Garmin has announced a new smartwatch – Venu 2. And along with Venu 2S, a smaller version. As with other devices from the manufacturer, the focus is on health and sports.
The Venu 2 version received a 1.3-inch display with a resolution of 416 × 416 pixels. Venu 2S is equipped with a 1.1-inch screen with a resolution of 360 × 360 pixels. Both models are protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and are available in several colors.
Inside are GPS and GLONASS modules, barometric altimeter, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, and thermometer. Of course, the watch is protected from dust and moisture (5 ATM).
The pulse and the amount of oxygen in the blood are monitored around the clock, and based on the data obtained, the level of stress and the intensity of breathing are assessed.
The second-generation Venu has learned to track the stages of deep and REM sleep. In the morning, you will receive detailed statistics, and if the watch realizes that you do not have enough oxygen or woke up with an increased heart rate, it will offer to breathe and relax.
The larger model will work up to 11 days on a single charge if you activate GPS and listen to music – up to 8 hours. Venu 2S in normal mode will last up to 10 days, in intensive mode – up to 7 hours. At the same time, pulse and oxygen are monitored around the clock in any mode.
The Garmin Venu 2 has a 45mm case and 22mm strap, while the Venu 2S has a 40mm case and 18mm strap. The price is $400 – and it doesn’t matter which version you choose.
