Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 deal: what's so good about it?
In our Fit&Well awards announcement, we said "The best fitness watches don't just have the most features: in our style-conscious times, t's increasingly important that it looks good on your wrist, too.
"Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 does this with aplomb - we particularly love the digital bezel incorporated into the outer ring. But it's not a case of all style and no substance; those good looks are backed up by a host of downloadable apps and all the notification functionality you might expect from a top-tier smartwatch."
The Active 2 contains a built in sleep tracker and electrocardiogram that also monitors your stress levels. It counts calories expended, offers VO2 max and heart-rate monitoring and even allows you to send an alert from your watch if you experience a nasty fall during a workout. GPS is also enabled.
