The Samsung Gear Fit was announced during the MWC as a surprise package along with the Galaxy S5. What’s not immediately obvious about this device is the fact that this uses Samsung’s curved AMOLED display which makes it an ideal companion for your wrist. And now, the Gear Fit has received the ‘Best Mobile Device’ award at the MWC event in Barcelona.
Earlier during the event, the HTC One received the Top Smartphone Of The Year award which was a matter of pride for the company. This new award will certainly give Samsung the much needed boost for the success of the Gear Fit. Perhaps the only downside of the smartwatch is the limited compatibility. It was mentioned that only 20 Samsung devices were compatible with the smartwatch, so people who own a LG, Sony, HTC or any other branded smartphone, this smartwatch is no good. Samsung hasn’t spilled the beans on the pricing of the smartwatch, but anything close to $250 should be reasonable.
