The Garmin Venu arrived yesterday and after some tinkering I came to some quick conclusions-
Finally, Garmin is using a decent quality screen that rivals the Apple Watch and it includes a cut down always-on display.
You can expect 2-3 days of battery life using the always-on display feature.
The fitness tracking is superb and extremely versatile.
It is quite big which is not deal, but arguably roughly the same real estate as the 44mm Apple Watch, but with a round form.
I was then going to write up a quick review, but I found this article which is so good I decided not to bother. Just have a read of it if you are considering the Venu. It’s the first smartwatch I have used that feels compatible to the Apple Watch.
