Samsung unveiled the fitness oriented Galaxy Watch Active back in March. A new leak suggests that the company is already gearing up to launch the second iteration soon, known as the Galaxy Watch Active 2. The primary distinction here appears to be the LTE chip, although it’s not the only change between the two models. The leak also adds that the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will be available in 40mm and 44mm variants at launch.
This model is also said to have a bigger battery onboard (340 mAh) compared to the Galaxy Watch Active (237 mAh). The design seems to be very much in line with the Galaxy Watch Active, barring the home button which appears to have a red accent now.
It’s entirely likely that this variant won’t hit the shelves until later this year. We also have to consider the fact that Samsung may well make a few changes before launching this smartwatch, although there’s little to no information on what these changes will be. Given the very little traction that Samsung’s smartwatches have received, we’re not sure if launching another variant makes a great deal of sense.
What do you think? Would you buy the LTE clad Galaxy Watch Active 2 when it reaches shelves possibly later this year?
