Garmin has today launched the new Venu 3 and Venu 3S smartwatches with several improvements. Although the smartwatches look similar to Venu 2 and 2S, they bring new health-tracking modes, including one that lets you track your naps. The wearables bring up to a 14-day battery life and AMOLED touchscreens.
The Venu 3S measures 41 mm and the Venu is 45 mm. Garmin is introducing new health and fitness features for the Venu 3 series, including nap detection, sleep coaching, and meditation. These features are designed to help users track their sleep, improve their mental wellness, and recover from workouts.
Garmin is also making the Venu 3 more inclusive by introducing a dedicated wheelchair mode and incorporating new workouts tailored for wheelchair users. The Venu 3 boasts a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with a crisp 454 x 454-pixel resolution, while its counterpart,the Venu 3S, features a slightly smaller 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a native resolution of 390 x 390 pixels.
Notably, Garmin positions its extended battery life as a distinguishing feature. The company claims up to 10 days of battery life for the more compact Venu 3S and an impressive 14 days for the Venu 3. It’s worth noting that these battery life estimates do decrease significantly when GNSS location services are activated. For instance, with all-systems GNSS mode engaged, the Venu 3 is rated for up to 20 hours of use. The Venu 3 series also comes with 8 GB of built-in storage and an NFC chip for making contactless payments.
The Garmin Venu 3 series is available for purchase at a price tag of US$449.99. This is for all finishes and sizes.
