- Adaptive Brightness Only. No static brightness set- January 9, 2021
Functional watch, but the brightness settings kill it for me. Brightness settings are Low, Med, High. However each one is adaptive brightness. Adaptive brightness should be an option, not mandatory. I struggle to read the screen in low light situations since it brings the brightness of the screen down so much (even on the High setting). If this makes it back to Garmin, this needs to be addressed in a software update. There are forum entries about this for over a year now and still nothing has been done to address it. I don't use adaptive brightness on my phone for the same reason, don't force it onto my watch. Currently unhappy about my purchase.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- UI needs improvement- December 29, 2020
I have been a long time Fitbit user but got fed up with the devices constantly dying immediately outside of the warranty period. So, I decided to give Garmin a try instead. I'm only in the first week of ownership but so far I really like the Garmin Connect app - great detail and stats. The Venu SQ itself is a bit disappointing so far though. The watch is laggy and somewhat buggy. For instance, the screen brightness with randomly fluctuate and the wrist motion to turn the screen on rarely ever works. I am hopeful that there might be a software update to remedy these issues. I'm wondering if I should have spent a bit more $ and got the Venu instead. I'm not sure if it would have the same issues or not.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- first gps watch - great intro model!- October 20, 2020
i've run for decades and never had a gps watch. (i know, right, what was i thinking?) after a runner friend loaned me their apple watch for a run, I was hooked. it was instantly obvious i was missing something. i bought Venu SQ (without music) as the entry to the field of gps/health watches. i went with garmin - instead of apple - so i could have independent logging of runs and health stats. i will use strava + garmin for record keeping. (this is a huge upgrade from what i was doing: using mapmyrun to create a route & then running it with my indestructible casio g shock to keep pace/time).
