First look at Samsung's sleek Galaxy Watch Active



It was easy to miss all the foldable phone hype, but Samsung revealed its latest smartwatch Wednesday at its Unpacked event: the $ 199 Galaxy Watch Active.

But just because it didn't have much time in the spotlight doesn Galaxy Watch Active is not worth checking out. While Samsung's prior smartwatches have tended to be massive, its latest wearable is much more subtle – and one is much more likely to actually wear.

Meet the Galaxy Watch Active

A follow-up to last year's Galaxy Watch The first thing you'll notice about the Galaxy Watch Active is that it's not nearly as bulky as the relatively massive Galaxy Watch.

With a 40mm case and no rotating bezel , it's noticeably slimmer – with a wrists (or really, anyone who appreciates a lower profile watch).

And at $ 199, the Galaxy Watch is a much more affordable option than the Galaxy Watch “/>

I only wore the galaxy watch active for a few minutes, but i was impressed by how light it was. And it was at least as comfortable as any Apple Watch I've been

Besides the size, one of the biggest changes with the Galaxy Watch Active is that it doesn't have a rotating bezel. Instead, you navigate the watch's menus by swiping left or right.

There are also two page buttons that let you launch and close apps. It might take a little while to get used to the rotating bezel UI, but I didn't find it very complicated.

You can download the Galaxy Watch Active with the S10

Image: karissa bell / mashable [19659008] The Galaxy Watch Active charges wirelessly. And, like Samsung's newly-announced Galaxy Buds, you're able to charge it with your phone if you have one of the new Galaxy S10 phones. This feature seemed a little tricky in my demos, but I could easily see how it was helpful to get a little bit of extra battery life if you're in a pinch.

Health and fitness first

Like its name suggests, the Galaxy Watch.

While the company has not matched Apple's advanced heart rate monitoring features, Samsung has added a new blood pressure monitoring feature via an app called My BP Lab. The app, which will be available in the U.S., UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, and Germany. This wasn't available to try out the demo models I took a look at, but hopefully it will be ready when we're able to do a full review

I did, however, get to briefly try out Samsung's guided breathing app, which is meant to help you relax through deep breathing, similar to Fitbit's "relax" feature.

On the fitness side, the Galaxy Watch Active has the ability to automatically track certain types of workouts, along with usual step-counting and third-party exercise apps.

We'll have more on all of this when we're able to do a full review, but the Galaxy Watch Active manages to squeeze into a pretty compelling package.

While you won't get the fancier features of Samsung's larger (and pricier) watches, the Galaxy Watch Active is an approachable smartwatch that will appeal to fitness enthusiasts.
