The Samsung - Galaxy Watch Active2 Smartwatch 40mm Aluminum - Pink Gold is wonderful. I am in love with this watch. First of all I love the color of it. It's a very high quality watch. It's made nice and strong. This watch has so much stuff that it does and many things you can see on it instead of reaching for your phone. My favorite part of this watch is I can see who is calling me, answer and talk through my watch. I can recieve text messages, read them and respond on my watch. You can get all kinds of notifications on this watch, from texts, to emails, to weather, whatever you have it set on. I also like the actual health app on the watch, and it tracks your daily steps. It can do alot under the health app and measure different things on your body. I also really like how we can put so many colorful watch faces on our watch, I am just so in love with this watch just because it gives us so much access to alot of things without looking at our phones. I do definitely recommend one of these watches they are the best.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is one of the best purchases that I've ever made in wearable technology. It delivers with more than adequate battery life, far superior comfort when compared to other products, a feature set that will appease most so-called "Geeks" such as myself, and the availability to add more features and/or applications via the Galaxy app store. The new customizable watch face feature makes the creation of customizable watch faces easy and simple. With just a snap of your clothing, and multiple watch faces are created for you that match your outfit. I also appreciate the much slimmer and sleeker design, when compared to the regular Galaxy Watch. With that, I can confidently say that (at least in my opinion) the Watch Active2 is the most fashionable, functional and flexible. (The Three Fs, as I call it.)
It is fashionable, due to its sleek glass, (in my case) aluminum housing, and unobtrusive thickness that is no thicker (if not, thinner) than your average premium analog watch.
It is functional, due to the fact that you have all the basic necessities that any digital watch should have PLUS, step tracking, workout tracking, heart rate monitoring, upcoming electrocardiogram capability, text messaging, the ability to accept, decline, and create phone calls, pay for things using Samsung pay, find your phone, the creation and cancellation of alarms and reminders, the ability to check the weather, and have music playback controls (also including track selection), just to name a few. (And I don't think I really need to explain why I think it's so flexible).
And just to mention other things I love about the Watch Active2, I love the touch bezel (which is much better than you think it is), I love the SAMOLED display that by default automatically dims to fit the environment that it's in along with providing smooth animations, I love the now larger back button so you can tell that it's different if you're in the dark, I love the ability to triple click the apps/home button to send a message to your emergency contact(s), and so much more.
Now here's the part where I would usually explain the cons of the watch/device. But there was an issue, I struggled to come up with any. I would usually have a very long laundry list of cons, but I really don't have any. The only part I can say is a con, is that some people aren't satisfied with the accuracy of the health tracking features. Maybe it's just me, but I really haven't had any. The lack of feminine health tracking might be a con to some women, but I'm not female, so... That doesn't apply to me... That's all I can really say.
So in the end, if you are currently looking for a smartwatch to go with your Android device, then I say you should absolutely go with this one. It has many a feature that the competition do not supply, has great battery life, a digital rotating bezel that is the best way to interact with it, a decent amount of customization, and health tracking that I believe to be accurate. (Disclaimer: I am not a health professional by any means, and therefore I am not the first person you should listen to when it comes to advice about health tracking). So, I say it is a very worthy purchase. And I am enjoying my time with it.
Ok, I'll start by saying I absolutely love this watch.
There were some issues at first, that neither Samsung nor best buy could resolve, that almost caused me to return it.
Day 2 I stopped getting text/email notifications on the watch. I went thru troubleshooting with samsung, such as resetting watch an app, etc. It worked for an hour. They told me to return it. Well on my own I figured out the watch doesn't receive texts from any apps that aren't stock very well. So I turned off my Verizon message+ and Gmail app. I used stock messaging /email and have had no issues since! So, just a tip of you run into that.... As Samsung was zero help.
I have had it only a few days an will update if anything changes but I recommend this watch, its honestly great in my opinion.
Hey Amanda! I am glad you are enjoying this unit. Thank you for being a part of the Samsung family. ^Kayla

Samsung Galaxy Active 2 smart Watch Fantastic
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
This Smart Watch is incredible it does so many things..All forms of health and exercise, phone, email, games, weather, time. I has a simple magnetic charger and probably 200 or more watch faces. It also has the ability to monitor a person for Seizures and notify by phone and text to a parent or guardian or 911. Although this requires a subscription form smart monitor. It is a true blessing works fantastic and so less expensive than an apple watch. Buy it You will love it !
The galaxy watch active 2 has proven to be top notch! I love the comfortof wearing it and the apps it provides. The only negative I have about this product is battery life is somewhat low this watch under normal use needs recharging about once a day where my old watch (fitbit) held a charge for almost a week! Other than that this watch has exceeded my expectations!
This watch does everything i was looking for in a smartwatch! It can send and recieve text and calls as long as your within a few feed of your phone. I love the fact i can be at the grocery store and instead having to fight with my bag to find my phone i can just answer a call with my watch!;)

The watch is great it is comfortable and it's great with keeping track of heart rate. I love how it keeps track of your physical activity and if your not active in a certain amount of time it notify you that it's time to get active. I love how I get listen to music, take calls and text messages i will say i am overall satisfied. I have only owned it for 3 weeks and still learning new things every week
I absolutely love this watch, especially the ECG function. Since I've been having palpitations, I can record them on my watch at any time and send the results to my doctor.
Very responsive and smooth screen changes. Have not had any issues with the touch screen, even with a protective case over it.
There is a swimming option you can turn on as well that locks water out. Once you're done swimming, you turn the water lock off and it vibrates the watch to get any water out. Super neat!
I was thinking about getting the 44mm, but so glad I went with the 40mm. It doesn't hurt my wrist when I bend it.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 review: Solid smartwatch, inaccurate fitness watchWhile the original Watch Active felt like a first-generation product, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is a product that proves Samsung is listening to user feedback.

A:AnswerGreat question. The difference between the LTE and Bluetooth version of the Galaxy Watch Active2 is that LTE version of the watch is able to give you notifications without you needing to be within Bluetooth distance or even having that feature turned on, on your mobile phone. The LTE version requires that you pay for service through your carrier. The design of the watch and other features are the same for both versions. Thank you for reaching out to us. ^Kayla
A:AnswerHello Kaden, thanks for asking! This watch is compatible with Samsung Smartphones, Non-Samsung Android Smartphones (Android OS 5.0 and above RAM 1.5GB and above), iOS 9.0 and above iPhone 5 and above. With this watch you can make phone calls from your wrist. You just need to make sure your smartwatch is connected to your phone through Bluetooth. Once that's set up, you can make as many calls as you want. You can also quickly and easily view incoming messages on your watch and send replies, and you won't even need to take out your phone. ^Elizabeth
A:AnswerI tried this exercise with my Motorola phone. I left the phone on the table, near the back door, and went out into the backyard. I got 40-50 feet in a straight line before it started to drop off. When I went around the corner of the house though (about 25 feet) it started to get crackly.
You can ping the watch from the phone, or the phone from the watch.
A:AnswerHello Mika, great question! With this watch you can make and forward phone calls right from your wrist! You just need to make sure the watch is connected to your phone through Bluetooth or through a mobile network. ^Elizabeth
A:AnswerI also have very small wrists and have held off buying a smartwatch because most are gigantic. I even passed up on the Galaxy Watch. I bought the 40mm Active 2, and it's fantastic. Light, relatively slim, and doesn't bother me at all. I have worn it to bed several times, and it hasn't disturbed my sleep (even though I didn't have it in Goodnight mode).
