We are excited to announce the Under Armour Edition of the new Samsung Galaxy Active2 watch! This new watch is designed for people that love to run and want to improve their running fitness and form with unique features that provide a connected running experience.
Exclusive Watch Face
As a unique feature to the Under Armour Edition, MapMyRun comes pre-downloaded to the watch! Simply tap on our logo and the app will open onto the watch. Once the app is activated, 6 months of MVP will be applied to your MapMy account.
Tap on the date to get to the calendar; the outside ring changes with the time of day.
Real-Time Form Coaching
The Form Coaching feature will monitor your cadence during eligible activities. The optimal range is based on several factors, including pace, and adapts throughout the workout. The watch will gather cadence from either your UA Connected Footwear or the accelerometer on your watch.
Read our help center article here and learn how to connect your shoes to your watch.
If your cadence falls outside of the range, then the watch will notify you through haptic, audio, and/or visual cues. The audio component will include tips for correcting the cadence. To change these preferences, tap on the activity type to access the Workout Setup screen, pictured below.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know I purchased the Under Armour Edition?
The Under Armour Edition will have a UA logo on the watch face and the band. It will be sold in a black box and the non-UA watch will be sold in white.
If I purchased the regular Galaxy Watch Active2, can I download the UA watch face?
The watch face will only be available for the Under Armour Edition, but you can still download MapMyRun on your device.
I don't hear or see Form Coaching updates. What am I doing wrong?
Form Coaching will be enabled by default. To change your settings, head to the Workout Setup by tapping on the activity type. You can edit your preferences for feedback here and turn audio coaching on.
Once your workout is started, swipe from right to left to access the different workout stats. Cadence will be displayed on the third screen.
