Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch Active alongside the Galaxy S10 in February this year. The fitness-focused smartwatch succeeded the Gear Sport with a new and improved design as well as enhanced functionality.

The company’s wearables department is busy working on new products. We exclusively confirmed a detail about the Galaxy Watch 2 just last week. We can now confirm that there is indeed a new Galaxy Watch Active 2 in development.

Galaxy Watch Active 2 is in development

As mentioned in our Galaxy Watch Active review, we quite liked the design changes that Samsung introduced with it. The Galaxy Watch Active ditched the rotating bezel to become lighter and more compact. The end product is one that’s extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Yes, the rotating bezel came in handy when navigating through the UI, but the side-swiping system UI could still easily be navigated with taps on the display.

Our sources tell us that Samsung is sticking to the same formula for the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Like its predecessor, it won’t have a rotating bezel as well. This would mean that the device will retain the comfort that Galaxy Watch Active owners have become accustomed to. There may also be some additional design tweaks but you can expect the Galaxy Watch Active 2 to look largely similar to its predecessor. Samsung will obviously improve the fitness-related features as can be expected from a new upgrade.

It’s not known for sure right now when Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy Watch Active 2. One could expect that to happen alongside the Galaxy Note 10 in August. However, given that the Galaxy Watch Active came out just four months ago, Samsung may not put a successor on the market just yet. Nevertheless, we’ll keep an ear to the ground and let you know when more information about the Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes in.
