Garmin Venu: AMOLED screen plus Always-On mode and battery life measured in days (hands-on)

The Garmin Venu is the company's new smartwatch for everyone, but instead of the frugal screens Garmin uses on most of its smartwatches, this one has a gorgeous AMOLED display similar to what you see on watches by Apple and Samsung Unlike those watches battery life on the Garmin Venu is much longer: the timepiece lasts up to 5 days and you can even set the screen to be always on The Garmin Venu also supports music as a standard now.

Garmin also introduces animated workouts to help you stay fit Overall, the features of this watch are more tailored to everyday folk rather than the runner/swimmer/triathlete that is targeted by the Garmin Forerunner and Garmin Fenix series Another cool feature here is Garmin Pay that allows you to pay even when you don't have your on oyu.

The Garmin Venu costs $400 in the United States and while the company has not announced a release date, the estimate is that it will be available in 5 to 8 weeks. . Source
