Description

The Garmin Venu is a stylish and elegant fitness-focused smartwatch that’s equipped to track your active life, plus onboard music storage and a long battery life that keeps you going for about a week.

The Venu was released alongside the Vivoactive 4S and 4, the difference between these three is the difference in display technology. While a more colorful AMOLED powers the display of the Venu, transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP) powers the display of the Vivoactive 4S and 4.

AMOLED powers the always-on 1.2 inches touch-sensitive display of the Venu, while the body is also sturdily built with durable materials. The case material is made of fiber-reinforced polymer with polymer rear cover, the bezel spots stainless steel which adds some attractive appearance to the watch, while the 20mm straps are made of silicone. It’s also very lightweight at 46.3g, and you can easily customize the watch face simply by downloading the one you like from Garmin Connect IQ store.

The Venu comes with a 4GB storage capacity that allows you to store up to 500 of your favorite files on the watch. You can also stream your favorite tracks from popular services like Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer.

With a handful of sensors onboard, the Venu will track your daily activities such as sleep, heart rate, calories, stress, blood oxygen, VO2 Max., menstrual cycle, outdoor activity tracking, and a host of other activities listed in the table below.

This watch will keep you connected to all that matters to you so you don’t get to miss important updates such as SMS, calls, emails, reminders and other notifications from both native and third-party apps. You can also reply to notifications by preset text response. You can also pay from this watch via Garmin Pay.

The Battery life is also great, from a single charge, you can expect about 5 days long battery life and over 15hours with continuous GPS tracking.
