Yesterday Samsung announced both the Galaxy Note 10 and the Note 10+. In addition, the company paid attention to the Galaxy Watch Active 2, a new sports smartwatch. Two sizes have been announced, a 40 mm and a 44 mm version that incorporate a 1.2-inch and a 1.4-inch curved Super AMOLED display respectively. The new smartwatches can be purchased from 13 September for a starting price of € 300.
Samsung smartwatch with digital rotating bezel
An important addition is the rotating touch bezel. Previously, Samsung smartwatches were already equipped with a rotatable bezel, but this was omitted from the Galaxy Watch Active. Now the bezel returns in a digital form. The rotating touch screen contributes to an intuitive operation.
The new wearable is well capable of setting health goals. The smartwatch can automatically recognize seven different types of training, from running or walking to cycling, swimming or rowing. Are you going for a run? Then you can follow your running pace in real time. Super handy of course. A total of 39 types of training can be tracked manually.
Samsung’s newest smartwatch is also capable of monitoring you during your sleep. In addition, you can monitor your stress level in real time via Samsung Health. The Watch Active 2 also features a built-in heart rate sensor.
The intelligent watch can easily be connected to a Galaxy smartphone or tablet. This allows you to take photos with your phone via your smartwatch, among other things. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is also water resistant and comes with Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi and NFC support.
