Garmin Venu Sq 2 smart watch with band - shadow gray is rated 4.20 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Watch Went from an Apple watch to the Venu Sq 2. Was looking for a few upgrades. Longer battery life, body battery, and health data. To get them with iWatch was $600. The Venu Sq2 has everything for a 1/3 the price. Oh and it’s so much lighter weight you barely feel it on your wrist. My first charge lasted over three weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over priced for no more than it does. It would be OK for a runner or power walker to gauge there progress, but I needed something to monitor my recovery after heart surgery and this ain't it. Battery only lasts a day and a half and half of the things like blood pressure, spo2 you have to purchase those seperate and Link them to the watch. For me personnely it was a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Venu sq 2 watch Finally my watch does everything I want. It records activities and my heart functions and numerous other great features. However getting things setup and synced was a nightmare! I love my watch now, but I am not sure I love Garmin! In my opinion this watch is not user friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better design for small wrist I had the forunner 45s but it caught on shirt sleeves frequently. The rounded square design and better quality screen are a much better fit for me. Responsive and love the touch screen so I can scroll to read the whole message.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Display, great HR and GPS I upgraded to this from a Fitbit, The display is absolutely gorgeous and it works flawlessly. Heart rate and syncing work really well and the GPS accuracy is very good, After my less than happy experience with the fitbit I couldnt be happier with this watch,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nope. Nope. Nope. Good for what it is but not at all suited to my needs. 1. No kayak mode (guess what I do most). 2. GPS limits battery life to less than 24 hours (I need this for ultra racing). 3. Many of the categories (rowing) are ONLY metric. 4. Phone support was good but really illuminated the watches’ weaknesses. It should be noted I was not misled in any way. I will be returning the watch as I apparently did not do my homework.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good but a few features need more explanation In general the watch is very good. I installed the Glance watch face but the description of the different displays is lacking so I'm not sure what the mountain symbol and the upper arc bar are. The step counter is reading low all the time compared to other people, Fitbit and my iPhone step counter. I think there is a way to customize my step strides but after trying several times, I cannot find how to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly The watch is very user friendly. I really like how it's able to be more customized unlike the venue sq. It links perfectly with the app, always up to date on notifications, Not glichy at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice watch BUT inaccurate heart rate monitor I bought this to help monitor my heart rate due to a condition I have, however it seemed to be way off so had 2 of my doctor friends check it with their monitoring devices and it was as much as 25 bpm off during resting. I returned the watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright I have the venue sq and love it. Decided to upgrade because of the longer life battery and fuller screen. I power my Garmin watches off at night typically. After 12 days with my Sq 2 I'm still at 43% remaining battery. Amazing !! Just wish there were more watch faces available in the IQ connect store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silly I bought it to replace my Samsung Active 2 which broke just after 2 years. Didn't realize the Garmin Venue 2 Sq doesn't have any speaker/sound! What a waste of money, to get a watch that has no audible alarms or notifications. And the vibration is so faint that was no substitute for sounds. Yes it had some cool running features but I never bothered using it. Returned inside of 24 hours. Bought the Amazfit 4. Less comprehensive running tracking but otherwise superior in every way, bigger beautiful OLED display/alexa-assistant enabled/with speakers. And $50 cheaper than the cheap feeling Garmin. So disappointed with Garmin. I guess you have to spend $400+ for a decent smart watch from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent multi use watch There is a reason that I have been a Garmin user for so many years. Excellent products and excellent after sales service. I have owned 3 Garmin watches. The Venu SQ 2 is my favorite so far. The battery life is exceptional. I have a busy life and don’t want to deal with charging my watch every day. The size and format of the SQ 2 makes it an elegant sport watch. It is not difficult to navigate once you get hang of it. It is an excellent golf watch. The only reason that I did not give it a perfect score was that it lacks the phone features of several of its competitors . Even so, it is rich in other features which makes it a product to be seriously considered.Q

