Just because Samsung has recently released what may well be not only its best smartwatch ever but also the greatest overall Apple Watch alternative to date, that doesn’t mean the company is looking to leave older wearable devices out in the cold already when it comes to software support.
There are lives at stake here
While the other newly added health tracking features are unlikely to save any lives, their potential to improve your fitness is… pretty well-documented, providing advanced “Running Analysis” with detailed metrics like asymmetry, regularity, stiffness, vertical oscillation, and ground contact time, as well as so-called VO2 max readings indicating the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise to increase your endurance.
Convenience improvements galore
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is also getting a slew of capabilities aimed at helping you live “more conveniently”, starting with smart replies. Basically, whenever you receive a message and even an image, the smartwatch will provide “suggested responses” based on text analysis and “advanced photo recognition technology” to save you some time.
You can also save time by actually viewing photos and emoticons, as well as checking your entire chat history, on the sharp AMOLED display on your wrist rather than constantly turning to your connected Android handset or iPhone to keep up with lengthy conversations.
Then you have support for both AR Emoji Stickers and Bitmoji Stickers with no need to switch between your smartwatch to your smartphone for “fun replies” to your messages, as well as scroll capture functionality automatically sending screenshots taken on your wrist to your pocket.
