Both smartbands are fantastic in their respective ways. Any of these two will track your heart rate, sleep in four stages, help you manage stress, track your steps, and count your calories. Both smartband lack inbuilt GPS which means you’ll need to carry your phone along as these two can connect to your phone GPS. One other similarity is both smartband will alert you when you receive a notification on your phone, and as well feature “find my phone”, “do not disturb”, alarm and timer.

However, while you can choose from up to 90 sport modes on Galaxy Fit 2, its only 20 preset sport modes on Inspire 2. Moreover, while there are lots of quick replies on the Galaxy Wearable app that you can choose from, Inspire 2 lacks these feature. Galaxy Fit 2 also has a richer and more colorful AMOLED display compared to the Grayscale OLED of Inspire 2. Both smartbands lack an always-on display.

Galaxy Fit 2 also has a longer battery life than Inspire 2, while it has up to 21 days long battery life, it’s about 10 days with Inspire 2.

So, for me, I’ll say Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 is a better smartband than Fitbit Inspire 2 considering its more colorful display, more sports modes, better ways to respond to messages, and a longer battery life.
