The Smart Way To Get Fitter
Why the Galaxy Watch Active2 is good for your mind, body and soul
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – May 15, 2020 – It’s no doubt that inactivity can lead to a number of health issues, including weight gain, low energy and even depression. On the other hand, constant activity can prevent and may even reverse many of these issues. In fact, exercise is an instant hit of happy hormones. Once you’ve decided on a more active lifestyle, the right mindset and tools matter. The Galaxy Watch Active2 helps take care of both. It’s a helping hand that effortlessly motivates and reminds you to keep your goals on track.
“As part of the Galaxy family, Galaxy Watch Active2 is purposefully designed with new, intuitive, and refined features to bring more customisation to your lifestyle, enhancing your health and wellness as well as enabling seamless, connected living. The Galaxy Watch Active2 lets you live better through small, yet meaningful, daily changes, from reaching wellness goals such as sleep, fitness, and stress management to completing tasks efficiently, “ says Justin Hume. Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.
Purposeful Design, Customised to Your Life
The Galaxy Watch Active2 is masterfully designed to be both beautiful and customisable to your life. It comes in two different sizes—44mm and 40mm in diameter—and two styles: lightweight aluminium with a casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) Band, and premium solid stainless steel with a leather strap.
The Perfect Companion for Your Wellness Goals
The Galaxy Watch Active2 also serves as your guide to improved health and wellness, providing actionable insights that can help you make positive lifestyle choices in your diet, exercise, mental health, sleep and more. With exercise, for example, this innovative smartwatch can manually track more than 39 workouts with seven of them automatically activated—including running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine and dynamic workouts. With an updated Running Coach, you can monitor your running pace in real-time and enjoy seven different running programs to help meet your goals.

Integral Part of the Galaxy Ecosystem
