    When Samsung launched their new Galaxy Gear 2 series devices last month, both the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo were announced with their Tizen OS. It was assumed that their Gear Fit fitness band was also running Tizen. It turns out that was incorrect. It isn't running Tizen or Android, but will instead use a proprietary OS called RTOS (Real Time OS).

    Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Intriguing. Perhaps it makes sense to use a stripped down basic platform for something like the Gear Fit. It doesn't need to have a plethora of options to do what it was designed to do. Does it surprise and/or disappoint you that the Gear Fit doesn't include Sammy's own Tizen OS?
