Samsung has announced a new partnership with Under Armour that will see the mobile technology company’s wearable devices and smartwatches support Under Armour fitness apps.
The partnership which was announced during the CES 2017 will see all of the four apps – UA Record, MyFitnessPal, MapMyRun and Endomondo that are part of under Armour’s Connected Fitness suite work in tandem with Samsung Gear Fit2, Gear S2, and Gear S3 products.
This, according to the two companies will provide fitness enthusiasts with a seamless and convenient sports experience, as well as access to Under Amour’s digital community.
Whether users are tracking nutrition, daily workouts, running routes or simply seeking a digital personal trainer for added motivation, the companies say this best-in-class collaboration will keep users on top of their personal goals.
Samsung Gear Fit2 customers will have access to the UA Record, MapMyRun, and MyFitnessPal apps starting January 4, 2017, and the Endomondo app will also be available for Gear Fit2 in January. Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S3 customers will also be able to download the suite of apps in early 2017 with complete features.
