Samsung’s sportier Galaxy Watch Active wants to be your fitness pal

And it's much cheaper than an Apple Watch

If you thought about buying yourself a Galaxy Watch but figured it looked a bit too straight-laced for your gruelling fitness regime, Samsung has just the thing for you. With its sportier design with four unique colours (Black, Silver, Rose Gold and Deep Green), the new Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch Active not only looks more the part, there are improvements underneath too. It can now measure your blood pressure, help you to destress when things get a bit much, plus there’s auto-detection of the most common activities, including running, cycling and rowing. This seems to have come at the expense of the standard Galaxy Watch’s rotating bezel, which is a real shame, but with a price of ₹19,990 it’s significantly more affordable than an Apple Watch.
