Samsung recently launched Galaxy Watch Active2 in the U.S. Now the company has launched a special edition of its Galaxy Watch Active 2 which is dubbed as Galaxy Watch Active 2 Under Armour Edition. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition will be available in the fall of 2019 at Samsung.com, UA.com and major retailers.
