Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy Watch Active in Vietnam. The smartwatch was announced at the Galaxy Unpacked in San Francisco on February 20. It is more of a fashionable version of the Galaxy Watch, thanks to some subtle but meaningful changes in design.
Sales start on April 10
The Galaxy Watch Active inherits most of the features from its predecessor Galaxy Watch, but offers some significant changes in design. The new watch is thinner and lighter, bringing comfort to users. And while it does retain the same circular display, Samsung has ditched the rotating bezel in it. It may not be a welcome change for everyone, but it’s what gives the Galaxy Watch Active all the new look and feel.
The watch features a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display, and is powered by the Exynos 9110 dual core 1.15GHz processor. It has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage space. The 230mAh battery is capable of running the watch for a full day on normal usage. The military grade device comes with IP68 and 5ATM rating for dust and water resistance.
In terms of health features, the Galaxy Watch Active is capable of tracking 39 different activities, including running, cycling, and swimming. It can also keep a tab on your sleep cycle and blood pressure, and can send users a Heart Rate Alert if it detects an abnormally high resting heart rate.
