The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is Samsung’s current generation sports watch, with a sleeker design than the traditional Galaxy Watch 3. size for $ 70 off regular prices. The smaller watch now costs $ 170, while the larger one is $ 200 – great deals on some of the best Android-enabled smartwatches available right now.
The discounted models are the Bluetooth-only versions of the Galaxy Watch Active 2, not the more expensive watches with built-in LTE. Still, you get a lot of it for under $ 200. Galaxy Watch Active 2 can automatically track dozens of workout types, measure your heart rate and stress level, and give you scores for your sleep (spoiler alert: sleep score will likely be bad).
Galaxy watches use Samsung’s Tizen operating system, so you can install apps like Spotify and use the Bixby voice assistant. Notifications from your phone can appear on the watch (my favorite feature), and there are thousands of custom watch faces available on the Galaxy Store. Health data is synced with Samsung Health, which you can view on your phone. If you have friends or family with other Samsung Health compatible devices, you can challenge them to beat your walking / running distances.
- This is the smaller Galaxy Watch Active 2, ideal for people with smaller wrists or anyone who just wants a more compact watch. Some colors are already sold out.
- This is the larger 44mm Watch Active 2. The slightly larger screen is easier to read text, but is otherwise identical to the smaller version.
This isn’t the first time that Samsung has lowered the price of the Watch Active 2 by $ 70. The same discount was live during Black Friday last year, as well as most of the following holiday period. However, the Watch Active 2 remains a great buy at a discounted price, especially since there isn’t a lot of competition from Wear OS watches at this time.
