Garmin plays up active lifestyle range with latest smartwatch additions – Venu, vívomove 3 and vívoactive 4 Smart wearables decked out with enhanced health and wellness monitoring features and battery lives set to impress
Garmin Philippines today introduced three new smartwatches that anyone passionate about pursuing an active lifestyle would be delighted about. Garmin’s latest additions are designed to be a part of the user’s everyday life.
Garmin’s first smartwatch, the VenuTM, is equipped with a vibrant AMOLED screen. The second offering is the vívomove 3 – the latest collection of hybrid smartwatches. The third one is the vívoactive 4 GPS smartwatches – decked out with the broadest available range of 24/7 health monitoring features in the market.
“We’re thrilled to announce Venu, Garmin’s first smartwatch with an AMOLED display, which will breathe life and color into animated workouts on live watch faces,” said Engelhard (Al) Sundoro, Managing Director, South Asia, and India. “The newest additions to Garmin’s active lifestyle range of smartwatches are designed to be essential tools for customers who want to track and improve their overall well-being and want the connected and health features of a smartwatch with a more fashion-forward look better suited for the office or dressing up.”
Bringing fitness to life with animated and customized workouts
Working out at home with the Venu and vívoactive 4 is so much more fun with over 40 on-device animated workouts for strength training, cardio, yoga, and Pilates. These easy-to-follow workouts demonstrate proper form and technique right on the user’s wrist. The Venu and vívoactive 4’s robust suite of workout options includes pre-loaded workouts on the watch, preset workouts available to download from Garmin ConnectTM, and “create your own” customizable workouts.
Whether training for a 5K or something longer, the smartwatches are compatible with Garmin Coach, free training plans adapted to a runner’s goals and performance, complete with a virtual personal trainer for added motivation.
Stay connected, stay in style with the vívomove 3
Designed with style in mind, Garmin’s new hybrid smartwatch lineup – vívomove 3 – it has the appearance of a traditional timepiece, with real ticking hands and elegant dial details. With a flick of the wrist, the hands dynamically move out of the way to reveal a hidden smart screen with health and fitness tracking data, and smart notifications for text messages, social media updates, calendar reminders and more.
All-rounded everyday health and wellness monitoring
With GPS, ElevateTM wrist-based heart rate2, and over 20 built-in indoor and outdoor sports apps including Pilates, yoga, running, pool swimming, golf and more, Venu, vívomove 3 and vívoactive 4 are packed with features to keep up with a varied and active lifestyle. Need to take a breather or boost mindfulness? The Venu and vívoactive 4 offer new structured breathwork activities designed to promote focus and relaxation.
The latest smartwatches boast the broadest range of 24/7 health monitoring features available in the market, including advanced sleep with Pulse Ox1, new respiration tracking, abnormal heart rate alerts, menstrual cycle tracking, stress tracking with relax reminders, new hydration tracking, new breathwork activities and more. Innovative Body BatteryTM energy monitoring lets users check energy levels at any given moment, which can help with scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep. Using a combination of data gathered from stress, heart rate variability (HRV), sleep and activity, a higher Body Battery indicates the time is optimal to be active whereas a lower number suggests rest is in order.
When it’s time to wind down, advanced sleep monitoring estimates light, deep and REM stages of sleep. New respiration tracking measures the number of breaths per minute, and Pulse Ox gauges blood oxygen saturation levels. Together, this data can illustrate the sleep quality. Upon awakening, users can review their sleep stats in Garmin Connect to see whether they are getting the quality sleep they need to feel rested and recharged the next day.

The newest additions provide all-day connection and convenience with a host of smart features including:
• Notifications: Receive smart notifications3 for incoming calls, text messages, social media updates, calendar reminders and more. Android users can reply to text messages from the device.
• Music: Download songs or playlists4, including those from third-party music services like Spotify right to the Venu and vívoactive 4.
