Samsung has announced a new Galaxy Watch to release in October
Samsung today announced its latest smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active2.
Like the previous version, the Active2 is primarily focused on fitness tracking, but allows other interactions as well. New design features include a touch-sensitive, rotating bezel, and an aluminium or stainless steel body paired with a range of different straps.
There’s a lot of tech features packed into the watch, including a full suite of location sensors, an improved heartrate sensor with ECG, optional 4G e-SIM connectivity for use while unpaired from your smartphone, and a huge array of different workout tracking options.
Using the 4G version of the Active 2 while unpaired from the phone is a little better thanks to a few key apps. Spotify, for example, will work while you’re on the go, and you can make or receive calls without a paired smartphone.
The Galaxy Watch Active2 comes in either 40mm or 44mm display size, with aluminium or stainless steel casing, and starts at $549, up to $799 for the largest 4G LTE model. The local release date is set for 8th October.
