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.

doghooksHappened to see them in the ‘Artists’ section of New Hampshire Craigslist.

Not going to bother providing a link since posts of Craigslist come and go — and some are taken out after ‘x’ days. So, if I include a link, and the post disappears, I have people yelling at me. SO, if you are interested, go to the ‘Artists’ section and do a search on ‘dog-sculpted’. If the post is still there you should be able to find it.

At a start price of $45 each, they are a bit steep — but I know that money is never an issue for most dog lovers. Yes, she can make customized ones, at $60 + p&p I think, from your photographs. Maybe I might get two made for Deanna for her birthday of Ulysses and Maya. But, she will be upset if they break and I get the feeling that they look eminently breakable — especially with kids around.
