Samsung Gear Fit arrives at the iFixit team tool shop
The iFixit team has been looming over the latest offerings by Samsung which include both the smartphone and the wearable. However, so far the Gear fit has made its way to their tool shop and this brings out a couple of points which might have been hidden in there somewhere.
As it appears, the Gear fit can very easily be removed from its wristband and all this needs is a little push. This is what the wristband makers are going to love because this means that they can offer a number of options for the wristbands. Everything has been housed on to the main chip and this is something we had already expected considering how small the device is. Only the display, battery and shell are the standalone parts.
The 32-bit 180MHz ARM Cortex CPU snuggles against the 16MB of flash memory and the most interesting part is the Broadcom dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS chip which packs the FM receiver on it. The score received by the Gear fit by the iFixit team is 6 out of 10 for repairability which is not so good but still acceptable. If you are a pro at using tools, you can also change the batteries without having to go to a Samsung service representative.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
