All-Day Health Monitoring
The Venu 2 knows your body better with the broadest range of 24/7 health monitoring features available, including: heart rate (with user-configurable alerts for high or low readings), fitness age, advanced sleep with sleep score and insights, respiration, Pulse Ox2, all-day stress, hydration, and women’s health (menstrual cycle tracking and pregnancy tracking). Body Battery energy monitoring shows users how “charged” their body is, helpful for scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep. New Health Snapshot feature lets users log a 2-minute session to record key health stats and generate a report they can share with a healthcare provider.
Advanced Sleep with Sleep Score
When it’s time to recharge, the Venu 2 advanced sleep monitoring tracks light, deep and REM sleep stages as well as movement, pulse ox and respiration. With new sleep score powered by Firstbeat Analytics users receive a score based on the quality and quantity of the previous night’s sleep. These details plus personalized insights on how to improve sleep quality are viewable on the watch itself as well as in the Garmin Connect app. Need help winding down? The Venu 2 offers structured breathwork activities designed to promote focus and relaxation.
Fitness and Safety
Whether exercising at home, in the gym or the great outdoors, the Venu 2 fitness smartwatch makes it easy to stay active and engaged. With new activity profiles for HIIT (including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom timers), indoor climbing, bouldering and hiking, the Venu 2 has over 25 built-in indoor and GPS sports apps with favorites that include walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf, Pilates and yoga. The new advanced strength training profile and workouts put weight scaling and strength PRs right on the device and includes graphics showing which muscle groups were worked. Safety and tracking features provide peace of mind with automatic incident detection (during outdoor walks, runs or rides) and manually triggered assistance alerts both of which send real time location to emergency contacts. LiveTrack lets friends and family track the user’s outdoor activity.
Any Workout, Any Time
The Venu 2 makes it easy to switch up a stale fitness routine with a variety of workout options that include preloaded workouts on the watch, preset workouts available to download from Garmin Connect, and “create your own” customizable workouts with over 1,400 exercises to choose from. Over 75 preset animated workouts for cardio, yoga, strength, HIIT and Pilates demonstrate proper form and technique right in Garmin Connect or on the wrist. Whether training for a 5K or something longer, the Venu 2 is compatible with Garmin Coach free adaptive training plans.

Sleep Score and Advanced Sleep Monitoring
Get a score for your estimated sleep quality and insights on how you can do better. Even keep track of the different sleep stages as well as heart rate, stress and respiration.
Wrist-Based Heart Rate Monitoring
The watch constantly samples your estimated heart rate and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities — even while swimming.
When you want to relax or focus, you can start a breathwork activity, and this watch will track your stress and respiration to help you get a better understanding of how you’re breathing.
This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI or body fat percentage to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. You can get tips to lower your fitness age. Your Index/Index S2 smart scale is required to use body fat percentage metric.
