For those who do not know, IFA is the most important technology fair in Europe. Each year, the new technological world of Samsung sets its sights on the old continent to see what the main actors of the digital circus present or show. And of course, the omnipresent Samsung is always protagonist in an event in which this year has surprised.

Usually the Korean giant realizes a whole display of products that cover all the fields of consumer electronics: televisions, refrigerators, washing machines, mobiles, wearables possible devices?. But this year has surprised everyone by showing at their opening event several smart watches that point directly to the king of the sector: the Apple Watch.

Samsung has taken advantage of this year’s edition of IFA to present two new smart watches focused on the world of sport and that, under no circumstances, compete with the current Gear S3. Under the name of Gear Sport and Gear Fit 2 Pro Samsung has shown two clocks that represent a turn of the nut to this type of products and that will also count on the collaboration of sports brands like Speedo or Under Armor to develop profits in the future.

The Gear Sport is a smart 42 mm watch. In diameter available in blue or pink with a Super AMOLED 1.2 “display that comes with a large variety of wristbands both in braided nylon and rubber. The watch includes new sports features such as the possibility of Watch your heart rate on a Samsung compatible TV in real time.

Gear Fit Pro 2 is a wrist band activity monitor that comes to improve Fit 2.

Another of the devices available that presented Samsung were his new headphones Gear IconX. In this year’s edition they promise that the wireless sound of these headphones is much better and that their autonomy reaches the 5 hours of use, something really impressive if we consider the small size of this device.
