Adding a 4G LTE version could prove to be one of the most important additions to the device, allowing you to stream music and perform other tasks without having to lug around your smartphone. 

To whet your appetite a bit more, Samsung on Tuesday unveiled a teaser video showcasing the Galaxy Active 2 alongside its new Galaxy Tab S6. The video only showed the devices in shadows, but the watch clearly has a round screen and a more traditional watch-like design. 

Samsung didn't say in the video which features we can expect or how much it'll cost. Alas, we'll need to wait until next week to find that out.
