Samsung unveiled a few hours ago its new smartwatch the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 with fast LTE connectivity, social media apps, and offers personalized wellness experience. The new watch runs on Tizen OS and comes with Twitter, YouTube apps and also the notable ECG feature.
Despite the small size of the screen Samsung believes that users may be interested in viewing some content on their smartwatch. It is possible to view the videos in full screen, leave a like and interact with the application.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 will hit the market in September with the apps. The company has not communicated any timeline regarding the arrival of the new apps on some previous models, such as Galaxy Watch, Gear Sport and Gear S3.
“The smartwatch market is rapidly growing, and we at Samsung are excited to continually expand our presence in new and visionary ways”. “With Galaxy Watch Active2, we have created a device that will enable consumers to take control of their health and wellness, and seamlessly flow between their devices and connect across the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem, making their lives easier and better.”
DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics
The watch has a premium solid stainless steel build with a leather strap and will arrive in two different sizes—44mm and 40mm in diameter—and two styles: lightweight aluminum with a casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) Band.
