I really love the watch in the last 2 and half year. It worked really well then last month I got a blank screen. I tried to reboost, restart but it didn't work. Contacted Samsung and I was told to press and hold one button to reboost, didn't work then I was asked to press and hold both buttons, it didn't work as well.
For what it cost, 2 and half year is absolutely not worth it. So disappointed with Samsung product. Stay away from this from now on.

Still a long way to go.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 with high hopes that Samsung had made sufficient progress to be comparable to the Apple Watch 3 which I had owned for the previous three years. It hasn’t.
My problem with this watch is that it is glitchy and fragile.
By glitchy I mean the software doesn’t “just work” and often doesn't work properly at all. I rely on the watch for notifications and phone calls. About once a week I notice an absence of notifications and find the watch has disconnected itself from the phone (Pixel 3).
Further, notifications are intermittently late, sometimes by hours.
The alarm on my phone does not ring on my watch so if I want a watch alarm I need to set a separate alarm on the watch.

Watch is awesome
Had this watch since May and overall I love it, UI, Performance, Features are the best of any smartwatch even that of the apple watch 5. Very easy to use.

No real complaints. Does the job.
I bought it mainly for the convenience of receiving notifications and it serves that function reasonably well.
It is comfortable to wear, which is a big plus and you can buy aftermarket watch bands and cases which somewhat allows you to wear it with different outfits. Fitness functions are however gimmicky and virtually useless in my opinion.
I get two days use before I have to recharge. This is on medium brightness and AOD turned on.

This is a quality alternative to Apple Watch
I have recently changed job so had to returned my iphone to my old company. My new company gave me a Samsung phone which wouldn't work with my Apple Watch 2. After some research, I have decided to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 watch, I like the design and the look of the watch. Functions wise it's on par with Apple's Watch. The watch is comfortable to wear and have a lot of fitness capabilities which I like.

Not too bad
I purchased this watch being a samsung fan but it didnt come to my expectation due to glitches i have to face. Its hr monitor is like not calibrated. Does not give accurate reading, blue tooth range is poor. Even i cannot connect it to my mobile in next room.

An expensive error
I chose the black, because the only other option was pink. Within 10 days of just regular wearing the paint had chipped off the outside of the watch. Samsung advised that it was made of aluminium. That was the explanation. In other words, what did I expect. I downloaded the heart rate hourly info and it showed min. beat at 39bpm a few times per day including when I'm not asleep. When I walk or cycle an annoying voice keeps telling me statistics every km (bike). Tried everything to turn it off & again took it back to Samsung. They also turned off various things including Bixby & the voice still reports.
I'm so disappointed, annoyed & completely regretting this purchase.
