What you need to know
- More renders of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 have leaked.
- This is the first time we've seen the wearable in a blue color.
- Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Watch Active 2 on August 5.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 has leaked quite a bit over the last few weeks, and leading up to its announcement next Monday, a new leak shows the upcoming wearable from every angle imaginable.
These new renders come courtesy of Android Headlines, and they further confirm the design of the Watch Active 2. We're expecting a 1.2-inch AMOLED display, 40mm and 44mm size options, and a touch-sensitive frame that'll mimic the functionality of the rotating bezel found on the Galaxy Watch (opens in new tab).
We've previously seen the black and pink colors in other leaks, but this is the first time we're seeing the Galaxy Watch Active 2 in a blue colorway. It's a pretty muted hue, but it's still a nice addition to the lineup.
If you're getting tired of leak after leak, we don't have to wait much longer before Samsung officially takes the wraps off the smartwatch. A teaser video recently confirmed that it'll be announced on August 5, so we have just a few short days to go.

Still can't believe they removed the bezel
It's going to have a touch bezel, should be better than the rotating one... Plus less moving parts may mean longer life span.
The current Galaxy Watch Active doesn't have the bezel either. The standard Galaxy Watch, which is better, just 50% more money, has the rotating bezel. I got a 42mm Galaxy watch a few weeks ago, and skipped the Active, mainly for the bezel. In addition to not having to touch the screen as much (blocking it), the bezel acts as a guard for the screen. I could see the rounded edge screen getting cracked real easy if you accidentally hit the watch on something. Which, if you're actually, you know, "active", is going to happen from time to time.
WARNING : Just don't take it in water, Samsung warranty is void if the watch has problems due to water... They won't fix it. Don't belive their ads about going swimming with this watch... Or any Samsung 50atm water resistant products. These ads were banned in Australia for misleading the public.
I forget mine is in my wrist when I shower and haven't had problems lmao
No major electronic device that is water resistant or "waterproof" is covered under the manufacture warranty. That is why companies exist for protection plans.
What the main difference between this and the original one?
Thats what I'd like to know! I'm planning on getting one soon.
Wear OS and the ability to download and use so many 3rd party apps is the best. i can't believe Samsung doesn't use it on their watch. Samsung using Tizen is terrible. For example, Wear OS uses a swype keyboard that's useful. Tizen on the gear watch uses some T9 multi-tap style keyboard crap... it's like using a Motorola flip phone from the 90s! Can someone tell me why Samsung won't use Wear OS on Gear like LG Sport.
