Garmin Venu 3 and Venu 3S with sleep tracking, wheelchair mode, and 14-day runtime

Introducing the new Garmin Venu 3 and Venu 3S smartwatches, these models usher in a plethora of features previously uncharted in the Garmin lineup. One standout addition is the Wheelchair mode, a groundbreaking inclusion catering to wheelchair users by delivering crucial data for both daily life and workout sessions.

Although the new Garmin Venu 3 might initially seem reminiscent of its predecessor, the Venu 2 Plus (approx. $450 / £330), it proudly showcases an array of innovative enhancements. Foremost among these is the automatic nap detection feature, seamlessly integrated into the sleep tracking capability. This not only refines sleep pattern analysis but also empowers the sleep coach to offer more targeted suggestions for optimizing sleep quality.

A revolutionary stride for Garmin, the Venu 3 steps up as the pioneer smartwatch to embrace the Wheelchair mode. This transformative mode substitutes the conventional pedometer with a robust boost counter, ingeniously replacing prompts to stand with cues to shift weight. Concurrently, Garmin introduces dedicated wheelchair workouts, further underscoring its commitment to inclusivity. For those with visual challenges, Garmin presents the option of selecting larger fonts, fostering accessibility.

Conversely, hardware refinements remain relatively restrained. The Venu 3 boasts a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with an always-on mode, offering a remarkable battery life of 14 days under standard use conditions or 26 hours while continuously harnessing the integrated GPS module. In a slight divergence, the more compact Garmin Venu 3S, featuring a 41-millimeter case diameter instead of the Venu 3’s 45-millimeters, hosts a 1.2-inch display and affords a ten-day runtime. These variations notwithstanding, the two models harmoniously align in terms of technical attributes.

At its core, the Venu 3 and Venu 3S embody 8 GB of memory catering to apps and music, coupled with a heart rate and SpO2 sensor, compass, altimeter, and NFC chip for seamless contactless payments via Garmin Pay. The polymer case adorned with a stainless steel bezel ensures waterproof protection up to 5 ATM. Equipped with built-in speakers and microphones, users can conveniently place calls directly from their wrist, provided their smartphone remains within Bluetooth range.
