Samsung launched the Gear Fit alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5. The device came with a curved display, and was introduced as a fitness tracker which can also display notifications on the screen.
It turns out the wearable is far more popular than many expected it to be. According to a new report from Korean shores, the Gear Fit’s initial stock was sold out in just 10 days.
According to a Korean publication MK, citing unnamed industry sources, Samsung manufactured between 200,000 to 250,000 units of the Gear Fit, which were sold out in 10 days, with 25,000 units sold in South Korea. The company is reportedly increasing the production of the device in order to meet the unexpected high demand.
It was not the only smartwatch introduced by Samsung at the Mobile World Congress 2014, the Korean OEM also released Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, but the report doesn’t mention anything about the sales of the other two smartwatches.
Samsung Gear Fit comes with a much more sane $199 price tag, which many still consider a little high considering the features it has to offer to end users.
