It's being offered in three colours - white and gold, grey, or black. The 20mm straps are quick release, so easy to swap around. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Venu 2 Plus sees an AMOLED display in the front, offering touch, with three buttons on the body. That offers a mix of touch or button control. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
When connected to a smartphone (Apple or Android) you'll be able to make calls from your watch - either with the dialer or via your contacts list. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's also support for Siri, Google Assistant or Bixby on your connected phone - so you can access those services via your watch quickly. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Because this is a Garmin, there's support for loads of supports with all the sensors on board so you know how far, fast, how hard you exercised. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is available now, priced at $449.99 in the US and offers a step forward in smartwatch functionality for Garmin. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
