Forget about the pricey Apple Watch. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 is the new sleek kid on the block. In any case, square/rectangle face smartwatch is so passé, don’t you think? Available two case sizes: 44 mm and 40 mm and two styles: lightweight aluminum with a casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) Band and premium solid stainless steel paired to a leather strap, the new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 is powered by a Exynos 9110 dual core 1.15 GHz chip, backed by up to 1.5 GB RAM and 4 GB onboard storage.
Like so many smartwatch out there, it has a customizable dial face, but Galaxy Watch Active2 stands out as one that can, with the help of My Style color extraction algorithm in the Galaxy Wearable app, recommend the color scheme based on your outfit of the day. Just snap a photo of your outfit, select from the five different color patterns, and watch your watch face change to compliment your outfit in a jiffy. Fancy stuff.
Anywho, this being an active smartwatch, it can do the usual stuff like track workouts (manually as well as automatically for select activities), control your cameras on your Galaxy smartphone, (even browsing the capture photo or video recorded), make payment, navigate and check weather, and of course, pushed notifications. In addition, it can track real-time stress levels, offers guided meditation programs, and monitor and analyze your sleep.
Other highlights include the new bidirectional rotating touch bezel, a 1.2-inch or 1.4-inch curved Super AMOLED screen with 360 x 360 resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass DX+, upgraded One UI, 20 mm interchangeable strap, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi b/g/n, NFC, A-GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, LTE connectivity on LTE models, wireless charging, 5 ATM water resistant, IP68 rating, MIL-STD-810G, and a bunch of sensors, including 8 photodiodes for heart rate monitoring, Electrocardiogram and more.
