Few months after the introduction of the Galaxy Watch Active at the MWC, Samsung is said to be gearing up to launch the successor, Galaxy Watch Active 2. First press render of the smartwatch shows a large AMOLED screen without the rotating bezel, microphone on the right side, between the two buttons and a leather strap. It is said to come in 44mm and 40mm sizes and also in Wi-Fi in LTE models with 237mAh and 340mAh battery, respectively.
A recent report revealed that the Watch Active 2 will come with ECG support that lets customers take an electrocardiogram right from their wrist, capturing heart rhythm in a moment when they experience symptoms like a rapid or skipped heart beat and helping to provide critical data to physicians.
It is also said to support atrial fibrillation or Afib notifications by occasionally checking heart rhythm in the background and support Fall Detection which utilizes a next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope to identify when hard falls occur and sends the user an alert.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 could be introduced on August 7th alongside Galaxy Note10.
