Offers a lot of functionality

from NDTV

Since the Galaxy Watch Active 2 4G is good with fitness tracking, it is an easy watch to recommend. Android users will be happy with what the Galaxy Watch Active 2 4G offers for the price, as there aren't a lot of Wear OS options on the market.

Sleek, fitness focused, always connected

from BGR

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 4G just falls short from being a complete smartwatch for Android users. It brings in key upgrades over the predecessor. 4G connectivity, better heart rate monitoring and fitness tracking, and improved battery life are some of the pros. Performance is absolutely no issue.

Premium price for premium features and design

from India Today

The price is justified by Samsung brings to the table not just the promise of standalone 4G VoLTE connectivity but also support for third-party apps and a ton of fitness features married to a rather decent battery that helps the smartwatch last longer on a single charge than most of its competitors.

Decent fitness-tracking features

from Pocket-lint

If you’re looking for a round smartwatch that does fitness and core smartwatch features well in equal measures, the second-gen Active is one smartwatch worth checking out.

It looks great, functions even better, and it's not terribly expensive. It's also not reliant on a Samsung phone which is great for anyone who likes this watch but prefers a phone from a different brand. Unless you specifically want something that runs on Wear OS or a different wearable operating system, don't count this one out. There's a lot to love here.

The best smartwatch out there for those who use an Android phone

from TrustedReviews

If you have an Android phone and want the best smartwatch going, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is it. Great design, acceptable battery life, solid fitness features and outstanding performance make it the best all-round wearable that Samsung has made – and that makes it better than any Wear OS watch currently available.

Android’s best Apple Watch contender

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 works on iOS, but functionality is limited. You can’t even respond to notifications. If you’re rocking an iPhone, get an Apple Watch. Plain and simple. If you’re an Android user (you should be, of course), the 40mm or 44mm Samsung is the best smartwatch you can buy. There are compelling Wear OS models out there from luxury watch brands like Tag Heuer and Montblanc, and both Fossil and Skagen have very nice, affordable options. None of them, however, can match Tizen’s fluid, cohesive experience. And the slick simplicity of this hardware is the closest thing you’ll get to an Apple Watch, and it’s even round to boot.

The concept of the digital bezel works well

The Galaxy Watch Active2 is a pretty smartwatch that can be operated intuitively and comfortably. The replacement of the first, at that time still mechanically rotating bezel of the Galaxy Watch by a digital bezel naturally also changes the looks.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 is a pretty smartwatch that can be operated intuitively and comfortably. The replacement of the first, at that time still mechanically rotating bezel of the Galaxy Watch by a digital bezel naturally also changes the looks. The visuals are now more delicate and less technical. In terms of its function, it also works very well in its current form.

The Samsung Galaxy Active 2 delivers on the promise of the original in strong form. Carrying confidence across both the design and performance sides of the equation, it’s easily the best wearable Samsung have shipped in years. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the first sign of proper competition for the Apple Watch. Assuming you're someone who already uses a Samsung phone, Samsung Pay and Spotify anyway.
