Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active2 is definitely one of the best-looking smartwatches on the market. And since I’m reviewing the Galaxy S20+, I wanted to give it a go. After all, I review a lot of Wear OS watches, and I use an Apple Watch. It was time to give Samsung a shot.
Announced ahead of IFA last year, it promises some solid improvements over its predecessor. It has 4G LTE in the stainless steel model, and it brings back the popular Touch Bezel, which extends the touch area around the screen, allowing for easier scrolling.
It also has a 1.4-inch 360×360 Super AMOLED display, which is frankly lovely. But also, the 1.15GHz Exynos 9110 chipset that’s included seems to do a great job with performance. The experience doesn’t feel as clunky as a Wear OS watch does, as everything is just a little bit smoother.
It also has a clean design, with curved glass on top and either an aluminum or stainless steel frame. Check out the unboxing video below:
