Have you ever gotten your rigorous workout rudely interrupted by the sound of a notification from your phone and followed by an itch to check? Did a time ever come when your hands were full but had to change the music playing? Have you ever scrambled for your tablet to reply to a message but couldn’t find it? 

If you’ve come across any of the experiences aforementioned, then you’ll definitely be delighted with the new Garmin Venu 2 Plus’ voice functionality. Fresh out of release, the GPS smartwatch’s arrival had in tow 2 new features on top of the Venu 2 series’ already impressive interface and technology. 

Let’s explore all that the Garmin Venu 2 Plus has to offer, shall we?

Look Mom, No Hands 

Answering a call hands-free while exercising? Yes, it’s possible with the Garmin Venu 2 Plus! With merely a press of a button, you’re set to make and take phone calls from your wrist. 

Flex your snazzy smartwatch’s voice control function by connecting to your cellular phone’s voice assistant. Send that good morning text, ask how many calories that scrumptious chocolate bar has, control your compatible smart home devices and more, at ease.

With less demand for your hands, you can now put more focus on carrying out your active lifestyle.

Made For You

As many are fond of saying, fitness is a personal journey. Hence, it only follows that the whole experience should be purely commanded by you and more importantly, made for you. The Garmin Venu 2 Plus fully understands this. That’s why all its fitness features are customizable. 

This smart timepiece follows suit with its siblings from the series. It also comes with over 25 built-in indoor and GPS sports apps. You can walk at your pace or you can go to the extremes like advanced strength training with muscle map graphics and more. Yup, you can do those with this accessory!

The numbers don’t stop there! There are also a whopping amount of 1400 exercises to create your tailor-made workouts. If you’re someone who’s new to the fitness game, the 75 preset animated workouts will come in handy. Each gives a user-friendly demonstration of the proper form and technique to follow for each exercise. You can even try connecting your timepiece with the Garmin Coach for free adaptive training plans

The interfaces’ features that offer personalized touches continue. Make the accessory truly your own by aligning the apps and watch’s face to your personality and what you need. Garmin has made customizing hassle-free by simply downloading the app from the Connect IQTM store

Try mixing and matching the bands and bezels to transform your accessory to something that not only fulfills your fitness necessities but also, your sense of style. This is a sure-ball wardrobe staple, as it comes in three neutral colorways: Black, Ivory and Powder Gray. 

Adapts To What You Need 

With a sea of smartphones and brands to patronize in this day and age, what’s often the concern of smartwatch users is if their accessory is compatible with their cellular device. With the Garmin Venu 2 Plus, that’s no problem at all. 

It is compatible with Android and Apple phones. For the voice functionality, it easily connects with Siri, Google Assistant or Bixby. When it comes to your music needs, built-in music amounting to over 650 songs, may be sourced from Spotify, Amazon Music and Deezer

Need we say more to prove its adaptability and flexibility? 

Your Everyday Partner 

We’re not lying when we say that 24/7, 7 days a week, the Garmin Venu 2 Plus will be there for you.

It will keep a steady watch of your health every single time. Some of its popular health monitoring features include: heart rate (with user-configurable alerts for high or low readings), advanced sleep with sleep score and insights by Firstbeat AnalyticsTM, breathwork activities, fitness age, respiration, Pulse Ox, all-day stress and hydration levels. Lady users will also appreciate the watch’s ability to track menstrual cycle and pregnancy. 

If you’re not feeling at tip-top shape and want a quick grasp at how you’re doing health-wise, the Health SnapshotTM generates a report of key physiological data from merely a 2-minute window. 

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus was envisioned with the multitasker in mind. And naturally, with the fast-paced and taxing landscape we are in, it’s bound to get draining. This is where the accessory’s Body BatteryTM is extremely helpful. It gives you a clear picture on how “charged” you are with the use of stats. Through this, you will know how your body reacts to stress and exercise. Is it time to hit the sack or can you still take a few more hits? 

This smartwatch cares for your security. You’ll know it with Garmin’s safety and tracking features. While we surely hope not, should accidents or anything unfortunate happen where you need medical assistance or your loved ones’ immediate attention, automatic incident detection and manually triggered assistance alerts are put in place. This hastily sends a message with your location to your emergency contacts.

To keep extra safe, you can even permit friends and family to track your outdoor activities with LiveTrack

It is touted as “your everyday partner” because it’s also designed for all-day wear. The watch’s flexible 20mm industry-standard quick release silicone brand is easy on the wrist. The new addition to the Venu 2 Plus also comes with a fresh streamlined 43mm case. This is on top of its already flawless exteriors from its siblings—such as its stainless steel bezels and hardware and durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 touch screen AMOLED display. 

Wearing the Garmin Venu 2 Plus is an all-around pleasant experience. 

With all its smart features and multitasking abilities, it’s natural to think that this overloaded interface will quickly lose juice. However, it boasts of an impeccable battery life of up to 9 days in smartwatch mode and 8 hours when in GPS + Music mode. You read that right: 9 days! Excuse us while we pick up our jaws from the ground. 

Should you be in a rush, it also carries a rapid battery recharge feature of merely 10 minutes. This minute amount of time already adds one day of smartwatch mode battery life and one hour should you opt for the GPS + Music mode.

If everything that has been said still doesn’t impress you, here’s a grand achievement recently bagged by the Venu 2 Plus. In the CES 2022 global tech-event it was recognized as an Innovation Awards honoree

All the thoughtful functionalities of the Garmin Venu 2 Plus clearly shows that this is one product whose mission is to please and ease the burden of its users in leading more robust lives. 

Engineered on the inside for life on the outside, Garmin products have revolutionized the wellness industry. Committed to developing wearables and healthy measurement tools that help people of all activity levels lead healthier lives, Garmin believes every day is an opportunity to innovate and a chance to beat yesterday.”
