The Garmin Venu 3 has broken cover, ahead of an expected launch.
The Venu 3S has been spotted on a retailer by a Twitter user, indicating an imminent release. It will likely be joined by the standard Venu 3 – providing a full overhaul of the Garmin smartwatch range. You can see the Tweet below.
Garmin Venu 3 - No real learnings, but a first appearance away from the regulatory agencies. At least there is the part number.— Flo | FTT (en) (@fttest_en) August 2, 2023
Maybe it'll be launched around IFA 2023 - I didn't see Garmin on the exhibitor list though.

There aren't too many other details. The Venu 3S will be the smaller case size aimed at women, and we can see that this particular model comes in dust rose and soft golf colorway.
It’s not the first time these two have been spotted. We previously reported on the Venu 3 showing up at regulators.
The Garmin Venu is the company’s full AMOLED smartwatch, which plays closer to the Apple Watch, rather than the standard trifecta of Coros, Polar and Suunto.
The Garmin Venu 2 came out back in 2021, so it’s way overdue an upgrade.
Garmin did launch the Venu 2 Plus in 2022, which added some minor features, and was recently revealed to be hiding an ECG sensor – which is now live.
What the Venu 3 will bring to the table is so far unclear.
We’re certain it will pack ECG, and have a more health-focused feature set.
One interesting aspect will be whether Garmin opts for an LTE version. It’s put much of its focus in 2023 on AMOLED displays, but of course, the Venu 2 already packs one of these.
So we feel that health, and smarter features, would be a great place to bolster the Venu range.
And it seems we won’t have long to wait. With the Venu 3 already at retailers, it could be weeks, rather than months, until it gets unveiled.
