The New Garmin Venu 2: Two 3rd-Party Watch Faces & Customized ‘Walk’ Screens.

by Anura Guruge


The above is the ‘Rails‘ watch face — which I have been favoring all day.


The ‘Data Lover’ watch face — which I am getting quite partial to, but, for now ‘Rails’ is winning.

The ‘Always On’ displays I have chosen with these two watch faces. The ‘Rails‘ ‘hollow time’ on the left. ‘Data Lover’ is more customizable (though ‘Rails’ does give you the option of always having the full watch face on, all the time).


I customized the 4 data screens you get for ‘Walk’. You can ONLY have 4 fields per screen. I would have preferred the 6 that you can get on the Fenix & Enduro.

I customized the 4 data screens you get for ‘Walk‘. I am quite pleased in that I managed to get in everything I absolutely need, i.e., steps, distance (in miles), elapsed time, time-of-day (TOD).

I am not that fussed about the other fields, though I do occasionally look at my heart rate (HR).

Pace is kind of immaterial in that I am always going as fast as I can … as fast as I want. I am NOT going to increase my pace because of the reading.

I picked ‘heading’ because that was about the only pertinent data field left. I have no interest in calories.

‘Elevation’ is kind of nice to have.

I got this new Venu 2, two-days ago, thanks to my good friends at ‘HRM USA‘. SMILE.
