Smartwatches and fitness wearables typically form two distinct categories, but the Samsung Gear Sport is working to merge them seamlessly. The smartwatch is a dialed back version of the Gear S3 with added performance aspects to make it better suited for fitness activities while still performing the necessities of a smartwatch.

The Samsung Gear Sport looks similar to the S3, but it's visibly smaller than that previous model. That slimmer profile coupled with added features like a built-in heart rate monitor, waterproofing for swim tracking, and compatibility with several different fitness and sleep-tracking make it a good option for recording fitness information. On top of these features, the smartwatch is functional and attractive enough to be worn on an everyday basis as well.
