Samsung’s S Band or S Circle fitness band was originally supposed to launch with the Galaxy S4 last year, but that didn’t happen for some reason. However, several leaks over the past few weeks have hinted that this accessory could me making a comeback of sorts. And today, the Korean manufacturer officially showed off this fitness band in Germany, detailing its features in the process.
With Samsung already launching the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit smartwatches already, the launch of another wearable device doesn’t seem very logical. But according to Samsung, this isn’t a standard smartwatch as it will mostly rival the likes of Pebble, Jawbone Up and the Nike FuelBand which can only track your runs, sleep pattern and other activity.
However, the Samsung Activity Tracker comes with a notification LED which will alert users if there’s a message, email or any other important activity on their connected smartphone. The fitness tracker can be removed from the standard strap and attached using a clip to your shirt or jeans with relative ease, which is something the competitors do not offer.
The device comes with a battery life of 5 days with micro USB charging support and connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0. Samsung will price this at €80 ($111) which isn’t a lot for a fitness tracker.
