You can listen to your favorite music wirelessly for up to 11 hours with the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Black 44mm Aluminum + Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Black. You don't need to take your phone with you, because you listen directly from the Active2 watch. The watch is mainly an extension of your phone. You can make phone calls with it as long as it's connected to your phone via Bluetooth. This is useful if your phone is in the other room or in your bag. You receive messages on the watch, which you can respond to right away from your wrist. Not with quick replies, but with voice control, or via the small keyboard. With the touch edge, you can easily scroll through all the apps from the Galaxy Store. Here you can add Uber, Google Maps, or Strava. The earbuds last 11 hours on a full battery. That's 5 hours longer than their predecessor, the Galaxy Buds.
Note The Active2 doesn't always work well with an iPhone. Depending on the model and iOS version, you may not always be able respond to messages or use the Samsung Health app.

The watch works really well on its own, however it can be a bit tricky when trying to manage it via the iOS app. Updating and downloading software can also be improved.

The Galaxy Watch Active2, is one of the best purchases that I've ever made in wearable technology. It delivers with more than adequate battery life, far superior comfort when compared to other products, a feature set that will appease most so-called "Geeks" such as myself, and the availability to add more features and/or applications via the Galaxy app store. The new customizable watch face feature makes the creation of customizable watch faces easy and simple. With just a snap of your clothing, and multiple watch faces are created for you that match your outfit. I also appreciate the much slimmer and sleeker design, when compared to the regular Galaxy Watch. With that, I can confidently say that (at least in my opinion) the Watch Active2 is the most fashionable, functional and flexible. (The Three Fs, as I call it.)
It is fashionable, due to its sleek glass, (in my case) aluminum housing, and unobtrusive thickness that is no thicker (if not, thinner) than your average premium analog watch.
It is functional, due to the fact that you have all the basic necessities that any digital watch should have PLUS, step tracking, workout tracking, heart rate monitoring, upcoming electrocardiogram capability, text messaging, the ability to accept, decline, and create phone calls, pay for things using Samsung pay, find your phone, the creation and cancellation of alarms and reminders, the ability to check the weather, and have music playback controls (also including track selection), just to name a few. (And I don't think I really need to explain why I think it's so flexible).
