AndroidPIT

Works well and has many practical features

from AndroidPIT

While a slightly better battery life would have been desirable and the rotating bezel is missing, the Galaxy Watch Active offers an excellent price-to-quality ratio that shows nice versatility in use.

While a slightly better battery life would have been desirable and the rotating bezel is missing, the Galaxy Watch Active offers an excellent price-to-quality ratio that shows nice versatility in use. Compared to the Apple Watch, it still lacks some features, such as ECG, and simplicity in the configuration that only iOS can offer at the moment.

Wareable

Great at keeping you moving

from Wareable

If you want a smartwatch that's small and light, but doesn't scrimp on features, then there's a lot to like here.

If you want a smartwatch that's small and light, but doesn't scrimp on features, then there's a lot to like here. Samsung's software still needs some refining in our eyes and it clearly hasn't delivered on that promise of blood pressure monitoring. But if you can overlook those shortcomings and can focus on the price and what you're getting for that money, this is a smartwatch well worth your time.

A great watch for an Android based users

from DC Rainmaker

The Galaxy Active would make a great watch for an Android based user that is more casual in their sport tracking. Perhaps just enjoying sport for the sake of fitness (or ‘Active-ness’) as it may be, rather than from a competitive standpoint. With the features and Spotify support, there’s no...More

The Galaxy Active would make a great watch for an Android based user that is more casual in their sport tracking. Perhaps just enjoying sport for the sake of fitness (or ‘Active-ness’) as it may be, rather than from a competitive standpoint. With the features and Spotify support, there’s nothing else at this price point (or anywhere near it).

Basic doesn't mean bad

from Engadget

The Galaxy Watch Active is basically the flagship Galaxy Watch boiled down into a basic, sport-friendlier body. It loses the rotating bezel, has a much smaller face and shorter battery life, but otherwise offers everything you’d expect from Samsung’s higher-end smartwatch at a cheaper $200.

A great, feature-packed smartwatch ... if you use Android

from Mashable

At $199, the Galaxy Watch Active is a really affordable option. Yes, it doesn't have cellular connectivity, but as far as feature-packed smartwatches go, the Galaxy Watch Active has a lot going for it. And it's a particularly great companion device for your wrist if you own an Android phone.

Great hardware let down by erratic tracking

from Android Authority

The Tizen-based Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, as a smaller alternative to the big, bulky smartwatches we usually see, is a compelling piece of hardware. It provides a lot of the same features as larger wearables and even adds a few new ones like blood pressure monitoring. The problem is that the activity tracking is way off and is in desperate need of re-tuning before this watch becomes a contender.

It’s certainly among the best for its money

from PhoneArena

It’s got a good-looking screen with an always-on option, its automatic workout tracking is spot-on, its battery lasts for about two days on average, so you can easily track your sleeps, and you can easily swap bands with quick release. The biggest downside for us was the haptic feedback that di...More

It’s got a good-looking screen with an always-on option, its automatic workout tracking is spot-on, its battery lasts for about two days on average, so you can easily track your sleeps, and you can easily swap bands with quick release. The biggest downside for us was the haptic feedback that did not feel great and we also did miss the rotating bezel as it’s hard to tap and swipe on such a small screen. None of these, however, are a deal-breaker in our view.

A sleek, lightweight way to track your activity

from Wired

Maybe we still can’t have it all with smartwatches—smarts, good looks, and stamina—but with something like the Galaxy Watch Active, the sacrifices suddenly don’t seem so pronounced.

Slim, round and half the price of the Apple Watch

from Cnet

The Galaxy Watch Active is a great smartwatch and fitness tracker at a reasonable price, but don’t count on actual blood-pressure monitoring any time soon.

A wealth of smartwatch and fitness tracker features in a versatile and attractive design

Like its pricier predecessor, the Galaxy Watch Active runs on Samsung's Tizen operating system, is powered by virtually the same hardware, and has a number of fitness features like GPS, heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking. It's still not a better smartwatch than the Apple Watch, or a better fitness tracker than the Fitbit Versa, but it's a solid alternative if you're looking for a little bit of both.
