The Gear Sport is stylish, yet practical with a minimalistic, circular bezel, Super AMOLED 1.2-inch display and improved user interface that makes it easy to view information, even when on-the-go. With Gear Sport, users can work to achieve health and wellness goals, and receive nutrition management alerts and activity recommendations even when they are offline. Designed with military-level durability, it can handle a wide-range of environments[1].  With its sleek, ergonomic form that can be worn in a variety of colorful and easily changeable standard 20mm straps, it is perfect for any occasion so you can effortlessly transition from the gym to a night out with friends. The Gear Sport is also water resistant up to 50M and features a swim tracking feature, as well as an exclusive Speedo app with advanced tracking that tracks swimming performance and has continuous heart rate monitoring for more accurate calorie burn calculation.

In addition to the new swim and heart rate monitoring capabilities of the exclusive Speedo App, the new Gear Fit2 Pro features advanced built-in GPS tracking to capture your run or ride with accurate activity tracking. Gear Fit2 Pro’s Super AMOLED curved 1.5-inch display and a high-resolution color touchscreen make real-time updates and notifications easier to read. The all-new secure, ergonomic band is light weight and comfortable to use for all activities. Consumers who purchase the Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro are eligible for a full year of Under Armour premium apps membership free of cost.

The Gear IconX cord-free earbuds let you effortlessly listen to your favorite music – making your daily commute more enjoyable and helping you get more from your workout. Music can be enjoyed on and offline by transferring songs from a Samsung smartphone[2] or PC, or accessing your favorite tunes through Bluetooth connectivity. Gear IconX has 4GB internal storage that enables consumers to enjoy their favorite tunes for up to 5-hours non-stop. The updated design comes in Black, Gray and Pink and is even more ergonomic and lightweight so they are effectively secure, comfortable and stylish to use. For the fitness enthusiast, the Gear IconX automatically tracks your running routines, and also features the standalone Running Coach function which can be activated by simply tapping the earbud to provide in-ear audio[3] exercise status updates – in real-time and without your phone.
