From the eyes of a consumer, it seems like Samsung is making their products even more affordable now while offering an even cheaper “essential” variant of the said product lineup. We have the Galaxy S10e, then the Galaxy Tab S5e, and now we even have the Galaxy Fit-e that will be available alongside the new Galaxy Fit.
We already know that the Gear Fit-e is in the Malaysian market as it was part of the bundled gift with Samsung’s #iChanged campaign. Now, they’re available as a standalone purchase with a seriously affordable price too.
The Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit-e are both thin and lightweight, made to easily and intuitively track and assist you to achieve your fitness goals. The Galaxy Fit-e, as the name suggests, only has the essential activity tracking like biking, hiking, running, and more. These two fitness bands also has sleep analysis and smart stress management to monitor your wellbeing at all times.
In addition to that, the beefier Galaxy Fit, comes with a fully-colored AMOLED display and functions like any other smartwatch too – twisting your twist causes the screen to turn on. It also allows the user to choose more than 90 different activities from the Samsung Health app on the phone.
Both the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit-e come with an intuitive UI to provide the best, most user-friendly experience too. It alerts you when there are any calls or notifications, and also has widgets which can display information synced straight from your smartphone. You can look at the calendar or weather right on wrist!
Both devices are water resistant of 5 ATM so you won’t need to take them off being taking a shower or a swim.
The Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit-e are now available for purchase now at Samsung Malaysia Online Store and will be available at Samsung Experience stores starting from 14th June 2019 onwards. The prices and colors that will be available are as below:
- Samsung Galaxy Fit – RM369

Honestly, the new Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit-e looks more like a standard fitness band than the Gear Fit2 that I personally loved a few years ago.
