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 initial review: Slim, sporty, lightweight


Samsung has announced the Galaxy Watch Active alongside its Galaxy S10 range of smartphones. Here are our first impressions with the Gear Sport successor.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is a lovely simple and sophisticated smartwatch that offers a smaller, sportier version of the Galaxy Watch. We're sad to see the rotating bezel go but the Active's seamless design is nice and it looks great on.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active review


A beautiful yet functional smartwatch

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,...

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 images leaked AND there are no plans for a Galaxy Watch 2


Dutch site SamMobile has claimed there will not be a second Samsung Galaxy Watch

The leaks come as a surprise only a few months after the original Galaxy Watch Active went on sale. However, if the Galaxy Watch line of devices has been shelved, it’s possible that the Galaxy Watch Active could be updated sooner than first expected.
