Meet Your New Run Coach – The Smartwatch That Connects To Your Running Shoes

There has never been a better time to lace up, strap on your watch and run. This because one of the greatest tech breakthroughs in health, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition, has arrived.

Meet the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2

The Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition is the product partnership that runners have been waiting for. Now, armed with just a watch connected to your running shoes and without the need for a phone, you can do what you couldn’t do before. Cadence-based, real-time form coaching and Premium access to the world’s largest fitness community – MapMyRun – create an ecosystem experience that brings runners accurate data, more intuitive coaching and better overall exercise experiences. It also comes with six months of free MapMyRun Premium Membership access, with training plans.

How it works

Exclusively on Galaxy Watch Active2 Under Armour Edition, when the smartwatch is paired with the UA 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 will 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 are running based on the personalised feedback you receive. Post-workout, you receive in-depth form analysis and detailed coaching tips on your smartphone, giving you a perspective on running form that is not available in any other product.

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 it 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.
