Garmin hasunveiled the Venu Sq 2 and Venu Sq 2 Music Edition, two reasonably priced GPS smartwatches with continuous fitness tracking, all-day health monitoring, and linked functions. For those who want to take their music with them, the Venu Sq 2 Music Edition has on-device music storage, allowing them to listen to music without a phone. Earlier, Garmin announced its Enduro 2 multisport GPS smartwatch.
The Venu SQ 2 series combines daily style with health and fitness measures. It has a bright, easy-to-read 1.4″ rectangular AMOLED display with a lightweight aluminium bezel and comfortable silicone band, while a touchscreen enables instant access to health facts, 25+ built-in sports applications, smart notifications, and more.
Additionally, users can monitor health metrics around-the-clock and get a more complete picture of their sleep quality, stress levels, body battery, and activity levels thanks to the up to 11 days of battery life in smartwatch mode. This means they can monitor health metrics without worrying about charging their watch every night.
With Venu Sq 2, you’ll never miss a beat. When coupled with an Apple or Android smartphone, receive text messages, social media updates, emails, and more. Safety features relay the user’s live location to emergency contacts or send a message if an issue is detected. Garmin Pay lets you skip checkout queues and pay on your wrist.
The Venu Sq 2 Music Edition users can store 500 tracks, including Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer playlists (subscription required). Users may download apps, watch faces, and more from the Connect IQ Store immediately on the watch or the smartphone app.
