The forthcoming Garmin Venu 2 Plus has been shown in a few additional photographs that have been made public. These, in contrast to the others, have a high resolution and display the product from a variety of perspectives. It is a reasonably safe bet that the timepiece will make its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in 2022. Because of the number of leaks, you shouldn’t be shocked if the debut date is moved up to sooner rather than later.
The Venu is Garmin’s primary offering in the category of all-purpose smartwatches; it is currently on its second iteration. The Apple Watch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch, and, to a lesser extent, the fitness-focused smartwatches produced by Fitbit are its primary competitors in the market.
At the beginning of November, we were made aware of the possibility that Venu would receive an update. People obtained the initial photographs from a tweet that journalist Dave Zatz shared, and other than the appearance of the device, they did not tell many much.
Venu 2 Plus aka Pro
The Venu 2 Plus (or Pro, as it is frequently referred to) has an appearance that is not drastically different from the standard model. It appears that the most significant change is the inclusion of a physical button on the side that is to the right. According to reports, consumers will use the third button on the device to activate the microphone in some fashion. This might be to support a voice assistant, or it could be so one can take that smartwatch calls from the wrist.
Aside from that, there isn’t much more information that can be gleaned from the leaks. It has been stated in a Taiwanese retail listing, which may or may not be accurate, that the device will come with a display of 1.4 inches. To refresh your memory, the most recent generation has a screen that is 1.3 inches and fits into a case that is 45 millimeters, while the version that is 40 millimeters smaller has a display that is 1.1 inches.
First renders in high resolution of the Venu 2 Plus have been made available. They display not only the front panel but also the profile and the back of the device in extensive detail. Evan Blass, who is infamous for leaking information, posted them on Twitter earlier today.
If you look closely at the back of the book, you’ll see that the case of the watch measures 43 millimeters. This results in it being of a size that is somewhat smaller than the two varieties that are currently available. If the 1.4-inch display measurement information turns out to be accurate, then the only way Garmin could have accomplished this would be to reduce the size of the bezel around the screen. There will likely be one size option available for the Plus version.
One of the renders shows the back of the clock, which reveals that it is equipped with music playback capability, GPS/Multi GNSS, 5 ATM water resistance, and Gorilla Glass protection. But this brings us to the conclusion of the details.
There is a great deal of conjecture surrounding many other Garmin watches. It is possible that there is a backlog because the corporation has delivered a lower number of gadgets this year as compared to previous years. This can be inferred from the fact that the FCC has given its blessing to a number of different watches produced by the company over the course of the last few months. Particularly among Garmin users, there is a great deal of enthusiasm about the Fenix 7 watch from Garmin. Other watches such as the Vivosmart 5 and the Forerunner 955 are also on our radar for the not-too-distant future, specifically the first or second quarter of 2022. All of these are in need of a recent revision.
