Garmin Venu 3 and Venu 3S leaked renders reveal design changes and new sensors
MySmartPrice has provided an early look at the Venu 3 series, a few days after Gadgets & Wearables revealed various features about the upcoming smartwatch series. As we discussed previously, Garmin will equip the replacement for the Venu 2 series with a skin temperature sensor, as well as improved sleep-tracking support. Not only do MySmartPrice's renders verify the authenticity of Gadgets & Wearables' earlier leak, but they also show what the smaller Venu 3S looks like.
Unsurprisingly, the successors to the Venu 2 and Venu 2S retain their circular display, with squircle-shaped displays likely left for a Venu Sq 2 successor. However, the Venu 3 series has smaller bezels than its predecessor, as well as revised icons surrounding its AMOLED panels. Moreover, all models will support GPS, GNSS and Wi-Fi connectivity, along with 5 ATM water resistance. Also, MySmartPrice's leak highlights Garmin's new larger sensor array, presumably making skin temperature monitoring possible.
Furthermore, it appears that Garmin will only offer the Venu 3 and Venu 3S as 45 mm and 41 mm smartwatches, respectively. If the company's past releases are anything to go by, then Garmin will eventually offer a mid-sized 43 mm option as the Venu 3 Plus. For reference, the Venu 3 supports 22 mm quick-release straps, whereas the Venu 3S is compatible with narrower 18 mm equivalents. Other details about the Venu 3 series are unknown for now, although the appearance of official device renders implies that Garmin is close to announcing Venu 2 and Venu 2S replacements.
