    I’ll come right out the gate and say that if you are looking for an excellent fitness tracker and will motivate you to actually exercise this is the ticket.I’ve owned products from Fitbit and an Apple Watch, but the Venu has by far been my favorite. Apple Watch certainly had the best smart features, but to be honest after having the thing for 3 years I didn’t bother with like 95% of them. Only think I care about is notifications, and the Garmin does just fine with that. What I really cared about was the fitness tracking, and Garmin is on a whole different level. Sure Fitbit is probably more “consumer” friendly and Apple allows for everything to be in one ecosystem, but if you are more into seeing metric like sweat loss, bar charts that can track your heart rate for the entire exercise, and GPS built right into the watch you have to go with the Garmin. The ability to have workouts built in outside of just stuff like walking, running, biking, the basics really, is top notch. Will I ever use ones like the paddle boarding and the cross country skiing? Probably not, but it’s there for people who will. The app is also really great, and motivating. Both my parents also use Garmin products, so it’s really fun to compete with them on who can be the best. Being able to connect with social media and compete with all my friends is also really fun as well. The app is, for the most part, well laid out. Might take some time to find were some stuff is, but the internet is your best friend and Garmin’s website has lots of info on it to answer your questions. Another plus is the battery life. My Fitbit products were decent with maybe 2-4 days depending on what I did. Apple Watch was terrible, usually a day at most and towards the end of its life I sometimes had to charge it twice in a day. The Venu? Well when Garmin says 5-7 days they mean it. That’s dependent out course. Workouts that use GPS take more power, and using the built in music paying doubles that. Still I’d say I use it at an average level, and before the first charge I got 5 days, and probably could’ve got 6. That ‘s impressive on a device that has an AMOLED screen, and a very good one at that.Cons? Well the 3rd party watch face support is pretty abysmal. Most of them require a 3rd party payment outside of the app, which is a no-no in my book. I found that most of the free ones I downloaded, which nice, drained the battery a lot faster and some of them actually messed the with raise to wake feature. I’d recommend just making one using your own photos or use the stock ones from Garmin. The app store is also a completely separate app, also a bummer, and quite frankly I don’t see myself ever adding any apps outside of Spotify anyway. I hope maybe Garmin eventually just adds into into the primary ConnectApp.Really, though, I think there are very few negatives about the device, actually most are just Garmin’s software. The device itself is very good, worth the money, and I would recommend to anyone who wants a good competitive product to what Apple and Fitbit offer that wants superior fitness tracking abilities.

    Photos do not do the quality of this watch justice.I have been a die hard Garmin person for about 6 years now. My forerunner 230 was a fantastic watch, still works great to this day but that I’d treat myself to a little upgrade.I went back and forth between the Venu and Vivoactive 4 because they are literally THE EXACT SAME WATCH with the only exception being the screen quality.GO. WITH. THE. VENU.The screen is incredible! Bright, detailed, readable, sharp on the wrist, just everything you could want!Battery life holds true, a good few days taking into account using GPS and activity tracking features regularly.Awesome watch and definitely an upgrade!!!

    I have worn the Apple Watch for the last six years. And I finally made the switch to Garmin, my husband loves his Garmin and talked me into trying it. I waited until Prime day when this one was on sale & I am really enjoying this watch. I love that it is lighter and thinner than my Apple Watch. And the battery life is not even comparable. I would have to charge my Apple Watch every night and I can go almost a week with this Garmin. The sleep tracking is absolutely incredible, it can measure your blood oxygen levels & I had always been told by my doc that they thought I might have sleep apnea but I never went to get tested. With this watch I can actually see how long my oxygen levels would drop throughout the night. (This would also be handy if you were recovering from covid and wanted to track your blood oxygen). The gps fitness tracking is awesome and sync’s up great to my Strava app that I love. The new watch is a good middle of the road Garmin. It is not as expensive as the Phoenix line. But has a lot of the same features, like the body battery that some of the garmins don’t have. It’s been a great way to get introduced to garmin watches.

