Gear Fit 2arde is a wearable device that tracks your steps, weight loss goals, and overall health and fitness. It features a GPS chip that matches your movements to exercise programs.
Gear Fit 2arde was released just this month, so stay tuned for more tips on how to use it. Today, we will discuss some of the different ways you can use Gear Fit 2arde.
Open the Samsung Health app
Once you have the app, you can open it virtually anywhere. You can also locate it on your mobile device or computer if you have Samsung Health enabled.
Select GPS > Indoor or Outdoor
You can select between GPS mode in the Gear Fit 2 smartphone app or via the Gear Fit 2 device. This determines whether your device will use its built-in GPS, or if you will need to add a GPS device.
Built-in GPS is the most common method of using a device’s GPS. You must manually set it up, but once you do, you can access your location and map data just like any other navigational tool.
Using an external GPS is helpful if you do not have good reception or if you are traveling outside of regular signal range. You can purchase an external GPS unit that connects to your smartphone via a USB, but we recommend using the built-in option here for two reasons: first, it is more accurate than using an external one, and second, it gives you more flexibility in where you need to go.
If you choose external vs. built-in GPS, chose internal vs.
Select a exercise
Once your device has connected to the workout via GPS, you can select a different exercise to start on. You can also go back if you changed locations.
Gear Fit 2 allows you to set up multiple workouts on one device. To do this, you must create an account using the website www.gearfit2.com and then create as many workouts as you would like on the device.
Once these are set up, you can start working out! Once started, Gear Fit 2 will send out notifications when it is ready and location-triggered alerts when activities such as walking or swimming are required.
These notifications and location changes may seem strange at first, but it becomes easier as you learn how to use them.
Tap the gear icon on your Gear Fit 2
This will bring up the GPS map mode menu. You can now tap on the map to activate it.
Using GPS on a smartphone is pretty similar to using it on a computer. You must connect your phone to your device via Bluetooth, and then you can tap on the map to begin navigating.
To use it on a computer, you will have to install the GoGeo app from your device, and then you can tap on the map to begin navigating.
Third-party apps can also use GPS; just find one that works for you and put trust in it! Some apps claim to have a high resolution map, but keep an eye out for coverage as they may not be accurate with low-resolution maps.
Navigate to Settings > Applications > Location and search for new location
Enter in your pin or password to enter the Fit2quet app, and then choose your fitness trackers to link. You will be able to see and navigate your alerts on both apps so you can take action.
This is extremely helpful as it does let you track your activity without having to worry about having your phone nearby. It also allows you to look at yourself as a whole picture of how you are doing, which is great for self-confidence.
Having this app linked gives you full control over your tracking. You can add workouts, edit tracking settings, and see updates on yourself and how they are working.
Confirm your location and check the accuracy
When your device has GPS, you can confirm your location by pressing and holding the GPS button on your device for a few seconds. The device will display its current location and nearby locations can be seen as blue circles.
If you have devices with no GPS, you can use Bluetooth to connect your device to another device. Then, use a splitter cable or the Gear Fit 2onde app to verify your location.
To check the accuracy of your location, go online and look for nearby devices that have placed you in the right place. If one is very far away, you may need to go back up to the accurate unit to make it agree on where you are.
You can also use a positioning beacon (p Beacon). These are designed to pinpoint your exact location and send it out via radio transmission.
Restart your Gear Fit 2
If your device gets stuck in a mode where it cannot turn on or off, restart your device by pressing and holding the power button for at least five seconds then releasing.
This will force a complete start-up of your device. You can then go back to using your app and messages as soon as you connect your phone or tablet to your computer via the USB cable.
If this does not work, you can try turning off and on the device several times. If that does not work, you can reach local support through the Gear Fit 2 app. You can then use the editor’s above to help guide you through creating an account with them.
Make sure you have a good view of the sky
If you are going to track your fitness progress, make sure you are paying attention to the weather conditions. You can use the GPS app to determine if the sky is cloudy or bright enough to track the weather.
Many users report successful tracking during the winter due to this feature. If you are not enjoying this feature, try turning it off for next season!
Using a fit data analysis tool such as Garmin Connect, you can look up locations and times at any time. Some even have web interfaces for reviewing your tracking at anytime via their website or mobile app.
You can also create charts of places vs time vs symptoms vs fitness goals, which can help show what areas of your health need improvement.
