Health and Wellness
The Venu Sq series takes wellbeing seriously with a suite of health monitoring features supported by Garmin’s cutting-edge, 24/7 Elevate™ heart rate monitoring1, 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 breath work activity a summary is provided showing duration, respiration, average heart rate, and change in stress. Reviewing the activity in Garmin Connect enables user to see this data represented in graphs.

Fitness and Customisable Workouts
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 more1. 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, free training plans adapted to a runner’s goals and performance, complete with a virtual personal trainer for added motivation.

Advanced Sleep with Respiration and Pulse Ox
When it’s time to wind down, advanced sleep monitoring estimates light, deep and REM stages of sleep. Respiration tracking measures the number of breaths per minute, and Pulse Ox gauges blood oxygen saturation levels. Upon awakening, users can review their sleep stats in Garmin Connect to see whether they are getting the quality sleep they need to feel rested and recharged the next day. Pulse Ox spot checks can also be performed at any time during the day2. Venu Sq also supports all-day Pulse Ox tracking which can optionally be turned on in the user’s settings.

Smart Features for Life on the Go
The Venu Sq series provides all-day connection and convenience with a host of smart features including:

  • Notifications: Receive smart notifications3 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 playlists4, including those from third-party music services like Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer, right to the wrist.
