Just because summer is almost over doesn’t mean you need to break your fitness goals. Stick to your routine with the help of brand new Samsung wearables, including the Gear Fit2 Pro for tracking your swims.

The standout wearable in the bunch is the Gear Sport, which is half smartwatch and half activity tracker. It features a sleek, modern design, 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display, and what Samsung claims is an improved interface. It also features “military level durability,” making it the perfect bridge between going out and getting fit.

Next up is the Gear Fit2 Pro, which features built-in GPS tracking, a curved 1.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and a band Samsung says is extra secure. Both the Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Sport feature water resistance and swim tracking, heart rate monitoring, and integration with Under Armour and Spotify apps.

“At Samsung, we celebrate the everyday athlete—whether you’re going for a light job, or training for your next triathlon,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “We have a long history of embracing choice and innovation, and our wearables are designed to help consumers of varying fitness levels meet their goals and aspirations.”

The final product in Samsung’s new fitness lineup is the Gear IconX, a pair of cord-free earbuds that feature Bixby integration. Samsung says the design has been updated to be even more ergonomic and lightweight than the previous Gear Icon model, making them great for runs and other physical activities.

According to Samsung, the Gear IconX will have a battery life up to six hours and 4GB of internal storage, so you don’t even need your phone to listen to your favorite music.

Samsung didn’t provide pricing or availability for the Gear Sport or Gear IconX, but did say the Gear Fit2 Pro will be available for preorder starting today for $199. Shipments are expected to go out beginning September 15.
