Reviews of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 cell phone and Gear Fit wristwear unveiled at Mobile World Congress are starting to hit. The Wall Street Journal’s got a pretty good write-up of the Fit, which is admiring but mixed. Its major points:
- Battery life is disappointing: two days with notifications on, four with them off.
- Interface is good
- Device is pretty and comfortable
- Companion cell phone software needs work
- Counts more steps than the (recalled) Fitbit Force; in our tests, Fitbit devices count more than the Nike FuelBand.
