Garmin introduced the Venu 3 and Venu 3S. Starting at €500/$450, you get pretty much all of the health and fitness tracking features that Garmin currently has to offer. There are also some new features – for example, the two smartwatches can now also recognize naps and add them to the overall sleep tracking. In addition, sleep monitoring includes Pulse Ox (blood oxygen) and HRV (heart rate variability).
Like other Garmin watches, the Venu 3 also displays a Body Battery with a scale from 1 to 100%, which reflects the wearer’s daily load. Another new feature is wheelchair mode, which records daily movements instead of steps and provides weight shift alerts.
The Garmin Venu 3 is based on a 1.4-inch always-on AMOLED display, while the Venu 3S has a slightly smaller 1.2-inch display. The watches come standard with 22mm and 18mm straps. The case is made from fiber reinforced polymer while the bezel is made from stainless steel. Garmin also installs a Gorilla Glass 3 front glas for protection.
The Garmin Venu 3 is now available in a 45 mm version in the color combinations whitestone/silver and black/slate. The 41 mm Venu 3S is available in the colors pebble grey/slate, sage grey/silver, French grey/soft gold, dusty rose/soft gold and ivory/soft gold.