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, great! I have had my watch for 2 or 3 weeks now, and I love all the features. It took a minute to get used to it - wearing it, using the features, etc. But I feel like everything is pretty easy to learn. Unfortunately, I do have some skin irritation from the first few days of wearing it and it hasn't been resolved yet. I think it was the rubber straps on my skin while doing HIIT - maybe the strap was too tight and that's what caused it? I am still figuring this out. Other than that, which may or may not happen to others, I think this was a fantastic purchase and a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from Vivoactive HR I have been a Garmin user since 2007. Starting with the Forerunner 305 which I still have and uses from time to time. While a great runners watch it is not a great day to day watch. I got the Vivoactive thinking that would be the best of both worlds, however the case was weak and broke numerous times most of which were covered by warranty. Once out of warranty I searched for an option that was closer to a traditional watchband. The Venu SQ 2 was a wonderful option. The battery life is a solid 7 days if you use the gps and oxygen sensor. I use the gps 4-5 days weekly with my morning runs. Additionally, I use the oxygen sensor as I sleep nightly to better track my sleeping. The detailed information I get back on my stats is greatly appreciated and more valuable than the information I get from my Oura Ring. While I prefer to not sleep in a watch, it is a small sacrifice because of the helpful information it provides. With the increasing cost of smart products, this one seems reasonable in comparison to other options in the market. Easy to use and well design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Venu sq 2 review I love my venu sq 2. I love the feautures and the data that it provides. I feel like it’s a great combo of the Apple Watch and the whoop. The only downfall is I wish it had the workout recovery time that the fenix has. I’m still learning the different features of the venu but so far I am loving it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefer my new device. I gave my Vivo Active 4 to my husband because it is larger than I thought from a photo (could not get to a store several years ago when I bought it!) and it is perfect for him, especially because he has a-fib and needs to check his pulse. The face I selected is easier to read than those on my old watch, too. The method for using timers, stopwatches, etc is more user friendly. Glances, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice features I purchased the Venu Sq 2 today as it was a viable alternative to my Apple Watch 4. The Venu looks less fragile and it locks on to GPS quite quickly. I wish badminton is available as an activity to add to the watch. Then it will be a perfect replacement for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome watch!! I bought this watch about a month ago because of the features it has. My history is stage 4 breast cancer that has spread to my lungs. I am always monitoring my vitals as it is a good indicator if the chemo is doing the job or if I need to be switched to something else. With this watch I can do just that while I’m on the treadmill or at work. It monitors my whole day/night/sleep. Then I just go to the app on my phone and review everything….very convenient. I know there is still much more to learn as there are many features I haven’t touched yet. There are online videos and instructions to help and I have been using them. Overall, great watch! Glad I purchased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good , but I Wish… I “treated” myself and as an Early Christmas Present, purchased a Venue Sq2 . I like it a lot , but.. wish it came with a more thorough set of instructions on how to. After about a month using, I feel I have only scrapped the surface in figuring out how to use tge many features: The How to guide is so brief: Does not cover how to turn on- off certain features: does not describe how to use work out-weight lifting multiple sets.. a bit frustrating. Some much good technology packed into one little watch.. I just wish you would have taken the time and care to document functions features & how to’s for those of us who are not programmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great watch for running and to use every day. I asked my running club what watch they would recommend for basic running. Every recommendation I received was to choose a Garmin watch. I chose the Venu Sq 2 because it is small, has a bright screen, and long battery life. The watch works great for running. Integration with Strava is seamless, and the GPS is much more accurate than the one on my smart phone. Knowling my pace while running motivates me to run at a faster pace. The screen is customizable so I can see big numbers (pace and distance) while running without my glasses. I wore the watch on a week-long out-of-town trip (no running or GPS use), never charging it, and the battery was still at 70+% when I got home. I am completely happy with this watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the features I need I bought this around the middle of October and it’s now the 5th of November and I have charged it only once and it isn’t ready for another charge yet! My Apple Watch needed charging every day or day and a half. I wanted at least the sleep feature but having to charge it interfered with that. The sleep and body battery feature on my venu is perfect for what I need. Amazing battery life!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge screen, small font I always had a Vivosport and loved the size and size of the display. On the Venu, I have the wrist band in the next to the smallest hole. The screen size is large, but the size of the data is very small, a waste of the screen size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing phone but it keeps disconnecting my notifi I’ve had my watch for over six months and I love it! I’d give it a 5star review except for the fact that every time my phone disconnects from the watch (ie everytime I take my dog outside and leave my phone in the house), it doesn’t reconnect my notifications. I have to completely remove the device in the app and set it back up. This is so frustrating! I’ve updated all apps, phone, etc but no improvement. Please fix this because this watch is amazing otherwise. It’s so helpful at tracking workouts, the info has helped me improve my sleep, and manage my stress (aside from reconnecting my phone daily).

