SAMSUNG Galaxy Watch Active2: Staying Track with Your Fitness Goals

Keeping track of your well being, your daily health is a fitness goal. Samsung can help you you keep track of that health objective with one active smartwatch you can depend on for your health and well being daily.

These days, more Filipinos are encouraged to pursue healthier lifestyles on top of excelling in the office. These young corporate warriors belong to the New Work Tribe, who want to achieve career milestones while having the time to pursue their health goals. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 functions as a life coach that can guide fitness enthusiasts with their health and work goals.
 

Here are some ways the smartwatch can guide even the busiest individual to a healthier life:
 
1.) Stay fit and healthy with a workout coach
 
Those looking to start their health journey will benefit from the Galaxy Watch Active2’s fitness tracker. With the smartwatch, they can monitor how many calories they burned as well as their pace in every workout. It automatically tracks physical activities, such as walking, running, cycling, and swimming. Additionally, it can record equipment-based routines like elliptical and rowing as well as dynamic workouts. Runners can also use the updated Running Coach to get actionable advice in real-time. At the end of the week, the smartwatch compiles all the information so the user can see comprehensive insights to help them plan future workouts.
 
The Galaxy Watch Active2 also serves as a great health monitoring companion as it keeps an eye on the user’s heartbeat and sends alerts when it is above or below normal. It also has a fall detection feature which notifies the user of any hard fall and sends SOS alerts to assigned contacts for help.
 
2.) Relax with a wellness partner
 
The Galaxy Watch Active2 is hard at work even when the wearer is resting. It keeps track of stress levels in real-time through the Samsung Health app and offers guided breathing exercises perfect for destressing. The smartwatch also monitors sleep patterns and provides users with unlimited access to guided meditation programs through its integration with the popular sleep app, Calm.
 

 
3.) Achieve work goals with a smart assistant
 
Workers can be on top of daily tasks even without their smartphone. The Galaxy Watch Active2 is an LTE-powered life assistant which can take calls and messages even when the user is exercising. The smartwatch also allows them to enjoy social media easier through the SNS Viewer, giving access to various social media platforms to keep them updated with the latest news and trends.

The watch face can also be tailored based on a color extraction algorithm to further personalize it and match to the user’s outfit.

GCash makes investing possible with P50

 
Filipinos can now kickstart their investment journey for the price of a donut or a cup of milk tea, thanks to leading mobile wallet GCash, which is bringing investment to the mobile wallet.
 
Invest Money, a feature in the GCash app, is an online platform that allows users to invest in mutual funds straight from their smartphones for a minimum of only P50, making it the cheapest and most accessible investment vehicle in the country.
 
The price of entry is roughly the value of a fancy donut at Krispy Kreme or half the price of a large milk tea, a come-on for beginners in investments or those afraid to put their hard-earned money at risk.
 
Traditional investments, on the other hand, require a minimum capital of P5,000 to P10,000.
 
As of October, GCash users have opened 432,000 Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITF) accounts in the Peso Money Market Fund of GCash’s partner provider ATRAM Trust Corp., surpassing the number of retail UITF accounts in the Philippine banking system, according to Mynt, the company behind GCash.
 
ATRAM Trust Corp., the first stand-alone trust corporation in the Philippines, pioneered global feeder funds in the country, providing Filipinos access to offshore investments in the United States, Europe, Asia and other emerging markets. The firm manages 13 UITFs.
 
“The figures indicate that more Filipinos are now trying to grow their money through Invest Money because the usual barriers for investing have been eliminated—the cost has been cut and the complex details of the investment process have also been removed,” said JF Darre, Chief Data Officer and Head of Financial Services at Mynt.
 
Aside from not requiring a large amount of money, GCash also does not ask interested investors to go to a bank to open an account or submit documents such as tax returns and payslips. All it takes to become an investor is to download the GCash app, register and answer a few questions for verification with just a few taps on the mobile phone.
 
With the Invest Money feature, users can also monitor closely the performance of their investments and redeem them whenever and wherever they want.
 
To make investing through the mobile wallet app more rewarding and convenient, GCash said it was working to add more mutual fund options, such as Bond Fund and Equity Fund.
 
“We are also working on adding more functionality to the app and creating a better user experience to make investing a more enjoyable habit for Filipinos,” Darre said.
