The Samsung Gear Fit2 was recently unveiled and one of its key features is its independence from smartphones. The fitness wearable is now capable of doing some of the important things without the need for a helping hand. For instance, it has its own own music player as well as 4 GB of onboard storage for music files. Of course, those are loaded through a paired smartphone.

In addition to that, the Samsung Gear Fit2 also has a built-in GPS radio that allows the wearer to run their maps even if they leave their smartphone at home. Beyond that, the Samsung Gear Fit2 can recognize when you've started to workout and start to track whatever activity you're engaging in automatically. This makes the system much more instinctual.
