While the world is talking about the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, which launched only recently, Samsung has launched the 1st-gen Galaxy Watch Active in Nepal. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is a smaller and toned-down version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. It sports, more or less, the same features of the Galaxy Watch.
This watch comes in a smaller form factor of 40 mm. And it’s definitely lighter, at 25 grams, making it more robust. Protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3, it is, meant for the active ones, I guess. But even though it’s small, it has IP68 Water and Dust Resistance for up to 5 ATM or 500 meters.
The display is smaller, with considerably large bezels around it. But the 360 x 360 circular display has the Samsung characteristics – it’s bright, vibrant and good to look at. It runs on Tizen OS 4, has 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB storage, just like the Galaxy Watch does.
However, due to its small size, the battery is 230 mAh only. But that will last you around a day and a half, easy. Also, it features wireless charging as well, and with the Galaxy S10 series featuring Reverse Wireless Charging, it can be a good companion.
The most important feature on this one has to be the Heart Rate Monitor, which can now, also measure your blood pressure. It also offers Sleep Tracking, Fitness Tracking, various exercises, and overall health tracking. This watch can also detect up to 6 workout activities automatically, which is nice. But users are able to engage in about 39 activities on it.
What it doesn’t have are the speakers – so, no music playing or calling on this watch, which the Galaxy Watch enabled you to do. But then again, this costs half as much!
