Samsung introduces ECG and digital rotating bezel on the Galaxy Watch Active 2

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2.

Almost six months after announcing the Galaxy Watch Active, Samsung today unveiled its successor, the Galaxy Watch Active 2. 

Available in two sizes (40mm and 44mm), the Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes with a digital rotating bezel which you can turn both clockwise and counter-clockwise to navigate. The black bezel that surrounds the Super AMOLED display is actually a touch-sensitive strip that you can run your finger over and it gives a click-like haptic buzz to simulate the clicks of the physical rotating bezel. 

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 can manually track more than 39 workouts with 7 of them automatically activated (running, walking ,cycling, swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine and dynamic workouts). It also has an updated Running Coach feature to monitor your running pace in real-time and offer 7 different training programs. While it comes with ECG capability, the feature will not be available at launch.

Under the screen, Samsung’s Exynos 9110 dual-core 1.15GHz chipset runs the Watch Active 2 and is augmented by 768MB RAM (Bluetooth model) / 1.5GB RAM (LTE model), and is supported by 4GB of internal storage. These specs apply for both watch sizes:-

  44mm 40mm
Display 1.4-inch (320 x 320 pixels)      Always On Display 1.2-inch (320 x 320 pixels) Always On Display
Glass Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ Corning Gorilla Glass DX+
Battery 340mAh 247mAh

Other specs include an aluminium case for the Bluetooth-only model, stainless steel for the LTE model, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and 5ATM water resistance rating – which means the watch is water-resistant to up to 50 meters in depth for 10 minutes.

Powered by Tizen OS, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is compatible with Android devices running 5.0 or higher with at least 1.5GB RAM, and iPhone 5 or above with iOS 9 or later versions. Local pricing and availability have yet to be announced at the time of publication.
