Galaxy Watch Active 2 

Since here, you must think, Besides the screen size, battery capacity, the two watches seem all the same! There is no difference! Hey, wait, the above are not all. Due to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is a new product, it must have something different from the older one. Actually, there are TWO BIG DIFFERENCE among the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active 2, see the below:

Two big differences

1. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 installed the Touch Bezel sensor, which allows you to turn the watch operation face with a more flexible way. Slide your finger around the watch circle face, the watch’s interface will slide as a luxurious way. It’s kind of a visual enjoyment and operation upgrade.

2. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 got two versions, one is the general Bluetooth version, which only connecting to the phone, you can receive or make a call. The other version is the LTE version, which allows you to install a independent SIM card and use it as an independent smartphone. You can make phone calls, send messages, use internet apps completely without connecting it with a phone.

Galaxy Watch Active 2 

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is $230, and it’s just released for a short time. And though the new Galaxy Watch Active 2 is not really enters the market now, we also got a lot of information about it, and also know the price, $279.99 for the Bluetooth version, and $299.99 for the LTE version. For the certain launching date for this new smart watch is still not clear now.

Suggestion:

After reading this article, you already know the difference between the Galaxy Watch Active and the Galaxy Watch Active 2. If you like the Active 2’s luxuriant interface changing operation or want to use it as an independent smartphone. Of course, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is your priority. However, if you don’t care about these, just using it as a health or exercise tracker gadget, the Galaxy Watch Active can fully satisfy you. So you don’t need to spend more money just for chasing an new arrival. In my opinion, the function is the most important thing. Think about what you really want first, then make a wise choice.

Actually, the price for all these three watches is not cheap. And to compare with other smart watch, they are kind of high. So as my suggestion, only if you have enough money or like it a lot, chasing its design or exercise tracking function, you can choose these Samsung smart watches. Otherwise, there are plenty of nice choices for you, such as Xiaomi smart band, or HUAWEI smart watch with only $20 - $100 dollars.
