Verdict

Each of these two is sturdily built and also very lightweight which means you can wear any of these all day long without even knowing you are wearing a smartband. These two are also decent fitness trackers as any of these two will track your sleep in four stages, track your heart rate, steps, distance, and calories. And with the ability to connect to your phone GPS, you can track your routes and locations which can be viewed from the respective apps, Fitbit app for Inspire 2 and Samsung Health app for Galaxy Fit 2. Moreover, with the long battery of these two, you can go days from a single charge. In other words, each of these two is a fantastic smartband.

However, Galaxy Fit 2 is a more comprehensive smartband. It has a better and richer AMOLED display compared to grayscale OLED (monochrome) of Inspire 2. It also has more preset sport modes, 90 vs 20 of Inspire 2. And with up to 15 days long battery life, it has a longer battery life than Inspire 2. While not forgetting that Galaxy Fit 2 is cheaper.
