    Nice size that still fits a wrist circumference of 17.5

    Tom | 26 April 2021 | In the version: 40.4mm - Gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Much nicer than the Venu 1
    • Good sensors
    • Garmin connect
    • Good GPS
    • Out of the box less 'mess' than Venu 1
    • Strap fits up to wrist circumference 17.5cm
    • iPhone link limited (depends on Apple)

    As a successor to the Vivoactive 3, I ordered the Venu two weeks ago. Great item but with limited battery life. Thanks to coolblue I was happy to exchange for the Venu 2! I chose the Venu 2s, the small version. With my wrist circumference of 17.5 cm, I think it looks a bit more chic than the 5 mm larger version. I have to say, it fits just right. I have 1 switch when I wear it loose. and 3 switches in 'sport' position. So just big enough. I would have liked the strap 1 cm longer, but I am also at the max what they indicate. I hope my wrists don't grow in the summer.

    The software is a bit newer than the Venu 1. Especially that they have said goodbye to all widgets but have simply put everything together in an orderly fashion is really brilliant.
    The screen is easy to read in the sun and also indoors. The 'wake' function is clearly better than with the Venu 1, the screen sometimes didn't want to turn when you turned it towards you, that's really no longer an issue here.

    Smartwatch for active people. More than a "sports watch".

    Reno | 29 April 2021 | In the version: 45.4mm - Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Very accurate measurements
    • accurate GSP, fast connection
    • Nice design, quality
    • Universal connection for strap, replaceable.
    • Beautiful screen
    • Packaging is not special, for the price it could be better.
    • Limited additional apps

    Garmin Venu2 (large model). The size is not that bad, men who are in doubt I would recommend the larger model.
    The screen is very nice and easy to read, even in direct sunlight and the wake function works very accurately.
    Battery life for me is 5 days, with many notifications and continuous heart rate monitoring.

    All measurements appear to be accurate (although it is difficult to know for sure without proper control).
    For offline Spotify music, a premium subscription is required, otherwise Spotify will not allow you to listen offline. Putting a lot of music on the watch at once takes a very long time and requires a lot of power. I had to wait almost an hour for 300 songs and in the meantime had to charge the watch. Fortunately, you don't have to do this very often.
    Connecting to my earphones went very smoothly, in a few seconds you are "on the run".

    Automatic workout detection works smoothly, I sometimes run without starting a workout, after 1 minute the watch starts a running session and corrects for the lost minute. I have not tested this with other sports.

    You can download or create extra watchfaces via the Connect IQ app, you can also download other apps here, but I still miss variation. For example, there is no flashlight app (which lights up the screen at max brightness).

    Overall I am super happy with this watch! Highly recommended but not cheap, but worth the money.

    • New nice design and layout
    • Battery saver mode is new and plus
    • Once you're used to Garmin operations, it's very easy
    • Elegant not too 'clunky'
    • Garmin pay does not yet work, it is not yet clear whether it is Garmin or bank

    Nice design, new dimensions, new layout, easy to use.

    Nice watch with many possibilities
    • Female
    • GPS receiver is fast
    • nice screen
    • Get used to the controls

    Switched from a Forerunner 245 to a Venu 2S. This one is not much smaller but a lot more feminine. Nice easy to read screen, turning the wrist works well to turn on the screen. Fine possibilities in terms of sports; GPS works well and heart rate seems fairly accurate. Recommended!

    Very nice combination between sports watch and smartwatch.
    • beautiful model
    • Much possible
    • Nice sleep tracker
    • Nice display
    • Fits perfectly on a narrow (women's) wrist

    The watch is very good. I've only had it for a week so the GPS accuracy is yet to be determined. Beautiful design and fits perfectly on a narrow wrist. The display is also much nicer than its predecessors. Lots of options and possibilities, nice combination between smartwatch and sports watch.

    The body battery is a fantastic tool from Garmin

    • Pricey

    Cool watch to see with lots of options for sports. Had the fitbit Versa 2 before and this is much better in terms of features, screen and looks. If you are a man in doubt about the 2S and the 2, take the 2 anyway!

