Different purpose. Garmin is arguably a way better fitness tracker than an apple watch that wouldn't last a day.ericw wrote: ↑ I had one as a gift and sold it after playing with for a few weeks. Compared to my Apple watch 5 (or my old 3), it is slow and the watch software and phone app are less polished. However, it is a very good sports watch with little distractions. If you need a good activity tracker, this is not a bad choice at this price with the pts bonus.

Actually, in terms of battery life, my non-GPS apple watch 5 lasts about 2 days in default settings and the Venu lasted similar 2-2.5 days (with Always on Display and continuous monitoring).

Yeah, but you are now comparing a non AOD and non GPS apple watch just to match up against a full featured Garmin for the same battery life.

I don’t have this but I did switch over to garmin from Fitbit ecosystem, and Android watches, to Garmin Vivoactive and it’s amazing for everything it does

I have had the vivoactive 3, 4 and venu. The battery life on the Venu is very good. I use gps twice a day and I am getting 5 days of battery life. That is pretty darn good for OLED screen smartwatch. The Vivoactive 4 does give you slightly better battery life but the Venu is no slouch. Plus the screen is really nice. For $299 I would recommend it. The Venu 2 looks to be a great watch that I can't wait to try when it goes on sale.vencc wrote: ↑ For those who care more about battery life than the OLED screen, I’d recommend the Vivoactive 4. Got one for myself a month ago and loving it so far. Has a lot of functionality and seems to last 4-5 days (running every other day for an hour with Bluetooth earphones on). I still question if I should switch to the Apple Watch sometimes just because I have an iPhone but I can’t get myself to wear that square shaped block on my wrist.

Had a similar experience as well. Garmin cannot compete with the UI of WatchOS. It's clunky and unintuitive in contrast.ericw wrote: ↑ I had one as a gift and sold it after playing with for a few weeks.
