Reviews consensus: Garmin’s Venu Sq 2 gets a big display upgrade over the original. The Sq 2 has clear advantages over both the Apple Watch SE and Fitbit Versa 4. Its stat accuracy is better than Fitbit’s. Battery life is a world apart from Apple’s. As with any other great Garmin, the Venu Sq 2 provides good exercise tracking chops in a watch you don’t have to charge that often.
Buy it if: You want a light fitness tracker that has a bright and sharp display screen. With the Garmin Venu Sq 2, you get plenty of Garmin’s hardcore sport-tracking genetics, ideal if you’re switching over from one of our other best Garmin watches. The battery can last up to 11 days, and during testing, we found the heart rate tracking to be especially accurate.
Don't buy it if: An altimeter is important to you. Unfortunately, you can’t check your altitude or record the number of stairs you climb on the Garmin Venu Sq 2. Furthermore, one thing we didn’t like during testing was that the GPS can take up to a couple of minutes to triangulate when you’re in a new area. This became frustrating at times.
