Killer deal brings brand-new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 down to $200 with warranty
Because we're most likely still a few months away from the announcement of Samsung's next big wearable device and, well, we have no idea if we're going to get a fitness-first Galaxy Watch Active 3 or an unapologetic, ultra-high-end Galaxy Watch 2, it's probably not a bad idea to consider buying the slowly aging Galaxy Watch Active 2.
Even with dormant ECG monitoring and fall detection functionality, this Android and iOS-compatible bad boy arguably remains the best Apple Watch Series 5 alternative available today. Unfortunately, Samsung isn't exactly known for pricing its smartwatches as aggressively as other Apple rivals in this thriving industry, with the Galaxy Watch Active 2 normally up for grabs starting at 280 bucks.
Those with larger wrists need to spend an even heftier $300 or so on a 44mm variant, and unless you're looking to purchase both the second-gen Galaxy Watch Active and Samsung's second-gen true wireless earbuds, the company itself can't hook you up with any discount whatsoever at the time of this writing. Of course, that's what third-party retailers are for, and one of the most reputable ones in the US is currently holding a pretty much unbeatable sale.
If you hurry, you can save a whopping $100 on a 44mm Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 in your choice of Aqua Black or Pink Gold hues at B&H Photo Video. These are brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged items, obviously, which also means they're backed by a full 1-year warranty.
Said warranty comes from B&H rather than Samsung, though, as you're technically looking at "international" devices here that are not specifically designed or optimized for the US market. On the bright side, the only key feature you might be encountering issues with stateside as a result of that is Samsung Pay support. You also won't get a wall charger in this particular retail box, but those two things are definitely not worth a full Benjamin.
Meanwhile, it's clearly hard to argue with the value proposition of a $200 Galaxy Watch Active 2 sporting a large and sharp 1.4-inch Super AMOLED display, as well as a fast dual-core processor, reasonably large battery, swim-proof design made from robust aluminum, a built-in heart rate monitor, GPS functionality, and in-depth sleep tracking.
