is raised, better ergonomic design and GPS tracking. the most exciting addition for me Is the standalone music player that can play music without any pairing of a smartphone.gear_fit2_spotify_album-100664006-orig
