Samsung claims Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e are easy to interact with on the go, thanks to a simple and intuitive UX and a user-friendly smart experience. Receive alerts and messages or check the widget which includes information synced straight from your smartphone —like alarm, calendar or weather—without ever needing to touch your phone. When you travel to a new time zone, your Galaxy Fit will also automatically display a dual-clock watch face to make it easier to manage your schedule. Both devices are water resistant to 5ATM.

Samsung Galaxy Buds

As you can see, Samsung Buds will compete with the popular Apple AirPods. The former is powered by AKG and offers enhanced Ambient Sound, which allows users to hear the surroundings clearly even while the buds are in your ears, so you can remain aware of your environment at the same time as you take a phone call or listen to your favourite tunes.

Premium sound extends to the sound of your voice, as well. The Adaptive Dual Microphone uses one inner microphone and one outer microphone in each ear-bud, so you can deliver your voice clearly in both loud and quiet environments.
