Garmin’s new Venu Sq 2 Challenges the Galaxy Watch 5

Venu Sq 2

Garmin is launching two smartwatches less than a week after Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5. Garmin Venu Sq 2 and Sq 2 – Music Edition are coming shortly.

The only difference between the Venu Sq 2 and Sq 2 – Music Edition is the ability to store music on your wrist (and the price). These rectangular smartwatches have a 1.4-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Right side buttons navigate Garmin’s wearable OS.

The Garmin Sq 2 has a clock and more than 25 sports modes. All of these tracked metrics may be accessed on the watch or using the Garmin app on your Android phone.

Recent smartwatches focus more on sleep tracking. Garmin Sq 2 maintains this tradition. Garmin’s Body Battery lets you know when to rest and when to push yourself.

The Venu Sq 2’s sensors can detect stress, Pulse Ox2, and other health indicators. The Venu Sq 2 – Music Edition has enough onboard storage for 500 songs, so you can leave your phone behind.

You’ll need a long-lasting smartwatch to get the most of the Venu Sq 2’s features. Garmin’s Venu Sq 2 is rated to last 11 days on a single charge. This puts the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro to shame, eliminating the need to charge daily.

Garmin’s additional features also set apart the top Garmin smartwatches. Garmin Pay comes with the Venu 2 Sq and Music Edition. Garmin Pay is an iOS and Android “one-size-fits-all” alternative to Google Wallet.

This bad boy won’t win any (conventional) beauty contests, but beauty frequently comes from within… or a crisp (for $250 and over) AMOLED touchscreen with a 1.41-inch diagonal.

The main difference between the “regular” and Music editions of the Venu Sq 2 is phone-free music storage. Both devices have phone-free GPS, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, in-depth sleep tracking, Body Battery energy management, stress tracking, women’s health tracking, and blood oxygen saturation tracking.

The Garmin Sq 2 can track a lot of stuff for a long time, so if you don’t mind its look and worse app selection compared to Apple or Samsung watches, it’ll be hard to keep $250 unspent starting today.

General fitness lovers, casual runners, swimmers, bikers, golfers, and tennis players can rely on a dedicated programme monitoring their every step from the smartwatch’s first setup process.

Venu Sq 2 is swim-proof. It also supports wrist payments. Smart alerts. Preloaded workouts. And 1,600+ exercises to build your own routine. And a tool called Health Snapshot that provides an overview of your wellness. We’ll stop here and let you decide how to spend $250 better.
