Garmin Venu 2 Plus In-Depth Review // Garmin's Best Smartwatch Yet!

Animations are smooth, and it's just a nice experience, and then another difference with the hardware is that the venue 2 plus has a stainless steel rear cover, which definitely adds a little bit more class to it. And it also weighs just slightly heavier at 51 grams versus 49 grams, oh and then another smaller difference when it comes to hardware, is that it uses 20 millimeter industry standard bands versus the 22 millimeter band on the original venue 2 and the 18 millimeter band on The original venue 2s, but a bigger difference with the hardware, though, is that the venue 2 plus adds an additional third button on the right hand, side of the device, and this button can be customized to a bunch of things like launching a voice assistant like siri Or google assistant and then on the other side of the watch, here's the feature that kind of puts the plus in the venue 2 plus, underneath these holes right here is a new speaker which you can use for calls as well as even playing music through the Watch itself, and not only that it does also have a microphone for calls, and you can also use that microphone with voice assistance like we talked about earlier. So with an iphone, you can use siri with an android phone. You can use google assistant and then with a samsung phone you can either use bixby or google assistant, and the venue 2 plus, is actually the first garmin device to come with a full-blown speaker, not just like a beeper on some previous devices
