The best smartwatch out there for those who use an Android phone

from TrustedReviews

If you have an Android phone and want the best smartwatch going, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is it. Great design, acceptable battery life, solid fitness features and outstanding performance make it the best all-round wearable that Samsung has made – and that makes it better than any Wear OS watch currently available.

Android’s best Apple Watch contender

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 works on iOS, but functionality is limited. You can’t even respond to notifications. If you’re rocking an iPhone, get an Apple Watch. Plain and simple. If you’re an Android user (you should be, of course), the 40mm or 44mm Samsung is the best smartwatch you...More

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 works on iOS, but functionality is limited. You can’t even respond to notifications. If you’re rocking an iPhone, get an Apple Watch. Plain and simple. If you’re an Android user (you should be, of course), the 40mm or 44mm Samsung is the best smartwatch you can buy. There are compelling Wear OS models out there from luxury watch brands like Tag Heuer and Montblanc, and both Fossil and Skagen have very nice, affordable options. None of them, however, can match Tizen’s fluid, cohesive experience. And the slick simplicity of this hardware is the closest thing you’ll get to an Apple Watch, and it’s even round to boot.

The concept of the digital bezel works well

The Galaxy Watch Active2 is a pretty smartwatch that can be operated intuitively and comfortably. The replacement of the first, at that time still mechanically rotating bezel of the Galaxy Watch by a digital bezel naturally also changes the looks.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 is a pretty smartwatch that can be operated intuitively and comfortably. The replacement of the first, at that time still mechanically rotating bezel of the Galaxy Watch by a digital bezel naturally also changes the looks. The visuals are now more delicate and less technical. In terms of its function, it also works very well in its current form.

The Samsung Galaxy Active 2 delivers on the promise of the original in strong form. Carrying confidence across both the design and performance sides of the equation, it’s easily the best wearable Samsung have shipped in years. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the first sign of proper competition for the Apple Watch. Assuming you're someone who already uses a Samsung phone, Samsung Pay and Spotify anyway.

The best Android smartwatch gets better

from Tom's Guide

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 shows Samsung is racing to catch up with Apple. This smartwatch can’t compete with the Series 5, but it’s far better than any other Android smartwatch.

Dial 'P' for pricier

from TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is a minor upgrade on its predecessor, adding a digital rotating dial, bigger version, currently inactive ECG, and LTE option. But it's also considerably more costly, putting a hefty price on only a few extra features.
