Body Battery energy monitoring shows how “charged” your body is, as well as the debilitating effects of stress and exercise. The Health Snapshot captures a two-minute window of key health statistics and generates a report that you can share with your healthcare provider.

Venu 2 Plus includes all the latest fitness features recently introduced in the Venu 2 series, including 25+ built-in indoor sports apps and sports apps that require GPS, which includes walking, running, HIIT, cycling, swimming in the pool, pilates, yoga, climbing, hiking, advanced strength training with muscle chart graphics and more.

In addition to being able to make a quick call without asking for a phone, Venu 2 Plus also includes Garmin safety and tracking features such as automatic accident detection (while walking, running or driving) 3 and manually activated help alerts, both of which send a message with the user’s location to their emergency contacts. LiveTrack allows friends and family to track user activity outdoors. Users can assign a specific emergency contact that Venu 2 Plus can call, such as local emergency services.

Venu 2 Plus keeps the basics on your wrist with built-in music (download up to 650 songs including playlists from Spotify, Amazon Music and Deezer4), Garmin Pay5 contactless payment and smart call notifications, messages, calendar reminders, social media notifications, breaking news and much more.

The watch offers up to 9 days of battery life in smartphone mode and up to 8 hours in GPS mode + music mode, and a fast 10-minute battery charge adds up to 1 day of battery life in smartwatch mode or 1 hour in GPS mode + music.

Vivomove Sport

The Vívomove Sport hybrid smartwatch from Garmin is an addition to the vívomove line that combines the traditional look of an analog watch with the health, fitness and smartwatch features.

Vívomove Sport allows monitoring of respiration, blood oxygen levels, stress, advanced sleep (with sleep phases), recording of hydration and 24/7 heart rate (with user warnings for high or low readings).

Body Battery Energy Monitoring shows current body energy levels which can help plan workouts, major events, and understand when it’s time to slow down, and there are women’s health features, including menstrual cycle monitoring and pregnancy monitoring.

As its name suggests, vívomove Sport is as good a choice for the gym as it is for going out on the town with friends, and includes a range of features that allow for an active lifestyle.
