Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review: Basic doesn't mean bad

 

The Galaxy Watch Active is basically the flagship Galaxy Watch boiled down into a basic, sport-friendlier body. It loses the rotating bezel, has a much smaller face and shorter battery life, but otherwise offers everything you'd expect from Samsung's...

Light comfortable fit ; Bright colorful screen

Bland design ; Hard to navigate on such a small screen without rotating bezel

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active

 

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active offers a wealth of smartwatch and fitness tracker features in a versatile and attractive design.

Lightweight, stylish design. Lots of functionality for the price.

Thick, stationary bezel. Shorter battery life than Galaxy Watch.

While the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active doesn't have any breakthrough features that set it apart from the Apple Watch or the Fitbit Versa, it costs significantly less than the Apple Watch and is arguably more attractive than the Versa. That said, the...

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review: less fun but still a good time

 

The rotating bezel is missed, but this is still a very good smartwatch.

Comfortable, lightweight design ; Reliable battery life ; Good fitness-tracking features

Bixby is a poor voice assistant ; Clumsy to use with non-Samsung phones ; Fewer third-party apps than other smartwatches

Samsung’s latest smartwatch drops the rotating bezel, but it gets most basics right

Small and lightweight, comfortable to wear; Quick Release for easy band replacement; Spot-on automatic workout tracking; Bright screen with always-on option; Accurate heart-rate measurements; Great price; Works with Android and iPhones

The Galaxy Watch Active works well and has many practical features. It is not only for athletes!

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review: Slim, sporty, lightweight

 

The original Active has been succeeded by the Galaxy Watch Active 2, but is the older model still worth considering? Here's our review.

Lovely design ; Great build quality ; Good price ; Easy to use interface ; Good fitness tracking options

Bixby isn't strong ; No rotating bezel ; No LTE model ; Tizen OS still lacks apps ; Active 2 has more features

Think of this as a smaller, sportier version of the Galaxy Watch. Thanks to a fabulous display, good battery life for its size, easy-to-use interface, and premium finish, it's up there with some of the best-looking smartwatches on the market. But with...

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review

 

Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active is smaller than the company's previous premium watches, and it's beautiful too.

High-end design Competitive price Lots of features

Lacks rotating bezel No LTE variant Limited storage

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active takes a lot of what was great about the company’s standard smartwatch, pushes it all into a smaller package and trims some of the top-end features we’ve come to love. Given that the Galaxy Watch Active is a lot cheaper,...

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active does more with less but, at the end of the day, you're still left with less.

Great aesthetics ; Cheaper price-point

Battery life ; No rotating bezel
