Will you be upgrading to this smartwatch? Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Aluminum version comes in Silver Cloud, Aqua Black and Pink Gold colours with Fluoroelastomer (FKM) and the Stainless Steel version comes in Silver, Black and Gold with Leather Strap colours. The watch is available in both 40mm and 44mm sizes, just like the Apple Watch Series 4. It can track 39 different workouts, seven of which are automatically detected and logged in Samsung Health. It has some new sensors on the back as well; sensors in the watch include heart rate monitoring with eight photodiodes, ECG, accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, and ambient light.

There'll likely be two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, one a more "standard" version, the other a "plus".

According to previous rumors, the phones will be fitted with a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor, and come with 8 and 12 GB RAM respectively, with 256 GB storage, and a microSD card slot on the Note 10 plus.

(If so, that would've been the shortest-lived smartwatch ever.) Samsung explained the Active2 is more or less meant to be a mid-tier option between the slightly more affordable Active ($349) and the more premium Galaxy Watch. You can sync Spotify playlists offline, play YouTube videos on the watch display (but why would you do that?) and more. However, considering how much cheaper Galaxy Watch Active 2 is in comparison with Watch Series 4, then we think it's safe to say that Samsung fans are getting a great deal.

Samsung has announced a new smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active2, targeting the fitness and wellness market and with optional LTE connectivity.

It also comes with 5ATM water resistance. It's the same case with the Galaxy Watch Active 2.

Can you still watch the event online?

. The Bluetooth-only version has been priced at $280 for the 40mm model and $300 for the 44mm model.

The report also stated that the latest watch from Samsung can keep track of your stress levels. The smartwatch can be paired with any smartphone, be it iOS or even Android.

Pre-orders get started three weeks earlier starting September 6, 2019 and consumers who pre-order the watch through Samsung.com are eligible for a free Wireless Charger Portable Battery. Would you leave your Apple Watch for it?
