Garmin launches Venu 2 Plus and Vivosport smartwatches at CES 2022
At the CES 2022 trade show, Garmin has showcased its latest wearables. The Venu 2 Plus and Vivomove Sport smartwatches have been introduced to the company’s lineup. With the addition of the Venu 2 Plus, the Venu 2 series has the capacity to make and receive phone calls, as well as voice assistant control. However, the Vivomove Sport is an entry-level product in the Vivomove family. Vivomove Sport is an analog watch with smartwatch functionality and health tracking capabilities.
Specifications of Garmin Venu 2 Plus
The Garmin Venu 2 Plus has a 1.3-inch AMOLED display and is available in a 43mm casing. The AMOLED screen features a resolution of 416 × 416 pixels, is always on, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The case contains user-replaceable 20mm silicone straps with quick-release mechanisms.
The new Garmin Venu 2 Plus has a built-in microphone and speaker, allowing the wearer to make and receive phone calls directly from the device. Using the Venu 2 Plus, you may also call up your smartphone’s virtual assistant. Also, all of the fitness functions found in Venu 2 watches have been ported over, so you can use this watch for both indoor and outdoor exercise. Automatic event detection, which can warn emergency contacts with regard to the user’s location, is also available on the Venu 2 Plus.
A nine-day wristwatch battery life and an eight-day GPS + music battery life are both claimed by Garmin for the Venu 2 Plus. With just 10 minutes of charge, the smartwatch’s rapid charging capability adds nearly a day of smartwatch mode use. In addition to iPhones and Android devices, the Garmin Venu 2 Plus may be used with both.
The Price and availability of the Garmin Venu 2 Plus
Priced around $450, the Garmin Venu 2 Plus is already available for purchase. Slate Stainless-Steel Bezel in black and Ivory Cream Gold Stainless-Steel Bezel in Ivory are the three color possibilities for the watch.
Specifications of the Garmin Vivomove Sport
As the fourth member of the Vivomove family, the Vivomove Sport is also a hybrid timepiece. The analog look of the new Vivomove Sport conceals a small touchscreen display in the case’s lower half. When using the touchscreen, the watch’s actual hands move away from the display so that the user can see clearly. Information such as heart rate and blood oxygen levels can be displayed on this screen.
If you’re out and about and using the Vivomove Sport outside, Garmin claims that the device can properly detect distance and track different types of exercises. It’s compatible with both iPhones and Android phones. Messages like as incoming phone calls, texts, and emails can all be displayed on the hybrid watch. When using the Vivomove Sport in Smartwatch mode, you can expect 5 days of battery life, and 6 days in Watch mode.
How much does a Garmin Vivomove Sport cost?
Currently on sale, the Garmin Vivomove Sport costs $180. Cool Mint with Silver accents, Black with Slate accents, Ivory with Peach Gold accents, and Cocoa with Peach Gold accents are the four case colors offered.
