    This is a great watch that pairs really well with my Galaxy S9+. The good: * Battery life is very good. Samsung only says that the battery will last all day and that life varies depending in functions used. It lasted 3 days for me using the walking app for up to 2 hours per day and the sleep app at night (along with normal watch and viewing notifications usage). Various review sites give it about the same charge expectancy. * Installed apps are good. Some sites with older reviews from when the Active 2 was first released say it comes with the sleep app but mine did not. I was able to download it for free from Samsung, so maybe they have changed what comes pre-installed since its release. * Some installed apps can be uninstalled to free up space, some cannot all can be uninstalled. * It is very customizable. Menu for the additional apps can be shown and accessed via a circular menu using icons only or you can change it to display as a list-style menu with icon + text. * Nice response time. I first tried a $60 generic android watch from Amazon (which I returned). It was okay but was slow. Both watches, the other and the Galaxy Active 2, have a mode to have a blank display to conserve battery power, and then come on when you raise your arm to view the watch. The cheap watch took 2 - 3 seconds to display the time. This watch is much faster - it seems to take less than half a second. Not instantaneous, but fast enough that I can only guess at how fast it is. * You can use this watch to answer calls and call others when paired to your phone via Bluetooth, and it works well enough. Given the size of the watch it has a small speaker that is usable in a quiet area but is not loud enough to work in a noisy environment. I have the Bluetooth only version, does not have LTE, so I was not able to test the LTE connectivity. I suspect the sound quality will be the same. Now the bad, and there's not much bad to say about it: * There are not as many apps available for the Active 2 because it uses Samsung's Tizen Operating System (OS), not Google's Wear OS. In my research I couldn't find any app that was made for Wear OS only that would push me to a Wear OS enabled watch. Some of the best watch apps are made for both Tizen and Wear OS's (and the Apple watch). * I wish more pre-installed apps could be uninstalled. Some can be uninstalled. Some can be hidden but not uninstalled, so it helps in menu selections but not in memory usage. Example: Samsung Pay is pre-installed but I don't have it and don't plan on usng it. I'd like to free up that space but can't. Hey Samsung: fix this and I'll give you back 5% more in my AWESOME rating. :-D * My favorite watch face is shown in the attached images. One shows the screen layout only and the other is a screenshot from the phone showing SOME of the option available to customer it. The items on the upper left & right portion of the screen and bottom left & right can be chosen by the user (or deleted if not all spaces are needed). On the screen each location is referred to as "Complication Top left" or complication top right, etc. The use of the word "complication" seems odd and I will attribute to a weird language translation. The main issue in this menu, to me, is that there is no option to add the Day of the Week to this watch face. Hey Samsung... fix this and I'll give you back 2% in my AWESOME rating. :-D

    I had an MK Access watch and it was starting to show its age (slowed down, battery life was getting worse, etc..) I searched for an upgrade and came down between an older Frontier or the Active2 I went with the Active 2 for its minimalist design and increased IP rating. Performance has been fantastic. HR monitor has been very accurate (I work in an emergency department so I have been able to confirm the HR with a medical grade heart monitor.) The Active2 has been accurate with a margin of error of 2-3 BPM. Battery life is phenomenal getting 2.5 days with HEAVY use. My only complaint is the built in keyboard for responding to texts the MK watch had android wear so it came with a built in qwerty keyboard and swype. If galaxy offered a qwerty keyboard it would be a home run.

    The watch itself is a pretty good piece of tech. It can look however you want it to look since you can change the band and put different custom watch faces on it as well. You can even put different covers over the face and sides. I originally got a Galaxy Gear S2 for my first try in the SmartWatch scene. I hated it! Completely different story with this. The heart rate and general stress app/sensor works great. The apps you can download have gotten much better. The battery when the watch face is on all the time is roughly 2 days for me. If I change some settings the battery can be just over 3 days. All in all I would highly recommend this watch to anyone looking to join the SmartWatch community or just upgrade their watch in general.

    My gear sport finally bit it. Made the upgrade to the g watch active 2. It's fantastic and I love it. However as with my gear sport the animations when loading a notification are way too slow, it takes about 2 to 3 seconds for the message to appear. Other than that I love this watch it's almost as good as my Apple watch was (back in my dark iOS days) if they could fix the notification issue or allow us to turn off or speed up notifications like you can do with your Samsung phone it would be perfect. If they fix this I will update to a five-star.

    Honestly, it makes using my phone much more convenient as I can rest knowing that someone can't unlock my phone if they're away but I can easily do so just by having my watch registered to my phone It helps me keep track of notifications without needing the temptation to go through my phone and helpful as a fitness tracker. Overall, a good purchase, especially with the minimal downside compared to the latest watch

    I had a little struggle learning to use all the features, but I love it! I can't afford to miss phone calls, and it doesn't matter where my phone is now--I just take the call on my watch! I also love the calendar alerts, so I get to meetings and appointments on time. The goodnight feature is essential. Without it, every time you roll over, you activate the face and get a shot of light in your eyes.

    Exactly what I expected and more, super sleek design and large watch face. All my friends with apple watches ask what kind of smart watch it is they're surprised its Samsung (not a surprise to me) and I get a lot of compliments on it! Surprisingly easy to text on.

    Battery life could be better, but that's the only issue. Bright screen, Loud speaker... What more do you need? A must buy. Definitely get the 44mm size!

    Watch is awesome!!! I work around steel 700t presses all day constantly hitting my watch on solid steel and it has yet to crack or scratch on the face. The black painted casing has some paint that has scraped a away but it gives the watch character. I've love my Samsung watch!

    I am just in love with this watch. I got it to see how it compared with my Fitbit, and I have not used my Fitbit since. I have bought different bands and face covers to used in all different occasions and it is so much fun, and a great tool as well.

    so far I love this watch and work great with my daily life. I go swimming a lot and the whole vibrate to get the water was great but spooky at first. It feel more comfortable in a way and I can see the heart rate monitor is way better then the first. I do miss the spinning part on the top of the watch cuz it made it easy to switch song when im swimming but I cab live with it.

    Bought as Open Box - Excellent and I love love love. No issues or complaints. It does what I need, talk, text, view calendar ect. Love that its waterproof. Can easily buy changeable bands for under $15-20 for multi packs of up to 10. My only conflict is that I may be switching to iPhone soon but It will be a great gift I can pass on to someone.

    Love this watch. Already own the 46mm Galaxy watch. Wanted to get a everyday running watch that had the same functionality. Was at first a little reluctant because it was smaller, but it wasn't an issue.

    This watch exceeds expectations and I got a great price. Only issue is the band size. It is too large for my wrist, so I had to purchase a smaller band separately.
