The main difference between these two smartbands come in the different display, the number of available sport modes, and the presence of quick reply on Galaxy Fit 2.

Starting with the design, Galaxy Fit 2 has a more attractive and decent design than Inspire HR, and its AMOLED display is also more colorful and attractive than the grayscale OLED of Inspire HR. Moreover, Galaxy Fit 2 offers 90 preset sports modes which is far more than 20 on Inspire HR. You also can reply to notifications received on Galaxy Fit 2 with preset quick replies which isn’t possible with Inspire HR, and with up to 15 days long battery in typical usage, Galaxy Fit 2 has a far longer battery life than Inspire HR that has about 5 days long battery life.

In other words, Galaxy Fit 2 is a more complete smartband than Inspire HR, yet slightly cheaper, it’s a better bargain.

Meanwhile, each of these two smartbands does about the same thing which is to track your daily activities, alert you when you receive a notification, and have long battery life.
