Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Gains LTE, Touch Bezel, New Sizes
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.
