Samsung Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e have been launched in India. Both new smart fitness wearables are claimed to "complement the personal wellness journey" of users by tracking daily activities such as walk, run, and bike. Samsung also says the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e are water resistant up to 5ATM. Alongside health and fitness features, the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e are capable of receiving alerts and messages and notify users about an alarm, calendar event, and weather alert. The Galaxy Fit also has the ability to display a dual-clock watch face to help users manage their schedule even in a new time zone. Additionally, both new fitness devices are capable of tracking your sleep and analysing your sleep patterns.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit price in India is set at Rs. 9,990. The fitness band comes in Black and Silver colour options. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy Fit e is priced at Rs. 2,590, and it comes in Black, White, and Yellow colour variants. Both Samsung Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e will go on sale via Flipkart, Myntra, and the Samsung Online Shop. The new Samsung fitness bands will also be offered via Samsung SmartCafe and multi-brand retail stores offline.
While the Galaxy Fit will go on sale from both offline and online stores from June 25, the Galaxy Fit e will be put up for pre-bookings on Flipkart starting July 1, and will be exclusively available via the above-mentioned online stores until July 19, after its release on July 5.
Featuring a 0.95-inch full-colour AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy Fit allows you to view your activity data while on-the-move. The fitness band can track activities such as walking, running, and biking using a built-in array of sensors that consists of an accelerometer, gyroscope, and heart rate monitor. Further, Samsung claims that the device sends an alert to you if your heart rate rises above a pre-defined level while resting.
By default, the Samsung Galaxy Fit tracks up to six activities using its Auto Workout Tracking feature. You can, however, select and customise as many as ten preferred activities from a collection of more than 90 workouts on the Samsung Health app. Similarly, the Galaxy Fit is capable of analysing your sleep patterns using its auto sleep tracking technology. Information such as the total elapsed sleep time can be viewed through the Samsung Health app.
Apart from the fitness-focussed features, the new Samsung fitness band is capable of providing you notifications about new messages and voice calls. You can also use preset messages to easily respond to incoming texts. Further, the band syncs Do Not Disturb setting of your phone.

Just like the Galaxy Fit, the Samsung Galaxy Fit e also comes with the Auto Workout Tracking feature but it detects three activities by default instead of six.
