I am struggling to find the green samsung watch active in the UK and in the US it is also a little cheaper. If I was to buy one in the US would I be able to use it as normal in the UK would there be any issues with any features or charging etc? 

Thanks!

@xIndiaa: Samsung devices have varying software from region to region for compatibility purposes therefore you may experience issues with services in this region such as Google Play when using a US device. Similarly the warranty is also regional therefore you would not be able to utilise any warranty services in the UK. The available colours for preorders in the UK are currently black, silver and rose gold. https://shop.samsung.com/uk/Telecom/Mobile-Phone/Galaxy-Watch-Active/p/SM-R500NZKABTU.

@Funky1211: Samsung has a regional warranty policy, so devices purchased in the US have a warranty valid in that region only, as well as differing software and hardware to the UK/EU models.

So, if that is the case, I should be fine getting an Active2 from Germany with manufacturers warranty at half the price, and it still be covered, but more importantly function OK in the UK?
