KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 8 (Bernama) -- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Samsung) has unveiled the Galaxy Watch Active2 smartwatch, the newest addition to the Galaxy smartwatch portfolio.

As part of the Galaxy family, Galaxy Watch Active2 is purposefully designed with new, intuitive, and refined features to bring more customization to consumers’ personal lifestyles, enhance their health and wellness as well as enable seamless, connected living.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 lets users live better through small, yet meaningful, daily changes—from reaching wellness goals such as sleep, fitness, and stress management to completing tasks efficiently, said Samsung in a statement, released here. 

"With Galaxy Watch Active2, we have created a device that will enable consumers to take control of their health and wellness, and seamlessly flow between their devices and connect across the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem, making their lives easier and better,” said the president and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh. 

The Galaxy Watch Active2 comes in two different sizes - 44mm and 40mm in diameter - and two styles: lightweight aluminium with a casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) Band, and premium solid stainless steel with a leather strap. 

The smartwatches can be personalized with a range of additional stylish strap and watch-face options.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 features a brand new upgrade to our signature rotating bezel - and turns it digital to make it even more convenient to navigate while maximizing the screen size. 

"Now directly on the beautifully curved Super AMOLED screen, the rotating touch bezel turns both clockwise and counter-clockwise to advance screens so users can easily select favourite apps. Plus, the upgraded One UI offers a simple, clear and natural user experience for navigation," it said.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 also serves as the guide to improved health and wellness, providing actionable insights that can help users make positive lifestyle choices in their diet, exercise, mental health, sleep and more. 

With exercise, for example, the smartwatch can manually track more than 39 workouts with seven of them automatically activated - including running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine and dynamic workouts. 

As part of the Galaxy family, the Galaxy Watch Active2 brings the best of Samsung’s Galaxy ecosystem to the smartwatch for those who want to do it all.
