Sensors and health features

Sensors include heart rate monitoring, an electrocardiogram, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a barometer and ambient light. The electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of your heart. It shows you the rate and rhythm of the heart. Unfortunately, this feature will not be available at launch due to the fact that the feature needs FDA approval and won’t expect to be getting it until early 2020. An accelerometer measures acceleration forces. It has a 5ATM water resistance rating and a MIL-STD-810G military standard rating. The smartwatch is compatible with Android 5.0 and higher and iPhone 5 and higher – iOS 9.0 and up.

The watch can manually track 39 workouts – rowing, running, walking, elliptical trainer and more. The watch also helps you manage your stress using the stress tracker. On the Under Armour Edition of the watch, you get six months free of MapMyRun. If it senses that you’re becoming too stressed, the watch will give you some breathing exercises to make sure you’re happy and healthy. With the smart assistant in your wrist, you should definitely be able to get on top of your possibly hectic life. Roy Choi has used the smartwatch and shared how it helps him with his very hectic work schedule.

Styling your watch

The Aluminium smartwatch cases come in the fluoroelastomer strap colours Cloud Silver, Aqua Black, Pink Gold. The stainless steel cases come in the leather strap in the colours Silver, Black and Gold. Both the 44mm and the 40mm watches come with an interchangeable 20mm strap.

The ‘My Style’ feature is where you can take a picture of your outfit and the watch and it will, in turn, show you watch faces that’ll complement it well. Quite nice if you as me. As well as this neat styling feature, when you buy a watch strap and scan the QR code that comes with it, you will get a link to the Galaxy Store to download watch faces that match the strap.

That is enough of the full specs of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Hopefully, when it’s released, it’ll look as good as it does in pixels.
