Samsung Galaxy S5 Active ready to take on the Canadian winter

Like the regular version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active comes with a heart rate monitor. And if you get caught in a blizzard, unable to plug into an outlet, you will be happy to have the Ultra Power Saving Mode on board. With this feature, you can go for 24 hours with just 10% of battery life remaining. Of course, you'll be limited to viewing a black and white display, and only be able to use certain apps.
In Canada, Bell is offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active starting today for $279.95 with a signed two-year pact, or $699.95 off-contract. TELUS is also expected to offer the handset later this year.

Another day, another GaLAGsy. $699 for the JunkWiz + Crap'O'LED combo. What a ripoff!

I wish Samsung had release already the S6, Note 4 is too big for me. Something like a rival to Z3 with the specs of Note 4, same size like s5. 1080p display calibrated like Alpha's and a great camera (better than Note 4), better low light shots. 3gb ram, 32gb at least, SD, remov. battery.

The GS6 looks like it's going to rock. Smaller Note 4 with the Galaxy Alpha performance and a 2k screen. I couldn't wait for it though and got the Alpha so I'll probably pass on the GS6 and maybe get the Z4 or Z5 compact.

Lol, now people wish to have a 6 month cycle but the majority complains when Sony does it... go figure... Anyway I am done waiting... I will replace my current Xperia Acro S for the similarly sized but miles ahead in most department, the Z3 Compact. Can't wait!

Really? Since when they release the S5 and now they just release the S5 Active. Why like that?

Put a cloth on you boy, you'll get cold. You think you're some model or something?
