The Garmin Venu 3 is out and it appears to have a big focus on sleep features. Sleep tracking has become a very popular feature set for smartwatches and sport watches in recent years. And Garmin seems to be following this trend with its latest watch. A big feature with this device is sleep coaching. The new Sleep Coach feature will allow users to work towards a better night’s rest.
The feature will analyze HRV data along with your recorded sleep stages and use that to begin coaching you on how to sleep better. It can then add that information into your Morning Report. The Sleep coach isn’t the only new sleep feature though.
You can manually track your sleep with the Garmin Venu 3
The Sleep Coach is just the beginning. With the Garmin Venu 3 you can also now manually track your sleep. Just like you can do with other activities such as running, walking, cycling and more. With manual sleep tracking, you can start the process whenever you decide it’s time to get a little rest. Making this a really useful tool for those that take scheduled naps and want that data recorded. But you can also setup auto nap detection to automatically track long naps if you don’t want to deal with setting up the tracking manually. Garmin says the auto detection can also suggest how long naps should be. So you know how long to doze off the next time.
In addition to manual sleep tracking the smartwatch also has a new Wheelchair Mode. With this enabled, users can track how many times a day their push the chair around. This mode can also tell users when they shift their weight in the chair and it offers workout and sport tracking specific to wheelchairs.
The new Venu 3 and Venu 3S version both feature an AMOLED touchscreen and boast a battery life of up to 14 days in smartwatch mode. The Venu 3 and Venu 3S are available from August 30 and retail for $449.99. If you’re interested in picking up the watch you can find it at the link below.