    I bought this because I thought I needed an upgrade from my garmin forerunner 230. This version is fashionable and looks smaller on my wrist, which is one thing I was hoping for. Another thing I was VERY interested in was the music feature. I’ve used the music feature for races and it worked flawlessly. I didn’t have my phone with me on those runs and the downloaded music on my watch was perfect! The battery life so far is great, with a full charge before a 5k – using GPS and the music feature – my watch got down to 90% battery life. I’m very satisfied with that! I love this watch and I am so glad I bought it. It’s the perfect combination of smart watch and GPS running watch!

    Ok I had a Fitbit for 3 years first one died just past it’s 1 year warranty. So me and the hubs decide that it’s time to upgrade our watches. He was looking for something that has GPS, pulse reader, sleep tracker etc. SO I look up best smart watches and Garmin is on the list as number 3. I was like what Garmin makes watches I thought they only made GPS for your car. After 2 days of reading up on it I had to get it. I DO NOT regret my purchase. I love this watch it is not big a bulky like I thought it would be. The sleep tracker is MUCH more accurate than my Fitbit was. I love the oxygen monitor when I sleep. It does give you the option to have it oxygen sensor on all the time I did this when I first got it and my battery only lasted 2 days. I turned it off to only track when I sleep and my battery lasts for 6 days. I love the quick exercises you can choose and the GPS on it. The heart rate is accurate. I looked into a Apple watch cause it is supposed to be the best tracker but SCREW APPLE. This is the next best thing. I can’t recommend this watch enough.

    I got this to monitor heart rate, breathing, and pulse ox and it did not disappoint. At first I thought the sensors were broken because my vitals were all over the place. I’d be sitting on the couch and my heart rate would jump from 60 to 110 with me not moving a muscle. The pulse ox showed low 80s, the body battery was never above 70 even with a full 10 hours of sleep. My stress number was always high. I was ready to return it because surely it was broken, right? WRONG! It was right on the money. Unbeknownst to me, my body was failing! I was hospitalized a few weeks after purchasing this and wore it my entire stay in the hospital. I had the opportunity to compare vitals every three hours when the nurses recorded them. It was on par with the hospital machines’ readings! This watch is amazing!!! Aside from the damn near precise vital readings, this watch has it all. I’ve been tracking my vitals and exercise since I was discharged. It’s really nice to see progress and based on vitals, I know when I need to take a break. I use it a lot for cycling and love how it tracks the distance and route. It’s nice to see slow spots on my ride so I can avoid them next time. I love the Garmin pay, but at some stores it’s a hit or miss. It’s probably an issue with the store verifone thingy, but just know you should have a backup payment with you. Even on my small, child sized wrist, it’s not overwhelming and looks great. I love everything about this watch and can’t sing its praises enough. You need this watch!!

    I absolutely love this watch! It has amazing features for fitness tracking and just the right amount of phone notifications. I could have easily gone with the Apple watch but really wanted something more when it comes to health and fitness. This watch was it. The battery is far better than the one day battery on the Apple watch and 1.5 day battery on the Galaxy watch. The amoled screen is beautiful but I still prefer longer battery life over the pretty display. I have a photo of the size difference of the Vivoactive 4s and the Venu. I would have preferred the Vivoactive 4s over the Venu but the appearance of the rosegold/lightsand offered in the Venu sold me. This watch does not disappoint.