I absolutely love the fact that it’s keeping my health statistics at all times especially during sleep and exercise. It helps keep me notified of any notifications on my phone as well which is another favorite feature. I highly recommend the Venu 2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fitness tracker I bought the Venu Sq 2 to replace another maker's fitness tracker after learning that a major search engine and data broker had bought the original maker. I use the Venu to track steps and distance, but not much else. The "get up and move" reminder is very helpful and I do use the alarm function quite often. The device has many more features than I use, but for my purposes, it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! (replaces a Forerunner 35) Christmas present to myself. Many more features than I will ever use, but that's OK. I like the bright color display - still getting used to the "wrist twitch" to activate the display (sometimes I can't get it to work). I really like that I can change the watch face (BUT there doesn't seem to be any "high visibility" faces for us senior citizens who are post cataract surgery with close vision issues - hopefully this will be address in a future up-date? FWIW, the display on the Forerunner 35 was ideal.) Conventional wrist band attachment - a worthwhile improvement. Good battery life. Lots to like in the Venu SQ 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my needs Bought it because I wanted a fancy everyday wearing watch that would let me see my text messages without going to my phone. Also bought it because at lunch when I do my walks I wanted this watch to track it. I didn't want to continue carrying my garmin 255s and my old watch and switching at lunch so this was perfect for my need. I don't use it for much other than what I said. I do like Garmin products so I knew what type of quality I am paying/getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin quality & features in a better size The Venu SQ 2 is what I've been looking for: fully capable for my needs and at a slightly smaller size than the others I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for its purpose This is a nice watch. The battery longevity is unbelievable. It has some features I really appreciate. I particularly like the sleep tracking. Coming from the Apple Watch, this doesn’t quite compare. The Garmin is obviously fitness driven and since my main exercise is walking, most of the features are useless to me. I also do not like the limited options for the face. I believe if this was my first smart watch, I would love it but having used Apple before, it is only okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I love it so far. I love the pickleball activity app and the walk app. I like the way it gives me a map and stats when I'm done, and the app is much nicer than the fitbit app also. The big test is how long will it last. I had a fitbit sense and it lasted less than 2 years. The battery died before the end of the day and the heart rate and sleep stopped working. I had a fenix some years back and love it and it last much longer. I'm just sorry I didn't stick with Garmin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not so smart Purchased this watch to upgrade from previous brand based on garmin rep. Excited about all the health features, since I am a senior. Have had it for about 1 week. Started receiving abnormal low and high heart rate alerts. Scared the heck out of me. Went online and found out tat this watch and many other garmin watches are very inaccurate. So very disappointed. The previous much cheaper watch heart rate always matched doctor's count/ Now I am considering returning, since I primarily use steps and heartrate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sync requires cable I like the watch and most of it's features. It's very much designed to be paired to a smart phone, which I do not have, therefore requiring the USB cable to sync to the computer and download the data. I've tried blue tooth and Garmin antennae, neither seem to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Garmin Venu Sq 2! I am a former Fitbit customer. I had a Fitbit One for years and loved it but decided to upgrade and got the Fitbit Sense. I had it for a year when it died. It annoyed me that it only lasted a year but I liked it so I bought another one. That one died just after the 45-day period to get a refund. Fitbit sent me a replacement which also died. After 4 dead replacements, I gave up on Fitbit and bought the Venu Sq 2 and could not be happier. The watch is beautiful, has lots of great features (more than the Fitbit Sense) and the battery lasts well over a week before having to charge it. So far, I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend the Venu Sq 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as Other Watches I received this a year ago. At first the watch was getting to know my habits, heart rates, etc. 9mos into using the watch, it starts loosing track of steps, dropping out on 2,000 steps from running daily total and the heart rate monitors were all over the place the last couple weeks I had the watch. After about 30mins of the watch not keeping up with me, I destroyed it. It is crappy just like other health watches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lacking in fitness tracking abilities The Watcher is okay. GPS seems fairly accurate. However, there is no way to track hiking ;( The only way to do that is by using the walk function, which is not the same. I don't understand why they have the ability to track a golf game (lol) but not hiking?! I'll bet many more customers hike, then golf. For this reason, I do not recommend to anyone who is active outside. I will not buy another one.

