Samsung has unveiled an exclusive Under Armour edition of its recently announced Galaxy Watch Active2, which is specifically designed for dedicated runners.
The Galaxy Watch Active2 expands on the company’s partnership with Under Armour to provide a connected running experience via unique features found on the latest version of the smartwatch.
It comes in a lightweight, sporty, aluminium body, with an exclusively developed watch face and two size options – the 44mm with black strap and the 40mm with mod gray strap.
Australian pricing and availability will be announced closer to the local launch date.
“The special Under Armour Edition will help people enjoy their running experience, improving their overall well-being and connecting them seamlessly to their digital devices,” said Woncheol Chai, senior vice-president and head of product strategy team, mobile communication business, Samsung.
“I am very excited to be able to bring together our philosophy of balanced wellness with the athletic prowess of Under Armour exclusively for Galaxy users.”
The Galaxy ecosystem experience on the new smartwatch offers faster fitness insights, more intuitive coaching, and more comprehensive workouts accessible directly from the wrist.
It also features cadence based real-time form coaching and premium access to the global fitness community via MapMyRun.
Using data from the smartwatch or from Under Armour Connected Footwear, users will see visual feedback and hear audio cues during workouts.
“Every product we design is built around the mission to make all athletes better, and we are excited to continue to push the limits of performance and technology through our relationship with Samsung,” said Paul Fipps, chief digital officer at Under Armour.
“The introduction of the Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition, combined with our UA HOVR connected footwear and unique MapMyRun experience, will help runners improve their running form and ultimately their performance.”
