Garmin Venu 2 Plus


The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a Venu 2 with a slightly trimmer frame and some new smartwatch-style features. But how good is it?

Tidier, slicker design than the original Venu 2 ; Excellent fitness tracking depth and versatility ; Can take/make calls

Speaker is quiet and thin ; No significant improvements to actual fitness tracking skills ; Digital assistant support is limited and clunky

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a Venu 2 with a slightly trimmer frame and some new smartwatch-style features. None of which are essential, but may be enough to sway you over to team Garmin if you’re deciding between a smartwatch and a fitness watch. The...

Garmin Venu 2 Plus review: Voice comes to Garmin


Garmin has updated its smartwatch to support voice functions. How does Siri or Google Assistant add to the Garmin Venu 2 Plus?

All the skills of Garmin's sport platform ; Quality design ; Great display ; Voice control functions

One size only ; Voice control easily confused ; Lacks speaker & headphone control

The Plus version of the Venu 2 takes the foundation of the original and expands it with voice assistance (via a connected phone). That increases the number of smartwatch functions available, but there are some downsides to using voice. That said,...

Garmin Venu 2 Plus review


The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is as close as any Garmin wearable has been to becoming a fully-fledged smartwatch

In-depth fitness tracking and analysis ; Can take calls and access virtual assistant ; Stylish, understated design ; Up to a week of battery life

Workout UI isn’t user-friendly ; Need multiple companion apps on your phone ; No LTE model ; Lack of non-fitness apps

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a great all-rounder if you’re a fitness fan, with in-depth workout tracking and analysis across multiple sports, custom multi-week workout schedules and excellent performance from the HR monitor and GPS. However, fitness...

Garmin Venu 2 Plus


The Garmin Venu 2 Plus makes a strong play towards the smartwatch side of the market by offering a solid contingent of features without skimping on the that for which they are known best.

AMOLED touchscreen, great run tracking, voice assistant integration, Bluetooth calling, on-screen coaching, strong battery life

Not good at tracking naps, onscreen navigation could be made easier, expensive, have to use two apps

Garmin Venu 2 Plus Review: Premium in All the Right Ways | Digital Trends


The Garmin Venu 2 Plus smartwatch is a premium wearable and Garmin's first watch that works with your voice assistant.

Rock-solid connectivity

High price

“The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a premium smartwatch in every way, including the price. But when you factor in rock-solid connectivity, a ton of data, and voice assistant control, it earns its price tag.”

Only one 43mm size option ; No LTE version

Expensive ; Button press required for voice assistant

Garmin Venu 2 Plus vs Garmin Epix: A Very Detailed Comparison


This might sound like an oddly quirky comparison, but if the comments section the last week is any indication – there are far more folks than I would have thought who want to know the difference. Thus, when you ask, I…umm…record a video.
