In September this year, Garmin had launched Instinct Solar and Fenix 6 Pro Solar smartwatches with solar charging technology. The smart wearables maker has now introduced two new offerings called Venu Sq and Venu Sq Music Edition. Notably, they were released in global markets in September.
Garmin had launched its first smartwatch under Venu series last December. However, the latest devices are different compared to the previous offering. The smartwatches come with a range of health-centric and convenient features. Let’s take a look below.
Garmin Venu Sq and Venu Sq Music Edition specifications and features
The Garmin Venu Sq and Venu Sq Music Edition sport a 1.3-inch colour display in a square dial. It comes with always-on display mode and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. There are two buttons on the side for navigations and other functions. The smartwatch is water-resistant up to 5ATM.
The Garmin Venu Sq series packs a host of health-related features. It is equipped with a 24×7 heart rate monitor and pulse ox sensor (SpO2). The smartwatch is capable of tracking heart rate even underwater. The wearable device also comes with an advanced sleep monitor, respiration tracking, stress levels, mindfulness breathing, and menstrual cycle tracker. There is also a hydration tracking feature that reminds the user to stay hydrated.
The Garmin Venu Sq smartwatches are equipped with a Body Battery energy monitoring feature that lets users monitor their energy levels and know when it’s time for activity and rest. The wearables come with pre-loaded workouts and 20 built-in sports including walking, running, cycling, swimming, golf and more. There is also a personal running coach that helps users train for 5K, 10K, or half-marathon events.
Like most smartwatches, the Garmin Venu Sq series displays smart notifications like emails, text and call alerts. Users can also control music playback from their wrist. As the name suggests, the Venu Sq Music Edition ships with internal storage to download and save songs on the device without having to pair it with a phone. The Venu Sq smartwatches come with a built-in incident detection feature that sends a live location to the user’s contacts manually when the watch is paired with the phone.
The Garmin Venu Sq series features built-in GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 and is compatible with Android and iOS devices. The brand’s latest offerings are backed by up to 6 days of battery life.
