Well, that didn't take long. Samsung's new, slim, heart-rate-monitoring Gear Fit2 fitness band goes on sale in Australia today, and it's going up against the Fitbit Blaze, Microsoft's Band 2 and some other great fitness trackers that also work double duty as smartwatches. It's not the cheapest one out there, but it looks like a well-rounded package.
It's not just the media telling you to move your arse - the tech sector is in on the action. Pebble has their new fit-focused watches and Jaybird has its superb water-resistant earbuds. And now Samsung's got its own addition to both categories.
