As horology evolves to cater to the needs of its wearers, smartwatches like the Venu 2 series now have the ability of keeping track of time—as well as your farthest fitness goals all in one piece
Most smartwatches are like computers that you put on your wrist as peripherals to your growing collection of smart gadgets. Wearing either iterations of the Garmin Venu 2 series feels like you’re slipping into a DB5 Aston Martin to chase the trail of your arch-nemesis—except this time, the villain is the treadmill or a yoga mat, and your “sports car” is able to track a variety of your health statistics right from a number as basic your pulse, down to something as complicated as your blood oxygen and even your fitness age. Here is the latest scoop on the details surrounding the brand-new Garmin Venu 2 series as we take a look at its most powerful features as well as its sleekest quirks.
One step towards better health
The Garmin Venu 2 series takes pride in bringing you the broadest range of health monitoring features in each and every piece. Both the Venu 2 and Venu 2S are able to accurately track your heart rate, Pulse Ox, and sleep quality, 24/7. These two sleek smartwatches boast an improved interface design and a stunning AMOLED watch face that is miles ahead of most smartwatches in the market today, allowing you to effortlessly track your health and wellness with a comprehensive suite of health monitoring features right on your wrist, as well as configure the interface according to your preference.
These health monitoring features provide you with all sorts of highly precise and expert-level metrics of your physical performance. Reliable data is half the battle won when it comes to keeping your body fit and healthy, which is why the Venu 2 and Venu 2S are the companions you need on your journey to self-improvement. They are also able to provide you with health assessments to various aspects of your body through the brand-new Health Snapshot feature, which tracks and generates reports on your heart rate, blood oxygen, respiration and stress levels. Such key data is summarized by the smartwatch itself in a report that you can actually share with a healthcare provider.
Apart from tracking your energy levels through the Body Battery™ energy monitoring feature, information such as your personal stress levels, blood oxygen, and even your actual health age are recorded for extra measure. The watches also come extremely handy for women of all ages, as both watches are also able to track personal health data such as your menstrual cycle and pregnancy schedule.

Whatever workout you’ll be facing on a daily basis, the Venu 2 series and its 25 built-in indoor sports apps are ready to function as your very own multi-purpose lifestyle coach. It even offers on-screen animated workouts on your screen that you can follow. May it be walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf, pilates, or yoga, this timepiece allows you to squeeze the very best out of yourself in every session without fail. Indoor climbing, bouldering, and hiking are also on the table, with the Venu 2’s new activity profiles for HIIT, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata, and custom timers.
