    Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2: I like the design stylish

    Lieze. Horlogespecialist. | 12 December 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Sharp and colorful screen
    • Touch edge responds quickly
    • Can call any phone number
    • Battery lasts 1.5 to 2 days
    • You make your own watch face
    • Dial always-on screen too simple
    • The 40 mm variant is on the small side

    I think the Active2 is a stylish watch. The clean lines and minimalist design really appeal to me. It may be swearing in church, but the watch reminds me of the round version of the Apple Watch. Although there is also a sporty variant, it is mainly a smartwatch and less a sports watch.

    Touch edge works well, but I use little
    The screen responds quickly to my touch and is bright and colorful. Long before I could test the Active2, I heard about the touch edge that allows you to quickly navigate between apps. Indeed, when I swipe the screen, the watch quickly switches between apps. I even get feedback from the staggered apps with a little vibration. However, I notice that I hardly use the touch edge after a few days. Clicking on the apps works just as fast, if not faster. Of course this is a matter of taste. Someone else might really like this.

    Answer apps like you used to text
    Answering whatsapps goes like you used to text. The first key represents a, b and c. I have to say, it took some getting used to, but after practicing a few times it actually went quite quickly. Still, I grab my phone if I want to send long messages. The messages I get are easy to read. What I do regret is that photos do not show.

    Call whoever you want, but on speaker
    I also like that you can not only call numbers from your phone book, but any number. Not many other watches have this. However, the watch must be connected to Bluetooth to be able to call and you always call on the speaker. That's why I only call at home via the watch. The quality of the music player is fine and better than I expected. At least it's good enough for listening to music during my weekly session at the gym.

    A new watch every day
    You can make the Active2 as personal as you want. There is a lot of choice in dials: from classic to modern. I think it's nonsense that you have to pay for some dials. So I don't either. What's nice is that you can set a photo as background. You can also create watch faces based on a pattern or color combination. What strikes me is that the dial of the always-on display changes to a simple version where you see the time. I regret this.

    The small version fits well on my small wrist
    Now the format. I have narrow wrists, say 6 inches in circumference. The small 40 millimeter version looks nice on me, but I think many of you find it too small. Fortunately, the Active2 also comes in a larger 44 millimeter version. I've included photos of both sizes so you can compare them.

    Beautiful watch that can become even more valuable with soft

    • Software misses
    • Screen resolution
    • No contactless payment

    The Active 2 is my first smartwatch. My expectations were high given its price and (the expertise of) the brand. This review is therefore somewhat critical, but don't get me wrong, I am definitely satisfied with the watch!

    In general
    The design is great and the wearing comfort is good. The display is also fine. Bright enough, beautiful colors and the touchscreen works accurately. Although a higher resolution would certainly be noticeable, but perhaps not very necessary given the purposes of the watch. In addition, you now save some battery with the current resolution. And regarding this battery: I see in many reviews that the watch only lasts a day, but in my case this is a lot more. I have the feeling that I use the watch quite intensively (regular always-on display and continuous heart rate measurement turned on) and consume about 40% battery per day. I only charge the watch during a shower and sometimes also during breakfast, depending on how far the watch is charged (which also goes smoothly).

    Functionalities
    The main question for me was how useful the functionalities would really be and how well/accurately they would work. My conclusion is that everything works fine in general, but there is still a lot to be achieved by means of. software improvements. Receiving messages is nice, but not replying. I bought an app that converts Dutch speech into text. The app works very accurately, but unfortunately you can't use punctuation, which means you always have to answer in 1 long sentence. So if I want to answer, I grab my phone earlier because it works easier. WhatsApp media cannot be opened on the watch. So photos can't, and voice memos can't be listened to either, while the watch does have a speaker. I also tested a navigation app but it didn't work. While I think this would be a nice addition. Suppose you want to use your navigation on your bike, it is inconvenient (and forbidden) to look at your phone. Using earphones in Google Maps on speech doesn't work very well either, I know from experience… A well-functioning navigation on your watch would be a perfect solution in my opinion. Also for walking. Then YouTube, which works well but I never use it because the display is impractically small. I don't use Spotify because my bluetooth earphones connect faster to my phone and the operation can be done with the earphones. A similar app like Shazam is also available, but the reviews were very bad. Because you have to pay for the app, I have not tried this.

    personalize
    It may sound negative, but I am very happy with the watch. Especially because the watch can be extensively tailored to your preferences. The notifications are simply super handy and you can set which notifications you want to receive. I also decorated the settings panel completely personally. This way I can easily switch on the theater mode (= vibration off, screen no longer lights up automatically), sleep mode (= vibration off, except alarm) and always-on display. I use this a lot. The calendar reminders are also nice, the timer (I use it more often than I thought) and the overview of the weather forecast, which I also have on my 'watch face'. You can easily set up the watch face on the Galaxy Wearable app, which is also very user-friendly.

    monitoring
    Then about the 'Active' part of the watch. I find this super easy to keep track of. Steps, stairs, heart rate, sleep and all the notifications you get about it. For example push notifications or achievement notifications. The pedometer works very accurately, as does the heart rate measurement (which was also my least expected). However, it is a mistake that when you continuously measure your heart rate, this is displayed in the Samsung Health app. You cannot zoom in, so you can never easily see the course of your heart rate during, for example, a sports session of an hour. After all, the timeline is always 24 hours. In addition, when I start exercising, I have to set in advance that my heart rate is measured continuously, because otherwise my 'active time' will not be measured accurately. My sleep is also monitored. Nice to see, but unfortunately works less accurately than hoped. Every night gives roughly the same results in terms of deep/light sleep while some times I sleep much better than others. In addition, the time that you lie in bed from the moment you just woke up is also counted as sleep. Only when the sleep mode is switched off or when you get out of bed, the sleep is ended.

