Are you bored of the look of your Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Watch Active? Perhaps you’re thinking of revamping the watch bands. Below, we talk about the top 5 replaced Galaxy Watch Active bands.
Let’s dive in further!
While the Samsung Galaxy wearables may not be the best on the market, they bring full fitness tracking capabilities as other Tizen software-run watches. So, you can expect full connections to your smartphone as well as install essential apps you may find useful.
As with wrist bands, there are plenty of Galaxy Watch wrist bands available on the market. And most likely, you are overwhelmed with choosing which one to buy.
But…here’s our advice. Choose the band that makes you feel comfortable, a color preference you love, and of course, the design.
What is the Difference Between the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active?
Most noticeably, this is where it gets easier to differentiate between the two watch models. The Galaxy Watch is available on the market in a circular stainless steel case. Plus, users can pick between a 46mm and 42mm size, with 22m straps and 20mm straps, respectively. Check more detail watch band information for Samsung Galaxy Watch from anther article.
Its features include 360×360 pixel touchscreen, Super AMOLED display, and a rotating bezel to navigate the screen. Also, depending on size, the dimension of the watch comes in either 41,9 x 45.7 x 12.7mm or 46 x 49 x 13mm. Available colors are Silver, Midnight Black, and Rose Gold model. Without a strap, the watch weighs 49g or 63g (depending on what size you have).
The Galaxy Watch Active, on the other hand, comes in smaller and sportier 40mm size. Its dimensions are 39.5 x 39.5 x 10.5mm. So, when compared with the Galaxy Watch, it’s even smaller than its smallest model.
Despite being made of metal, it weighs just 25g without a strap. Its features include a smaller display super AMOLED touchscreen that measures just 1.1 inches. Little wonder why they are tagged as “sportive.”
What is the band size for Samsung Galaxy Watch Active? Unlike the Galaxy Watch models, the Active lacks a rotatable bezel. However, it boasts of two recessed side buttons on its right rather than the trademark bezel. Speaking of the strap, available colors are Black, Silver, Rose Gold, and Green shades – all in 20mm sizes.
Similar attributes of the two watches are optical heart rate monitor, gyroscope barometer, ambient light sensor, and a 3-axis accelerometer.
One аddіtіоnаl thіng tо nоtе thоugh is thаt whіlе thе Sаmѕung Galaxy Watch Aсtіvе’ѕ ѕсrееn uѕеѕ Gorilla Glass, thе standard Galaxy Wаtсh uѕеѕ Gоrіllа Glаѕѕ DX+, whісh ѕhоuld make it a lіttlе more resistant to ѕсrаtсhеѕ.
Battery Life and Water Resistance
Samsung wearables boast of a reliable battery capacity that keeps one going for at least two days. Although Samsung says, the bigger variant of the Galaxy Watch with 472mAh battery will last around 7 days. But according to a lab result, it lasted around 4 days while the 270mAh lasts around 3 days.
On the other hand, the Galaxy Watch Active with its 230mAh battery lasts for around 2 days with use.
As with water-resistance, both devices pass this test confidently. Other features include NFC, which makes Samsung Pay usable for payments.
However, the Galaxy Watch optionally comes with LTE (for calls and texts without being connected to your phone). Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch Active lacks LTE features.
Both the Galaxy Active and Galaxy Watch Active provide basic things anyone would need for fitness tracking. These features include distance, steps, calories, active minutes, and more. Also, there are improved metrics such as VO2 Max.
Those who love to control their phone while exercising can also do so with the aid of a built-in GPS and music storage in the watch. Also, both models of watches can track up to 39 different exercises (six auto-tracked).
Another fitness benefit worth talking about is that both watches use a built-in heart rate monitor to give data on stress levels. With this, you can get an alert to rest when it seems you are overworking yourself.
And just like the Apple Watch’s Breathe app, Samsung’s breathing exercises help you monitor your heart rate.
OS and Power
Both the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active run Tizen, an OS peculiar to only selected watches, including Samsung devices. It has access to over 60,000 watch faces and some apps on the store.
As for power, both watches have a 1.15GHz dual-core Exynos 9110 chipset and 4GB of storage. In terms of RAM, the Galaxy Watch comes with either 768MB or 1.5GB (for the LTE model) while the Watch Active comes with 750MB.
