Currently, there are many types of smartwatches available.
Among them, I want to introduce the Galaxy Watch Active 2, which I purchased after comparing its appearance, battery life, and functionality and struggling with the decision.
While the Apple Watch is also good, those who want to differentiate themselves should definitely consider the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
・Do I need a smartwatch?
・I want to be admired by those around me.
・I want to easily manage my health.
・I want a smartwatch that can be used for business.
Smartwatches are not cheap, so it’s difficult to buy them without knowing their necessity or appeal.
I also decided to purchase it after struggling with the decision.
So, I will convey the appeal that I actually learned by using it.
I actually boasted to my friends and they were all envious.

To cut to the chase, I really like the Galaxy Watch Active 2!
It’s so cool, isn’t it?
At least ten times cooler than what you see in the pictures!
There are so many types of watch faces that I’ll introduce some of them later in the article.
The specs are well-balanced too.
Compared to the HUAWEI WATCH GT2, the battery life is incredibly good.
If you don’t need diverse functions and have a great battery life, I think a normal watch would suffice.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 fully meets the requirements I have for a smartwatch in terms of appearance, battery life, and functionality.
Points to Consider When Choosing a Smartwatch
- Battery life
- Waterproof and dustproof performance
These are somewhat similar to how you would choose a normal watch.
Among them, 『appearance』 and『 functionality 』are significant factors that increase the appeal of a smartwatch.
Do You Really Need a Smartwatch?
You don’t really need one, but I think it can add something extra to your life.
You can show it off to others and use it as a conversation starter.
It can also help you manage your daily health.
I believe it’s something that fulfills the “nice to have” aspect of life.
What Makes the Galaxy Watch Active 2 More Attractive Than a Normal Watch?
- No cost for battery replacement
- You can change the watch face and band, so you won’t get tired of it.
- It has many functions.
- You can use it for business or private occasions by changing the watch face and band.
- It can differentiate you from others.
Comparison Between HUAWEI WATCH GT2 and Galaxy Watch Active 2
At first, I was torn between getting the HUAWEI WATCH GT2, which boasts an overwhelming battery life.
However, what made me choose the Galaxy Watch Active 2 was its rich functionality.
If it has this much functionality, isn’t a watch with good battery life sufficient?
That’s how I started feeling.
As for the Galaxy Watch Active 2, you can install additional apps through the Galaxy Store, and it has no shortage of functions.
If you want to enjoy and show off your smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is the way to go.
Types of Galaxy Watch Active 2
Galaxy Watch Active 2 Included Items
It comes in a box like this:
※The brown leather band is a separately purchased item.
If you’re looking for a similar band, how about this one?
Several Types of Watch Faces for the Galaxy Watch Active 2
There are so many to choose from that it’s hard to decide.
Here are some free ones in particular.
What’s It Like to Actually Use the Galaxy Watch Active 2?
I bought the silver one, and it has a glossy finish, making it very cool!
You can change the band by purchasing it separately, so you can use it without getting bored by changing it every season.
There are also many types of watch faces available.
There’s a feature that changes the screen to match your outfit, but to be honest, I wonder if I’ll use it. Would fashion experts use it to that extent?
I use it from the morning after a full charge and it still has about 60% left, so it should last for two days with normal use.
If you use GPS, messaging, calling, and music to the fullest, a day is probably the limit.
As for charging, it’s easy to just put it on the charger, so I don’t feel any stress.
Is the Functionality Rich?
You can install new apps through the Galaxy Store, so it’s quite rich.
The app for sleep management is convenient to use.
It’s linked to your smartphone and graphs the time zones for REM sleep and non-REM sleep.
In addition, there’s a vibration function for your alarm, so you can wake up cleanly without any sound.
You can check notifications from LINE and other apps on the watch face, so you don’t have to take out your smartphone. You can’t send messages from here, but you can reply to messages sent to you.
Also, I found the heartbeat measurement and stress measurement functions interesting. When you think you’ve had too much to drink at a drinking party, you can measure your heart rate, and it usually exceeds 100 bpm. It’s fun to lend the watch to someone who says they’re not drunk yet and measure it.
There are many apps that allow you to operate your smartphone from your watch and take pictures with the camera.
It’s fun to look for your favorite apps. By the way, this app has both free and paid versions.

Disappointing Points of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Expectations for the Future!
I tried many things, but I felt that the map apps weren’t quite there yet.
As the apps are updated, I believe that this map app will be improved, making it the best smartwatch.
The Galaxy Watch Active 3 has also been released.
Thank you for reading until the end.
Initially, I thought I didn’t need a smartwatch, but after using it, I found it cool, convenient, and most of all, fun!

May the day of everyone who came to the Irucacafe today be a happy one^^
