Galaxy Watch Active launches in India today for Rs. 19,990

The stylish Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is now launching in India where the wearable can be acquired for the price of Rs. 19,990 ($288). Starting today, the smartwatch will be offered by various third-party retail stores, Samsung’s own e-shop, as well as the company’s “special outlet” in Bangalore, known as the Samsung Opera House. Starting with June 27, the wearable will also launch in the country through Amazon.

Samsung’s first high-end smartwatch in recent years to lack a rotating bezel is launching in four different colors, namely Silver, Black, Sea Green, and Rose Gold. The AMOLED screen has a resolution of 360 by 360 pixels and the panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This is a very important detail considering the fact that the screen is much more exposed compared to the standard Galaxy Watch, whose screen is less prone to taking damage thanks to its protruding bezel.

The Galaxy Watch Active is capable of tracking dozens of activities and has dedicated GPS connectivity. It aggregates all of the fitness data into the Samsung Health app on your connected smartphone.

Woah woah woah! Stop right there! 20K rupees for a smart watch?? I’m sure it’ll have a high patronage.


Nice, but I think if people can get the Gear Sport or Gear S3 for a similar price, it is a much better watch, better looking and has a rotating bezel and One UI. I’m sorry, but when I held the Active watch it felt and looked cheap and the design is very boring. It could easily be a 10 euro watch you can buy on the street. Just my opinion.


“whose screen is less prone to taking damage thanks to its protruding bezel.”

Yes. But bezel on Galaxy Watch can be scratched very easily and GW have Gorilla Glass SR which can’t ba scratched as normal GG.
