Samsung introduces its Super AMOLED Gear Fit

If you haven't joined the fitness band revolution yet, we don't entirely blame you.
 
But outside of suspicious rashes — if it's the look of fitness bands that bothers you, then you'll be smitten with the Samsung Gear Fit.

It's like a fitness band and a smartwatch got drunk after yoga class and made sweet, sweet love.
 
It'll do all the things you expect a fitness band to do, like track your exercise and your sleeping patterns, as well as monitor your heart rate, and how many steps you take throughout the day.
 
The Gear Fit also talks to your phone and alerts you to incoming calls, texts, emails, and events from third-party apps.
 
But the real draw is its curved Super AMOLED display — which Samsung claims is the first in the wearables space — that provides beautiful resolution and bright colors in a very tiny package, attached to a band available in black, orange, and mocha grey.
 
The only downside is that you'll have to wait until April for it to hit shelves. But, if you've held out this long already, waiting another month for beauty ain't so bad.