    I haven’t had a new Garmin in many years – my last was a Forerunner 205. I had a Fitbit Ionic, then a Fossil Gen 4, then the Garmin Vivoactive 4s. I loved everything about the VA4s except the display – it felt like such a downgrade from my previous two watches. The Venu solved that problem!What I use this watch for:Fitness – tracking outdoor runs/walks, day hikes, and indoor workouts like using the ellipticalSmartwatch – notifications of texts and calls, 2FA logins, Garmin Pay, and having fun with the cool watch facesGeneral health – the stats of things like stress, heart rate, body battery are fun, but I consider them to be kind of anecdotal; that’s a lot to ask from a wrist-based deviceThis watch doesn’t feel rugged to me, like a Fenix would, but it certainly is capable of tracking the types of workouts I do and can handle my level of “adventure”. I spend most of my week indoors at a job, and so I really appreciate that colorful display to look at. The display is also plenty readable out in sunlight, too, so it isn’t like it is a trade-off to have it look good indoors, it looks good outside as well.Battery life for me has been really good; after the first few days of updates and me messing around with the settings quite a bit, it has settled down to using about 12-15% per day, which includes tracking either a 30-60 minute GPS activity or a non-gps activity.All the functions work as I’d expect; vibrates when it should, responds to wrist gestures when it should (and I like the fact that it is slightly delayed, it avoids false activations IMO), AOD looks nice if you have watch faces that support it. I have not tried the music function because I always have my phone with me (in case of emergencies) and just listen from that.I’d buy this watch again without hesitation and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice looking watch that is a capable smartwatch as well as a decent fitness watch.

    UPDATED REVIEW (after 1 month of use):I received the watch on 12/16/19. As of today, 2/5/20, I still love this watch. It’s exactly what I was hoping for; no disappointment or regrets.Great Battery Life:— Depending on how you use the watch, you can get a week’s worth of use out of it before charging.— I used to wear the watch every night to capture sleep data, but I have a pretty consistent pattern of sleep. So after a couple weeks, I actually started turning the watch off at night while I’m sleeping to conserve battery life.— I only use the heart rate monitor right before, during, and right after workouts. Otherwise, I keep it off.— If you play music straight from your watch, it drains the battery fairly quickly. As an example, during a 45 min run outside, I had GPS on, heart rate on, and I was playing music straight from the watch. Within that 45 min span, my battery dropped by 12%. If I just use GPS and heart rate, the battery might only drop by about 3% during that same 45 min span. So, if I run inside on a treadmill, I’ll just play music from my phone via bluetooth. If I run outside, I’ll leave my phone at home and will use the music I downloaded to the watch.— You can decide which notifications you want to appear. I only turned on the notifications that I deem important (i.e. Text Messages, phone calls) and kept the rest turned off. I’m using this watch to track my fitness, not to keep updated about Facebook or anything of that nature.— Keep in mind that everyone’s experience will be different. I can regulary get 5 – 7 days of battery life, but someone else may only get 1 or 2 days. It’s all about how you use the watch.Fitness Tracking/Virtual Coach/Garmin Dashboard:— The Garmin Dashboard (app) is pretty sleek and it’s easy to see your workout data and steps.— I don’t know any other Garmin users, but the Garmin Dashboard has a weekly step challenge that puts you in a group with other Garmin users based on your level of activity. I started at the 30k steps per week challenge group and am now in the 70k steps per week challenge group. It’s nice having a little friendly competition with people I don’t know.— I just got started back into running again. I’m using the virtual coach to get myself ready for a 5k in March. Out of all the other virtual coaches I’ve tried to use, this has been the best experience. After I entered some personal data, I got to pick between 3 different coaches. Each coach had a bio and explained their approach to the training plan. The coach I selected has me running 3 days per week. Each workout is different. I’ve done Run/Walk, Speed Repeats, Hill Repeats, the Magic Mile, Drill Workouts, etc. After 7 weeks of a 13 week training plan, my average pace has dropped dramatically and I am on pace to reach my goal of running a 5k in 28 mins or less. It’s been so easy to follow and instructions are provided for each type of workout (job aids and/or videos).