wheres active 2 LTE and why a big price jump from bluetooth version????

why isnt the active 2 LTE available for purchase? and why is there such a big price difference from the bluetooth version? the galaxy watch price difference is $50 but the active 2 price difference is $150!!! that doesnt even make sense Screenshot_20191017-150710_Chrome.jpg

Why buy the LTE version anyway I have the Galaxy watch active 1st Gen since June and I love it.. it stays connected with my Galaxy s10e never any trouble.

I prefer having the option to leave my phone and stay connected.

It's also stainless steal with the LTE version... so price increase for better material.

Interesting...the price is usually as you say $50 difference, but not more than that.  Have you checked carrier's websites to see for how much they are selling the watch, so you could compare?

the way I see it is LTE capability and material difference (aluminum and stainless)

Things are changing some people dont like the aluminum model and have been asking for stainless steel like apple does. So now we have it. Theres the option now.

It's absolutely ridiculous that the LTE version is "sold out" and not even available for purchase on backorder. I read somewhere that the Active 2 Watch came out only 6 months after the original Active Watch. So how long do they expect us to wait to order the LTE version of the Active 2 knowing that an upgrade may be in the near future. I have the original Galaxy Watch and I was going to purchase the LTE Active 2. The longer they wait to make it available the more likely I'm inclined just to wait and see what they do with a Galaxy Watch 2.

that's a really good point. I have the galaxy watch LTE also. i wanted the active 2 LTE because it's not as heavy. I like being able to leave my phone and still stay connected but LTE does drain the battery significantly . my galaxy watch dies in 5 hours. I took the LTE off for now but I'd like to see if I only use it when I need it and stay on bluetooth when I dont, if that will preserve the battery. and maybe be better on the active 2. but I cant find it anywhere. i tried getting it from tmobile.
