Samsung is making the Galaxy Watch Active 2 official on August 5, as teased yesterday. In the meantime, how about some newly leaked official-looking press renders of the upcoming wearable? The latest batch comes from two different sources no less.
First off, let's take a look at what are said to be all the color versions of the watch - at least initially, upon launch. More options might become available in the future. So there's going to be a black/silver model, a pale blue/grey one, and a pink/gold/beige looking thing too.
Next up, there's going to be a special Under Armour edition of the smartwatch, that will be offered in black with either black or grey straps. There may be more color versions of this one, though.
It's unclear exactly what will make it different from a vanilla Watch Active 2, though it's probably safe to expect it to come bundled with a lot of Under Armour stuff. Buying this could net you a subscription to one of the many fitness related services that company operates - MapMyFitness, Endomondo, and MyFitnessPal come to mind, for example.
The Watch Active 2 could have a touch bezel, allowing for a way to navigate the UI without covering up the screen at the same time. The watch is rumored to have Bluetooth 5.0 on board, an ECG, fall detection, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, the Exynos 9110 chipset, and a 360x360 Super AMOLED display. Two sizes will be available - the 40mm watch gets a 1.2-inch screen, while the 44mm device has a 1.4-inch panel. The smaller model has a 247 mAh battery, the larger one goes to 340 mAh.
The wearable is expected to be offered both in Wi-Fi-only and LTE variants. Gorilla Glass will be on the screen for protection, and the Watch Active 2 is apparently MIL-STD 810G certified and has 5ATM water resistance.
Why on earth do the persist with Rose/Pink Gold and don’t offer a Yellow Gold option? Many women want a watch that will co-ordinate with their existing jewellery & most wear some version of yellow gold. My trusty black S2 Classic is due for a...
This is a stupid watch. I was waiting for the regular Galaxy Watch that looks like a real sporty watch. They should have updated a watch that is a year old Not 6 months old!!
I really hope this has the same price as the outgoing model. $199.99 would be great, but I wouldn't pay more than $249.99, TOPS. I'm crossing my fingers for a Christmas sale on this, though. Galaxy Watch Active 2 + Christmas deal = $$$ from me!! Not ...
