This is the culmination of Fitbit‘s efforts. They started out with fitness trackers, fitness bands then smart fitness trackers like the Fitbit Surge and Blaze but they never had a full-fledged smartwatch before. Then, they unveiled the Fitbit Ionic, the company’s first smartwatch.
Now, you can buy one right here in Malaysia but I’m not sure you really want to.
Samsung Malaysia has announced the availability and pricing of its latest fitness wearable devices. After introducing its Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band, the Gear Sport and Gear IconX are finally hitting Malaysia.

Germany has decided to completely ban smartwatches for kids, and its because they resemble more a spying device than a toy and could be a severe detriment to your child if they are kept in use.
Samsung’s Gear Sport looks like a pretty solid smartwatch. It’s got nearly all the awesome features of its bigger brother — the Gear S3 Frontier — adds swim-proofing while also coming in a body that’s both smaller and lighter.
But, our judgments so far have been based on super quick hands-on sessions with it. We didn’t really get to spend any quality time with the device and check out the accessories it comes with out of the box…until now. Here’s a closer look at the Samsung Gear Sport.
There was a lot to like about the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. It was well-built, good looking and a more than worthy successor to the Gear S2. However, it wasn’t perfect. You couldn’t take it swimming, it was big and bulky, and — despite being more affordable than its competition — still cost RM1,399.
It would have been such a shame if people simply wrote this solid device off because of those limitations. Thankfully, if those were your biggest concerns with the Gear S3, Samsung may just have the solution for you. In comes the Gear Sport and, as far as I can tell, it’s a smaller, lighter, and swim proof Gear S3 Frontier.
Looking for a smartwatch but you’re on a budget? The Xiaomi-backed Huami Amazfit may be the wearable for you.
The Apple Watch is no longer just the world’s most popular smartwatch. It’s also currently the world’s number one watch.
For its third generation smartwatch, Apple has retained its iconic square face design but they have added more functions for greater freedom. In last year’s Series 2, Apple had added GPS and water resistance for swimming so that you can use your watch in more places than before. For this year, they are making the watch more independent and you can use it standalone almost anywhere without having to bring your iPhone.
Odds are, you’ve never heard of the brand WeLoop. However, you’ve probably seen what an Apple Watch looks like and I don’t think anyone can argue that this watch and the Apple Watch are two incredibly similar-looking devices.
Well, this wearable is called the WeLoop Hey 3S and it’s one of two brand new fitness trackers that the company has launched in Malaysia through accessories distributor Olike. And, looks aside, it bleeds value-for-money.
Since Fitbit absorbed Pebble like an intergalactic space creature would a taco sandwich, all eyes have been trained on the fitness wearable company to see what they’re going to do with their new acquisition. Rumours have hinted at a smartwatch and this latest set of leaks appear to confirm that fact.
This is what the upcoming Fitbit smartwatch will look like.
In addition to new iPhones, Apple will be releasing a new smartwatch later this year. The current Apple Watch Series 2 is already a huge upgrade over the previous version as it gets built-in GPS and water resistance up to 50 metres deep.
In order for the Watch to work with greater independence, it has to support standalone connectivity via 4G LTE. That’s apparently the next big feature that will be introduced on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 3.
