Garmin Venu 2 Full Specifications and Features

Venu 2 is a worthy prequel to the original Venu with a refined user interface, more music storage, and long battery performance.  Plus, there are more sports modes like High-intensity interval training, bouldering, and rock climbing.

Garmin has packed the new Elevate sensor in the Venu 2 to enhance heart rate, sleep and stress tracking data. Now, there are two sizes available. The smaller Venu 2S is aimed at women, whereas the base model is obviously for Men.
