Garmin Takes Aim At Apple With A Sleek Health-Focused GPS Smartwatch

Smartwatches are a dime-a-dozen these days. Specializing in everything from golf to diving, an increase in functionality often comes at the expense of a heftier price tag. However, Garmin’s latest fitness tracker watch is an accessible option that punches well above its weight class.

Building on the Venu lineup is the sleek and stylish Venu SQ. As the name suggests, this smartwatch eschews the rounded face of its older sibling in favor of a square design reminiscent of an Apple Watch. But don’t confuse the Venu SQ for some lower-priced look-a-like — with continuous HR monitoring, a blood oxygen sensor, as well as sleep, stress, respiration, and hydration tracking, you’ve got an affordable option packing a ton of health-forward features. And with six days of battery life, a built-in GPS, and 5ATM of water-resistance, the Venu SQ comes with everything you need in a day-to-day digital companion. Should you want onboard storage for your tunes, the Venu SQ Music Edition offers streaming service connectivity for easy phone-free listening. Available in a range of colors depending on the model, the Venu SQ is available today starting at $200.

Purchase: $200+
