Hong Kong – August 15, 2019 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced the launch of Galaxy Watch Active2, a new smartwatch that provides upgraded health monitoring and more customizable features through innovative technology. Integrated with the Samsung Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Watch Active2 helps users reach wellness goals such as sleep, fitness and stress management while offering both contemporary style and infinite convenience to everyday life. 

“Samsung understands that city dwellers are increasingly focused on their overall wellbeing. Therefore, we are dedicated to developing revolutionary products that meet customers’ everyday needs. The new Galaxy Watch Active2 can comprehensively monitor various health indices to help users regulate and change their lifestyle, and achieve balanced health and wellness,” said Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. 

Customizable for a Stylish Design

The lightweight and trendy Galaxy Watch Active2 comes in two sizes – 44mm and 40mm in diameter – and two styles: lightweight aluminum with a casual sporty band, and premium solid stainless steel with a leather strap. The smartwatch can also be personalized with a range of additional stylish strap and watch-face options. 

The Galaxy Watch Active2 features a brand-new digital rotating Touch Bezel, making it even more convenient to navigate while maximizing screen size. Now users can easily select their favorite apps directly on the beautifully curved Super AMOLED screen, by turning the bezel clockwise and counter-clockwise. In addition, the upgraded and interactive One UI offers a simple, clear and natural user experience for smart navigation. 

To highlight their personal style, users can customize their Galaxy Watch Active2 watch face to match their outfit with the My Style [1] Watch Face. In the Galaxy Wearable app, simply take a photo of the outfit and choose one of the five different color patterns. The watch face will change within seconds to match the user’s personal style each and every day. Users can also save a favorite style for later.

Provide Insights for a Healthier Lifestyle

The Galaxy Watch Active2 is equipped with various advanced sensors that fully cater to users’ diet, exercise, mental health, sleep and more. It serves as a guide to help users make positive lifestyle choices for an intuitive health and wellness management experience. 

For exercise, the Galaxy Watch Active2 can track more than 39 workouts, with seven of them automatically activated — including running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine and dynamic workouts. With an upgraded Running Coach, users can even enjoy seven different running options while monitoring running pace in real-time and it will encourage the wearer to speed up or slow down their pace in order to meet the target. 

The Galaxy Watch Active2 even incorporates innovative health sensors on the back, including an improved accelerometer that measures up to 32g of force, Heart Rate Monitoring with eight photodiodes and a new ECG sensor. Together, they provide swifter data collection for users to accurately set up wellness goals and track their workout progress accordingly. 

On the psychology side, through Samsung Health [2] , the Galaxy Watch Active2 helps to track real-time stress level. It also provides access to guided meditation programs through an integration with leading sleep and meditation app, Calm, now available in English, German and Spanish. Enhanced sleep analysis algorithms help users work towards healthy sleep patterns through the four sleep stages, thus improving sleep quality to facilitate better performance every day.
