Which smartwatch are you wearing and would you buy the new Galaxy Watch Active 2?
Wouldn't it make more sense to have watch bands that go along with what you're wearing instead of the watch face matching the outfit?
1 or 2 days battery life is a joke.
Am I the only who noticed that the upgraded heart sensor on the SamSung Galaxy Watch Active 2 plus the addition of being able to record your ECG sounds a lot like what Apple did for their Apple Watch Series 4
so still no WhatsApp??
Omg..U freak Dan again….Much better video now..U changed a lot from a 'pure' negative guy!..to…a lill positive!
There is 2 different kind of silver ? We can see 1 shiny and 1 mate…
Wooow still thick as **
Using samsung gear sport right now and would love to own the Active 2
I dont like that the apps are tight to Samsung. I dont want another account from samsung.
The personal watch face is the only worthy addition to the smartwatch scene. I hope they keep it.
can watch youtube on it?! can the galaxy watch 2019 do this too? the one with the rotating bezel
Sold my Apple watch for a Withings Steel HR, best "smart watch ever" simply because it does the very basics and works across platforms. Tells me the time HR, steps and notifications without making a noise. Even better the battery lasts about 20 days!
bixby! What about android assiastant!?
Me last time at a local tech store: this new watch of Samsung looks great – but there is this big edge where they could have integrated an capacitive rotating bezle. No buying considerations.
One month later I'm thinking about it again ??
I prefer my Huawei Watch GT for the battery life alone. It my not be so smart, but it lasts 2 weeks without changing.
Wearing watch active right now and I am super happy with it, yes this is nice, but i still like this one becouse it is half the price. But samsung, great design and love the way this is going
Actually samsung learns what need to do best shape.
Not like anyone even cares about bixby!
I'm up to buy the Watch active 2 in around fall
Will u be able to receive calls?
Are they gonna sell these in the tmobile store?
The wallpaper feature is really cool.
This thing is legit an Apple Watch clone except they made it circular. The back looks exactly like an Apple Watch
The ability to make the watch face match your outfit seemed like a really neat feature. Then I realized I always wear black. ☻ ?♀️
Sooo my birthday was July 3rd. I told my fiance I want the new watch that Samsung would be releasing this fall for my birthday. So I didn't get anything on my birthday. I'm glad to see that I feel like I've made a good decision. Well, it seems so anyway. Although, I'm curious if the $130 E gift certificate I got when ordering my s10+ will be okay to use to put towards buying this. I sure hope so.
Why not create a watch that is all about alerts and notifications?
Surely there will be a global market for that. Students, business people, just people.
It's not going to be complicated. It should have just a few features and that's it. No unrelated things.
1. Big screen! .really big. As much as it can stay beautiful.
2. Receive notifications, calendar alerts, alerts from whatever you want.
3. Absolute water resistance. Pool and daily shower.
4. The battery in normal use will last a week
5. Option to set how much screen time in each scenario
6. Option to determine the size of the message font. Larger and more readable at the expense of the number of letters on each screen or smaller and see more text.
7. No GPS, no heart and head rate check, no speakerphone and microphone – this too is ready to give up 🙁
Just a watch for people scheduled. Those who use Google Calendar. Those who beep every moment are a reminder of something.
Definitely getting this to watch YouTube on my wrist ?⌚
samsungs design would be so lost without apple.
The Verge can you tell them to update their app too please~
The best part about this: the rotating bezel control is back!
Reminds me of the iPod classic dial.
This is not news. Why is this trending news. God YouTube.
