Alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung also took the wraps off new wearables in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and the Galaxy Fit. The former will be a smartwatch that will come with all the features one might expect from a smartwatch, while the latter is a fitness tracker for those who might not need all the features of a smartwatch.
Starting with the Galaxy Watch Active, this appears to be a pretty feature-packed device. For the most part it will do what most smartwatches do, such as count your steps, distance walk, calories burned, play music, answer calls, display notifications, and so on. However it will also be able to monitor the wearer’s blood pressure. This will come in the form of an app jointly developed with the University of California, San Francisco. It will also be able to help achieve “peace of mind” with breathing exercises to help keep your stress levels in check.
As for the Galaxy Fit, this is a simpler device as it is a fitness tracker, which means that if you don’t need all the features of a smartwatch and don’t intend to wear it throughout the day, then this could be it. The device will be capable of automatically tracking your activities, whether it be walking, running, biking, rowing, and so on. There will be over 90 different activities that users can choose to track, and there is also sleep and stress management features.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active will be priced at $200 and will be available come 8th of March, 2019. The Galaxy Fit does not have a price yet but it is expected to be released in Q2 2019.
