Galaxy Watch and Watch Active 2 Golf Edition now available in the UK
The Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active 2 Golf Edition are now available for purchase in the UK. Samsung is launching these new models in partnership with the Golfwith Smart Caddie app, which comes pre-installed along with a lifetime premium subscription worth £76.
The new Golf Edition smartwatches boast dedicated golfing features including Vivid Course Map, Accurate Course Information, Distances to the Green, Shot Tracking, Automatic Course and Hole Recognition, as well as a convenient scorecard.
The Galaxy Watch Golf Edition doesn’t get a unique design
While both the 40mm and 44mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 Golf Edition models have gone through a reskin, the Galaxy Watch Golf Edition did not. The newer, bezel-less models feature custom wrist straps with unique color combinations, including pink and white for the 40mm model, and black and green for the 44mm variant. On the other hand (no pun intended), the Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is available only with a 46mm dial in the standard Silver flavor.
All of these Golf Edition smartwatches have Bluetooth connectivity but lack built-in 4G. Aside from getting a reskin and pre-installed golf-related software features, they retain the original specifications, but the same can’t be said for their prices.
The Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is now available in the UK for £359, while the standard model would set you back £299. The 44mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 Golf Edition costs £339, up from £259, and the 40mm model is not yet in stock but should arrive soon.Join the Discussion
