Garmin Venu 2 review: it's a HIIT!


The Garmin Venu 2 is a fantastic fitness watch that packs a punch, featuring a new heart rate sensor and a beautiful AMOLED screen

Great battery life ; Large AMOLED screen ; New Elevate sensor seems to work well ; Touch controls work seamlessly

Health Snapshot feels pointless ; Muscle Map graphics are hardly more than a gimmick at this point ; You're supposed to wear it 24/7 for the algorithm to work accurately

Finally, a fitness watch we can stand behind! The Garmin Venu 2 is a handsome smartwatch that can actually be used to track everyday sport activities. The inclusion of the new Elevate V4 sensor and the improved health estimations via the Firstbeat...

Garmin Venu 2 review


Equal parts everyday smartwatch and sports training tool, the Garmin Venu strikes a tricky balance with style.

High-resolution AMOLED display Super accurate GPS Wide range of wellness tools Advanced fitness tracking

Limited choice of third-party apps Minor design upgrades

The Garmin Venu 2 is one of the best sports watches around, combining serious fitness features with an excellent range of smartwatch tools for everyday life. Although its design isn't groundbreaking, and closely resembles that of the original Garmin...

Garmin Venu 2 updated review: It's all about the display


The Venu 2 is Garmin's rival to devices like the Apple Watch, with a glorious display.

Great display ; Graphics more engaging than other Garmin models ; Solid foundation of fitness functions

Design a little safe ; Brightness adjustment page really easy to trigger

It's the display that really shines on the Garmin Venu 2, giving you richer visuals than you'll get from other Garmin devices, while still delivering that solid fitness focus.

Garmin Venu 2 review: In-depth tracking with outstanding battery life


The Garmin Venu 2/S packs a ton of health-tracking metrics and smartwatch features into a small yet stylish package.

Up to 11-day battery life ; In-depth tracking of important health metrics ; Health alerts let users stay on top of stress ; Dozens of workout routines ; Numerous watch faces

High price point ; iPhone users cannot reply to messages

Garmin Venu 2 review: sports and style


Over a week of battery life and 30-plus workout types.

Bright, sharp display ; Attractive design ; Easy-to-use interface ; Ten-plus days of battery life

No onboard maps ; Fewer supported workout types compared to other Garmin watches ; Not as many smartwatch features as an Apple Watch

Garmin’s new Venu 2 and Venu 2S are sport watches designed to be worn every day. They have sleek designs and handy smartwatch features but not as many fitness tracking options as Garmin’s other watches.

Garmin Venu 2 review: A fantastic smartwatch priced out of its league


The Garmin Venu 2 is a great smartwatch that will give you just about everything you'd want from the form factor, but it's got one major flaw. If only Garmin would lower the price a bit (and separate the sizes by price), I think this could be one of...

Beautiful screen ; Amazing battery life ; Super-intuitive user interface ; Lightweight and comfortable

Plastic body ; Smaller version is the same price as the larger one ; It's too expensive for what it is

The Garmin Venu 2 is the best smartwatch that I've ever worn that wasn't made by Apple. It looks and feels great, does just about everything you'd expect pretty well, and is extremely easy to use. What keeps me from giving it a near-perfect score,...

Garmin Venu 2/2S Review: The Fitness Watch for Everyone


If you're looking for a fitness smartwatch, the Garmin Venu 2 is a great choice. It's better than a Fitbit Sense, has all the features most “regular” users could want and is a notable upgrade over the original Venu. It's an excellent all-around watch.

An excellent fitness watch for almost everyone ; Glances are great ; Tracks a ton of different workouts/metrics ; Killer battery life

Needs better integration with other Garmin devices ; Only a smartwatch in the most basic sense

Garmin Venu 2 review: A worthy sequel


The Garmin Venu 2 takes what made the original a success and adds even more health-tracking tools. Learn more in our Garmin Venu 2 review.

Now comes in two sizes ; Crisp AMOLED display ; Accurate fitness, sleep, and health tracking ; Excellent GPS accuracy ; Health Snapshot is useful ; More music storage

Battery life can be finicky ; Uneven heart rate sensor data ; High price tag

The Garmin Venu 2 is a well-rounded, feature-packed multisport smartwatch. It's a big improvement over the original Venu, and Garmin seems to be taking its smartwatch software seriously. It's pricey, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone...
