LONDON, UK – 1st April, 2020 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the newest editions to its smartwatch range, the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active2 Golf Edition, in partnership with the Golfwith™ Smart Caddie app.

 

 

Both devices offer additional features to Samsung’s existing Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Active2 line-up, designed for golf pros seeking to take their game to the next level. As an expansion of Samsung’s partnership with Golfwith™ Smart Caddie, the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active come pre-installed with the free-of-charge app and lifetime premium subscription worth £76[1] . The app provides real-time information to help users elevate their performance on the course.

 

With an upgraded distance measurement functionality, the Golfwith™ Smart Caddie app integration delivers accurate and vivid course information across over 40,000 golf courses worldwide. The device also supports dual maps capability, with both satellite and graphic map support.

 

Leading Innovation in the Golf Industry 

Users can enjoy a selection of dedicated golfing features with the new Galaxy Watch and Watch Active2 Golf Edition:

 

  • Vivid Course Map: Synced with over 40,000 golf courses worldwide from a database of surveyed, satellite and aerial mapped courses. Along with satellite-based course images, graphic images are added to expand user choice
  • Accurate Course Information: Provides distances and views of the green and displays the gradation of the slope of the green through different colours
  • Distances to the Green: The Dual Arc feature provides the distance from the user’s location to the front, centre, and back of the green. Users can also change the unit of measurements based on their preference, from yards to metres
  • Shot Tracking: Users can automatically log the current shot position, and identify the distance between the next shot position to ensure accurate gameplay
  • Automatic Course and Hole Recognition. Users can select the golf course name to download all map data
  • Easy and Convenient to Use Scorecard: With easy and convenient operation, users can input and manage scores, organised by stroke and putt

 

All-round Performance Galaxy Watch Golf Edition

 

The golf course can be a tough place, which is why the Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is ready for anything. Samsung Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is water-resistant[2] and its Super AMOLED display is so bright users can easily read it even on the sunniest or cloudiest days. The Black Sport Strap keeps the watch secure for accurate performance tracking, while the touch screen and rotating bezel make it easy to access calls, emails, and other notifications to keep connected[3]. And with a long-lasting battery, there’s enough power to track all shots, so users can focus on the game.

 

All-round Performance Galaxy Watch Active2 Golf Edition

 

The purposefully designed Galaxy Watch Active2 Golf Edition comes in a lightweight, sporty, aluminium body, with an exclusively developed watch face and two size and colour options — 44mm with an Aqua Black strap, and 40mm with Pink Gold strap. Both straps are made with Fluoroelastomer (FKM) material and feature a breathable design, ensuring a comfortable fit that will optimise performance.

 

The Galaxy Watch Active2 features a digital bezel to make it even more convenient to navigate while maximising the screen size. Directly on the beautifully curved Super AMOLED screen, the rotating touch bezel turns both clockwise and counter-clockwise to advance screens so users can easily select their favourite apps. Plus, the upgraded One UI offers a simple, clear and natural user experience for navigation.

 

Integral Part of the Galaxy Ecosystem

As part of the Galaxy family, the Galaxy Watch and Watch Active2 bring the best of Samsung’s Galaxy ecosystem to the smartwatch for those who want to do it all. When the Galaxy Watch and Watch Active2 is paired to a Galaxy smartphone, the Watch Camera Controller[4] allows users to take photos, start recording a video, preview footage on the watch, switch between front and rear lenses, set a timer and then check the final photo or video — all from the wrist.

 

Plus, all the Samsung services with Galaxy ecosystem—Samsung Health, SmartThings, Samsung Pay[5], and more—are seamlessly integrated with the watch and across all Samsung devices. And of course, everything on the watch is protected by the Samsung Knox security platform.

Galaxy Watch Golf Edition will be available in Silver (46mm) in the UK from £359.
