Where are the differences?

Let's check out the differences between the two Wearable Amazfit GTS 2* and Garmin Venu 2* in detail.

Release Date

Both products were released in two consecutive years. The Amazfit GTS 2 was released in 2020. Consequently, the Garmin Venu 2 from 2021 is newer.

Display

You'll get a display with both devices. Here, both Wearable have an integrated color display. In both cases, there is a touch display. The display technology is the same with both devices, and have a AMOLED display. The Amazfit GTS 2 has a bigger display with 1,65 ". The diameter of the Venu 2 counts 1,30 ". Both devices give you the opportunity to use the always-on function.

Waterproof

Both, the GTS 2, as well as the Venu 2 are waterproof, and have no further difference in this feature. Both Wearable can be used under water in depths of up to 50 m.

Battery

The Amazfit GTS 2 has a battery lasting 7 days, which is comparatively less than the Garmin Venu 2 that lasts 11 days.

GPS

Both Wearable feature an integrated GPS. This will provide you with a higher accuracy than your smartphone's GPS. This is generally also called Connected GPS. the Venu 2 uses the GALILEO technology for more accurate positioning. GLONASS is only supported with the GTS 2.

Heart Rate Monitor

A fitness watch without a heart rate monitor is basically useless and not advisable to buy. That's because your heart rate is one of the key elements of different calculations. For example, many devices without a heart rate monitor claim to count your calories burned too. That number will hardly be right without having access to your heart rate.

Comparing the Amazfit GTS 2 and the Garmin Venu 2, both devices offer the heart rate monitor function and score in our books. On top of that, both will monitor your heart rate 24/7. Some devices only do that when you press a button, which is practically speaking rather useless.

Measured values

Both Wearable offer you the possibility to record your sleep time. A sleep analysis can also be done, but only with the Amazfit GTS 2. The Venu 2 does not have this feature.

With the Garmin Venu 2 the data is stored up to 8 days.

Bracelet

Being able to change your fitness watch band is a great advantage. You'll only have to worry about the color of the device itself, and not the color or material of its accompanying watch band. For pretty much every device, you can get cheap watch bands that will fit your device. You can make use of this advantage with both devices of this comparison.

Smarct functions

Getting call, text, or other notifications is a feature that both tools have. Often times, this feature is only possible with an Android device. iOS user can be left behind on this. With the Venu 2 you also have the option to send QuickReplies with the device.

Being led through your workout by your device is only supported with the Garmin Venu 2. That's a difference to the Amazfit GTS 2, where this feature is not supported.

Contactless payment

Contactless payment is a highly useful and more in demand than ever technology. Many Wearable already offer it. Being able to do this from your wrist is even more convenient than using your smartphone or a credit card. the Amazfit GTS 2 and the Garmin Venu 2 both offer this useful feature. With the GTS 2, Alipay is being used. The GTS 2 works with Garmin Pay. The provider Alipay is however only available in Asia. In Europe and the USA contactless payment cannot be used.
