We reported two days ago that Samsung’s next-gen Galaxy Watch Active 2 has passed its FCC test and that the report revealed that Samsung has equipped the smartwatch with a bunch of powerful features such as a new ECG sensor. Well, it looks like the South Korean based tech giant is determined to make Galaxy Watch Active 2 a success and the reason why we are saying that is because Samsung has teamed up with Under Armor in order to create a special edition of the smartwatch.
Samsung Partners with Under Armor
Samsung recently hosted the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 10 media press conference and that is where the third version of Galaxy Watch Active 2 was announced. Samsung said that the special edition of the smartwatch has been designed in partnership with Under Armor and that it supports a Bluetooth connection to smartphones. On the downside of things, the smartwatch will not feature LTE.
Galaxy Watch Active 2
The first thing that we want to mention about the Under Armor edition of Galaxy Watch Active 2 is that the smartwatch will be $30 more expensive than the standard model which costs $309. Moreover, Samsung said that this version of the smartwatch will ship with a bunch of pre-loaded software that brings integration to Under Armor’s fitness ecosystem.
Under Armor Apps
With that being said, the special edition of Galaxy Watch Active 2 that costs $30 more will feature all Under Armor apps such as the highly popular MapMyRun for example. To make things even better, Samsung is also offering a six-months membership to Under Armor’s MVP version of MapMyRun which normally costs $6 per month. The last thing that we want to note is that the smartwatch will automatically pair with the HOVR shoes designed by Under Armor.
