    Official Galaxy Watch Active watch faces released for older smartwatches

    Watch faces that debuted on the Galaxy Watch Active can now be downloaded on older Samsung smartwatches. There are five watch faces in total: Health Dashboard, Pop Analog, Solari Board, Breathe, and Pie Twirl. All five were published on the Galaxy Store last week and are available for the Galaxy Watch, Gear S3, and Gear Sport, although a couple of them may already have been available for at least the Galaxy Watch.

    The Galaxy Watch Active is a smartwatch that's all about fitness tracking, and the Health Dashboard and Breathe watch faces build on that fact by allowing you to view your exercise data (like heart rate and steps taken) and fire up breathing exercises with a single tap. The rest are superficial watch faces, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth your time. After all, the primary reason to use watch faces is to keep things from getting too monotonous every time you glance at your smartwatch to check out the time, isn't it?

    For those who haven't been keeping up, Samsung is already working on the Galaxy Watch Active 2. The new smartwatch will build on its predecessor by offering more health-related features, including ECG and fall detection. It will come in two sizes (44 mm and 40 mm), and we can expect a slew of new watch faces as well, some of which should make their way to Samsung's existing smartwatches at some point.

    You can download the Galaxy Watch Active watch faces on your Galaxy Watch, Gear S3 or Gear Sport by tapping the respective links below on your smartphone and hitting the Install button on the Galaxy Store.
