Who said that gamers can’t benefit from a smartwatch? Nowadays, you can play a game on pretty much any device you can imagine: a laptop, tablet, smartphone, TV, and so on. Don’t be surprised if, soon enough, you can play games even on a smart refrigerator as a way of getting rid of anxiety if you don’t find any food inside!

Notebookcheck has discovered on Garmin Beta Forums that for the Garmin Venu 2 and 2S smartwatches, the Garmin Pre-Rollout Beta 15.04 has been made available. Although the update adds a new function for gamers, it is just tiny and signals the beginning of a new beta cycle.
