Samsung has just announced the latest device that joins its growing roster in their Galaxy smartwatch series – the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 helps users live a better life by tracking things like sleep, fitness, and even stress management. Whether you want to take time to meditate, be notified of every update, or fall somewhere in between, the latest Galaxy smartwatch complements your lifestyle.

The second iteration of the Watch Active comes in two different sizes – 44mm and 40mm in diameter as well as two styles: lightweight aluminum and a more casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) band, and premium solid stainless steel with a leather strap. The smartwatches can be personalized with a range of additional stylish straps and watch-face options.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 features an upgrade to the rotating bezel, which is now on the Super AMOLED screen. The digital rotating bezel turns both clockwise and counter-clockwise to advance screens to easily select favorite apps. This not only makes it convenient but also maximizes the screen size.

In addition, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 can now be used to customize match to your outfit with My Style color extraction algorithm. Available in the Galaxy Wearable app, take a photo of your outfit, choose from five color patterns, and the watch changes in seconds.

The smartwatch also serves as your guide to improved health and wellness. It provides insights that can help you make positive lifestyle choices in your diet, exercise, mental health, sleep, and more.

It 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. The smartwatch also has an updated Running Coach than monitors your running pace in real-time and has seven different running programs. It incorporates new health sensor on the back which takes in readings faster.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 allows you to make and receive calls freely from the watch, while social media views are accessible with just a tap of the finger, and offer more interaction with your content on these platforms. Now you can respond to or like a tweet, and even watch a short video clip or movie trailer right from the watch. It also supports convenient real-time voice and text translation in over 16 languages.

As part of the Galaxy family, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 brings some of the features of the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem to the smartwatch. When the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is paired to your Galaxy smartphone, the Watch Camera Controller on the smartwatch allows you to take photos, record videos, preview footage on the watch, switch between the front and rear lenses, set a timer, and check the final photo or video.

The Aluminum version of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes in Cloud Silver, Aqua Black, and Pink Gold. While the Stainless steel version comes in Cloud Silver.
