Garmin Venu SQ Full Specifications and Features

Venu SQ as the name suggests is the low-end square version of the original Venu. To keep the budget low, Garmin replaced the AMOLED display with a low-resolution TFT LCD display and pulled out the Music support. The rest of the features are largely similar.

Venu SQ strikes the right balance of health and sports features but the former dominates. The sleep, stress, and heart rate tracking of the watch is almost similar to that of premium Fenix and Forerunner Series watches.

If you can’t live without the music feature, you would have to pay extra about $50 for the Venu SQ music.
