The Garmin Venu 2 and 2S are nearly identical watches, with the primary difference being their size. These fitness oriented smartwatches bring the best of the smartwatch world together with the best accuracy and insights of the sportswatch and fitness tracker world. For the price though, how well does this actually deliver?

CONCLUSION:
Smartwatches are still finding their purpose in the world, but one definite purpose is for fitness. Counting steps, tracking heart rate, GPS, music for runs without a phone, and contactless payment for that gatorade at the end of your run. And for many people, this is the most important purpose for a smartwatch. When it comes to fitness oriented smartwatches, this should attract the same crowd as the Fitbit Sense and Versa, but the Garmin Venu 2 and 2S are far more accurate, more in depth, and more serious when it comes to fitness tracking.

This is not a smartphone replacement like the Apple and Galaxy watches try to be. This cannot field phone calls and has no voice assistant, but if what you want is an everyday smartwatch that absolutely crushes it in the realm of fitness, this is it. Much more user friendly and practical than the pro athlete Fenix watches, and much more accurate than just about any other smartwatch. This is the perfect hybrid between smartwatch and sportswatch.

The downside? The price 🙁 The price of accuracy and wildly in depth analytics is $399

WHAT GEAR DO I USE?
Heart rate sensor: https://mikeobrienmedia.com/Polar-H10
(Polar H10 is known to be one of the most accurate in the industry and therefore acts as a great standard to which I compare smartwatch heart rate sensors)
