Garmin Venu 2 review: A top smartwatch for fitness tracking
Long-lasting battery for all your workoutsFortunately the Venu 2 makes up for a lot of what it lacks in the smart features department with its strong battery life. Garmin says you'll be able to use the Venu 2 in smartwatch mode (mirroring phone notifications) for 11 days, or 10 days from the 2S.

GPS accuracy comparison of a Garmin Venu Sq (left) versus an Apple Watch Series 6 (right)
I have a Garmin Venu and my GF has an Apple Watch - we used to do these comparisons all the time and this is in line. The Garmin map actually shows where we would criss-cross on the street - the apple watch doesn't have that level of precision.

I do want to be an Apple Watch fanboy but can we all just be honest about one thing? Apple has got to solve/fix the battery issue. Garmin’s new Epix 2 gets 6 days on a charge with an AMOLED screen. Come on Apple how about you at least split the difference and give us 3 days? 18 hours?
My wife has a Garmin Venu 2 and its slow as all hell to navigate the menus but the battery lasts days. I have a Series 6, it’s buttery smooth with lots of features and the battery lasts ~1.5 days with AoD. Like others have mentioned, I throw it on the charger while getting ready for work and its ready to go by the time I need it. It’s really not so bad.

The Venu 2 straddles the line between a lifestyle accessory and dedicated sport watch
Garmin effectively confirmed that to me, saying the Venu 2 was designed for more of an “active lifestyle” versus an adventure / outdoor customer in mind. If you look at the list of activities and you see that all of your favorites are covered, then this watch is liable to be an excellent workout companion for you. The smart features are nice, the battery life is fantastic, and the activity tracking is highly accurate

Also no walkie talkie option. * You see your texts come through on the watch, but you can't really go back and access them on the watch. (personally, these are all features I didn't use on my AW anyway, so I didn't care....phone is in my pocket anyway 90+% of the time). Ultimately, I am very happy with this watch, and am glad I switched over from the AW that barely got me through 1 full day of use.

Garmin vs. Apple vs. Fitbit
While this isn’t a fancy Apple Watch, it does everything I needed it to without the jaw dropping cost. You also don’t have to pay a monthly membership to use features like O2 saturation the way you have to with FitBit watches. It also looks really nice. It tracks my heart rate, oxygen levels, sleep,...

What smartwatch are you using with your pixel?
Garmin Venu. Garmins are great activity trackers that also do some smartwatch stuff OK. But that's alright for me, I want strong activity tracking. YMMV
Help me choose: Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 or Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra
The sensor is just better. Not comparable to the Apple Watch but pretty comparable to Garmin. I have tested this with the Garmin Venu 2 and also a heart strap.

Garmin Venu 2 / 2S GPS Smartwatch // In-Depth Review
But after that i was actually pretty impressed with what i saw from the venue 2 and it also produced a very usable average high rate. So, overall, i do think that 4th generation elevate heart rate sensor is performing a bit more accurately than what i've seen in the past, but with activities like weight, training, high intensity, animal training.
