3. Reviews and Opinion

The updated version of Samsung’s athletic smartwatch features a digital bezel and some additional features. The Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 40mm’s resembles its predecessor. The Active 2 maintains the thinner, more basic, and modern design of its predecessor. It has girthy form and is ‘more masculine’. It’s sufficiently small to wane a run and has enough features and capabilities to compete with the Apple Watch 6. The Active 2’s added features, though, come at a price — it’s slightly dearer than its predecessor, reducing the watch’s affordability advantage over Apple watches.

The Samsung Galaxy Active 2 smartwatch 40mm is also available in a very stainless-steel LTE form, which is obtainable via Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. You’ll buy this version outright within the UK and Australia for £399 / AU$749 for the 40mm version. Its £419 / AU$799 for the 44mm version. The spotlight has shifted to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series making it hard to find it but on the positive side, after you do find it, it’s always drastically discounted.

The basic Watch Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 silver has an aluminum body, similar to the first Active. It’s available in cloud silver, aqua black, and pink gold. For a premium price, you’ll be able to purchase it in stainless-steel (which is what the LTE variant comes in), which comes in silver, black, and gold. The more cost-effective variant comes with a rubberized Fluoroelastomer band, which you’ll remember if you have ever had an Apple Watch. The fabric remains comfortable through casual and sweaty activities and can be worn all day (and beyond).

You can choose the heavier (by roughly 11g) stainless-steel body with a leather strap for a more elegant look and feel. You’ll be able to also use any Samsung-sold or aftermarket 20mm band if you wish.

In either case, the Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 black’s back features an eight-photodiode pulse monitor, which is twice as many as its predecessor.The cloud silver’s 360 x 360 resolution Super AMOLED screen has increased to 1.2 inches for the smaller 40mm model, leading to less bezel now around. The larger 44mm model features a 1.4-inch screen with the identical resolution. The 2 side buttons are identical as before: a ‘back’ button on top that’s now highlighted in some case colors, and a ‘home’ button below that brings up your apps. While double-tapping the latter, it by default pulls up Samsung’s smart assistant Bixby. You can (and should) change it to something more helpful, like a shortcut to a frequent favorite.

The Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 specs features the same Exynos 9110 dual-core CPU as its predecessor. As a matter of fact, the original Galaxy Watch is fast with 1.15GHz. The Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 lte 40mm smartwatch’s 768MB of RAM is sufficient for toggling between apps, though the LTE model’s RAM is increased to 1.5 GB.  That’s enough to zoom around the UI, though we still wish Samsung had been able to cram more than 4GB of storage in there. Then you’re only left with 1.5GB after the operating system and base programs have been loaded. There’s enough space in the Samsung Galaxy watch Active 2 40 mm for a lot of songs and apps (most of which are only a few megabytes each), but not much room for bigger, bolder software.

The Active 2 is based on Samsung’s One UI overlay on top of Samsung’s tried-and-true Tizen operating system, and it bears little resemblance to the original Active. The rotating dial makes sifting through apps on your home page or notifications on the primary ‘watch face’ screen substantially easier. Precision navigating will take some getting used to (i.e. not zooming past the right stop).

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is water resistant to IP68 standards, meaning it can withstand being submerged in fluids for up to 5 meters. There’s even a ‘water lock’ option that turns off the touchscreen and vibrates to push out any excess water. The watch also contains an ECG (electrocardiogram) function, which may be used to detect your heart’s electrical activity and rhythm. It’s a capability that’s currently available on Apple Watch models 4 and up, and it can be used to diagnose conditions like atrial fibrillation.
