Will Active 2 get ecg and fall detection? Will I be forced to buy a 3?

I will be furious if I am forced to buy the active 3 to get features that were promised on the 2. My watch is only 6 months old.

From what I've read, is that the Active 2 will have the hardware they promised. Just some software changes are needed in the next few updates.

I'm in the same boat.  I wonder if there has been any thought given to starting a class action lawsuit! 

I'm paying for something that I did not get.  We should demand our money back at least.

I doubt that would fly. It was advertised as having the hardware which would be activated at a later date. It would be different if they had advertised it as having those features active out of the box.

Fitbit was just as bad and they just had a thing on the news that Apple is delaying shipping if you ordered an iPhone Also, the Versa didn't hold a candle to Active2.

The new watch has the exact same set of sensors as the GWA2 so the likely answer is yes. I think we're all annoyed that Samsung released a new watch before fully delivering on their promises for the last one.

Absolutely. The only solace is that I don't believe it's actually activated on the new watch yet either.
