the new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
It’s the latest smart watch from Samsung and it actually joins the Galaxy Watch Active that was released earlier this year. Samsung is going to be selling both of these which w’ve got a LTE version and a bluetooth version at the same time so you can kind of choose between them. it comes in two sizes, there’s a 40 millimeter and a 44 millimeter, It’s available in both Bluetooth and LTE versions. The LTE model is stainless steel and then this a Bluetooth model that’s aluminum. You’ll be able to get it in a bunch of different colors black, silver, gold, what Samsung’s calling lily gold and of course there’s a bunch of different strap options. These are the standard pin strap there, so first we got a leather one, then there’s the rubber ones , there’s be a whole bunch of different options there. They’ve kinda made it a nicer feeling watch than the Galaxy Watch Active.
It’s definitely a lower end model and it feels it when you use it. Everything is a little bit nicer especially the stainless steel model. it’s just a nicer build quality, It’s still really thin, It’s still really light, It still has a nice bright LED screen on the wrist, there so it’s easy to read indoors and outdoors. The biggest thing that they’ve done is they’ve brought back the rotating bezel. Now it not an actual physical rotating thing like on some of the other Galaxy Watch models that we’ve seen in the past. It’s a touch sensitive stripe that you run your finger across and you can scroll through screens, you can scroll through text, notifications, apps.

There is better Bixby support now so you can activate a workout with Bixby and it can do a paste workout for you, which is new. It can control smart things gadgets. It has a Spotify integration built into it including offline Spotify playback, which is super useful. And it has a new ability to watch YouTube videos. There’s an actual YouTube app that Samsung built for this so you can watch YouTube videos on your wrist. Truly do not know why you’d ever want to do this but it’s there if you want it. So in terms of battery life, Samsung says the LTE model, in 40 millimeter should get a day and a half, 44 millimeter should get you two days of battery life.
So these are not super long lasting things like a Fitbit. It is much closer to a standard smart watch in terms of battery life. Another thing that’s new for this model is the ability to match a watch face to your outfit. You can actually take a picture with the app on your phone and it will then process what your wearing and create a watch face out of it. So you can have a constantly different personalized watch face that nobody else has right there on your watch
every single day if you wanted to which is kind of a neat feature. So there you go that the look at the Samsun Galaxy Watch Active 2. Now it’s going to be available at the end of September. On September 27th it’s the Bluetooth models going to be available first.
