It's newer but probably not better. This is the cutdown sport version....so no taking calls on it and no rotating bezel to scroll through lists, menus, messages etc. But it's much cheaper. Samsung watches don't have Google Pay, they have Samsung Pay, which not many UK banks are signed up to, and even that won't work on this phone coz it's not UK region. The Action 2 is out very soon...it has capacitive bezel for scrolling and you'll be able to answer/make calls...but costs more.
I've tried most of these and keep going back to my Samsung Galaxy Gear Sport from a couple of years ago although looking forward to giving the Active 2 a go.
BTW, I really wish Samsung would settle on a logical naming formula for its wearables!

Apps for Tizen are few. There's Spotify and you can download music to the watch which is nice. Haven't found a good mapping app.
You can change the region so that Samsung Pay works.

I did this on my watch from eGlobal. Wasn't too difficult.

FYI I use Samsung pay with HSBC, Starling and American Express in the UK with no problems. Not tried any others.

Just a dumb question. Does Samsung pay on these watches work happily in tescos or other supermarkets? Do you ever need to use your card as a backup or for extra security?
