Editor's Rating

Looking at the design, the Galaxy Fit is slightly bigger than Fit e, this translates to a bigger display and it weighs a little more than the Fit e. No doubt, these two are some of the lightest fitness trackers you can find on the market. Still on the design, the Galaxy Fit has a bigger and richer AMOLED display that’s vivid and lively compared to the Fit e which has a PMOLED monochrome display that’s not so rich in colors, but easily legible outdoors.

The Galaxy Fit also supports touchscreen just like the Fit e but has an extra button by the side that makes navigation a little easier.

The battery capacity also differs with the Fit having a higher battery capacity, but one will expect the Galaxy Fit with a richer AMOLED display to take more power compared to the Fit e with PMOLED. Moreover, the Fit also has more software and hardware that require more power. So it’s pertinent to say that the battery life of these two is about the same just as confirm in the video review below.

The Galaxy Fit is also equipped with an NFC chip that enables Samsung Pay allowing you to make a payment directly from the device which the Fit e lacks. Moreover, you can send preset texts from the Galaxy Fit, but not on the Fit e.

Looking at the fitness tracking features, like I mentioned earlier each of these two is fitness-focused and designed to track your active life. However, the Galaxy Fit is a more comprehensive tracker, it comes with both accelerometer and gyroscope compared to the Fit e with only accelerometer. As a result, it tracks more activities and has more preloaded modes.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I’ll say the Galaxy Fit is clearly a better smartband than the Fit e. It has a better design, more features that enables it to track more activities and the display is awesome. You may also go for the Fit e, it’s cheaper and a decent activity tracker.
