Did you miss out on some bargain buys during Cyber weekend? Fear not! Amazon just marked down this beloved Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch from $250 to $149 (that's 40 percent off!). If you're still on the hunt for a great gift, look no further. With nearly 38,000 five-star reviews, this feature-filled fitness tracker is the answer. 

One savvy shopper says, "I can confidently say that (at least in my opinion) the Watch Active2 is the most fashionable, functional and flexible." On top of its health monitoring capabilities, this smart watch can also alert a user to phone calls, text messages and upcoming appointments so they never miss a thing.

A personal trainer always at your side

Along with the standard step and calorie counter, this Samsung Galaxy Active 2 smart watch is equipped with built-in pace coaching. Whether you're training for a marathon or looking to achieve a 12-minute mile, this pocket-size trainer can help. The watch will offer real-time actionable advice to improve your stride and speed. On top of that, it automatically starts tracking seven types of activities (like walking, rowing, swimming and even elliptical training) and users can manually track others. Plus, the watch will automatically alert you if it detects a too high or too low heart rate so you can adjust your activity accordingly.

One smart swimmer shares, "I walk my dog twice a day and swim laps 3-4 days a week. The fitness on the watch automatically detects my walks with my dog and, when swimming, the screen is super bright and easy to read in the pool... With these workouts and always-on screen activated, this watch easily lasts me the whole day — something that can't be said about other smart watches." 

Feeling tense? Use the stress tracker to get guided breathing exercises to help infuse some calm into your day. On top of that, a built-in sleep tracker offers valuable insights on sleep patterns and how to get higher quality Zs. 

This watch will even remind you to wash your hands. It can automatically detect when you're doing so and will start a countdown to make sure you do a thorough job. A particularly handy feature to have these days.

Form meets function

Not only is this watch helpful for telling time, monitoring activity, getting notifications at a glance and more, but it's also built to look good while doing so. You can actually use it to create a coordinating background to match each day's outfit. Just snap a pic of your dress' pattern, say, and the watch will put together a face design to match. Now that's some smart styling. 

Plus, it's light enough to wear anywhere comfortably. A five-star reviewer reports, "It has been at least 10 years since I last wore a watch regularly — and now I am wearing this one 24/7 (other than during showers/getting ready) and I'm sleeping in it happily."

The reviews say it all

With nearly 38,000 five-star reviews, you can rest easy knowing this will be a well-received gift. A former Fitbit user shares that she and her husband have found the Samsung to be more accurate. They're so impressed with this watch, in fact, that they say they're "expecting to find a button we can push allowing this watch to jump off our wrists, vacuum the floors, empty the cat box and cook dinner. Well, maybe that's too high of an expectation, but [these watches] are unreal!"
