Samsung Gear Fit

24 February 2014

The Verge:

The display on the Gear Fit is the real draw: it’s a rectangular, curved AMOLED touchscreen panel with characteristic-for-Samsung vibrant colors and exceptionally wide viewing angles. The curve in the display allows the Fit to conform around your wrist yet still have a large enough screen to make text readable and buttons easy to press with your finger. It’s not the first product from Samsung to have a curved display, but it does feel like it’s the first to actually benefit from its curvature. Plus it just looks cool.

It looks cool, but isn’t it sideways … When you turn to look at your wrist, the display will be vertical but the UI is horizontal?

Apart from that oddity, the device looks genuinely cool. It’s a nice, simple fitness band; clock, notifications, pedometer and heart-rate sensor.
