I picked up one of these watches secondhand and I've been impressed. The battery life is surprisingly great -- averaging about 2 days between charges. I'm generally a traditionalist when it comes to watches, but I have certain scenarios where a smartwatch has been great; for example, using it for timers when exercising or phone-free Bluetooth music streaming when doing yard work.

A few things to note:

1. The watch's total diameter is 40mm, but there is a black border around the "usable" touchscreen portion, so it wears smaller than you might think when the screen is on. It looks like this is true of just about every smartwatch out there, so it's not a negative for this specific watch. In the traditional watch space, a 40mm case size is a good middle-ground and a 44mm case would be considered large for most people (lugs overhanging your wrist); however, when it comes to smartwatches, it might actually wear smaller than you'd expect due to the full face not being utilized. That said, I can't say how it compares to the 44mm model since I've never handled one.

2. I have a Samsung Galaxy watch, so its integration is as ideal as possible with it. Can't comment on how well it works with other Android phones.

3. From what I understand, the primary differences between this and the Active 2 is the addition of an SpO2 sensor. This watch (Active 1) receives the same OS update as the Active 2, so it can now use the same rotating virtual bezel function as the Active 2. This is where the black border on the screen comes into play, which is rather clever. I think I'd still prefer a physical bezel that can rotate, but that's apparently been eliminated by Samsung on the Active line.

4. The watch has a standard 20mm lug width, so no weird connectors or odd sizes. This makes buying replacement straps a cinch and lets you customize the watch to your liking for a reasonable cost.
Correction there is no spo2 sensor on active 2 either. There is an app for bp that you have to sideload by downloading the tizen studio and then calibrate to make it work. Its a port from the korean version. The biggest difference between this and the active 2, gear watch and the s3 frontier is this watch is missing the speaker so you can't make or take calls and talk through the watch.

The internal hardware is same in all gens of Samsung watched since the S3 frontier which in my opinion is still the best looking out of all. The Galaxy Watch 46mm has the biggest battery 470 mah compared to the 3xx on the other watches. Also since this watch active they have a newer heart rate sensor that is supposed to be capable of doing an ecg but FDA never approved it and so Samsung never really enabled it.

In my opinion I prefet the Galaxy watch 42 and 46 mm due to the rotating bezel more dressier looks, bigger battery and 22mm bands which are not only more comfortable but also looks great and far more easier to find( most 22 mm fossil bands fits). Only thing missing is the updated heard rate sensor with ecg which is not even enabled in the newer watch. Also due to the rotating bezel and the recessed screen the glass was much more protected and the flat screen allowed tempered glass screen protector. The curved glass on the actives and the colored bodies actually pretty easily scartches and you can't buff off the scratches on the metal surface with some metal polish is because it is painted. That's my overall experience of owning almost every Samsung watch!

I would recommend the 44mm for men with a normal wrist size.

Not worth it considering this is old generation the main problem being terrible battery life. You'll literally stop using it after a few days getting tired of charging it *AND* forgetting to charge *AND* forgetting to wear it once charged.

Do your self a favor get a crown cover. It will save your watch from alot of scratches and damage. The price is well worth it plus it offers great features for a good price.

I paid a little less than 100 more for the 44mm active 2. The sizes both fit fine so what would be a better deal?

I would take a look at the Fossil Gen 5 it has a 44mm and Uses Google Wear Os. If you love the Samsung OS, I know Sam's Club has for about $100 more.

I bought Fitbit versa 2 for 75. I'm not super active and more focused on notifications and ability to respond via watch. Is this a big step up?

Fitbit is more for fitness and battery life where Galaxy Active is more for technology and apps. Both will give you similar alerts

I prefer the 40mm since I play(ed) sports like bball and flag football so I didn't want to hit ppl with the watch by accident

I've had the Gear Sport for a few years now and the battery only lasts a day anymore. Can you buy replacement batteries? This is a good deal but I don't think you can go inside to look at them can you?
