Now, before the new year, the Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a great deal

At just £279, the stylish Garmin Venu 2 Plus is currently available for the lowest price yet. Considering the device’s original retail price of £399.99 at launch last year, that represents an incredible deal.

When it comes to fitness tracking, Garmin’s wearables remain the best on the market, and the Venu 2 Plus is a fantastic way to get started with the company’s ecosystem. This is true even though the Apple Watch and a select few Wear OS devices, such as the TicWatch Pro 5, are excellent smartwatches in and of themselves.

There is an abundance of workouts available for tracking, and the Garmin Coach software can assist you in your training efforts for races such as the 5K, 10K, or marathon. Furthermore, you can be confident that the heart rate data you’re receiving from Garmin accurately represents how your body is reacting to specific workouts because the company makes some of the best heart rate tracking devices available.

Aside from NFC payments (with some banks) via Garmin Pay, you also have access to a ton of fantastic smart features, such as the ability to listen to music offline from Spotify and Amazon Music. AMOLED display, on the other hand, is what really sets the Venu 2 Plus apart from other gadgets in Garmin’s lineup.

AMOLED displays accurately all of your watch faces, in contrast to Garmin’s preference for memory-in-pixel displays. It’s also very convenient to read outside, which comes in handy when you need to quickly glance at any important information.

The Venu 2 Plus boasts a more streamlined design in addition to one other significant improvement over the Venu 2, which is the ability to use a built-in microphone to access a digital smart assistant. Tasks can be completed entirely from your wrist thanks to the feature’s compatibility with Siri and Google Assistant, which is made possible by Garmin’s wearables for both iOS and Android smartphones.

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus was already a terrific choice for anyone looking for a feature-rich fitness watch to help them reach their goals for all of these reasons, but considering how much less it costs, it’s an easy choice.
