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: 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.”

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,...

Venu 2 Plus review: Garmin moves closer to a true smartwatch | ZDNet


I've never considered Garmin's GPS sports watches as smartwatches, but with the addition of phone call support and hands-free voice assistants the Venu 2 Plus could be considered a smartwatch. These new features and the capability of the Garmin...

Phone call and voice assistant support ; Gorgeous, brilliant AMOLED display ; Touchscreen and button navigation interface ; Powerful Garmin ecosystem and capability ; Solid battery life ; Support for a vast number of sports and activities

Expensive ; Button press required for voice assistant

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: More tempting (and expensive) than ever


Last year, we called the Garmin Venu 2 a fantastic device that cost far too much for what it offered. Now, Garmin has released a new version with mostly the same specs but some small upgrades for $50 more. Despite that, the Venu 2 Plus may be worth the...

Beautiful AMOLED display ; New third button for customizable shortcut ; Animated HIIT workouts and muscle map ; Phone calling and voice assistants added ; Music storage, Garmin Pay, and SpO2 sensor

Quite expensive ; No LTE ; Slow syncing when adding workouts and watch faces ; Call speaker is a bit quiet

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is an attractive three-button smartwatch that supports Google Assistant, Siri, and Bixby for nav shortcuts or calling contacts. Its 1.3-inch AMOLED screen is fully visible in direct sunlight, with a smooth refresh rate for great...
