Fitness fanatics perked up during the announcement of Samsung's new health tech. Sleep trackers and pedometers are now built into the entire Galaxy line. The S5 phone has a heart rate sensor below its rear-facing camera. Coaching software on the Gear Fit wristband tells its wearers when they need to speed up or slow down during workouts. The Gear 2 smartwatch is essentially the Gear Fit, with a larger display and an additional 2MP camera with video recording. And the Gear 2 Neo has the same form factor as the Gear 2 without the camera.
