Samsung is in the process of unveiling its new flagship Galaxy S5 alongside a new Gear Fit curved fitness wearable that will both inevitably become direct competition for the current iPhone lineup and a future iWatch product that Apple is expected to launch soon.

The big news for the 5.1-inch Galaxy S5 is the built-in fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor, while the Gear Fit wearable falls into a new product lineup of smartwatches from the company. Samsung confirmed that it will be offering mobile payments with the fingerprint scanner as well as using it as a security feature to make content in certain apps only accessible when activated by the user’s fingerprint.
