Garmin rolls out Venu 3 GPS smartwatches in PH

GPS gadgets maker Garmin has announced the local launch of Venu 3 and Venu 3S GPS smartwatches.

These wearables are designed to empower users on their health and fitness journeys, offering a host of features to help individuals achieve their wellness goals, the company said.

The Venu 3 series redefines what a smartwatch can do by providing comprehensive fitness insights, stunning AMOLED touchscreen displays, and remarkable battery life.

The series is engineered to give users a more complete understanding of their health and fitness, making it the ideal companion for active lifestyles. It also includes new features for wheelchair users — letting them track pushes, follow wheelchair-specific workouts, and more.

Available in two sizes and comfortable enough to wear all day and night, Venu 3 series gets up to 14 days of battery life in smartwatch mode. And because users don’t have to charge their watch every night, they can monitor health metrics 24/7 and receive a more holistic view of their stress, Body Battery and sleep with new personalized sleep coaching and nap detection.

“At Garmin, we are dedicated to enhancing the lives of our users through innovative technology. No matter what your health and fitness journey looks like, Venu 3 is ready to support you every step of the way. The Venu 3 series is a testament to our commitment to inclusivity, connectivity, and user experience. We believe these smartwatches will revolutionize the way people approach their health and fitness journeys,” Scoppen Lin, assistant GM, Garmin Asia, said.

Loaded with extensive health and wellness stats, Venu 3 series is ready to help keep users going strong. And with days of battery life, users don’t have to worry about charging their watch every night, meaning they can have access to certain health features 24/7.

Day or night, Venu 3 series can track heart rate2, respiration, Pulse Ox, stress and Body Battery energy levels. While sleeping, Venu 3 series will monitor heart rate variability to provide users with a deeper understanding of their overall health and will also track those “zzz’s” while traveling and offer personalized tips to help reduce jet lag.

With more than 30 built-in sports apps, users can track the ways they move — from walking and running to cycling, pool swimming, activities for wheelchair users and more. Venu 3 series even lets users follow preloaded animated workouts for strength, HIIT, Pilates and yoga right from the watch.

Plus, users can create their own step-by-step workouts from more than 1,600 exercises in the Garmin Connect app and send them directly to the watch. For those looking to train for a 5K or something a bit longer, free Garmin Coach adaptive training plans can help users prepare.

In addition to keeping tabs on daily steps, calories burned and floors climbed, Venu 3 series can track moderate and vigorous intensity minutes, VO2 max during a run or bike ride and cycling power in watts (when paired with a compatible power meter or indoor bike).

In addition to making and taking calls directly from the watch, Venu 3 series lets users receive emails, texts and alerts when paired with their compatible smartphone. Safety and tracking features help provide peace of mind by sending a message with the user’s live location to chosen emergency contacts if they feel unsafe or if an incident is detected.

While out and about, Garmin Pay contactless payments let users breeze through certain checkout lines or transit systems. Users can also download songs and playlists from Spotify, Amazon Music and Deezer (subscription required) for phone-free listening.

The Venu 3 and Venu 3S GPS smartwatches are now available for purchase and have a suggested retail price starting at ₱28,250.
