What: Garmin Venu 2S Sports Watch
Why: The Garmin Venu 2S is like a personal trainer on your wrist, featuring over 25 pre-loaded sports apps, animated onscreen workouts (which you can customise from more than 1400 exercises on the Garmin Connect app), and tracking for hydration, respiration, heart rate, energy levels and women’s health. A Health Snapshot feature records key stats and vitals after just a two-minute session, and the Pulse OX sensor will spot check blood oxygen saturation. The Venu 2S also offers advanced sleep monitoring that scores the quality of your kip and offers tips if there’s room for improvement. Smart notifications, playlists, safety and tracking features can also be accessed when the watch is paired with a smartphone, and the battery will last up to 10 days in smartwatch mode (with a rapid charge option if it’s running low). It’s durable, too, with Gorilla Glass 3 and water-rated to five ATM.

An integrated spotlight – that works in tandem with colour night vision – will deter intruders, along with a built-in smart siren that can be triggered automatically or remotely. The weather-resistant Arlo Pro 4 easily connects to a Wi-Fi network and a wall mount and screw kit is included for installation.
