The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is now available for pre-order in the UK, and as it turns out, UK customers will get the smartwatch a few days earlier than those residing in the US. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 has a shipping date set for September 20 on the official Samsung UK portal, whereas in other markets including the US, the wearable is expected to start shipping on September 23.UK customers who will pre-order the Galaxy Watch Active 2 before September 19 will receive a Wireless Charger Duo for free as a bonus. The accessory is valued at £90 and can be used to wirelessly recharge both a smartphone and the smartwatch simultaneously. The offer is available for the 40mm and 44mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 models regardless of their color, connectivity, or choice of materials (stainless steel or aluminum case).
Of note is that the September 20 shipping date is listed only alongside the LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch Active 2. The Bluetooth-only model, on the other hand, is accompanied by a “Get Stock Alert” button instead of a pre-order option, but the same pre-order bonus and September 19 deadline for the freebie seems to apply.In the UK, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 has a starting price of £269 for the 40mm Bluetooth model. The price can go as high as £419 for the 44mm LTE variant, so a pre-order bonus worth £90 is nothing to sneeze at. The UK might not be the only market to get an earlier-than-anticipated release so we’ll keep our eyes peeled. Still not convinced whether or not you should pre-order the new smartwatch?
