Although the Galaxy Watch Active 2 was formally introduced on Monday, the wearable also took the stage at Unpacked 2019 alongside the Galaxy Note 10 series, the Galaxy Tab S6, and the Galaxy Book S. At the event, Samsung finally confirmed that there will be a Galaxy Watch Active 2 Under Armour Edition and revealed more details.
No LTE for the Under Armour Edition
Much like the Galaxy Watch Active 2, the Under Amour Edition will be available in 40mm and 44mm sizes. But unlike the standard model, the Under Armour Edition won’t be launched in an LTE flavor. There’s no information about LTE connectivity on the official spec sheet, which contains only the 768MB RAM configuration. A quick reminder: the LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes with 1.5GB of RAM instead.
Other than that, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 Under Armour Edition has the same specifications as the standard model. The only other details setting it apart are the software and some slight changes to the exterior design. On the software side of things, the wearable comes with custom UA watchfaces and is preloaded with the MapMyRun application with six months of free membership to the platform.
UA Edition takes better advantage of the UA HOVR Connected running shoes
Additionally, the Galaxy Watch, Active, and Active 2 can all benefit from real-time feedback from Under Armour’s HOVR Connected running shoes, but only the Active 2 Under Armour Edition will offer up-to-the-minute stats on stride length and real-time form coaching when synced with the shoes.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 Under Armour Edition will launch from $309 on September 13. Would you buy it over one of the standard models? Let us know in the comment section below.
