Phones weren’t the only unveilings by Samsung. The Korean Giant also announced the Galaxy watch Active, Galaxy Fit/Fit-E and the Galaxy Buds.
The Galaxy Watch is just a sportier version of the Galaxy watch that comes with a heart-rate monitor, water resistance, lightweight aluminum build and ability to access smartphone notifications.
The Galaxy Fit is just a fitness tracker that records your heartbeat, steps, stress and sleep. Nothing that we haven’t seen already.
