I’m a smartwatch reviewer, and this Garmin Venu 2 Black Friday deal is better than most Apple Watches

There are some really good Black Friday Garmin deals on five-star watches at the moment, including the excellent Garmin Venu 2. It’s rated higher than any recent Apple Watch, even the super-premium Apple Watch Ultra 2, thanks to just the right balance of features, performance and value.

If you’re looking for a Black Friday smartwatch deal and you have an iPhone, the first thing you’ll probably do is look for an Apple Watch. However, if you’re specifically looking for an Apple Watch that will help you improve your fitness, we can recommend an offer, and it’s actually not one of the best Apple Watch models. Garmins can be used with any device, Apple or Android, and offer one of the best, most detailed companion apps on the market in Garmin Connect.
