Garmin Venu Review: Sporty everyday


The Venu has a solid list of features that will cater to the vast majority of people who are fitness followers, but not fanatics.

AMOLED Display ; Activity Tracking ; Workout Animations ; Loads of Sensors

Lack of in-depth fitness metrics ; Lack of storage

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

The whole point of this Garmin Venu review is to figure out who this device is for. The people who will get the most out of the Venu are existing Garmin fans who have been wanting an OLED display on their beloved fitness watches. Garmin certainly...

Garmin Venu review


The Garmin Venu is a good fitness tracker and smartwatch thanks to built-in GPS, workout animations and tons of helpful health features.

As an iPhone user, it wasn’t as seamless as the Apple Watch but also provided a lot more health metrics. That said, there’s no denying that if you want a smartwatch to precisely measure your sleep, stress, exercise, body energy and other health...

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: fitness-ready AMOLED smartwatch for the masses


As the first AMOLED device in the Garmin wearable lineup, is this the firm's answer to the Apple Watch?

Vibrant AMOLED display ; Comfortable ; Full suite of fitness features ; Offline music support

Somewhat boring design ; Touchscreen can be fiddly

The Venu is Garmin’s answer to the Apple Watch impresses with a striking AMOLED screen and the firm’s usual top-end fitness-tracking tech. The overall design is not anything to rave about but the Garmin Venu is certainly comfortable to wear and workout...

Garmin Venu review


The Garmin Venu is the first Garmin watch to feature an AMOLED display, and it's paired with a solid selection of fitness tracking and general smartwatch features that make this watch a great all-rounder. Garmin might be known for active wristwear, but...

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 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.
