Update: The release date of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 has been set for September 23, at least in the US. Pre-orders will kick off on September 6, and US pricing for the 40mm and 44mm Bluetooth aluminium models is $280 and $300 respectively.

Original story follows

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 has gone official today, just six months after the Galaxy Watch Active was released. Samsung had teased the announcement last week and has now detailed everything its new smartwatch brings to the table, but the company has not provided information on a release date and pricing, only saying the watch will be available later this month. However, thanks to the folks over at AllAboutSamsung, we now have the prices for each Galaxy Watch Active 2 model.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes in two sizes — 44mm and 40mm — and also has a Bluetooth and LTE variant of both. The two sizes are further divided into the type of material used to make the watch: there’s a lightweight aluminium model and a premium stainless steel variant. The 40mm Bluetooth aluminium model is the cheapest at 299 euro, and its stainless steel variant commands a 100 euro premium and is priced at 399 euro.

44mm LTE model costs a whopping 469 euro

The 44mm Bluetooth model, meanwhile, is priced at 319 euro and 419 euro for the aluminium and stainless steel models respectively. The LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch Active 2 is only available in stainless steel and is priced at 449 euro for the 40mm version and 469 euro for the 44mm version. It’s too bad Samsung isn’t offering the LTE model in an aluminium make, which would have made for lower prices than what the company is asking right now.

It’s worth noting that these are recommended retail prices and may vary by market. As for a release date, we can assume the Watch Active 2 will go on sale alongside the Galaxy Tab S6 on August 23 — likely to be the release date for the Galaxy Note 10 as well — in some European markets and come to other countries in the days that follow, but we will need to wait for official confirmation to be sure.
