Designed for the active and the adventurous, the Galaxy Xcover 2 is ready for the outdoors. Not only it is dust, sand, and water-resistant, but it can also monitor your workout and training with its Cardio Trainer Pro app. That put aside, the rest is rather modest: A dual-core 1GHz CPU and a 5-megapixel main camera.
