The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the watch's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion starts immediately and is ongoing until it is completely cleaned away
First do not try to charge or to turn on your watch and then remove the battery as soon as possible from the watch to minimize any further damage.
Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the watch and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+ (available at electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. If possible do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain additives and is not as effective. If you do have to use it check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the percentage of IPA the better
Here is a link that describes the process. Electronics Water Damage
As always with electronics, especially surface mounted pcb be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board. Remove the shields that may be covering some components as the water may have got in under there. The ends of any flex cables and their connectors need to be cleaned as well
Hopefully after you have done all this the watch might possibly work correctly again.

Can you press and hold the power button until rebooting comes up on the screen?
It continues to appear even without pressing anything

When rebooting appears press the power button a few times, hopefully another screen will appear. Use the power button to select recovery and then hold the power button to reset the watch back to factory.
Is there any signs of condensation inside the screen or the sensors on the back by the way?
The Active watch 2 is supposed to be ‘waterproof’ to a depth of 50 metres. Also you are supposed to be able to wear it in the shower which is hot water. I wouldn’t open the watch just yet, I’d contact Samsung support and tell them their waterproof watch has water damage and ask for it to be replaced. As long as there is no damage to the screen or the back I can’t see them being able to say no. Unless you pressed one of the buttons whilst it was under water.
@strongbow There were just signs of corrosion but no condensation. Cleaning everything made the watch work again
