Samsung has launched a new promotion that offers customers a free Gear Fit2 fitness band when they purchase a new Galaxy S7 edge smartphone. The deal is available in the UK until 28 February at participating networks and retailers, including Synergy Mobile.

The offer is valid for all S7 edge smartphones purchased either online or in stores and also covers phones bought on contract.

To receive their free Gear Fit2, customers must visit Samsung’s website, complete the online claim form ( within 60 days of making their purchase and upload the serial number of their new phone and their proof of purchase.

Participating customers will receive an SMS or email confirmation 30 days after submitting a claim and will then receive their Gear Fitt2 via next-day delivery if they have a UK mainland address or by two-to-four-day delivery service if they have a non-mainland address.

The Gear Fit2, which normally retails for £179, functions as both a smartwatch and a fitness tracker. The device notifies wearers of their incoming emails, phone calls and text messages, and the built-in GPS and heart-rate sensor record their fitness data and their activity.

In addition to recording a user’s step count and number of calories burnt, the Gear Fit2 can show distances covered, time spent on an activity and the latest run routes.

The fitness band features a 38.6mm Curved Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 216 x 432. It has 2GB of available memory.
