Samsung has announced that its new fitness tracker, Galaxy Fit 2, and its new Trio wireless charger can now be purchased. The company previously announced both products during its virtual event Life Unstoppable in September.
Galaxy Fit 2 is the successor to the Galaxy Fit band, which was released last year. The updated version includes a larger screen and improved battery life. Samsung says the new model can last up to three weeks on a single charge, depending on your settings. Galaxy Fit 2 is $ 59 and is available in black and red.
The Wireless Charger Trio is a $ 89 charging charger that allows you to power three electronic devices at the same time – a smartwatch, earphones and phone, or a smartwatch and two phones. It is a successor to the Wireless Charger Duo, which previously could only charge two devices at once. The Wireless Charger Trio’s design is a cushion instead of a tripod and cushion like its predecessor.
The Trio wireless charging pad can also charge iPhones (iPhone X or later), but its right pad only supports charging for Samsung Galaxy smartwatches. It is unclear whether the Trio supports charging for AirPods with a wireless charging case, but it is likely that its predecessor can charge both AirPods and iPhone.
Samsung also announced that it is adding two additional color options (“mystic red” and “aura blue”) to its wireless bean-shaped earbuds, Galaxy Buds Live. Compared to other models, including the cheaper Galaxy Buds Plus, my colleagues Chris Welch and Becca Farsace said that Galaxy Buds Live stands out because of their unconventional design, long battery life and powerful sound.
The red color is available now on Samsung’s website and Amazon. Samsung says the blue model will be sold exclusively on Best Buy from tomorrow, October 17, but it looks like a similar blue color option is available now on Amazon.
