Samsung’s announcement of its new Galaxy
S10 phone wasn’t the only new product information to drop. The
tech retailer also announced its newest Galaxy smartwatch – the
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. The newest Samsung wearable will be
available to buy on March 8, but you can pre-order now at several
retailers that we’ve listed below with prices.
As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is focused
on fitness, and its new design and features reflect that. The
ultra-lightweight Galaxy Active comes in one size and features a
1.1-inch display. The fitness watch continually monitors your heart
and will send alerts when an abnormal heart rate is detected. The
Samsung watch can also help with your sleep and stress, analyzing
your sleep patterns and sending you breathing exercises when high
stress levels are detected. The Galaxy Active will also help you
keep on track with your health and fitness goals by tracking up to
39 exercises and displaying your health summary on the smartwatch
display. The waterproof watch comes in four different colors and
has a battery that lasts for days on a single charge.
The Samsung Galaxy Active Watch has a pre-order price of
$199.99/£229. The main reason the Active Watch is cheaper than the
original Samsung Galaxy Watch ($329 / £279 for the 42mm model) is
that the Active is missing the rotatable bezel, a core feature from
the Samsung Galaxy Watch. So navigation of the menus and features
is handled by the touchscreen and two side buttons. If you plan on
using the Samsung watch just for fitness purposes, then the Galaxy
Active is a great alternative at a lower price.
You’ll find all the pre-order prices from several retailers below.
For a limited time,
Walmart is even offering a free charging pad if you pre-order
the Galaxy Watch Active before March 17.
Amazon UK is also offering a free charging pad if you order
before April 19.
Samsung UK is not only offering a free charging pad (must order
before March 20), but will also knock £80 off your order if you
trade in your old watch.
