Garmin Venu 3 Review


The Garmin Venu 3 is a superb premium smartwatch aimed less at the fanatical athletic performance crowd, and a greater focus on wellness.

Great wellness features ; Premium build ; Superb battery life

Lightweight sports metrics ; Some patchy sleep data ; Not as slick as Apple Watch/Samsung

The Garmin Venu 3 is a superb premium smartwatch. It’s aimed less at the fanatical athletic performance crowd, and instead offers the best interpretation of wellness data I’ve seen on a Garmin so far, and a great alternative to Oura and Whoop. However,...

Garmin Venu 3 review: a holistic approach to wellness


Garmin's Venu 3 is a fitness tracker, wellness coach and smartwatch in one neat and discreet package

It’s not too big or bulky ; Provides access to Garmin’s in-depth fitness and health tools ; Smartphone notifications ; Beautiful AMOLED screen

Lacks navigational tools ; Watch faces feel cheap compared to rivals ; Basic looks

Billed as a capable all-rounder, the latest Venu 3 is about as close to a proper smartwatch as Garmin gets. It offers features like Garmin Pay, music from the wrist and smartphone notifications without turning its back on the brand’s fantastic fitness,...

Garmin Venu 3 review: On your marks, get set, rest


With its two-week battery, top-notch fitness tracking and large AMOLED display, there's loads to love.

Great fitness, health and recovery analysis ; Long battery life ; Contactless payments and offline music support ; Support for Android and iPhone ; 5ATM waterproof

Plain design ; Could be smoother and more responsive ; No wireless charging

With its comprehensive health tracking, excellent sleep analysis and recovery data, the Venu 3 is a stella fitness-focused smartwatch. The fact it can go two weeks between charges, and offers music and payments too rounds out a truly excellent wearable.

Garmin Venu 3 Review: Not Just For Runners Anymore - SlashGear


The Garmin Venu 3 is a smartwatch that has the majority of the functionality of an Apple Watch, but comes with a battery that lasts multiple times as long.

Garmin Venu 3 Review: Finally, a smartwatch with one-week battery life!


The Garmin Venu 3 is the closest alternative to an Apple Watch or a Galaxy Watch, but while the Venu 3 is just a bit short in functionality, it has a vastly longer battery life...

Comfortable, comes in two sizes ; Looong battery life! ; Excellent GPS accuracy ; Heart rate measurements are also very accurate ; Gorgeous OLED screen

Interface feels VERY outdated ; Plastic body might feel a bit cheap to some ; A digital crown would have been nice ; Poor selection of watch faces ; Not possible to tap on complications

Garmin Venu 3 review


The Garmin Venu 3 is one of the best smartwatches for fitness-tracking we've ever tested thanks to intuitive lifestyle guidance and up to two weeks of battery life. It might not have all the “smarts”

I will say the price similarity between the Garmin Venu 3 and Garmin Forerunner 265 may complicate the choice for those runners in the market for a smartwatch. I’d say that for training or goal-oriented needs, the Forerunner is the best option. But for...
