Days before the highly anticipated Unpacked 2019 event, Samsung has announced the launch of Galaxy Watch Active2, a smartwatch with a focus on customizable UI and a strong focus on wellness integration.
The first Galaxy Watch Active launched in March but lacked a rotating bezel, one of the staple features Samsung's watches have been applauded for. A sleek curved screen with reduced bezel thickness and refined back cover is created to bring higher sensitivity for better wellness.
Among the features is a rotating digital dial, in the form of a black touch-sensitive strip around the edges of the circular display, allowing users to navigate around the device with greater ease. Snap a photo of yourself with a phone, then the app will suggest a range of stylish strap options and personalized watch faces, based on a color extraction algorithm. This one, though, is digital, which makes it more convenient to use and also provides for a larger screen size.
As for its fitness features, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 "can manually track more than 39 workouts with seven of them automatically activated - including running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine and dynamic workout".

Iran 'seizes Iraqi tanker' in troubled Gulf waters
But Iranian officials have complained that the three European countries have failed to mitigate the effects of the USA sanctions. Another oil tanker, the Panama-flagged MT Riah, was captured by the elite force last month for allegedly smuggling fuel.
The Galaxy Watch Active2 does also offer a 4G model, which allows you to use your watch to receive calls, messages, and data away from your smartphone. (The 40mm is ever-so-slightly larger than the current Watch Active.) Both sizes are available in a light aluminum case by default, but you can upgrade to a heftier stainless steel (with a leather band) for a small upcharge. The Galaxy Watch Active2 also supports wireless charging, just like its predecessor.
For the Active2, Samsung has doubled the amount of photodiodes to eight, which, in theory, enables faster and more precise heart rate monitoring.
You can pre-order the Galaxy Watch Active2 starting September 6th in advance of the September 27th release date. Samsung may be getting ready to unveil an updated Galaxy Fold... but would you buy one following the fiasco? The LTE versions will likely be more expensive, but we don't have specifics right now.
