The Samsung Watch Galaxy Active 2 is a compelling smartwatch, thanks to the clever mix of smartness and fitness features. From automatic tracking to listening to your favorite tracks directly from the watch, it lets you do a lot. And the digital rotating bezel makes the whole journey interesting. However, this design also makes this smartwatch vulnerable to bumps, scratches, and dings.
I have had so many instances when the watch body would bump accidentally on table ends and door frames (and induce a mini heart attack). Thankfully, all these can be easily averted if you invest in a case or cover for your watch.
The good thing about most of these protective cases and covers for the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is that they are slim and preserves the slim look of the watch.
If you are up for it, take a look at these protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. But before that,
- Should you switch to the Huawei Watch GT 2 over from the Samsung Galaxy Active 2?
- Here are the best Samsung Galaxy Active 2 leather straps
1. TPU All-Around Protective Case
Size: 40mm & 44mm
If you want your Galaxy Watch Active 2 to don different looks and colors, it’s time you checked out this 10-pack case by Wugongyan. These cases give you the flexibility to match the watch’s color with a like-color band, thus enhancing its looks even further. It wraps around the watch body, thereby protecting the sides and the watch body from harm. The case is made from TPU, making it easier to take it off/on.
The fit is great, and you do not have to worry about the watch body wobbling around the case. Since there’s an additional layer on top of the watch, you might have to press harder than usual when accessing the different menu items.
However, you have to keep in mind to take off the case and wipe the interiors after intensive workout stints since sweat and moisture tends to get trapped between the two layers.
2. Tensea Screen Protector & Case
If you plan to change the watch case once in a while, you should check out the 2-pack bumper case by Tensea. Like the previous case, this case comes with a protective screen. The TPU bumper that wraps around the case and safeguards the watch from scratches, dings, and bumps. The good thing is that all the cutouts are precise, and you won’t have issues in answering calls on your watch or replying to text messages.
It’s slim and sleek and doesn’t add bulk to the watch. And the shiny edges add to the look of the watch. All you need to do is team it up with a black band, and you will be sorted.
It’s not a waterproof case. You will see moisture retention from time to time, and you’ll have to wipe off the moisture manually. However, it’s not a big ask.
I have been using the Galaxy Active 2 for nearly a year now and more often than not, I find myself wiping off all the dirt and sweat after every workout session since the joints tend to hold on to salt and dirt.
3. EZCO 2-Pack Screen Protector & Case
Size: 40mm & 44mm
Another watch case that keeps your watch free from scratches and ugly marks is the one by EZCO. Similar to the one above, it’s a two-piece case. These bumper cases are easy to snap on, thanks to the flexible TPU material, and you can do so without taking off the watch. They stay in place and has a solid build.
The fit is good, and the good thing is that the digital bezels work like a charm, even with the case on.
The only drawback is that it adds a slight bulk to the smartwatch, and you might want to consider this point, especially if you have small wrists.
Again the usual rules apply here. You will have to wipe off sweat and moisture from underneath the screen.
This case has been received well by many users. If we were to go by Fakespot’s estimates, there are around 90% quality reviews.
4. MENEEA 3-Pack Case
The Meneea 3-Pack Case is the one for you if you do not want to go overboard with colors. These are available in three variants — Black, Silver, and Clear. Installation is quick and easy, and all you need to do snap them on from the top.
It fits like a glove, and you needn’t worry about losing the watch’s sleek design to the case. However, the sides tend to scratch a bit too easily. Considering the price and the fact that you have two more backups, makes it a slightly better deal. Plus, it doesn’t break and does its best to protect the watch body from any form
Like most of the cases in this list, you won’t have to take off the case for charging the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Neither will you have to unhook the bands to snap the case in position.
5. Ringke Air Sport Case
From the last couple of years, Ringke has been making a good name for itself for its clear cases for flagships like the Galaxy Note 20 or the OnePlus 8. Their cases are well made and are durable. The Ringke Air Sport Case is no exception. It’s slim, sleek, and beautifully wraps around the body of the watch. More importantly, it maintains the premium looks of the watch.
One major difference between this one and the cases above is that it doesn’t have a screen protector. Rather, the case has raised bezels along the edges which keeps the screen safe from scratches.
The buttons are covered with the same material and the odds are that you won’t feel any loss of feedback when they are pressed. The same holds for the digital rotating bezel as well, and this has been backed by several users.
Again, the same rule of cleaning moisture and other debris holds true. You will have to clean and wipe the case once in a while.
It’s available in two variants—Black and Clear
6. Spigen Liquid Air Armor
Another name that is quite popular in the cases and covers industry is Spigen. Spigen covers are both durable and stylish. All these are true for the Liquid Air Armor Case for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 as well. It is a low profile case and safeguards the watch body from regular wear and tear. Simultaneously, the case has the cutouts at the right places to not hinder the watch functionality.
Like its counterpart above, it’s easy to take off/on. Though the buttons are covered, the feedback isn’t lost between the watch and the cover.
This case’s reception has been so great so far. Fakespot estimates that around 90% of these reviews are trustworthy and reliable.
Wrap It Up!
With a cover on top, you can lay aside worries of any damage to your Active. These are lightweight and slim cases, and the odds are that they will last you a long time.
Do note that they won’t help you much if you work with heavy machinery or stay in proximity to one. In such cases, you can check out the Unicorn Beetle Pro series by Supcase. This one is a rugged cover and is tougher than some of the cases mentioned above. The only issue is that you will have to sacrifice the slim profile of your smartwatch.
