Garmin has unveiled its latest wearables at the ongoing CES 2022 tradeshow. The company has added two smartwatches to its catalog, the Venu 2 Plus and the Vivomove Sport. The Venu 2 Plus joins the existing Venu 2 series but brings two key new features, the ability to take phone calls and voice assistant control. The Vivomove Sport on the other hand is an entry-level addition to the Vivomove lineup. This new Vivomove Sport looks like a traditional analog watch but has the health tracking and connected features of a smartwatch.
