Samsung Takes On Apple With Galaxy Watch Active2

Samsung Takes On Apple With Galaxy Watch Active2

The new Watch Active 2 comes in either a 40 or 44mm size, stainless or aluminium case and silicone or leather strap. Design options will vary by market, but in the United States, the heavier stainless steel body is reserved for the LTE version of the Watch Active2.

The new Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Tab S6, that were launched globally on Monday, would still take some time to arrive in India. The Apple Watch Series 4 comes in two sizes - 40mm and 44mm.

Samsung has introduced the newest addition to its smartwatch portfolio, the Galaxy Watch Active2, which Samsung says is designed with new, intuitive and refined features for greater user customisation and flexibility.

Two versions of the Galaxy Note 10 will nearly certainly appear at the event on August 7, 2019.

The 40mm Active2 has the same 247mAh battery, while the 44mm has a slightly larger 340mAh battery. Also, the Fluoroelastomer (FKM) straps that come with it are available in a wide range of shades. It is powered by the Exynos 9110 processor paired with up to 1.5GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The watch supports Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC, and LTE. LTE is only available on the stainless steel one.

Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active2, the company's most recent release in the wearable market, hits stores on September 27 at a starting price of $279 for the smaller model. That isn't exactly cheap, but it isn't as expensive as the Apple Watch Series 4 which starts at $379.


Samsung is boosting the smartwatch's fitness capabilities with an improved heart rate sensor and an additional four LEDs in the heart rate monitor.

Both can track 39 different exercises, with six of them auto-tracked, and can also track your sleep, measure your stress and vibrate on your wrist to remind you to move more. Samsung claims the Watch Active 2 battery "lasts the day and more with normal usage".

Samsung's device is compatible with both Android and iOS.

As Samsung promised that it would do today, it has publicises the Galaxy Watch Active2, its latest smartwatch.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will be up for pre-orders from September 6 and its shipments will begin from September 26.

According to some reports, the Galaxy Note 10 could cost under £960 for some versions, but those prices will climb to £1,099 for the Note 10 Plus version and even higher for other variants.
