The Garmin Venu Sq is the company’s answer to the slew of budget sport focussed smartwatches hitting the market in 2020, and is a cheaper option for those looking for a Garmin on their wrists.
It’s Garmin’s answer to devices like the Huawei Watch GT2e, Amazfit GTS2 and even the Apple Watch SE, which all boast diverse workout tracking modes and competitive price tags.
And indeed the Garmin Venu Sq undercuts the company’s own Garmin Venu and Vivoactive 4. But what is sacrificed? And is the Venu Sq a smart buy? We’ve been testing to find out. If you were looking at the Huawei Watch GT2e it’s great value at £139.99, but the ecosystem and app aren’t nearly as good as the Garmin Venu Sq.
But if you did want to spend more money then you can currently pick up the Garmin Venu for around £220 and the Garmin Vivoactive 4 for around the same.
