There smart watch Garmin Venu 3 should hit the market soon for fitness enthusiasts who want a sporty watch with an everyday look.
New software screenshots, picked up by Gadgets & Wearables, show that two of the main improvements over the Venu 2 will likely be skin temperature monitoring and sleep coach functionwhich has been rumored so far.
Smartwatches like the Apple Watch 8 already offer skin temperature sensors, but it would certainly be a welcome addition for the Venu 3. It can help with everything from sleep to detecting the first signs of fever, by through overtraining. It can also help track menstrual cycles.
We’ve already seen hints in the Garmin Connect app that the company may be including skin temperature sensors in its future watches, with the app’s code referring to wrist temperature monitoring while on the go. sleep tracking.
Now it looks like the upcoming Venu 3 will take advantage of this feature, albeit with some practical limitations. For example, Garmin’s temperature sensors only seem to work during sleepas environmental factors and physical exertion can interfere with readings during waking hours.
A sleep coach!
This won’t be the Venu 3’s only sleep tracking feature, as software leaks suggest Garmin’s Sleep Coach will also be compatible with the new smart watch. While Garmin watches already offer basic sleep tracking (like breaking down your sleep stages), this new coach should go further with additional analysis and information on the quality of your rest.
You’ll get personalized feedback on your sleep quality, advice on how much sleep you’ll need to recover from after training, and the exciting prospect of a nap analysis. Unlike current Garmin watches, the Venu 3 should factor naps into your overall “sleep need” estimate. It is not yet known if this function will be available on older watches or on which models.
We might not have to wait long to find out, if the rumors are to be believed. While we were expecting a late September launch, the Venu 3 looks increasingly likely to arrive sooner, with Gadgets & Wearables suggesting thatit could arrive in the “days” to come.