The Garmin Venu Sq 2 is perfect for me. It can even gauge the stress caused by my chronic illness. The battery lasts me 11-12 days and you don't have to pay a subscription for any of the Garmin features. Because of its accuracy, I can better tailor my meals, sleep, and exercise to suit me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s ok I made the switch because I needed a watch that could stay on longer without a charge. It does just that. It is annoying to go in and set each rep during my Pilates. I much rather prefer it just take the 50 minute workout as for what it is. Instead I have to go in and try to remember each move during workouts. I don’t want to hit the side of the watch to set my reps. That is just annoying and not natural for reformer and chair Pilates. I’m going to keep it. It does what I want long charge. I think the stress monitoring is unusual and useless in my opinion and body charge feature. I deleted it off the watch. It just gets in my head and makes me feel like I should rest when I am fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO much better than Fitbit! I've had several Fitbits over the past 5 years, and they all seem to stop working after about 2 years. Customer service was meh and features without a paid subscription were very limited. When my latest Fitbit Charge screen stopped working after about 15 months, I decided to shop around for a different brand. I considered Apple Watch 7 and the Venu SQ2. My husband has an Apple watch and loves it, except for the short battery life, so I was very familiar with Apple and also live in the Apple ecosystem (macs, apple phone, ipad, etc). I ultimately decided to go with the Venu SQ2 for the battery life and more detailed breakdown of stats and workouts. I love my watch and it has helped me be more active. The app is easy to use and the level of detail for each of the areas the watch tracks is amazing. The only shortcoming was that none of the 8 banks I use work with Garmin pay, yet 7 out of those work with Apple pay. Garmin needs to catch up a bit in this area, but otherwise the watch was a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fitness/smart watch combo This is a great smartwatch / fitness watch with fantastic battery life. If does excellent tracking of fitness, sleep and heart rate. It also has enough smartwatch features like music controls, notifications, responding to messages (on Android). The battery life is better than their older dimmer screens, but now they have beautiful displays that are still visible outside in the sun (even with sunglasses on)! I also have a Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and while the Venu has fewer smartwatch features than that watch the battery life beats it by a week or more. My Venu Sq 2 was used extensively for 7 days/nights and I still had 50% battery left. It has a great band and takes standard watch bands. I'm very happy with this watch, so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Impressions Good Still learning my way around the device and features, having switched from Fitbit. I had hoped the heart rate sensor would register closer to my chest strap readings, however it may improve with time and future updates. According to Garmin, my sleep score is almost always Poor, even if my length of sleep and/or REM, etc. can be Excellent. Once again, maybe that will adjust with more time and updates. Although I hardly even look at the sleep score now, since it rarely shows a change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek Design Upgraded from the Forerunner 55. Has a lot more stats plus I like the design with the touch screen. Def a plus. I can read full texts vs the 55 I could maybe get a couple of words in the text but if it was a group text I might as well look at my phone since I couldn't get past the names. The watch is pretty easy to use but I am getting a hang of it when i go on runs. Accidentally deleted a part of my run when I stopped the watch to wait at the stop light and the touch screen delete button was accidentally pressed when I was starting back running. Think there should be a feature to say "Are you sure?" before so it doesn't just disappear in a blink of an eye.
