Samsung today held a small event in Germany where it showcased its new S Band activity tracker. The €80 ($111) wearable will compete with devices like the Fitbit Flex and the Nike FuelBand, monitoring sleep, calorie consumption, and every step you take throughout your day.

While the Galaxy S5 will be the star of the show during Samsung’s Unpacked 5 event in Barcelona on Monday, we could see a slew of different devices across several product categories — one of which could be a brand new health tracker called the “Galaxy Gear Fit,” according to a new report.


Samsung almost managed to keep the Galaxy Gear a secret, but just two days ahead of its official unveiling, pictures of a prototype have been leaked for the first time. This is the device that’s been given to developers a select Samsung partners, according to the sources that obtained the pictures — but is this the design you can expect the Galaxy Gear to ship with?


Why doesn’t Nike want to bring the Fuelband to Android?

The Nike Fuelband was one of my favorite gadgets last year. It tracks all your movement to help you stay in shape. It syncs everything with your iPhone. Plus, it looks pretty freaking cool.

Nike Fuelband is part of the wave of futuristic wearable fitness devices. In a couple of years we’ll all have something like it, but for now, the Nike Fuelband only syncs with your computer or iPhone. There’s no Android app, and according to Nike, you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for one.
