Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is neck and neck with Apple Watch Series 4 in many aspects. However, when it comes to the audiobook listening feature, the Galaxy Watch and the Galaxy Watch Active seem to lag behind the competition. Listening to audiobooks on the wearable device when you are jogging or working out is a new fashion because it is phoneless and it perfectly combines exercising and learning.

The light and dynamic Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is supposed to be the best choice since it is more than phoneless but it feels nothing on your wrist. Can you use Audible on Galaxy Watch?
