Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 40mm is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Verdict - Very Good My overall verdict for this smart watch is very good. Like every piece of tech, it has its positives, but also its negatives. I've owned the Galaxy Watch Active 2 for around a year and a half now, and I think it's fair to say I've put it through its paces too. Overall, I think it's a pretty solid smartwatch for its price range; I'd recommend it to anyone buying a smartwatch for the first time with an orientation for workouts and exercise. However, It does have room for improvement. Firstly, the main reason to buy this watch is its wide array of fitness functions, on the whole, it performs admirably. This watch using the built-in Samsung Health app comes with a very wide array of fitness functions (cycling, running, treadmill, etc) and within each comes a fully customizable set of menus which are fantastic. In addition, the watches Samsung Health App is more or less identical to Samsung Health on your phone, meaning you can track everything from sleep to calories. However, the technicalities are where you run into issues. Firstly, the battery drain when tracking workouts is significant, about an hour of cardio exercise can drain you anywhere from 10% to 30%, (values vary depending on certain factors) however I noted it to be significantly poor. This point is strengthened with everyday use, if you workout at the gym, and plan on using this device a fair amount during the day for notifications, messages, etc, then you definitely will not be getting anywhere near the quoted two-day battery life. Especially after around 6 months of use, where I noticed a random drop in battery life from around two days and a half days of light/moderate use to just barely two days. Secondly, the watches sensors aren't brilliant, 75% of the time they work just fine, but that remaining 25% exposes you to an erratic, unpredictable and inconsistent mess. For example, when beginning a workout such as a hike or walk, sometimes the workout will completely cancel for no reason, leaving you with disappointing workout results of 17 seconds with 1 calorie burned. In addition, when running or even just measuring your heart rate, the sensors are sometimes way off. I've even compared it to my friend's Apple Watch Series 4 which gave consistent readings each time, compared to this watches sometimes long and unreliable readings. Furthermore, when using workouts such as dumbbells, the built-in detector for each rep is often wrong. Finally, just a general observation about the watches Samsung Health App: a few months ago, the app received an update that updated the overall appearance of the app. On the whole, it was very good, everything was sleeker, more functional, however, it removed one of my favourite features; having the centre value on the workout display being a bold green colour, which really helped identify that particular readout from the others. Sadly, it was removed and a more boring and dull colour took its place. Thirdly, despite these somewhat negative points, this watch is also brilliant. In terms of setup, the process couldn't be easier, and sleeker. The pairing process takes around 3 to 5 minutes and the Galaxy Wearable App that manages the device is fantastic. It's on another level compared to Apple's pitiful attempt. While the app can be a little laggy when switching between it and other apps, the app itself is beautiful and efficiently categorised. Just about everything is controllable through the app, with customisations and cool features for literally every occasion. Samsung honestly did a great job with this app. Onto the watch itself, the screen is significantly larger (around 20%) compared to the Active, and the bezel surrounding the display is very responsive. However, I'm not sure if this is limited to my watch but the Active seems to have a crisper and more colourful display, and seemingly better performance when switching between icons. In addition to this, the screen is where you run into more problems. I took it swimming and pretty much straight away I put a small scratch in the display which completely ruins the clean and sleek look of the watch face - if you get this device, invest in a screen protector! I always find myself worrying about hitting it against walls and objects. For everyday tasks like notifications, reminders etc, this watch really excels, Samsung has incorporated animations to make the process seamless, even for third party applications. When calling on this device, the audio output through the built-in speakers are good, volume-wise they're pretty loud, however towards the top end the audio really degrades, the microphone quality I've been told is second to none, most people can't differentiate between a mobile phone and this jewel. The watch faces are all good - enough. Some are good, others seem a little rushed and designed by a 7-year-old. Apps for this device are good, and you can install a variety of third-party applications too, most of which are paid for and don't seem to be very refined. Samsung's built-in applications such as clock, and weather are all pretty good, nothing to rave about though. Also, the Bluetooth connection can be a tad patchy, sometimes cutting out and even requiring a restart. Build quality and hardware-wise, I would say overall very good. The strap mechanism is brilliant and sophisticated, I've never had any issues with it, It's well built and is easy to remove. However, will need occasional cleaning due to built-up sweat and moisture etc. The main body itself is good, a little fragile but robust enough, be careful of the glass heartrate sensor, scratches could reduce the performance. The included wireless charger is very good, a full charge takes around 1 hour 50 to 2 hours. Overall, It's a good watch, especially compared to its counterparts. Its price range seems to be a sweet spot. However, I do find myself rooting for a newer, and more refined Apple Watch, so unless Samsung up the game with new features and performance, they could be losing the battle very soon. If you want to stick with Samsung, I would also recommend the Galaxy Watch, especially for men. Its more robust and defiant characteristics appeal more to me as a male. All things considered, It's a very good watch for first-timers, and exercise is definitely a strong suit. I recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk Back of the watch fell off after 6 months, so longer works. This is just with every day use, I live a sedentary life thesecdays. Tried to contact Samsung to get it fixed but it seems they can't be bothered to help once they have your money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great watch except for a minor design error. The black paint on the edge of the rim of the metal case has started to wear off. I believe this is because it is almost impossible to achieve good paint adhesion on such a thin surface. No point in returning it as it will most likely happen again.
