Samsung Galaxy Watch Active hands-on: bye rotating bezels
The Galaxy Watch Active is the latest watch running Samsung’s proprietary Tizen software, and it will be available for $199.99 when it hits shelves on March 8th. Samsung’s latest smartwatch has dropped the most interesting thing about Samsung smartwatches: the rotating bezels. We just spent some time with the Watch Active, and here’s what you need to know.

If you get a incoming text can you reply with the watch?
Copied Apple Watch hardware design and copied the software too bruh samsung
best bezels ever haha, opposite to s10:D
There is Galaxy Active app altimeter and barometer how it is Galaxy watch, Galaxy sport, Galaxy frontier s3?! Thanks 🙂
I don’t see this stainless steel one on the website??
The ONE thing that even iPhone fans envied most, the rotating bezel, they get RID OF?? I'm sorry Samsung, but that was a powerful and ignorant mistake.
Is there an speaker built in?
Can it be used to control spotify
If this actually does monitor blood pressure is a buy for me, I've been struggling with my blood pressure and if this is accurate, it will be the first time I'll consider buy a smartwatch, because not other smartwatch has a function that my S7 already has, like a podometer and calorie count
Can it call and text?
Anyone wants to share their fitness tracking experience with Galaxy watch? Do they think this new one will be great for fitness tracking?
Ill keep my rotating bezel ..idiots
I think am gone buy the galaxy watch and buds
Is that leather band a special band??
Does it have sound and mic?
does it work with messengers like whatsapp, etc…? do notificatiojns show up?
all the bad reviews about that ring is because the naming of this watch, everyone thinks it's the succesor of the galaxy watch and S series but it's not.
this is a cheaper model not like the galaxy watch, even it's cheaper
Can you reply to massages on it ? Does it work/sync with one plus phones ?
I hope this is a seperate model. I really loved the bezel.
I’m a Samsung and Apple user, as smartwatch goes, Apple Watch is by far the best smartwatch on the market, I switch phones every year, always between Samsung and Apple, and the only thing that I really miss when I switch from an iPhone is the Apple Watch.
That is a nice Apple Watch have there 🙂
Only 6 work outs? The Fitbit versa can detect 20 I’m pretty sure. Or maybe it’s activities you can log. Is the thing water proof?
Does the galaxy active watch let's you to make nd receive calls ?
Text in Watsapp ?
The 744 dislikes are all apple fans ???.
Apple apple …never fail to mention apple
I like the price point, $199. Apple should start worrying when its loyal customers like me begin to consider this watch.
Many folks had problem with bezel and hr and stress monitor on galaxy watch. I sold my galaxy watch because bezel started to stuck its not good if you use it everytime(bezel can get some metal sound when you are rotating it) and hr and stress problem was with update the watch had problem and couldnt work after hard reset or anything and they gave me a new one and i sold it. Google before you buy lot of people had these problems
apple watch series 4 2.0
The pessimistic apple watch wearer, what a moronic move to have him review a Samsung product.
I will miss bezel
You lost me at Tizen OS. Then you shut me out with the omission of the rotating bezel.
CAN WE LISTEN SONGS IN IT ?
SS copied applewatch more than past model…finaly
nice galaxy watch active!but bezel disappear so sorry……
Just got a active ad
I'm a Samsung fan but I love the Apple watch it's way better
Where are you looking at?
people: we love the rotating bezel
samsung: let's remove the rotating bezel!
i hope this is going to stay with the active ("sporty") model only, while leaving the bezel alone on the "classier" versions
Clunky. Bulky. At least it's circular like watches have been for the past thousand years before Apple bucked the trend.
SHUT DOWN THE VERGE THEY ARE A SCAM!!
Those rotating bezels were the best thing in galaxy watches. Why.. why did they remove them??
Just saw a 2018 galaxy watch ad
Stop copying apple I swear samsung. When you press down to change your watch face it sure looks exactly like apples.
Apple Watch wins 🙂
But will this work on any other Android phone besides Samsung… Will I lose features on a OnePlus phone for example?
Apple people should review Android products
Ahhhh the apple watch is sure still years ahead of this thing i just love how the always copy things especially how you change the watchface ohhhh samsung com on
