Samsung’s next two bits of wearable tech just well and truly jumped the gun.
Photos of the Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker and IconX wireless earbuds have turned up online, before Samsung had made either one official.
The pics were leaked to Evan Blass over at VentureBeat, proving once again that @EVleaks is still the man to beat when it comes to digging up info the manufacturers aren’t ready to share yet.
The person testing both gadgets says the Gear Fit 2 will keep the curved OLED screen from the original, but add built-in GPS so you can track your run without bringing your phone along too.
They didn’t share more concrete specs, but expect smartphone notifications, heart rate monitoring and fitness tracking.
The first Gear Fit was a pretty slick wearable, so a sequel can’t be a bad thing, but we’re a lot more excited by the IconX earbuds.
They look more than a little like the Bragi Dash wireless buds that rocked up at last year’s CES, complete with dust and water-resistant casing, touch-sensitive controls and heart rate monitoring – all without a cable connecting the two buds together.
The IconX buds come with a case that keeps them juiced up when you’re not wearing them, and apparently have 4GB of on-board storage for filling with music tracks. That should mean you won’t need any other tech with you while you’re exercising.
There’s no word on a release date or price for either gadget just yet, so you could be in for a wait before you’ll be able to strap one on, or pop a pair in.
