Description

Garmin Venu Sq 2 Full Smartwatch Specifications and Features – The Garmin Venu Sq 2 is the successor to the Venu Sq, and it comes with a significant number of new features that no doubt make it a better smartwatch than its predecessor. The Venu Sq 2 comes with a larger AMOLED display, a longer battery life, and more health tracking features.

The Venu Sq 2 is durably built with a fiber-polymer case paired with silicone bands. The bezel is made of anodized aluminum while the screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It’s rated 5ATM which represents 50 meters of waterproof resistance, thus, you can wear it to the swimming pool.

Unlike its predecessor, the Venu Sq 2 has a larger 1.41 inches display powered by AMOLED. Interacting with the watch is very easy via 2 physical buttons and a touch-sensitive display. There is now the Garmin Connect IQ store app onboard the watch which makes it easier to access your favorite apps and swap watch faces.

In the fitness tracking department, the Venu Sq 2 is equipped with a compass, accelerometer, inbuilt GPS, thermometer, Spo2 sensor and heart rate sensor. These sensors enable the watch to track your steps, heart rate, sleep, blood oxygen, skin temperature, stress, and a host of other activities. With the inbuilt GPS, you can map your routes and track your pace and other metrics when you go for an outdoor workout. Unfortunately, the Venu Sq 2 lacks an altimeter and as such can’t count floors climbed.

The Venu Sq 2 is also equipped with a 4GB storage capacity that will allow you to store music onboard the watch. You have the option to stream or download music with Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer.

When your phone is nearby and notifications are enabled for your favorite apps, you get notifications when you receive a message on your phone. Moreover, you can also reply to messages with the quick replies function (android only).

The Venu Sq 2 boasts up to 11 days of battery life with mixed usage and up to 12 days of battery life when battery saver mode is enabled.