    Versatile, intuitive, contains a lot of information
    • Beautiful design
    • Intuitively, for a first sports watch I had mastered it in no time
    • A lot of information
    • Easy to pause and continue activities with the large button on the side of the watch
    • Good link with well-known apps such as Strava
    • Installation and extensive use/access must be via smartphone
    • Searching for a GPS connection takes a long time if you want to start an outdoor workout
    • "Gesture" recognition could be a little better, often does not recognize "activation movement"
    • Sorting music transferred to internal storage via file transfer is cumbersome

    After years of sports (especially running) with ever-growing smartphones in a bracelet, it was time for a sports watch. After a long hesitation between the Venu 2 and Vivoactive 4, the choice finally fell on the Venu.

    Now I'm tech savvy, but for a first ever sports watch it didn't take long to get the hang of it. Some functions are well 'hidden' because you only get to them by holding down a certain button, but there are only 2 large, physical buttons on the right side of the watch, the rest of the control is via the OLED screen. The bottom button usually serves as a cancel button, the top one for starting an activity or confirming. It only takes you a few minutes to configure and set up the sports watch to your own taste (think of displaying meters/kilometers instead of feet/miles, favorite activities, etc.). Unfortunately, you do need a smartphone for this on which you first have to download the Garmin Connect App, which requires an awful lot of permission, and will keep asking you to the annoying point when you don't grant it. I thought this was a drawback.

    One of the spearheads for which I ultimately chose this model is the internal storage capacity, so that you no longer have to carry the smartphone around for your own music. Apps such as Amazon Music and Spotify can be used, but I just want to connect the sports watch to the computer via the USB cable and be able to put my MP3 files on it myself. That all works fine. The only drawback is that the music player on the sports watch works with a few predefined categories, and you seem to have little influence on which category your MP3 files are classified under. For me, everything came under "Other", placed at the very bottom of the list.

    The sports watch keeps track of a lot of useful information, including heart rate, oxygen content, stress level, steps, calories, etc. It is possible to view a detailed view per subject, whether or not limited to the sports watch itself. You can then view this data and the history in detail in the smartphone app. The watch also keeps track of the specific statistics that you want to keep track of for certain workouts. I mainly use it for running, and all the data you need can be found: distance, pace, route, times, et cetera. These are automatically transferred to a third-party app like Strava as soon as the smartphone is back in range.

    I have now been wearing the watch day in and day out all week and I hardly feel it. It is comfortable and does not irritate. Even at night I keep it on because it also records your sleep pattern and also assigns an analysis and score to it. After a week of intensive use, I have only been able to discover 2 minor flaws. The first is that it takes a very long time to start an activity until there is a GPS connection. Inside you can almost forget that anyway, you really have to go outside if you want to get a connection at all. Every time I have to wait between 10 and 20 seconds until the GPS signal is found and I can actually start running.

    The other downside is that "Gestures" still seem to need a bit of fine-tuning. The watch will automatically go into sleep mode (provided you turn this off, but this will again be at the expense of battery life), and will become active again as soon as you 'turn' it to your face. This sometimes doesn't seem to work, so you often have to make this movement again excessively.

    The battery life is estimated by Garmin at 11 days, but this seems very optimistic to me. Not that this is bad, by the way, because after 5 days of use, during which 3 times an hour was run while music was played (with Samsung Airbuds), I still have over 30% left. Charging via the USB cable is lightning fast.

    All in all very satisfied with the watch and although it is a considerable investment, the money is well worth it.

    Stylish watch
    • nice stylish watch
    • clear screen
    • easy to operate
    • no PIN code lock

    I wasn't sure if the venu 2s would be too small, but it fits my wrist (16 cm) just fine. The screen is clear to read and the menu is easy and you have extensive information via the app. I especially wanted this one because the body battery is on it and in combination with all the other measurements, it gives an accurate insight into your health in my opinion. My sleep rhythm is also well registered. I think a downside is that it is not locked with a pin code if you take it off, which is the case with the apple watch. The number of steps is also very enthusiastic, because I drive a lot of kilometers in the car every day and yet steps are registered. The design is very nice and doesn't look like a sports watch