    In summary, the watch is fun and certainly useful, but steps can still be taken in the field of software. Contactless payment, open WhatsApp media received, Shazam, navigation, a clearer Samsung Health app, sleep monitor improvement and possibly Google assistant (since Bixby still works uncomfortably) could make the watch more valuable.

    Despite the critical review, I would recommend the watch for interested parties, since I cannot name a watch with more functions than the Active 2. In addition, I am convinced that the watch will last for years, given the hardware. And let's hope for the software improvements!

    A lifestyle watch with ease of use and a beautiful design

    Leon Abbink | 16 October 2019 | In the version: Black | 40 mm | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Super pleasant to use. Comfortable and very easy to operate.
    • It's a watch! But then with all the extras of activity and smartwatch.
    • Accurate
    • A bit on the pricey side

    Pairing and setting up is a piece of cake. After that, you can measure just about anything and know what you want. A relief not to have to keep looking at your phone for messages. Battery lasts a day even after intensive use. And it gives you much more insight into your daily activities that you can start improving. From sleep to food. Don't want to miss this smartwatch and activity tracker anymore.

    Top Smartwatch with many functions, almost perfect!
    • Nice design, fits perfectly on the wrist
    • Bright screen
    • Handy touch turning ring
    • Clear interface
    • Battery drains quickly
    • Unfortunately no option for wireless payment in NL yet

    The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 is a nice upgrade compared to the first version. The handy rotating ring ensures that you can quickly find apps (keep in mind that this must be turned on in the settings).

    What is especially striking is the brightness of the AMOLED display, so that you can see the image clearly in almost all lighting conditions. The water resistance with a rating of IP68 ensures that you can walk or run through the rain without worry, so you don't have to take it off. The heart rate sensor feels very accurate and gives clear measurements at rest, during activity, but also while sleeping.

    There are also many watch faces available and with additional apps such as Facer countless possibilities. The disadvantage of many watch faces is that some watch faces use a lot of battery, but that is the choice you have to make. After all, a simple watch face results in a longer battery life than a more elaborate watch face.

    The battery life is unfortunately a bit disappointing, at the moment I get 1 day. I read on the internet that a number of users get 2 days, but I think you only get this if you turn off many notifications and also turn off the always on function.

    Conclusion:
    I would definitely recommend this watch, it has many functions, an easy-to-touch rotating ring, a bright screen and a clear interface. If you prefer a long battery life, then I would choose another smartwatch. Charging every day or every other day is a must.

    It's exactly what I was looking for..

    I can't live without it, fantastic!
    • Convenient to operate
    • nice color
    • Straps for sale separately for variety
    • Big enough for the apps
    • Clear apps also by phone
    • Charging the battery takes a little too long if you are used to fast charger

    If you receive an app, you can simply read it and answer it briefly. It is comfortable, different types of straps for sale. You can also call with it... the heath apps are quite extensive. Sleep is tracked...notifies me if I'm sitting too long to get moving...and morerrrr

    Basically a beautiful smartwatch!
    • Nice light design
    • You quickly learn to work with it
    • Many sports programs
    • Sometimes automatically detects workouts
    • Not suitable for all bluetooth earbuds
    • Does not detect all movements during bench presses, arm extensions etc.
    • Sometimes automatically detects workouts

    The Active 2 keeps track of your activities and is like a sports partner that helps you keep track of your health.
    The watch feels like a classic watch and is easy to use. Sometimes the Active 2 also registers

    I bought the Active 2 because of its ability to listen to music via Spotify (offline) while exercising. Of course I don't like to do this via the built-in speaker, no matter how cool it is that it is on it. The only other way to listen to music is via the built-in Bluetooth. For this I wanted to use my trusty Jabra Elite 75Ts. However, this has never worked until now. The Active 2 recognizes the earbuds immediately, but as soon as I start running the sound falters enormously and the connection eventually drops. This happened with two Active 2 watches that I tried. I had to return the first one as it stopped charging after two days of use. I was told by Jabra Technical Support that they do not support their earbuds with smartwatches. If this succeeds at all, they say it is pure luck.
    Samsung itself says about the same.

    Running with some music is future music for the time being with my Active 2 and earplugs. I think this is a shame, since they cost about 500 euros together.

    Hopefully Samsung will do something about this. In any case, Jabra has indicated that it is not working on a solution.
