Garmin Venu review: Vibrant AMOLED display makes this one of the best GPS sports watches for the masses Review | ZDNet


Garmin has always beaten the smartwatch market, including the Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch models, when it comes to the vast amount of health data tracked by its wearables. With the inclusion of a brilliant AMOLED display, the Venu is clearly a...

Lovely AMOLED display ; Responsive touchscreen interface ; Advanced health tracking and fitness features ; High quality materials, fit, and finish ; Offline music and Garmin Pay support ; Animated workouts

Battery life bit shorter due to AMOLED display

Garmin Venu review: Garmin goes OLED


The Garmin Venu can't compete with more established smartwatches like the Apple Watch Series 5 or Fossil Gen 5, but it has a leg up in fitness tracking. In fact, it's one of the best (if not THE best) multisport watches you can buy right now. If you've...

Crisp OLED screen with an always-on display ; Garmin Pay support is convenient ; Music storage is standard ; 5-day battery life ; Unique breathwork exercises ; Accurate fitness and health tracking ; Useful and accurate sleep tracking

Touchscreen can be finicky ; High price

Garmin Venu review: Fitness expertise with many pixels left to fill


Garmin dives into AMOLED with this $399 smartwatch, but the execution is shallow.

Bold and bright AMOLED display.

Only one case size.

However, I do believe Garmin can make its software more AMOLED-friendly by using more exciting graphics and animations while also maintaining the stellar battery life that the Venu currently has. Garmin wearables may never be as intuitive as Apple's or...

Garmin Venu review: Garmin's first true smartwatch


Garmin's first true smartwatch delivers a colour touchscreen display & an abundance of fitness tracking. It's longer-lasting than an Apple Watch too.

Bright and sharp display ; Plenty of sports tracking features ; Solid battery life

Design a little uninspiring ; Shorter battery life in always-on mode ; Garmin Connect still a bit overwhelming

If you're looking for a true smartwatch with a colour screen that can outlast the Apple Watch, the Venu is your answer.

Garmin Venu review


Garmin gets smart with its first AMOLED sports watch.

Vibrant AMOLED display Full suite of fitness features Offline music support

Design is slightly generic Limited range of apps Touchscreen can be fiddly

With a brilliant display, strong battery life and a full suite of fitness features, the Garmin Venu is one of the best all-round activity trackers. While its app library and touch interface won’t trouble the Apple Watch, the Venu is also a stellar...

Garmin Venu review: Garmin’s first-ever GPS AMOLED smartwatch


The screen and sports-tracking features are impressive, but the Venu lacks the smarts to really compete with the Apple Watch

Vibrant, always-on AMOLED screen ; Music playback with Spotify support ; Guided workouts with animations

Shorter battery life than other Garmin watches ; Same features as Vivoactive 4 ; Limited app store

The result is that the Venu isn't quite the do-it-all smartwatch you might have been hoping for. If you’re after an excellent multisport watch that lasts days between charges, I’d personally stick to with Vivoactive range, and if you want a device that...
