The Galaxy Watch Active is waterproof up to 5ATM, so you can hop in the shower and even jump in the pool. You can customize its look with 20mm interchangeable bands.
The watch features a 1.1” AMOLED display (360 x 360px) with Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The software is Tizen OS 4.0 running on an Exynos 9110 chipset with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage.
