Created with a haptic touch bezel for quick and effortless, finger-friendly control, Samsung’s stylish, waterproof and comfortable to wear Galaxy Watch Active2 smart watch, with an (optional) always on, Super AMOLED display, on board HR monitoring, GPS, helpful coaching workout advice and a larger battery than the previous model, can help track your way to wellness.
Look the part
Take a photo of your outfit (using your compatible phone) and the Galaxy Watch Active2 will provide various watch face options for you – using the colours you’re wearing, so you always look on-trend.
Ready when you are
There’s no need to fiddle with apps or settings, the Galaxy Watch Active2 with built-in GPS will automatically store your every walk, run, cycle or swim – cleverly recognising when you’re working out. You’re able to set daily goals and track your progress, aiding you to hit your targets.
Real-time Running Coach
Thanks to multiple sensors analysing real-time data, the Galaxy Watch Active2 can guide you with relevant coaching workout advice. The wrist-based, real-time Running Coach allows you to set a target and then prompts you to keep on track. There’s a range of pre-set pace programs for all fitness levels, to aid you to walk, jog or sprint your way to your next goal.
For those who prefer to workout using gym exercise machines, the Galaxy Watch Active2 has the useful ability to connect directly with the latest gym equipment (please check with your gym regarding compatibility). Use the watch to activate your saved profile on your preferred apparatus – and finally leave your phone in your locker.
PowerShare / reverse charging
Most top-end smart phones are PowerShare / reverse charging enabled these days (meaning the phone itself can charge up other devices, such as wireless headphones or smart watches). Just place the Galaxy Watch Active2 on the back of your compatible phone to refuel if you ever require a cheeky top up when you’re out and about – and get ready to look out for some rather envious faces.
When you’re home, just lay the Galaxy Watch Active2 on the included magnetic wireless charger to return it to full power – handily, there are no charging jacks or wires required.
Now with eight photodiodes on its rear side that sit comfortably on your wrist – thanks to the watch’s updated curved design, Galaxy Watch Active2’s health monitoring will keep an eye on your heart rate (HR) and send you an alert when it goes above or below normal levels. Additionally, it can notify you if your stress levels are too high (the Galaxy Watch Active2 will recommend some breathing exercises to help).
Thanks to sleep monitoring technology, the Galaxy Watch Active2 is able to monitor your sleep and then provide a rundown of just how deeply you slept when you finally rise.
In the fast lane
As splash and water resistant as some new mobile phones might be, we wouldn’t advise anyone to go swimming with them at the moment (there’s a huge difference between gently submerging a device in pure water in the lab, and the chemicals, pressures and forces involved when swimming). The Galaxy Watch Active2 is waterproof to 5 ATM, so there’s no need to worry – it’s great for tracking your pool-based training sessions – which it will automatically detect for you.
There are loads of apps available for the Galaxy Watch Active2 from calculators to music to health to sat nav – ensuring every part of your day is covered.
Tap and pay
Leave your credit card at home and use your Galaxy Watch Active2 and Samsung Pay instead. Just register your credit card and you’re good to go – just tap and pay as usual.
What’s the difference between Bluetooth and 4G cellular?
Some smart watches with Bluetooth, such as the Galaxy Watch Active2, can let you send and receive text messages, answer telephone calls and receive notifications when it’s connected to your (compatible) phone via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Bluetooth + 4G Cellular
The Galaxy Watch Active2 4G has all the same great features as the above, as well as built-in cellular. It gives you the freedom to send and receive text messages, answer phone calls and even receive notifications when you don’t have your phone with you.
Cellular Carrier Support
Connecting your Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 4G Cellular to a cellular network requires the same carrier as your (compatible) phone.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
