By / 4 weeks ago / Gadgets / No Comments

Garmin Malaysia has launched the much awaited Venu Sq and Venu Sq Music Edition as its latest GPS smartwatches to complement the Venu lifestyle series first introduced in 2019. The new Venu Sq combines Garmin’s industry-leading health monitoring and fitness features with daily style and music; the Music Edition draws its additional quality from music playback features such as on-device music storage and Spotify compatibility.

With a sleek square watch face, bright color display, and a battery life of up to 6 days in smartwatch mode, and up to 14 hours in GPS mode, the Venu Sq inspires movement.

“Time has come for Garmin to offer a smartwatch that upholds the brand’s soaring standards of functionality at a price point that is more accessible to a broad range of users,” said Mr Ivan Ong, Senior Manager of Aeco Technologies Sdn. Bhd. “The Venu Sq packs a punch with over 20 built-in sports applications and non-stop (24/7) health monitoring features, the broadest of all-day tracking available on the market. Fitness enthusiasts may not be the only ones who will find the watches useful, in fact, the accessibility of Venu Sq when it comes to everyday uses, whether it’s for music or connectivity is next level paired with a almost a week’s worth of battery life to last you one activity to another.”

Centered on highlighting the everyday functions and style, Alif Satar, popular local celebrity and artist has been chosen to represent the Garmin Venu Sq as its Ambassador. The core of the series is based on its multi-functionality and style which is in reflection to Alif’s active and entertainment lifestyle – in hopes to inspire fellow Malaysians to “move”.

Everyday style at pocket-friendly prices

The Venu Sq series features a 1.3” rectangular Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchscreen display with a lightweight aluminum bezel and a comfortable silicone band. Designed to accompany every style, the Venu Sq is available in orchid/metallic orchid, white/light gold, and shadow gray/slate. The Venu Sq Music Edition is offered in light sand/rose gold, navy/light gold, moss/slate and black/slate.

Make health monitoring your priority

With a suite of health monitoring features supported by Garmin’s cutting-edge, 24/7 Elevate™ heart rate monitoring, which outpaces the competition by sampling heart rate multiple times per second, 24-hours a day. Other built-in health features include advanced sleep with Pulse Ox2, respiration tracking, abnormal heart rate alerts (high and low), menstrual cycle tracking, stress tracking with relax reminders, hydration tracking and more. Innovative Body Battery™ energy monitoring lets users monitor their energy level which can help with scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep.

When a situation calls to “just breathe,” users can access four mindful breathing activities right on their watch: “Tranquility” to promote sleep, “Coherence” to promote balance and calm, and two versions of “Relax and Focus” to encourage concentration and stress relief. At the end of each breathwork activity a summary is provided showing duration, respiration, average heart rate, and change in stress. Reviewing the activity in Garmin Connect™ enables the user to see this data represented in graphs.

When it’s time to move, the Venu Sq series boasts over 20 built-in indoor and outdoor sports apps including Pilates, yoga, strength training, running, pool swimming, cycling, and golf, just to name a few. Also tracked are steps, intensity minutes, calories burned and more. Need help planning a fitness routine? The Venu Sq’s robust suite of workout options include preloaded workouts on the watch, preset workouts available to download from Garmin Connect, and “create your own” customisable workouts. Whether training for a 5K or something longer, the Venu Sq is compatible with Garmin Coach.

Make the Venu Sq a daily essential

The Venu Sq series provides all-day connection and convenience with a host of smart features including:

  • Notifications: Receive smart notifications for incoming calls, text messages, social media updates, calendar reminders and more. Android users can reply to text messages from the device.
  • Music storage: With Venu Sq Music Edition, download songs or playlists, including those from third-party music services like Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer, right to the wrist.
