Rated 5 out of 5 by from not so happy I purchased the device which is not cheap at all. It’s a pity that there isn’t an automatic sync for contacts like there used to be in an old device I had. Also, it is still not possible to initiate viewing messages and/or sending messages from the watch to the mobile device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Life about 7 days, not 10, dissapointing I bought this smartwatch because the advertised battery life is much longer than comparable devices; I have the 37mm so it's 10 days. It's brand new, but the battery lasts me about 7 days. This is quite dissapointing for me. I have a simple watch face without any movement, lowest display brightness, pulse ox off, wrist heart rate on auto but not broadcasting and off swim, move Iq on, orange shift on, display always on is off, sleep mode on at night. I have turned off everything that I don't use, but I don't want to turn off wrist heart rate and move iq because what's the point of having a fancy watch if I turn off these nice features. It's very misleading to say that the battery life is 10 days. Otherwise, I find that the UI is not super intuitive. When I look at the daily totals for caloris and steps, I want to see the exact numbers for each day, not just a graph. I feel like the market is missing a watch with less whistles and bells but has a longer battery life. I considered the Scanwatch but I really disliked that I couldn't connect it to siri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paring I had an Apple Watch since they came out and purchased garmin due to the battery life only to find out it Doesn’t pair easily with apple health app and doesn’t pair at all with peloton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Garmin watch and LOVE it. I have always had an Apple Watch...ever since the first one came out. I decided to try something else. I love this watch. It is less cluttered and easy to use. I run, bike, ect and I love the metrics on this watch. I works seamlessly with my iPhone as far as getting messages ect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Smartwatch! This is an amazing smartwatch! While in the surface it seems more expensive than some of its competitors, the fact that I don't have to pay a monthly fee for ordinary features that should be free, this is much cheaper long term than others and reviewers should consider that in their reviews (they don't). Sturdy and beautiful it works seamlessly with my Pixel 7 and the fact that it uses standard quick release watch bands makes the options endless! I can change out the look at will! Garmin outdid themselves with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The biggest disappointment! First and foremost no customer service, to physically talk too none! I received the watch, on the phone it went smoothly, the actual watch showed in Spanish while the phone English, for the life of me I was not able to sync the two, back to customer service NONE! Thus it went back in less than 24 hours. If this is how they run their business I am not in for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vivid Display! I've been a Garmin fan for a long time, and the Venu 3S is the best yet! The display is super-easy to read, with really vivid colors and so many options for watch faces with Connect IQ. The combination of touch screen and button controls make switching between screens a snap. Can't say enough good things about this watch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I’m a Garmin person & it was time to get a new watch. I chose this one because of the call feature but there is so much more to it! I love waking up to my morning report & seeing how I slept! It’s so comfortable to wear & very easy to use! I do really love the call option but there are so many things to love about this warch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely in love! I’ve been using the Venu 3s for several weeks straight now and LOVE it. This was an upgrade for me from the Vivoactive 3s which I also loved, but the Venu can do so much more. I love that I can now track my HIIT workouts (previously I just used the Strength mode since the vivoactive didn’t have HIIT mode), and I really enjoy the workout summaries right on my watch telling me how I performed and how this affects my day, and also how long it will take me to recover. I love the Sleep score, Body Battery and sleep coach. Although my husband’s vivoactive 4 also shows body battery, I think the Venu 3 gives way more detail. When I got sick, the body battery indicator really was accurate with how I felt! And the sleep stats were very helpful in understanding the rest I needed. The Venu also really does last so long - mine lasts a full 7 days without recharging (probably can last longer but I usually charge when it gets down to 30%) so I really love that! It can do a lot of “Apple Watch” like features but I personally don’t care about those things so I have those all turned off - it’s why I got a Garmin in the first place vs an Apple Watch. I love that they have the options there if you want it, but can turn off for people like me who solely care about the fitness/health tracking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Great I'm active 4-5 days a week and so far this has been great. What I like: The battery lasts for up to 9days with my level of activity Charging is quick It detects activities faster than my vivoactive 4 I love that I can now type my text responses Do not disturb works well My only dislike/concerns are: I question the accuracy of the sleep/wake times, my sleep scores are low even when I feel rested. I'd like to see the 7day estimate without the present day in the calculation. Wish I understood the body battery estimates

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Feature I Need & More This garmin finally has voice control to answer calls on the watch (and respond to texts). Not necessarily a deal breaker but I'm glad Garmin finally did it! The best part is the vibrant display that is super easy to read! I'm loving all the "advice" throughout the day. Get up and move, rest (lol), etc. It's also a very pretty watch compared to my old 945. All in all I am so glad I went for it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost 100% seamless transition from old Garmin The watch is everything they say it is. I love the body battery and detailed sleep stats. Also looking forward to tracking HRV levels. The only thing I had to set up again on the new watch is loading my custom running mix MP3s, and setting up the Data Screens for running to my prefs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The watch I’ve been waiting for! I am so happy with the changes the venu 3s has made over my previous beloved 2s. The sleep and activity changes are awesome and I like the dim screen feature when you are sleeping. I use gps at least an hour each day and I’m getting 4+ days between charges. Nap tracking is problematic. Adding a manual nap option and clearer instructions would be helpful. Buying this was a good decision for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with my choice I’m 81 and I love my Venu 3S. It’s easy to read and has the features I need. I went from a Lily to 3S and it is such a great upgrade. Love the features and the styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smart Watch I purchased my Garmin Venu 3S a couple of weeks ago. It is a very nice tool and has a lot of great features. There is a learning curve of how to get to all of the settings for all of the features. The only issue I have is with the band that comes with it. It is an 18mm very light and stretchy design and for this watch it should have at least a 22mm band and it would compliment the package for the purchase amount. Garmin, step it up please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome except for FTP?! I’ve had the Venu 3s for several weeks and I love almost EVERYTHING about it. It does everything I need it to do. However it doesn’t seem to know my FTP and I cannot find any way to change that number. So while I can use it with my powermeter and it displays the data it’s “analysis” is completely skewed which sort of makes training with power useless with this device. Kind of hard to believe actually…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Pay SUCKS! I upgraded my Venu 2 Plus to the Venu 3s. I always used Garmin Pay and loved it. Well, when I set up my new watch I had such a hard time setting up Garmin Pay and after hours on the phone with customer service with Capital One (same cards I have on my Venu 2 Plus) I find out that Garmin no longer accepts Capital One as of March 2023. Capital One is a HUGE company! If I can't use my credit cards on my watch to pay, what good is spending $450 for it? Really Garmin? Back it goes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst watch I have ever encountered This watch does NOTHING that was advertised. You cannot answer calls, cannot see text messages, does not interface with most apps including its own. You cannot edit watch faces that are supposedly editable. It’s a complete fail and they should not be selling watches at all if this is their product. Returning this NOW!!!!
