I am currently deciding to either buying a Garmin or the Watch Active 2. The main deciding factor right now for me is if I am able to connect the Watch Active 2 with Garmin. Does anyone know if this is possible to do or should I just buy a Garmin to be safe?
I've had both, and your answer is "sort of". If you use a 3rd party app, like Fitness Syncher, you can copy over your activities into Garmin Connect. You won't get all of the Garmin data, but the basics (time, speed, pace, and HR data for the activity) but if you're looking for sleep, step totals, all day Heart Rate, that's not going to happen. Both Samsung, and Garmin have semi-locked ecosystems, and honestly don't play nice with each other.
