How Do You Like Your Venu?

Just got a Venu yesterday and wondering how others like theirs. I see some negative posts here but this is after all a product forum and people only seem to post mainly when they are having issues.

So far I am liking this device. Did a mile and a half walk with a few small run intervals just to see how the OHR and GPS worked. Seems to be working fine compared to other devices I have owned.

Here is a link to the activity... https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4441913486

I had a fenix 6X sapphire, but I am not that advanced and all those advanced features are overwhelming to me. I tried the Apple watch series 5 which was pretty good but I hated having to charge it daily and no native sleep tracking. I then tried the Fitbit Versa 2 but the OHR seemed questionable and used my phones GPS and was not that accurate. But it did have a very nice screen.

I was looking for something that had a nice screen, built in GPS, accurate OHR, and good battery life. Also with enough fitness features without being overwhelming., and the Venu seems to fit that bill for me. I will know more once I test it more. I plan on doing some intervals today over about a 4 mile course at the park across the street, so I will see how that goes.

  • I did some intervals today and it worked good IMO.

    Here is the workout... https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4444794022

    GPS distance looks good... GPS track looks good... heart rate looks good... pace looks good... and everything else looks fine.

    I have done this workout many many times using many devices and chest strap heart rate monitors, and it is on par with what I expect.

    Going on 2 days and still have 79% battery left too. I don't use notifications, music, or anything on the watch because I always have my phone with me, so...

    Pretty impressed so far.
