Looking for a smartwatch that is functional and stylish? You’re definitely not asking for too much because Garmin’s sleek watches fit the bill. Their latest addition, the Venu, is designed for the active millennial who is constantly on-the-go.

Here are four reasons why you’d want to own this.

1. It’s stylish


Unlike previous Garmin smartwatches and most of their counterparts, the Garmin Venu is stylish enough to be worn as a fashion accessory. It comes in four different colours for you to choose from—black with gold, light sand with rose gold, granite blue with silver, and black with slate—with the bezel coming in an elegant metal finish.

But the display itself is the standout feature: it’s got a bold and vibrant display with full touchscreen capabilities.

2. It’s your very own personal trainer 

Workouts are made more fun with the Venu. It contains over 40 on-device animated workouts ranging from strength training to cardio, yoga and Pilates, all of which are easy to follow. You can even get directions on nailing the form and technique straight from your wrist without having to browse the internet for reference photos.


Can’t find what you want among the 40 pre-installed workouts? Fret not, there are a lot more for you to choose from on the Garmin Connect app, so you can no longer make the excuse of not knowing what to do the next time you are at the gym.

For those who prefer something more personalised, Garmin has got you covered with the option of customisable workouts. With expert coaching and a dynamic training plan that adapts to your goals and performance, the Garmin Coach is your personal trainer that can guide you to your next running goal. Choose from the many plans available based on your goal, and receive tips and videos from your coach to improve your performance.

The smartwatch also comes with GPS and a wristband heart rate monitor.

It promotes your overall well-being

The smartwatches boasts a range of 24/7 health monitoring features such as sleep tracking with Pulse Ox, new respiration tracking, abnormal heart rate alerts, menstrual cycling tracking, stress and hydration tracking and more.


It also boasts a whole host of relaxation features, such as new structured breathwork activities, which are designed to promote focus and relaxation for whenever you need to catch a breather from daily tasks.

Its innovative Body Battery energy monitoring lets you check in on your energy levels at any time of the day, which can be a helpful tool in scheduling your workouts, rest times and sleep. Venu also aids in winding down with advanced sleep monitoring that tracks the quality of your sleep.

It’s great for all-day connection and convenience 

Apart from its numerous health features, the smartwatch also offers a whole roster of features for all-round convenience.


You can listen to music without your phone, make payment with a flick of your wrist, and stay connected with smart notifications for incoming calls, social media updates, calendar reminders and more. Android users can even reply to text messages directly on the device.

Venu has a battery life of up to five days in smartwatch mode, and up to six hours in GPS + music mode.

Venu is available at all authorised retailers for $589. For more information, please visit https://www.garmin.com.sg/minisite/vivo/venu/.
