According to VentureBeat Samsung will reveal more than just the Galaxy Note8 at its 23 August event-- also waiting in the wings is the Gear Fit2 Pro, the 3rd fitness tracker from the Korean giant.

Gear Fit2 ProIn a confusing take on naming conventions, the Gear Fit2 Pro is actually the sequel to the Gear Fit2. It features a similar tall, curved display and a bevy of upgrades, including what a more powerful processor and 5 ATM water resistance. This allows users to fully submerge the band in water, allowing the tracking of swimming workouts via Speedo On app (in comparison, the Gear Fit2 is IP-68 certified, and is not submersible).

VentureBeat adds the band supports offline Spotify tracks, carries GPS functionality, is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and includes a one year subscription to premium Under Armour digital services. If the leaked images are to be believed the wearable device also has a watch-style clasp, unlike the snap clasp of the regular Fit2.

We should learn more about the Gear Fit2 Pro once it is revealed at the aforementioned Samsung event.
