With unique features such as cadence based real-time form coaching and premium access to the world’s largest fitness community through MapMyRun,[1] the Galaxy ecosystem experience on the smartwatch offers faster fitness insights, more intuitive coaching, and more comprehensive workouts accessible directly from the wrist.

“At Under Armour, every product we design is built around the mission to make all athletes better, and we believe that perfectly aligns with Samsung’s mission to create products that enrich people’s lives and build a new future,” said Paul Fipps, Chief Digital Officer at Under Armour. “We are excited to continue to push the limits of performance and technology through our relationship with Samsung; together we are paving the path for the future with a seamless physical and digital experience. The introduction of the Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition combined with our UA HOVR connected footwear and unique MapMyRun experience will help runners improve their running form and ultimately their performance.”

Always on Running Coach

Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition provides real-time form and fitness coaching to users to help them get the most out of their runs. Using data from the smartwatch or from Under Armour Connected Footwear, users will see visual feedback and hear audio cues during workouts, which will help improve their stride, maintain their pace and continue on the path to conquering their fitness goals.

Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition encourages users to set personalized goals such as pace, distance and duration, and will provide audio cues and haptic feedback throughout their run. With real-time coaching based on data collected from the watch, the wearer will receive comprehensive feedback that helps them adjust their form. Post-workout, users will receive in-depth form analysis and detailed coaching tips on their smartphone, offering an in-depth perspective on running technique that no other product provides.

MapMyRun Partnership

Before every run, users can set up personalized training plans and receive coaching tips that help them work toward their goals. The Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition includes six months of free MapMyRun Premium Membership[2], giving consumers access to training plans that push them to get more out of every workout. During workouts, the unique Under Armour watch display will feature key data such as heart rate, pace, and form so users can view real-time stats and see how their progress compares to their plans. When paired with Galaxy Buds, users can immerse themselves in their run with audio coaching cues at certain intervals throughout their workout giving them an extra push towards their goals. By connecting to their smartphones, users will be able to see more detailed workout reports with added insights following their run.

Stay Connected with Every Stride

As of 2019, all of Under Armour’s HOVR high-performance running footwear connects seamlessly to MapMyRun. With supported Samsung devices, users can connect their footwear directly to their Samsung smartwatch, and receive the same level of coaching and feedback straight from their watch display.

Exclusively on Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition, pairing the smartwatch with the UA HOVR Connected running shoes[3] offers users up-to-the-minute stats on stride length and real-time form coaching. By providing detailed data and concrete tips for improvement, your shoes and your watch turn every run into a personal training session. You’ll learn more, improve your technique, and reach your goals faster—just as if you were running alongside a real coach.

All-Around Performance Running Watch

The purposefully designed Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition comes in a lightweight, sporty, aluminium body, with an exclusively developed watch face and two size options—the 44mm with Black strap and the 40mm with Mod gray strap. Both straps are made with Fluoroelastomer(FKM) material with a breathable design, ensuring a comfortable fit that will optimize performance.

Combined with the advanced signature features of Galaxy Watch Active2, such as the new signature rotating touch bezel and One UI, Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition gives the wearer even more design options and intuitive control tailored to meet their fitness and wellness needs. The watch face provides a bold and clear interface, and users can quickly access the MapMyRun app with a single touch launch. The face features an animated Eclipse design that glows and changes depending on the time of day, with well-defined time and date modes, so you can always identify it quickly and get your run going.

Availability

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition will be available in the fall of 2019 at Samsung.com, UA.com and major retailers.
