Samsung Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, Gear IconX put fitness first

  • Sony sign at IFA

The last accessory announced by Samsung was the Gear IconX (2018) cord-free earbuds.

That storage space will come in useful if you're a Spotify subscriber, as the Gear Sport supports the streaming service's offline mode.

Also included with the Gear Sport is 768MB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage, while the battery measures in at 300mAh.

The Gear Sport can also be used to pay for things using NFC (but not magnetic stripe systems) via Samsung Pay, and also functions as a presentation tool and remote for the Gear VR headset. Still, not even the latest Gear S3-one of the best smartwatches on the market-was enough to put Samsung in the conversation with Apple on the smartwatch side, or Fitbit on the fitness side.

Like Samsung's Gear S3, mobile payments will be support, but unlike the S3, it will only handle Near-Field Communication, meaning Samsung's regular reliance on Magnetic Stripe Technology ("MST") won't be found on this model.

US Crude Settles Down Ahead Of API Data
Over the last ten weeks, according to the API, crude oil inventories in the United States have shed more than 46 million barrels. Outside of the immediate impact from Harvey, last week saw another decline in USA exploration and production activity.

So far, Samsung hasn't chose to announced the Gear Sport price, but at least we know it's bound to arrive later this fall, so potential customers shouldn't have to wait too long before they can order one.

In a post on Twitter, Samsung shared a link to its website where those who are interested will be able to tune into the company's live stream for IFA 2017 which will be kicking off on the 30th of August, 2017 at 6PM CET. The wearable fitness band comes with a 1.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display running at a resolution of 216x432pixels and pixel density of 310ppi.

At the same time, it is still a smartwatch and you get the same expected smartwatch features.

It also looks like offline Spotify music is finally ready.

If we're talking Gear Sport versus Apple Watch, the divide is simple: The Apple Watch works on Apple devices, and the Gear Sport works on Android. The smartwatch also comes with a gyroscope, barometer, heart rate sensor and ambient light sensor.

Liverpool Agree Club Record Fee But The Player Will Join NEXT Summer
The 22-year-old RB Leipzig midfielder has been Jurgen Klopp's top transfer target for the duration of the summer. The Reds have now beaten out Barcelona for Keita's signature after the Spanish side were linked to him last week.

Plus your TV will then show your heart rate while you exercise, which should make it easier to monitor than if you had to keep glancing at your wrist.

Gear Fit2 Pro will begin shipping in the United States starting September 15 at a retail price of $199 (roughly Rs. 13,800).

Samsung has partnered with leading galleries and museums such as the LUMAS, Saatchi Art, and Sedition to further enhance The Frame as an art-centric device within the home.

The Gear Sport touts a battery life of up to 4 days and it's available in a choice of blue or black in a 42.9 MM casing. Just tap-and-hold on an earbud and bring up the digital personal assistant. And for fitness gurus, the Gear IconX automatically tracks running routines and features a standalone running coach, which can provide in-ear audio exercise status updates in real-time (and without your phone).

Liverpool make bid to Monaco for Thomas Lemar
The promising 21-year-old scored 12 goals in 39 appearances last season and has three years left on his Monaco contract. It's not all bad news for Liverpool, however, as they confirmed the signing of RB Leipzig's Naby Keita on Monday night.
