(Pocket-lint) - It's official, Samsung has unveiled its Gear Fit2 band now packing GPS and a new earbud tracking system called IconX.

The Gear Fit2 uses the Super AMOLED curved display that its predecessor was famed for. But now the sports capabilities have been enhanced with GPS added to heart rate monitoring. It will also work as a stand alone music player with 4GB storage meaning you can do a fully tracked workout with music, minus your phone.

You won't even have to tell it you're training as the Auto Activity Tracking feature will do it all for you weather you're running, cycling or even rowing.

The Gear IconX is a set of completely wireless earbuds which automatically activate when placed in the ears. By activate we don't just mean play music over Bluetooth, these track activity and monitor heart rate too. Thanks to motion sensors the IconX buds track distance, speed, duration, calories and even heart rate.
