There's a big difference between smartwatches made by consumer technology companies and those made by fitness companies, and that's 'friction'. The friction that you have to deal with on a regular basis to make use of your watch. It's the one thing that dogs Garmin's Venu, a watch that's just a little bit too annoying for me to recommend it.
Venu suffers from first-device syndrome in that it's not as fully realized of an AMOLED smartwatch as it could have been. ... Garmin's software is one reason why many athletes and fitness enthusiasts choose the company's wearables, so I don't foresee a major shift in overall strategy in the future.
