The UI from its first look is clean and refreshes the watch experience. The Galaxy Watch Active will make use of gestures and swipes to navigate through UI. The only buttons on the watch are present on the right-hand side of the frame.
The dark background on the UI gives a bezel-less look, and it will enhance the battery life of the watch, as well. Anyways, we will miss the conventional rotating bezels on the phone. It provides a more premium look in comparison to modern design.
The watch faces in the leaks focus on activity-tracking by putting your daily goals front and center. Also, the tracker will automatically recognize certain activities similar to yours and track them without the need for you to initialize a workout.
