Samsung Galaxy Watch Active Review: Google applications will reach Samsung watches

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active Review

Despite the competition between Samsung and Google, it seems that two of the most relevant applications for watches will reach the Galaxy Watch and Gear.

Yesterday Samsung took the opportunity to present its new watch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, by surprise. This watch is an unexpected renovation, as the first generation of Watch Active has been presented very recently.

In one of Samsung’s latest promotional videos, the existence of two very important Google applications has been revealed, as well as the existence of a Twitter application for Samsung watches.

YouTube, Google translator and Twitter: the weapons of the Galaxy Watch Active 2

 

 

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active Review

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active does not seem to have been a successful product. Samsung announced this watch on February 20 , while its successor was announced on August 5,  less than 6 months between the first and second generation. Of the original Watch Active we did not like the absence of the rotating bezel, and possibly this is the reason for such a rapid renewal, to include a successor touch bezel.

Apart from all this debate, today we know new data about the Samsung watch, and it is that in an advertising spot of the brand we can see that the Galaxy Watch Active includes new applications. And, surprise, they are very useful Google services, YouTube and the Google translator.

One of the great weaknesses of being a Google competition is the difficulty in accessing certain services of the company. In the same way that in its day we saw the absence of native Google applications on Windows due to Google’s own interest in deploying them on Chrome OS, something similar happens with Tizen for smartwatches, which is a competition for Wear OS makes it difficult for Google to want to narrow ties

For now, it seems that the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will bring the translator from Google and YouTube as applications integrated into the system, being the first step of great importance for these watches. Twitter too.

It is expected that these applications reach more Samsung watches, but for now, compatibility seems to be a temporary exclusive of the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
