BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITORING
See your body’s energy levels throughout the day. This is useful to find the best times for activity and rest.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
As with the previous generation, this new Venu 2 monitors your heart rate and alerts you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities even underwater.
PULSE OX SENSOR
Use the Pulse Ox sensor to spot check your blood oxygen saturation at any point during the day, or for part of the night as you sleep, to show how well your body is absorbing oxygen. In the current context, it is a good idea to make sure your system is getting the right amount of oxygen, which can impact the immune system.
As we all know, stress can be a good thing. However, chronic stress can negatively impact someone's health. It reduces the immune system's ability to fight off antigens.
With the Venu 2, find out if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Trending data shows you if your stress if temporary and acute or chronic. There are even relax reminders that prompt you to do a short breathing activity when the watch detects that you’re feeling stressed.
WOMEN’S HEALTH TRACKING
Use the Garmin Connect app to track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education and more. Even see and log details on your wrist with the Women’s Health Tracking app.
The human body is composed of about 60% water and there are many benefits of drinking enough clean water (balance of body fluids, energy, skin, kidneys, bowel movement, etc.). You can log your daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. You can even have an auto goal for hydration that adjusts based on how much you sweat during activities.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.
SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING
Get a score for your sleep’s quality and insights on how you can do better. Even keep track of the different sleep stages as well as heart rate, stress, pulse Ox and respiration.
The Garmin Venu 2 can guide you through a breathwork activity. Follow the prompts and the watch tracks your stress and respiration to help you get a better understanding of how you’re breathing.
This new feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI or body fat percentage to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. And you can get tips to lower your fitness age.
ANIMATED, ON-SCREEN WORKOUTS
Easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga, Pilates and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts come preloaded on the Venu 2, and you can download more from the Garmin Connect app.
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
If you're into sports, this Venu 2 is for you!
At the press of a button, you can start your sport activity and track all the ways you move with more than 25 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps — including walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf and more.
ADVANCED STRENGTH TRAINING
New for the Venu 2, This detailed activity profile puts scaling and strength PRs right at your wrist plus graphics that show what muscle groups you worked.
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. It is a form of cardiovascular exercise and there are many benefits from increased aerobic capacity to increased metabolism and improved heart health.
Use this new activity profile with different timers to track your HIIT workouts, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom. Set the number of rounds, work/rest intervals and more.
Choose from more than 1,400 exercises to build your own workouts in the Garmin Connect app on your compatible smartphone. Then download them to the watch.
If you're into marathons, this Venu 2 can you train for your next 5K, 10K or half-marathon with the personal running coach on your wrist.
The American Heart Association recommends:
- At least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity
- Or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity.
The Venu 2 has improved intensity minutes to give you a better idea of when during the day you earned them and during what activity. You can even view them as a data field during timed activities.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with your compatible smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android™ phone.
The Venu 2 has even more music storage compared to the first gen. Download songs plus playlists from your Spotify, Deezer or Amazon Music accounts (subscription may be required). Use wireless headphones (sold separately) for phone-free listening.
SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during select outdoor activities — automatically with built-in incident detection.

BATTERY LIFE WITH RAPID RECHARGING
Does your smartwatch battery dies when you need it? 2-3 days of battery life is just not enough and it's very easy to forget to charge it. This is a common gripe in the world of smartwatches.
Garmin's battery management sets the standard with 10-11 days in smartwatch mode, up to 22 hours in GPS mode and up to 8 hours in GPS mode with music. The Venu, Venu Sq and Lily were already ahead of the competition but the Venu 2 extends even more their lead in the category.
The best part is the rapid charge: 10 minutes of charging adds up to 1 day of smartwatch mode battery life or 1 hour of GPS with music battery life.
BATTERY SAVER MODE
Get even more juice from your smartwatch by adjusting the settings that impact battery life the most.
This watch is water-rated to 5 ATM, making it perfect for a swim, shower or spa day.
