It seems that only yesterday that Garmin brought the Fenix 6 series smart watches into the Philippines. This time around, the brand is bringing three new smart wearables in to the local market: the Venu, VivoMove 3, and VivoActive 4.
The Venu comes with a 1.2-inch screen encased in either a black and gold, light sand with rose gold, granite blue with silver, or black with slate chassis. Garmin says that the device can reach up to five days in smart watch mode and up to six hours in GPS + music mode.
Designed for workouts either at home or outside, the Venu has more than 40 on-device animated workouts for strength training, cardio, yoga, and pilates. Workouts can also be customized depending on your preference.
Like the Venu, the VIvoActive 4 will come with 40 workouts as well as customizable ones for your preference. Both devices are compatible with the Garmin Coach app that comes with free training plans adapted to a runner’s goals and performance.
The device has a 45mm watch face and comes with up to eight days of battery life in smart watch mode. Meanwhile, a rating of six hours of usage is promised in GPS + music mode.
Available in 44mm sizes, the VivoMove 3 is a smart watch for those who like the more classical look of a contemporary watch. While its stainless-steel bezel might pass off a regular watch, the device is still customizable to a degree.
With a flick of the wrist, the hands of the VivoMove 3 will dynamically move out of the way to reveal a hidden smart screen that displays health and fitness tracking data as well as notifications from your smartphone.
All three smart wearables will come with 24/7 health monitoring schedules, new respiration tracking, abnormal heartrate alerts, stress tracking with relax reminders, hydration tracking, and breathwork. For the girls in the crowd, they can even track your menstrual cycle in just a few questions.
