The Garmin Venu® Sq – Take Control of Your Health
Activity trackers have evolved tenfold. From the original Fitbit in 2009 to the seven generations of Apple Watches released, it’s not just a step counter anymore. With features like sleep cycle trackers, built-in coaches, and Bluetooth smartphone connections, activity trackers have become a one-stop-shop for monitoring your health and physical activity.
Garmin, known for its fitness watches, released their first model, Forerunner, in 2003. And as more companies vie to wrap their product around your wrist, know Garmin has already been there for years, and their model, Garmin Venu Sq at $199, is the next worthy contender. The Garmin Venu Sq low profile design with high-profile tracking and smart features will fit your bill, no matter what your downtime activities include.
Smart Garmin Venu Sq
You can connect your Venu Sq with a compatible smartphone to receive your texts, calls, and emails while you’re away from your phone. News notifications and Slack notifications make it through as well. Contactless payment is available, and you can personalize your watch through the Connect IQ store with apps, widgets, and faces.
The safety and tracking features come in handy if you’re biking alone; you can specify three certain contacts to be notified manually or automatically — with incident detection — of your location. Hopefully, you make it through your ride without incident, and you can look at a summary of your workout in the Garmin Connect App.
Garmin Activity Tracking
Among all the fitness tracking features like step tracking, intensity minutes, and multiple specific sports trackers, the Garmin Venu Sq has preloaded workouts, a personal running coach for upcoming races, and you can create your own workouts.
The activity tracker will monitor your heart rate, pulse Ox3, and respiration data throughout the day and while monitoring your sleep. Your stress levels and daily energy levels will keep you in tune with your most productive and tasking parts of your days. Optional tracking for hydration and monthly cycles is available as well.
The Garmin Finish
A lightweight aluminum bezel surrounds a durable Corning Gorilla glass with a soft silicone band that won’t impede any outfit but actually compliment it. The bright display will shine through the dark morning runs or the long Saturday round of 18 holes.
Venu Sq features an optional always-on mode and an ambient analog or digital time display. The battery life is six days. You’ll be able to track hikes, hydration, and leave your phone in the van during your next outdoor getaway without having to charge. With a water rating of 5 ATM, you can even track your laps during a weekend at the lake.
It’s available with an Orchid bezel and band, a slate bezel and gray band, or a gold bezel with a white band. Visit the Garmin store for other band options to spice it up.
While other companies have been dipping their toes in the waters of activity trackers, Garmin stands submerged. Having thought of everything an activity tracker could need — hello incident detection — Garmin is a frontrunner in the industry. And the Garmin Venu Sq is the epitome of their brand.
