MWC 2014: Samsung unveils Galaxy Fit, 'world's first' curved wearable

Shortly after unveiling its Galaxy 5 handset at MWC 2014 in Barcelona on Monday evening, the South Korean-based tech giant showcased its new fitness tracking wearable: the Galaxy Fit.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit looks a lot like a Nike+ FuelBand, but as well as tracking steps with a built-in pedometer and monitoring heart rate and sleep it also notifies the wearer of notifications on their smartphone – presumably Samsung wanted to find that sweet spot between a fitness tracking wearable and a smartwatch.

The device stands out because it also touts a mini curved display with a 1.84″ 432X128 Super AMOLED display.

Just like the Samsung Galaxy 5 handset, the Galaxy Fit is expected to be available from April, although no pricing details have been revealed yet.
