Sam­sung’s sporty se­quel is an in­ex­pen­sive way to get smart­watch and fitness fea­tures on your wrist. The slen­der Gear Fit2 shows plenty on its curved, 1.5-inch touch­screen, in­clud­ing step count, heart rate, stair­cases climbed, sleep score, and op­tions to track ex­er­cises from yoga to hikes. It can also track some ac­tiv­i­ties au­to­mat­i­cally after 10 min­utes of move­ment, and fea­tures a GPS chip. On the smart­watch front, the Fit2 shows alerts from a con­nected An­droid phone and will al­low ba­sic replies. Those who want to is­sue voice com­mands will need to in­vest in a watch, and wear­ers should be wary of its one-click fas­tener, but this exercise buddy is a smart one.
