Samsung has officially announced its new smartwatch aimed primarily at people who like sports, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. The smartwatch doesn’t seem to be much different from the previous generation. However, the new rotating touch panel function now has twice the number of sensors and improved accuracy. This new watch model has two different sizes and countless exciting new features inside.
In terms of design, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 looks like the first generation Active Watch but has a few important changes on the inside. Unlike some of Samsung’s older wearables with very handy mechanical rotation for navigating the enhanced interface, the Watch Active 2 introduces a completely new feature: a digital rotation.
The main body of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is made of either aluminum or stainless steel. In addition, it comes in two different sizes, 40mm and 44mm in diameter, with the first packing a 1.2-inch screen and the second a 1.4-inch screen. Resolutions are 360 × 360 for both sizes.
The smartwatch is powered by a chipset specially designed for wearable devices, the Exynos 9110 clocked at 1.15GHz. The other specifications vary depending on the variant. So we have the Wi-Fi version with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of storage and the LTE version with 1.5GB of RAM and 4GB of storage.
Both variants support GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, NFC, ECG, heart rate monitoring, wireless charging and are IP68 waterproof. Finally, watches run Samsung’s Tizen OS. As for pricing, the 40mm model starts at $279, while the 44mm version will be available at $299. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will be released on September 27th.
