The curved display of the Galaxy Fit works out well at making the device ‘fit’ perfectly on your arm. In addition to this, the gear fit is insanely light (just 27 grams) and also water and dust resistant. This makes the Gear Fit the perfect 24/7 wearable companion whether you are taking a nap or on your next adventure.

The Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit was infact awarded the Best Mobile Device title at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.
