Samsung is strengthening the ecosystem for its Gear devices by partnering with companies to bring exclusive content. The latest collaboration is with sports apparel brand Under Armour (UA).

The collaboration will involve UA developing four health and fitness apps - UA Record, MyFitnessPal, MapMyRun and Endomondo - for the Samsung Gear Fit2, Gear S2 and Gear S3. The suite of apps will help Gear users track nutrition, daily workouts, running routes and other data. Here are some unique features for Samsung Gear devices:

  • UA Record - map and route display, untethered GPS tracking 
  • MyFitnessPal - water consumption logging, quick-add calories 
  • MapMyRun - challenges, untethered tracking 
  • Endomondo - challenges 

Gear Fit2 users can have access to UA Record, MyFitnessPal and MapMyRun from today while the Endomondo app will be available later this month. As for the Gear S2 and Gear S3 devices, the suite of apps will be available for download in early 2017.

UA also partnered with HTC last year to develop the UA Healthbox, which is a system designed to provide fitness junkies a well-rounded fitness tracking experience with various tools.
