Today, in an event in New York City, Samsung announced a successor for the original Gear Fit which became a quite successful fitness band/smartwatch. Samsung also announced its first pair of fully wireless earbuds called the Gear IconX.

The Gear Fit uses a similarly designed vertical 1.55 inch Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen and is powered by a dual core 1.0 Giga Hertz (GHz) processor with 4GB of storage on-board. The Gear Fit will also include an optical heart-rate sensor, GPS connectivity for tracking your outdoor activities without carrying a phone, IP68 immersion certification, and it will carry a 200mAh battery that will last up to 3 days of utilize or 5 days of standby time.

Samsung also announced the Gear IconX. Samsung’s truly wireless earbuds that don’t have any wires at all. They will work as a standard pair of Bluetooth headphones, will also have 4GB of onboard storage, feature touchless controls for navigating through your playlist, and also features some fitness tracking abilities that will sync with S Health.

They are going to last about 3.5 hours when listening to stored music, or 1.5 hours of streaming Bluetooth audio. Both small buds are inserted into a capsule to be charged and each full charge of the capsule holds about 2 full earbud charges. Though the battery doesn’t last very long on the Gear IconX’s, it’s a tradeoff to like truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds.

Preorders go live tomorrow for the Samsung Gear Fit 2 and will be officially for sale on June 10 for a retail price of $180. The Gear IconX, however, has no pricing information available yet and will be released sometime in Q3 of this year.
