Today, Samsung, as promised, has introduced a new generation of its “smart” watches – Galaxy Watch Active 2.
There are several versions of watches to choose from, which differ in size (diameter of the dial 40 and 44 mm) and material (aluminum with a rubber strap or stainless steel with a leather strap). The 40 mm version has a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 × 360 pixels and a battery capacity of 247 mAh, the 44 mm version has a 1.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 × 360 pixels and a more capacious battery – 340 mAh .
Inside, a 2-core Exynos 9110 processor is installed along with 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. They also promise the LTE version with 1.5 GB of RAM, but most likely only in the USA.
The watch runs on the Tizen operating system. As expected, the mechanical bezel was changed to touch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 can track 39 types of workouts, including running, walking, cycling, rowing and dynamic training. There is also a heart rate sensor, ECG, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC and IP68 water protection.
Using the Samsung Health app, you can monitor stress levels and monitor sleep quality. In addition, the watch allows you to view social networks and movie trailers, translate text into 16 languages in real time, review pictures and control the smartphone’s camera (Watch Camera Controller function).
Sales start on September 27th, but pre-ordering is possible from September 6th. For the 40 mm version they ask for $ 279.99, for 44 mm – $ 299.99.
