It did look stupid I’ll admit, but I was tracking and comparing these two so that I can make this article for you guys. So in this article I’ll be reviewing and comparing like, I said, the Samsung Galaxy fit SmartWatch 2. The inspire HR, which was made by Fitbit. Both of them came out about the same time just about a month or two ago, and both of them cost about $ 99, so both of them have very similar specs in a lot of ways.
New Galaxy Fit vs Fitbit Inspire HR
They track your heart rate. They get notifications from your phone, they track your sleep and they do a lot more than that and I’ll talk about that later in this article, but which one is actually the better SmartWatch for you and are these actually offering the same package? How accurate are these smartreades I’ll be answering those questions in this article? So, let’s get into it.

So you don’t miss the latest of my articles. So I ran these through a lot of different tests and one that they actually both passed and was very impressive, was the heart rate, and that was one that I was a little bit concerned with, because the heart rate is probably one of the main reasons. People are buying these, so when I wore them side-by-side the heart rate between the two never really varied by more than two or three beats, except for one situation, and that is when I had the Galaxy fit now when you wear the Galaxy fit, you can do Three different things with these settings on your phone, so one of course you can say never reads your heart rate, which obviously we’re not doing that and the other one is when it reads it: every 10 minutes which seem to be very accurate and the last one Was continuous reading now the Fitbit always does continuous reading.
You can also turn it off to have no readings at all, but you’re not going to have that 10 minute interval reading. So with this one, when you’re doing the galaxy fit right here when you’re reading continuously, I did notice that every now and then, if you bump it the wrong way or I’m not really sure what was happening, but it would spike up to a hundred. Seventy eight beats per minute for no reason and then gradually go down, so this operates with a moving average to measure your heart rate and for some reason, it’ll measure.
You know a few too many beats at once and that’ll screw up the average for about a minute where it’ll spike up to like 170 and then you’ll read it come back down to normal now. This is not something that happened. Often it happened maybe once or twice a day I’ll just look down, and it would be way too high for the most part like I said it was very accurate. So, for that reason, between these two bands, I would have to give the trophy for heart rate to Fitbit, although I do really like the feature where you can measure only once every 10 minutes on this one, but that sort of relates more to battery life, which We’Ll talk about in a minute, okay, so in broad daylight, we’re just going to do a quick test to see how well you can see these two and on the right we have the Galaxy fit and on the Left, we have the Fitbit.
So just put my wrist, you can see they’re both on you can easily see the Galaxy fit. That’S a brightness level 10 though, and it looks like you really can’t see the Fitbit very well at all. It is on. I can see it, but the camera. I don’t think it’s picking that up so yeah, that’s right on it’s on right now, so just a quick underwater test you can see these are both rated for 50 meters or about 5 atmospheres.
