How to unlock all the benefits

When the Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition smartwatch is paired with the Under Armour HOVR running shoes, you get real-time stats on stride length and real-time form coaching – improving your overall fitness performance and technique as if running alongside a coach.

Using data from Galaxy Watch Active2 or from Under Armour Connected Footwear, you’ll see visual feedback and hear audio cues during workouts, which will help you improve your stride, maintain your pace and continue on the path to conquering your fitness goals.

With real-time coaching based on data collected from the watch, you can also adjust your form as you’re running based on the personalised feedback you receive.

During workouts, the watch display will optimise for key data such as heart rate, pace and form – so you can view real-time stats to track your progress against the plan.

And the watch can also be effortlessly paired with the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, powered by AKG. This allows you to hear audio coaching cues throughout your workout to guide you towards your goals or simply to listen to pre-loaded music.

After workouts, you can connect to your smartphone, to see more detailed workout reports for added insights. Now that’s progress and every reason to stay one-step ahead of the game.

Find the perfect watch for you! The stainless-steel Galaxy Watch Active2 pairs with Android devices, while the aluminium watch pairs with Android and iOS compatible devices.
