The Garmin Venu 2 Plus offers the same specifications as the Venu 2 with an extra microphone and speaker. This means that it is possible to call or control the voice assistant via this watch if it is connected to a smartphone. In addition, they can handle, for example, sleep, stress and physical activity tracking or contactless payment using Garmin Pay. There is also support for GPS, GLONASS and Galileo navigation systems, a barometric altimeter and a heart rate sensor.
