A Smart Watch for an Active person
After I have had enough with a previous smartwatch (it stopped working due to a charging issue), I decided to jump on to a new frontier of a smart gadget world. Samsung Galaxy Active was not my very first choice. Due to my budget, I needed to pick this one with the feature I really needed for my active lifestyle such as, heart rate monitor, breathing exercise, phone and message notifications, and NFC payment. After 24 hrs of wearing this watch, I loved the size of the watch (40mm), very bright dial screen even in a direct sun, easy to connect t...o Android phone, and automatic exercise. A little disappointment was that I was not able to use blood pressure monitor. My Samsung Jpro 5 doesn't support "My BP App', only S9 and s10 do. It would be awesome I can continuously monitor my blood pressure. However, I am hoping that Samsung will update the software and allow this feature for all Android phones in the future. . Floor counting feature was not working for my watch and seemed to be an issue for other users as well. I am hoping next software update would solve this issue. . This smartphone maybe too small for a guy with a big wrist but perfect size for my medium size wrist.
Purchased in June 2019 at Officeworks Physical store for $349.00.

After owning a Galaxy Watch, this updated model feels much better on the wrist. It is thinner and less clunky than the Galaxy Watch, which is a plus for me. It has all the apps I could want, including Uber, Spotify and Strava (a fitness app which I use for cycling). Battery life is decent, lasting me all day with around 60-70% to spare depending on usage. Water resistance is a nice added bonus, for those times I’m stuck outside in the elements. Being able to pay with my wrist is extremely convenient, too.
Purchased in May 2019 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $350.00.
