Unterschiede zwischen Garmin Venu und Venu 2The Venu 2* can do everything that its predecessor can. However, the newer Garmin Venu 2 can do a bit more.
SizeThe Garmin Venu is only available in one size and as a square variant (Garmin Venu Sq*). The Garmin Venu 2 comes in two variants. These are the Garmin Venu 2 and Garmin Venu 2s. In the comparison of the three models, the Garmin Venu is in the middle.
The diameters of the three models:
Die Durchmesser der drei Modelle:
ArmbänderIn this context, we can also directly look at the wristbands. The straps are interchangeable on all three models. However, the size of the straps is different:
- Garmin Venu: 20 mm
- Garmin Venu 2: 22 mm
- Garmin Venu 2s: 18 mm
The information is not only important for the optics, but also relevant if you want to buy interchangeable bracelets. The market for non-original wristbands is reletiv large and in my opinion also quite interesting. The selection is significantly larger.
In general, it can be said that the Garmin Venu 2 is made for larger arms and the Garmin Venu 2s for smaller arms. The situation is similar for the models of the Garmin Fenix 6. There again, the "s" stands for the small version. small effects this has on the performance, but more on that later.
DisplayAnother upgrade was made to the display. Furthermore, the Garmin Venu 2* is equipped with an AMOLED color display. An always-on display is specified on all models, but highlighted on the Garmin Venu 2 and Venu 2s.
In addition, the Garmin Venu 2 can also be read in bright light, which was a problem with many Garmin models, like the predecessor. Garmin has improved this.
Battery lifeGarmin has improved the battery life considerably. The performance has been doubled. The battery life of the Garmin Venu is up to 5 days. The Garmin Venu 2s has a battery life of up to 10 days. With the Garmin Venu 2, you even get a battery life of up to 11 days. In my opinion, a very good argument for the Garmin Venu 2.
When using music or the built-in GPS, which all three models have, the battery life naturally decreases. However, that is the case with every fitness watch.
Music storageNot quite as relevant, but still worth mentioning, is the music storage. All models have a built-in memory for music. However, it differs in size.
- Garmin Venu: bis zu 500 Titel
- Garmin Venu 2: bis zu 650 Titel
- Garmin Venu 2s: bis zu 650 Titel
Of course, this is relative, because music files always have different sizes.
Training modesThe Garmin Venu, as well as the Garmin Vivoactive 4 are already the models for the general athlete. Furthermore, this is also the case with the Garmin Venu 2 series.
However, there are even more sports to choose from here. The optimization for weight training, which is hardly available in any fitness watch, is exciting. For me as a strength athlete, this is of course an interesting topic.
However, at first glance it sounds more exciting than it is. It is more or less a guided training session. It shows you which muscles are being used during the workout. This can be interesting for beginners. For advanced users, the tracking of high scores, which the new watch enables, could be interesting.
HIIT workouts are rightly becoming more and more popular. These are only possible with the Garmin Venu 2. The problem with many watches was that the short workload with many pauses could not be measured properly.
Which Garmin Venu is better?Based on the facts, the Garmin Venu 2* already offers more. Of course, you have to decide whether these features are worth the extra cost.
- Longer battery life (10 - 11 days)
- Two sizes to choose from (Venu 2 and Venu 2s)
- Optimized display (readability at brightness)
- Always-on display (highlighted)
- Larger music storage
- More training modes (e.g. weight training and HIIT)
For me personally, the arguments speak for the purchase of the Garmin Venu 2*. With the purchase of the Garmin Venu* you can of course save a few euros.
Is it worth switching to the Garmin Venu 2?If you already own the older Garmin Venu, you may be wondering whether a switch could be interesting. Of course, the differences remain the same. The Garmin Venu is now just under 1.5 years old. A change to the Venu 2* is not absolutely necessary, but you get a few really good innovations.Garmin
Venu 2 or Garmin Venu 2s?
Ultimately, the big difference between the two devices is only the size and battery life. If you have a slim arm, I recommend the Garmin Venu 2s*. If you have a larger arm, you should buy the Garmin Venu 2*. The battery life also differs only slightly by a day.
