Samsung releases Galaxy Watch Active2 with rotating bezel and LTE

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Cameras

As usual, Samsung will be launching its latest Galaxy Note device in August.

We haven't spent a tremendous amount of time with Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active2, but the few minutes we had with it was interesting.

Those watches were made for bigger wrists, though, and so when Samsung released the Galaxy Active earlier this year, it was a curiously slim take on Samsung's watches. Additionally, it was also stated that the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will be available in three models including an LTE version.

Though Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Watch Active 2 is not the flagship of the company's smart watch portfolio, the device has enough tech to compete with Apple's latest and most advanced Apple Watch. The bezels of the watch are now touch-sensitive, allowing you to use it as a rotating bezel and navigate around the operating system on the watch. The first Galaxy Watch Active is still on sale and costs £229 / $199. We lamented the absence of it in the original because it meant the Tizen OS that is created to be navigated in dials and circles was less easy to get around than other Samsung smartwatches with the bezel.

The New Galaxy Watch Active2 comes in different colors and finishes.

Boston Celtics rumors: National Basketball Association 2019 Christmas schedule includes Toronto Raptors vs. Celtics
But according to Shams Charania of The Athletic , the league is expected to go in a slightly different direction this year. Toronto will be entering this season without superstar forward Kawhi Leonard after losing him in free agency.

"For the 44mm model, it features a 1.4" 360×360 Super AMOLED display while the 40mm version gets a similar Super AMOLED display with a smaller 1.2" screen that also comes with the same 360×360 resolution. Google Translate requires an Internet connection and the translations aren't done on device, confirmed Samsung. It will definitely be water and dust-proof to some extent, but we can't exactly say how much.

Short as my time with the Galaxy Watch Active 2 was, I really liked what I saw. Pricing starts at $279.99 for the 40mm and $299.99 for the 44mm.

The built-in heart rate monitor also detects falls, gives ECG readouts, and monitors sleep.

One thing's for sure, the Galaxy Active could survive an apocalypse with that rugged design. You can sync Spotify playlists offline, play YouTube videos on the watch display (but why would you do that?) and more. If you love matching your outfits, the smartwatch comes with a feature called "My Style" where you can customize your watch display based on your outfits by taking a photo with your smartphone. It will be available for purchase from September 27.
