The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 smartwatch has dropped in price today. You’ll catch on for $179.99 at Amazon. This is often the simplest price we’ve ever seen for this watch, which normally sells for around $220 or more. It had been going as high as $270 at the start of the year, and it’s never gone below $200 directly on Amazon before. It’s still going for $270 at other retailers like Best Buy and Microsoft. Only black goes this low, but you’ll get Silver discounted to only $199.99, which still ain’t bad.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 44mm GPS Bluetooth smartwatch
Works with Android and iOS. Automatically tracks popular activities like cycling or swimming. Can monitor sleep, stress, and pulse. Uses a Super AMOLED display and touch bezel for quick navigation. It also has Samsung Pay and Bixby voice control.
Our review of this smartwatch back in November 2019 gave it 4.5 stars out of 5. Andrew Martonik said this watch “is incredibly useful for daily activity tracking, workout tracking, pulse monitoring, sleep tracking… Beyond fitness, you get a full suite of smartwatch capabilities — configure it to try to to the maximum amount, or as little, as you would like .”
You can use this with both Android and iOS devices because it’ll pair with either OS. The advanced sensors within the watch can keep your pace and track all of your fitness goals, and it does tons of it automatically. So, for example, if you opt to travel for a motorcycle ride or a swim, the watch will devour what you’re doing and begin tracking it automatically. If it doesn’t, just manually tune it to the exercise of your choice.
In addition to GPS and Bluetooth, the Active two also features a pulse monitor. It can send you alerts when it detects you reach different pulse levels, including if it’s getting too high or too low. Get insight into your sleep habits and stress levels, too. You’ll even use the Calm app integrated into the watch to seek out some relaxing audio when you’re getting too stressed.
