Samsung Electronics will showcase the Galaxy Gear Fit equipped with a flexible display as a trick up the sleeve during the Unpack event on the eve of the Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain, Monday.

The new health checkup device will be presented together with the premium smartphone “Galaxy S5,” the world’s top smartphone maker’s flagship product for this year, and the “Galaxy Gear 2,” the successor to the “Galaxy Gear,” said sources in the electronics sector Friday. The Galaxy Gear Fit replaced a camera with a sensor, embedding functions of pedometer and monitoring users’ sleeping. The Galaxy Gear Fit also allows users to share on the social network how much they exercised and compete with others to make the experience more fun.

The Galaxy Gear Fit, whose price has yet to be determined, is forecast to be released along with the Galaxy S5 in April. Samsung Electronics expects the wearable health care device to be the best among the existing wearable gadgets. The Samsung’s device is believed to have stepped up the healthcare checkup function from the Nike’s “Fuel Band,” and significantly boosted specifications from another similar product “Fitbit Flex.”
