Garmin Venu Sq vs Vivoactive 4 Comparison Chart

Spread the love

Yesterday, I compared the Venu Sq with Venu, and today, it’s the Venu Sq vs Vivoactive 4. If you recall, Vivoactive 4 was released alongside Venu last year, the difference between these two is that the Venu has a richer AMOLED display while Vivoactive 4 has a MIP LCD display. On the other hand, Venu Sq which was recently released lacks an AMOLED display, animated onscreen workout, and can’t count floors. In other words, the Venu Sq is a lower-end and cheaper alternative to Vivoactive 4 or Venu. This comparison chart compares Garmin Venu Sq vs Vivoactive 4 based on design, features, battery life, price, and storage to help you make a more informed choice.

Which is Better?

The Vivoactive 4 is obviously a better smartwatch than Venu Sq, it has more fitness tracking features and longer battery life. However, Venu Sq is cheaper and a comprehensive fitness tracker with a long battery life.
