Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, a 40mm smartwatch and fitness tracker with a round face and $199 price tag. This is a smaller, lighter, more small-wrist friendly and more affordable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Watch. It runs Tizen OS 4.0 on the Exynos 9110 processor with 4GB storage. It’s available in 4 colors, and uses the same interchangeable 20mm bands as the 42mm Galaxy Watch. It tracks 39 exercise types including swimming and is water resistant to 5 ATM. The watch has a heart rate sensor and a (beta level) blood pressure monitor. It supports Samsung Pay (NFC only), and is compatible with Android and iOS. Samsung claims almost 2 day battery life, which is fairly accurate. For those switching from an iPhone to a Galaxy S10 family phone and are looking for an Apple Watch replacement, it’s worth a look.
