Galaxy Watch Golf Edition
The golf course can be a tough place, which is why the Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is ready for anything. Samsung Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is water-resistant and its Super AMOLED display is so bright users can easily read it even on the sunniest or cloudiest days. The Black Sport Strap keeps the watch secure for accurate performance tracking, while the touch screen and rotating bezel make it easy to access calls, emails, and other notifications to keep connected. And with a long-lasting battery, there’s enough power to track all shots, so users can focus on the game.
Galaxy Watch Golf Active2 Golf Edition
The purposefully designed Galaxy Watch Active2 Golf Edition comes in a lightweight, sporty, aluminium body, with an exclusively developed watch face and two size and colour options — 44mm with an Aqua Black strap, and 40mm with Pink Gold strap. Both straps are made with Fluoroelastomer (FKM) material and feature a breathable design, ensuring a comfortable fit that will optimise performance.
The Galaxy Watch Active2 features a digital bezel to make it even more convenient to navigate while maximising the screen size. Directly on the beautifully curved Super AMOLED screen, the rotating touch bezel turns both clockwise and counter-clockwise to advance screens so users can easily select their favourite apps. Plus, the upgraded One UI offers a simple, clear and natural user experience for navigation.
• Galaxy Watch Golf Edition will be available in Silver (46mm).
• Galaxy Watch Active2 Golf Edition will be available in two shades and sizes, Aqua Black (44mm) and Pink Gold (40mm).
• Both products are available now from www.samsung.com/uk/galaxy-golf-edition, Amazon and selected retailers.
