Samsung today announced the Galaxy Watch Active2, an update to the Galaxy Watch Active that brings new features and options. The edges of the screen now function as a touch-based "rotating" bezel to navigate menus faster. The AMOLED screen has also been enlarged, from 1.1 inches to 1.2 inches, in the same 40mm body. There's also a new larger version, with a 1.4-inch display in a 44mm case. Both sizes are available in either stainless steel with a leather strap, or aluminum with a fluoroelastomer band. A version is also available with 4G LTE built in, which offers voice calling, social media apps, Spotify, and real-time voice and text translation in over 16 languages. New health sensors on the back take readings faster. The watch has built-in tracking for 39 different workouts, seven of which are detected and activated automatically, including running, walking, cycling, and swimming. The Galaxy Watch Active2 also includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, NFC for payments, heart rate sensor, ECG, and wireless charging. The small size starts at $280, while the large size will start at $300. Pricing was not announced for the LTE version, but all four major US carriers will offer it. All versions will go on sale September 27th. Pre-orders start September 6th, and customers pre-ordering on samsung.com are eligible for a free Wireless Charger Portable Battery.
