    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!

    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.

    I’ve been using fitness trackers for several years now, starting with the Fitbit Flex, then the Microsoft Band, Microsoft Band 2, Fitbit Ionic, and now the Garmin Venu. I always gravitate more towards fitness-focused devices as opposed to app-focused “smartwatches” like the Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy Watch, because I’ve never really seen the appeal of reading news or navigating a map using a tiny screen on my wrist. While I like the option of installing apps and add-ons, it’s more important to me that the device tracks my sleep, heart rate, steps and workouts, and that it does all of those things well. With that in mind, I’m quite happy with my Venu after a couple weeks of owning it, but there are a few caveats.

    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!!

    Beautiful watch; however the wrist heart rate is way off which makes several of the other stats irrelevant. This is very disappointing for a very expensive watch.

    Pros: The watches AMOLED display is beautiful, clear, bright, and the colours pop (this won me over when deciding between the Venu and the comparable Vivoactive 4 which has a dull transflective display. I have No Regreats at all), its comfortable and light weight to wear I often forget its even on. The Venu looks great on my wrist this Sandstone+Rose Gold combination goes well with everything and looks very classy in my opinion. I have sensitive skin and have had no irritations to this watch or band. The display is easy to read indoors and outdoors in sunlight. The activity tracking is accurate. I like that I can input the amount of water I drink directly on on the Venu. The menstral tracking widget is helpful for tracking your cycle. The sleep tracking is very nice its almost as good as Fitbits. The Venu includes Garmin coach for Free an adaptive running training plan and it’s awesome. No syncing issues. (I had a Fitbit Versa before this and it always had syncing issues). Also, it’s a very user friendly smartwatch.

    Pesquisei bastante antes de comprar e foi o modelo que melhor atendeu ao conceito de smartwatch com funcionalidades focadas em esportes, como é de tradição da Garmin.
    A qualidade da tela é um nivel acima dosdemais relogios da Garmin (linha Forerunner), apesar de achar que as funcionalidades do relógio não fazem uso de todo o potencial.

    Um dos pontos mais relevantes foi a questão da bateria, que diferente de smartswatch da Apple e Samsung, dura varios dias. Fiz duas cargas completas: Na primeira vez fiz 3x treinos de 40min em 3 dias (usando GPS) e a bateria chegou em 40%. Na segunda carga completa foram mais 3 dias, usei para 2x 30min e 1x 2h com GPS, bateria em 43%. Obs: Não uso para monitorar sono.

    Não é possivel atender a chamadas do telefone, somente visualização de notificações quando conectado por bluetooth ao celular. Para quem é usuario premium de apps de musica (Spotify e Deezer) é possivel fazer o download das musicas no relógio, sem necessidade de estar junto do celular, o que facilitar na hora da pratica de exercícios.

    Uma desvantagem é a loja de apps que basicamente só tem opções de customização de tela.

    I looked at all the major manufacturers before making this decision, including Apple, Withings, Fitbit, Samsung, and also looked at the extremely broad range of offerings from Garmin. Even though I’ve had a Fitbit for the past 7 years, I settled on this watch based on the following:
    * Extremely broad range of functions that are customizable (in terms of what is displayed on the watch), including even the ability to customize the watch face – both analog and digital.
    * Relatively low price
    * Excellent website which links to the watch and allows a fuller mobile and PC view, including tracking over time
    * The only Garmin watch with the newest amoled display (similar to the look of Apple watch display), with the ability to have the display always on, and blackout periods when you don’t want it to activate unless you press a button (i.e., in bed when you are sleeping).
    * GPS which does not depend on a phone – it links to satellites independently
    * In contrast to Apple and most other brands, the ability to view blood oxygen saturation, thereby showing stats such as VO2 max and spot O2 readings
    * Measures heart rate very accurately without any other devices required.
    * Can be configured to monitor body energy level, suggest breaks, display respiration rate, steps, stairs, etc.
    * I have an average-sized wrist, and at about 43 mm it is just the right size without feeling as though the watch was overpowering my arm.
    * The watch is extremely light – most of the time I hardly notice that I’m wearing it. I’ve also ordered a 3rd party titanium band with quick-release pins (it takes a 20mm size), for those times when I want a dress look. The watch looks really classy, especially with the titanium band. The band that comes with the watch is extremely comfortable, light, and does not irritate my skin.
    * The watch is designed to be used for swimming
    * Depending on what you activate (i.e., I have VO2 readings on all the time), the watch battery can last 3-5 days without a charge.
    * I use the watch to monitor my sleep patterns, and because I also have it set to monitor blood oxygen saturation, I can tell from the chart next day if I need to be worried about anything (i.e., dropping below 90%).
    * There are hundreds of specific fitness routines and training routines you can download and load into the watch from Garmin.
    * The watch can link to Spotify and Amazon music using Bluetooth.

    I’m really happy with this purchase.

    O relógio é muito bom, com ótimas funcionalidades e qualidade Garmin que eu amo!

    A bateria me surpreendeu. Tiro do pulso somente para tomar banho e sem usar GPS, escutando música durou 1 semana. Usando GPS e escutando música durou cerca de 5 dias.

    O grande problema pra mim é o controle de volume dos fones. Simplesmente não funciona e só depois de comprar que descobri ser um problema antigo que a Garmin simplesmente não resolve.
    Os controles de volume funcionam para alguns poucos fones, mas não pra maioria. Então se música é seu forte, já saiba que tem o risco de ter que comprar outro fone bluetooth.
    O padrão é altíssimo, impossível de usar.

    Como consegui escutar música: conectei o fone no celular, baixei o volume bastante e ai imediatamente conectei no Garmin. Faço isso TODA vez que quero usar, mas assim que desligo os fones, o Garmin volta o volume para muito alto, então se não tiver o celular por perto, não consigo mais escutar.

    Estava entre Samsung, Amazfit e Ticwatch. Deixei de comprar Samsung por causa da bateria que dizem durar só 1 dia, o Amazfit não tinha as funções que eu queria e o Ticwatch não achei tela menor, parece ser feito só para homens, mas ele parece ser perfeito.
    Optei então pelo Garmin e não me arrependo! Bateria tem durado 3 dias, usando normalmente tudo que ele oferece. É lindo e preciso. Armazena minhas músicas pelo Spotify e posso sair pra me exercitar sem o celular. Salva o percurso e compartilha com o Strava. Dá pra personalizar praticamente tudo.
