Garmin Venu Sq 2 vs Venu Sq — What's New?

The main differences with the 2022 Garmin Venu Sq 2 are the addition of the AMOLED display and majorly increased battery power.

Otherwise, these generations are very similar in size, style, and function.

Finally, the Venu Sq 2 features the same vibrant screen as the Venu 2/2S and the Venu 2 Plus—this Garmin watch lineup is complete now!

Additionally, the new Sq 2 offers almost twice the battery life as the original Venu Sq: up to 11 days in smartwatch mode and 26 hours in GPS mode!

Previously, the Garmin Venu Sq offered only up to 6 days in smartwatch mode, 14 hours in GPS, and 6 hours in GPS with music.

In this Venu Sq 2 lineup, there are only 6 watches, rather than 9.

And lastly, let's talk Garmin Venu Sq 2 price: $249.99 for the standard and $299.99 for the music edition.

This is a $50 increase in both models—but with these upgrades, totally worth it!

And that means more accuracy for you!

Does the Venu Sq 2 Have Navigation?

The Venu Sq 2, like other Garmin Venu watches, does not offer navigation at this price point.

It does, however, have a back to start feature that will help you get back to your start location during an outdoor activity that uses GPS with the help of the built-in compass.

This GPS fitness watch aslo has an accelerometer and a thermometer.

If you would like a GPS watch with navigation, you should check out the more advanced Garmin fēnix 7, epix (Gen 2), Forerunner 255, Forerunner 955, or Instinct 2/2S series.

Other sensors on the Venu Sq 2 include the latest Garmin Elevate wrist-based heart rate monitor, Pulse Ox blood oxygen saturation monitor, and ambient light sensor.

Compare Garmin Venu 2/2S vs Venu Sq 2

Now that the Venu Sq 2 has an AMOLED display, the differences are few between these Garmin watches.

The Venu Sq 2 has a square case and display, while the Venu 2/2S is round.

The Garmin Venu 2/2S series offers 2 sizes: a 40 mm case with a 1.1" display on the Venu 2S, and a 45 mm case with a 1.3" display on the Venu 2.

All watches in the Venu 2 series come with on-watch music storage of up to 650 songs. You will have to buy the Venu Sq 2 Music edition if you want music on watch, which is up to 500 songs.

These watches are very similar in health, fitness, and smart features. One thing the Venu 2 has that the Venu Sq 2 does not offer is a barometric altimeter, which provides elevation data.

Then, there's price. The Venu 2/2S costs $399.99, while the Venu Sq 2 is $249.99 and the Venu Sq 2 Music costs $299.99.

Compare Garmin Venu 2 Plus vs Venu Sq 2

The Venu 2 Plus has something different than all the watches in the Garmin Venu family—and all Garmin's smartwatches.

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus has a built-in microphone and speaker, which allows for Bluetooth phone calling and voice assistant support, when paired with your compatible smartphone.

Aside from this pretty major difference, that puts the Venu 2 Plus at $200-$250 more than the Venu Sq 2/Venu Sq 2 Music, there is a lot of common ground bewteen these watches.

The Venu 2 Plus has one size with a 43.6 mm case and 1.3" display.
