Amazon slashes up to $100 off the latest smartwatches from Garmin

The Apple Watch is undoubtedly one of the best smart wearables you’d find but it does come at a hefty price. An underdog like Garmin has various models available that match up with fitness-centric features along with tremendous battery life. If you’ve been on the fence about getting a smartwatch or a fitness tracker, Amazon’s deals on Garmin’s Venu and Vivoactive 4 simply lets you have it both ways with up to $100 worth of savings.

The Venu is one of the latest models released last October and the first smartwatch from Garmin with a 390 x 390 pixel AMOLED display on a 1.2-inch touchscreen. You’re in store for a comfortable viewing experience as you watch animated and easy-to-follow workouts right from your dial or as you get tips from Garmin Coach. And with 20 preloaded GPS indoor and outdoor sports apps including swimming with water resistance to 5ATM, you’ll certainly have enough ways to keep your endorphins going.

Fitness is indeed where the Venu shines as it boasts the broadest all-day health monitoring features that would help you get a better understanding of your body. You’ll simply have the means to keep track of your energy levels, respiration, stress sleep, estimated heart rate, and more apart from the basic steps or calories burnt. Ladies will appreciate that there’s even a log for tracking menstrual cycles.

Once paired with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, you’ll instantly have access to smart notifications, app alerts, and long-term progress tracking through the Garmin Connect app. And if you’re quite the athletic music lover, you’ll be able to go for a hands-free workout with the option to download songs or playlists to the Venu. You might not even have to bother bringing your wallet as contactless payments are possible with Garmin pay while its battery can last you up to 5 days depending on use.

Garmin may have put function over style before but the Venu is a solid mix of both,m making for one dynamic wearable. Amazon’s $100 discount lets you have all this glitz and glamour for just $300 instead of $400. Then you can make it all the more yours by customizing it for free through the Connect IQ Store.

Garmin Vivoactive 4 — $288 ($62 Off)

If you can do without the AMOLED display in exchange for an even longer battery life that can stretch for 8 days, then the Vivoactive 4 is another good option and a worthy upgrade from the Vivoactive 3. While it has a lower pixel resolution of 260 x 260, it does have a bigger 1.3-inch touchscreen. And even though it costs less, it is similar to the Venu in most ways.

The Vivoactive 4 likewise enables you to view workout videos on the watch, and it comes with 20 preloaded activity profiles plus Garmin Coach. Being untethered from your device is also possible both because you connect wirelessly via Bluetooth and also because of the built-in GPS, music storage, and Garmin Pay. You also won’t be missing out on the broadest all-day health monitoring features with its 24/7 wrist-based heart rate monitor, Pulse Ox sensors, and more.

The device also maintains an edge as an activity tracker with quite a few smart capabilities. Some features, like the ability to respond to text messages, can only be maximized by Android users, but rest assured, anyone will be able to receive notifications, alerts, playback controls, and access to the Garmin Connect app or the Connect IQ Store, regardless of whenther they have an iOS or Android device.

Usually priced at $350, you can order the Vivoactive 4 from Amazon and get more bang for your buck and pay only $288.
