What was Samsung Thinking with the Release of the Samsung Galaxy Fit3?

The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 is what you get when an Apple Watch dates a Samsung Galaxy Watch, and neither of them is bothered with contraception.

With a 1.6-inch AMOLED screen, the band (or tracker) as devices like this one are categorised – is a cross between a watch (but too small to be one) and a tracker or band (too large to be one).
