Stay connected to your social, track daily activity and sleep patterns, and get coaching for your first 5k right from your wrist. Beneath the Venu SQ’s clean lines lies a powerful smartwatch and activity tracker. Using the latest generation Elevate™ optical heart rate monitor, your pulse is taken from the back of the watch. Heart rate information is used for tracking calories, stress level, fitness age, and more. Internal GPS and accelerometers track training metrics like speed and distance, turning movement into data, making sure you get credit for your work in the gym and on the trails. When you need a little personal time, follow along with a mindful breathing exercise to get your day back on track. Pairing the Venu SQ with the free Garmin Connect app opens a whole new set of features, you can review activities, receive notifications, track the weather, control phone apps and much more. From 24/7 heartrate monitoring, to personalized training plans, the Venu SQ helps you understand how your body handles to every day life.
