Garmin has just announced its newest wearables during the ongoing CES 2022 event. The company has launched new smartwatches, including the Venu 2 Plus and Vivomove Sport.
Venu 2 Plus
The American brand unveiled the latest addition to the Venu 2 series during the event, which finally received two important features. This includes taking phone calls and support for voice assistant control. The Venu 2 Plus features a 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 416 x 416 pixels, Always On mode, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. It is available in a single case size of 43mm and comes with an interchangeable 20mm silicone strap.
The new smartwatch also comes with the usual fitness-related features, allowing it to track physical activity both indoors and outdoors. It even comes with an automatic incident detection feature that alerts emergency contacts with the user’s location. Garmin states that the Venu 2 Plus can last up to 9 days on a single full charge and up to 8 days with GPS and music mode enabled. This smartwatch supports fast charging, which adds a day’s use to just 10 minutes of charging.
The Vivomove Sport from the company is a hybrid watch, which joins the existing Vivomove series. It adopts a small analog design with a hidden touch screen at the bottom of the case. When the user interacts with the screen, the physical hand moves away to offer a clear view. Furthermore, this screen displays important information such as incoming calls, text messages, along with important health-related trackers such as heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep tracking, and step mapping.
