The Garmin Public Beta 15.10 has been released for the Venu 2, Venu 2S and Venu 2 Plus smartwatches. The update is nearly identical to the last two but is the first in the 15.xx cycle for the Venu 2 Plus. The latest software should be automatically pushed to wearables enrolled on the Beta Program.
Garmin has released Public Beta 15.10 for the Venu 2, Venu 2S and Venu 2 Plus smartwatches. The update is almost identical to the previous two versions, 15.08 and 15.09, released within the last month. The change log lists the addition of the Gaming activity, a feature to track Esports, and bug fixes and improvements to Connect IQ.
Where version 15.10 differs from 15.09 and 15.08 is the additional eligibility of the Venu 2 Plus for the update; the previous versions were only for owners of the Venu 2 and Venu 2S wearables. Plus, compared to v15.09, v15.10 also lacks the additional Sensor Hub software 25.60 update. This firmware controls the optical heart rate module on the smartwatch; it is unclear precisely what improvements the newer version may offer.
If you own a Garmin Venu 2, Venu 2S or Venu 2 Plus and are enrolled in the Beta Program, the update should automatically be pushed to your wearable. You can also download the latest software manually from the Main menu > Settings > System > Software Update. Garmin notes that the update may take several hours to download and install. If you wish to join the Beta Program, you can do so via Garmin Connect.
