Garmin Venu

The Garmin Venu can't compete with more established smartwatches like the Apple Watch Series 5 or Fossil Gen 5, but it has a leg up in fitness tracking. In fact, it's one of the best (if not THE best) multisport watches you can buy right now. If you've been waiting for a Garmin device with an OLED display, you'll be very happy with the Venu. It takes the new Vivoactive 4 line and turns it up to 11.

What we like

Crisp OLED screen with an always-on display
Garmin Pay support is convenient
Music storage is standard
5-day battery life
Unique breathwork exercises
Accurate fitness and health tracking
Useful and accurate sleep tracking

What we don't like
