Gadget review: Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 smartwatch

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 smartwatch is a state-of-the-art device with 2-day battery life and attractive design. It is a bit pricey and has very few third-party apps.

With minor upgrade on its predecessor, the Galaxy Active 2 watch comes with a digital rotating dial and bigger screen as well.

It has retained the modern look and slimmer design of its predecessor. It comes with a broadly-appealing setup and masculine style of traditional watches.

The watch is priced at $279.99 for the basic 40mm model in the US. Its 44mm variant comes at $299. It was released on September 27.

In UK the Active 2 is priced tagged at pound 269 and pound 289 for the two models respectively. It will be hitting the stores on October 3.

People in Australia need to wait till October 8 to get the smartwatch. The 44mm variant is priced tagged at AU$549 there. The people won’t get the 400mm version.

The smartphone will be made available in an LTE model too in the US and is to be offered through US Cellular, Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint.

Meanwhile, the Apple Watch 3 is now being sold at a discounted price to offer smartwatch to those who are not able to match up the high cost of Active 2.
