Garmin introduces Venu 3, competing with Apple and Galaxy watches
Garmin’s Venu lineup continues to push the boundaries of wearable technology with the latest addition, the Venu 3. This new watch features a range of innovative functions that take health and fitness tracking to the next level. With its new Sleep Coaching tech, that even detects naps, guided meditation, and even a wheelchair mode, the Venu 3 is shaping up to be one of the most advanced fitness watches on the market.
The Venu 3 features a smarter UI, and an upgraded Elevate v5 sensor capable of ECG readings and skin temperature readings (though the latter is still dormant). It also includes a mic and speaker, a first for the Venu lineup. However, while it boasts new and exciting features, the Venu 3 falls short in terms of specific training tools, as well as phone connectivity and cellular support.
The Venu 3 also made headlines with its design. With a sleek stainless steel bezel and a Quick Release band, the Venu 3 offers a comfortable and customizable fit. The display, an AMOLED panel with a narrow bezel, provides a clear and bright view, although it lacks the same protective glass found in similar fitness watches.
Despite its minor shortcomings, the Venu 3 brings Garmin closer to industry leaders such as Apple and Samsung. Priced at $450, it’s already making waves in the tech world, offering an intriguing alternative to mainstream smartwatches. Available on popular retail sites, this latest Garmin watch has already seen a $25 price drop, making it more accessible to budget-conscious consumers.
Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast looking for advanced health tracking or a smartwatch user in search of a new device, the Garmin Venu 3 offers a compelling option. As it continues to evolve, Garmin’s Venu lineup is certainly making its mark in the wearable tech industry, and the Venu 3 could be the brand’s biggest success yet.
