After the release of Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch in 2015, rumors about a possible wearable gadget to track activities surfaced. However, a bunch of impressive live photos show the stunning device from every angle.
Samsung’s upcoming fitness and activity tracker is internally referred as “Triathlon.” The original name of this device is unknown, however, it’s tied to the model number SM-R150.
The exclusive images sourced by Sam Mobile via the tipster @esse1000k (Tizen Cafe) points to a gadget identical to the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch from outside. To be specific, it resembles the “Sport” variant more than the other models.
The SM-R150 comes with the same circular display, complete with rotating bezel. It’s being speculated that this tracker could be based on Samsung’s new Bio-Processor chipset.
The Bio-Processor is an all-in-one advanced system logic chip specific to health and fitness gadgets. This chip is apparently “industry’s first all-in-one health solution chip.”
The midget-like silicon consists of an integrated Analog Front Ends (AFE), microcontroller unit (MCU), power management integrated circuit (PMIC), digital signal processor (DSP) and eFlash memory -- so as to keep track and process the bio-signals it captured “without the need of external processing parts.”
As far as the specifications go, this device apparently features a heart-rate monitor. It can also count repetitions in a workout and can monitor body fat measurement. Surprisingly, it can monitor the water intake as well. To top it all off, this gadget’s dial can be separated from the strap and attached to user’s chest with the help of an accessory as seen in the image below.
Speaking of price, Sam Mobile says, if this activity tracker does not pack all the features housed in the Gear S2 smartwatch, it might be inexpensive much like the counterparts from Fitbit, Garmin, Nike and others.
