Samsung is poised to launch the highly anticipated Galaxy Fit 3, an affordable smart band, after a three-year hiatus. Recent public certification listings and leaks suggest that the launch is imminent. The device has also appeared on the Bluetooth SIG certification, along with the upcoming rugged smartphone, the Galaxy XCover 7. Both the new smartphone and the Galaxy Fit 3 are expected to feature Bluetooth 5.3 technology. However, details regarding their specifications remain sparse.
Expected to be released in the first half of 2024, the Galaxy Fit 3 will precede the Galaxy Watch 7 lineup. Interestingly, Samsung does not plan a special event for the launch of the Galaxy Fit 3. The smart band is rumored to feature an OLED display, slightly larger than its predecessor, and offer functionalities like sleep tracking, heart rate monitoring, GPS, an accelerometer, and a gyro sensor. It is expected to be available in three colors: Grey, Gold, and Black.
