The Galaxy Watch Active can still be considered hot news, at it has just been launched this year along with Samsung’s Galaxy S10 models. However, the company believes the smartwatch could use some improvements, and Samsung is launching the Galaxy Watch Active 2, before the release of the Galaxy Note 10.
The Galaxy Watch Active marked the abolishment of a common feature for smartwatches: the rotating bezel used to scroll through the menu. The mechanical ring has now been replaced with a digital one, which is featured in the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
Now, let’s discuss the improvements of the second generation of Samsung Active smartwatches. First of all, the display got an upgrade and went from a small 1.1-inch AMOLED panel to a 1.2 or 1.4-inch rounded display with thinner bezels.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2.0 will be available in two variants, an aluminum one and a stainless steel one. The material creates a difference in price of $100. Even more, the stainless steel variant will also be available with LTE, for an additional amount of $50.
