Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung already has a pretty good idea on what makes a good wearable, and this week it's announcing a few new variants created to push this even more. But instead of a phone, they have focused on launching several wearables at the show, and these wearables are all focused on fitness. How long does the Gear Sport battery life last?

There's no specific price for the Gear Sport yet, but expect a price somewhere between $200 and $300 ($300 is about £230 or AU$375). It is compatible with phones running on Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 7.0 or higher. It's available in Black and Red, with Samsung saying that "its versatile design also makes it a stylish accessory". There will also be lots of color based matching watch faces to choose from.

Next, the Gear Fit2 Pro. However, Samsung insists you'll look just as appropriate in the gym with the Gear Sport, as you would at a night club. That nearly started to change with the radically improved Gear S2, and then the S3 following it: smartwatches which introduced the rotating bezel as a key interface and design element.

Princess Diana's 20th anniversary sparks renewed interest in royal family
William, 35, and Harry, 32, stood looking at photos and floral tributes left for their mother at the Golden Gates of the palace. We hate the thought that Princess Diana was that miserable in her marriage when it had only started.

Even though transferring songs to the earbuds over Bluetooth is a new feature for this model, being forced to do it one song at a time is not OK. Samsung Gear Sport is powered by a dual core processor.

Smart sensors and the Speedo On app allow key swim metrics like Lap count, lap time and stroke time to be tracked easily with swimming goals now counting toward your daily achievements. (Which is fine! Buy an Apple Watch, ya goober.) For Androiders, the Gear Sport fills in nicely. Unlike the Gear S3 and the Gear Sport, two size bands aren't included so you'll need to choose accordingly when you buy. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung's outdoor smartwatch I reviewed past year.

The Gear Fit2 Pro is a Global Positioning System sports band with a built-in heart-rate monitor that ties in to Samsung Health. Samsung has also launched a new pair of wireless earbuds.

Shivering Child Found Clinging to Drowned Mom in Texas
As Tropical Storm Harvey travels inland toward Louisiana and continues to flood Texas, the death toll too has continued to rise. Police said the Beaumont woman and her young daughter were travelling on a service road when the pair came across "high water".

The Gear Fit2 Pro uses the Super AMOLED 1.5-inch display to provide real-time updates and smartphone notifications. The Gear Sport is a supercharged fitness device with improved heart-rate monitoring, automated activity tracking, and a family of apps to seamlessly store all your data and serve up recommendations, thanks to a partnership with Under Armour.

In addition, Gear Sport will be able to control Samsung's IoT devices, act as a remote control, pay for goods using NFC. "Our new Samsung Gear wearables help consumers "go beyond fitness" and enjoy an active, balanced and fulfilled life in a smart and seamless way".
