We take a closer look at Garmin’s latest addition, the Venu, designed specifically to be a part of your everyday life. Here are its key features to look out for:

1. It’s stylish

It comes in four different colours for your picking – black with gold, light sand with rose gold, granite blue with silver and black with slate, with the bezel coming in an elegant metal finish.
