The Galaxy Watch Active2 will be priced from $549 for the 44m BTH version, $749 for the 40mm LTE, and $799 for the 44mm LTE range. The LTE supported version will have 1.5GB of RAM and available only in premium edition stainless steel.

Instead of a physical bezel like previous Samsung watches, the Active 2 shows off a haptic-response touch bezel, which many reviewers say is a nice and smooth experience. While this sensor might not be medically cleared, it still delivers accurate information that is similar to the one provided by Apple's popular Watch Series 4.

Samsung on Monday kicked off the week with the introduction of a refreshed take on its wearables with the Galaxy Watch Active2. Pricing starts at $279.99 for the 40mm and $299.99 for the 44mm.

Created to be more intuitive and customizable, the Galaxy Watch Active2 can be anything from a fashionable traditional time piece to that slick wearable that notifies you of every status update, message, and sports score. It hits stores on September 27 at a starting price of $279 for the smaller model.

Also like many new smartwatches, the Active 2 comes with a suite of new clock faces. The smartwatch is powered by Exynos 9110 processor coupled with 768MB of RAM.

Two other interesting additions that Samsung included in the new Active watch: Google Translate and a My Style program. The two models differ in design, though.

The 44mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 next to a 44mm Apple Watch Series 4. It features an improved optical heart rate tracker with 8 LEDs for faster readings.

Both can track 39 different exercises, with six of them auto-tracked, and can also track your sleep, measure your stress and vibrate on your wrist to remind you to move more. The aluminum models come in Cloud Silver, Aqua Black, and Pink Gold, while the stainless steel ones can be acquired in silver, black, or gold. The 40mm Bluetooth variant of the smartwatch starts at USD$279.99 (~RM1173) and the LTE variant starts at USD$299.99 (~RM1257) and starts sale in the USA on the 27th of September. The smartwatch can be paired with any smartphone, be it iOS or even Android. Samsung is offering free Wireless Charger Portable Battery for the customers who pre-order the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