— I like that you can only start and stop your activity by pushing the buttons on the side of the watch even though it has a touchscreen. This just means that if I accidentally bump the watch face while running, it won’t stop my run. A previous watch I owned from a different company would only allow you to start/stop activities from the watch face. It was a horrible experience. I’m glad Garmin did not adopt that approach.— The GPS is accurate from what I’ve seen.— I’m sure the step count isn’t perfect, but it gives you a good idea of how active you were for the day.— You can sync your activity with Strava and Nike Plus. After my run is over, as long as I’m near my phone, the activity will sync automatically.Notifications:— The notifications appear immediately as expected and they are easy to dismiss or remove.— If I have my bluetooth turned on, I can answer the phone from my watch.Music:— I have an Amazon Music account, and Amazon syncs up with the Gamin Venue. Any song that I download to my playlist on Amazon will sync over to the watch. It’s a seamless process.— You cannot stream music from apps like Pandora. But, if you have mp3 files of your music, you can download those to your watch. I have an iTunes account. I pulled the mp3 files from some of the songs I purchased and downloaded them to my watch. Easy process.CONS:— The one piece of negative feedback that I have is that you CANNOT manually pause your workout. There is an AutoPause feature, but it doesn’t work that great. I would rather be able to pause on my own, but there’s no option for it. The top right button on the watch starts and stops your activity. The bottom right button is your Lap button. I’m hoping Garmin does a firmware update in the future that enables manual pausing during activities.— This used to be a con, but was fixed by Garmin in January 2020. There was an issue with the heart rate monitor. If you turned it off, it wouldn’t actually go off. It kept running. Instead, you had to restart the watch every time you wanted to turn off the heart rate monitor. But, as mentioned before, Garmin fixed this in January 2020. I can now turn off the heart rate monitor without restarting the watch.I am glad I decided to purchase the Garmin Venue. It looks good on my wrist, it has solid performance, and it doesn’t lag like other watches I’ve seen. I’m very happy with the purchase._____________________________________________________________________________________INITIAL REVIEW:There’s a lot to like about the Garmin Venue. I received the watch on a Monday. It had roughly 65% battery on it out of the box. I didn’t have to charge it until that Friday. And it still had 20% battery when I decided to charge it. I ran 2 days on the treadmill (40 mins on each run) using the run tracker. I used the HR monitor every night while sleeping and sporadically during the day. Yet, the battery didn’t lose much power. The only thing I found that really drains the battery is playing music from the watch. I’m really loving the battery life!The Venue resembles a normal watch for the most part. This is something I was looking for in a smartwatch. I didn’t want something “boxy”. It’s lightweight and looks normal on my wrist. It’s not bulky, nor is it tiny.The tracking info seems to work as intended. I don’t need it to be exact; it just needs to give me a rough idea of how I’m doing each day. Plus, it syncs easily with Strava and/or Nike Plus.Bluetooth is easy to connect. Notifications from my phone pop up immediately. I have no complaints at all about this smartwatch.If I remember, I’ll stop back after a month or two of use to give an updated review.

    This is my first garmin.I have previously owned fitbits and a samsung gear fit2.I dont usually post reviews but I researched alot to decide on buying this watch so figured I read reviews so much and it helped me so why not do it to help someone eles possibly.I have only had the watch on for the last few days but so far I’m loving it!I’ve used it during multiple workouts including running outside with the GPS and it was accurate!I love how it fits, it’s very light to me. Feels good on my wrist.It also looks beautiful!!Which was a big thing for me in purchasing my next fitness watch.My last one (the fitnit ionic) was definitely not very pretty, so I wanted one I would feel good about wearing 24/7.It also has the garmin coach feature.Which Is great because I am going to be doing my first 1/2 marathon and I know it is going to be great at helping me conquer it!The battery life has been great! That was another big deciding factor for me.I was looking for a watch that I knew I could put it on gps and go running/walking/hiking for a day and not worry about the battery draining too quickly to make it to the end of my workout.I wont have to worry about that with this.(But I also have not listened to music, so maybe with gps and music the battery would drain much faster, I have not tested that yet)I’m hoping it still stays a 5 star for me.I will come back in another couple weeks and update my review.
