The Hybrid Watch – vívomove Sport
Stylised with real ticking watch hands that move to reveal a hidden touchscreen display, the vívomove Sport is designed for those who seek a subtle way to stay connected while tracking their health using a series of essential tools such as all-day stress tracking, Body Battery monitoring, hydration logging and more.
Inspired by sophistication and comfort, the vívomove Sport features a silicone band and color-coordinated watch dial in warm colorways added with refined metallic accents that boost dimension. Powered with a battery life of up to 5 days in smartwatch mode with up to an additional day in watch mode (hands only), the vívomove Sport can be used with either Android
or Apple® smartphones with smart notifications for incoming calls, text messages, social media updates and alerts.
GPS Smartwatch – Venu 2 Plus
Alternatively, the Venu 2 Plus provides a full-bodied entourage of health and fitness features including: sleep score with insights, stress tracking, energy monitoring, Pulse Ox1, women’s health features and a wide variety of fitness and workout options. The Venu 2 Plus has 75+ preset animated workouts for cardio, yoga, strength, HIIT and Pilates that demonstrate proper form and technique in Garmin Connect and on the wrist.
Its new voice functionality empowers users to take calls and connect to their smartphone’s voice assistant to send texts, ask questions and operate smart home devices. This feature is compatible with Siri, Google Assistant and Bixby. Powered with a bright AMOLED display and a battery life of up to 9 days, the latest Venu 2 Plus is a direct line to both connectivity and wellbeing.
Mr. Scoppen Lin, Assistant General Manager, Garmin Asia, said, “For an active lifestyle, multi-tasking is crucial, on-device voice capabilities of the latest Venu 2 Plus grants users the ability to have conversations directly through the smartwatch and the vívomove Sport has the added capability to respond to texts without needing the users to dig through their pocket or bag. Both smartwatches promote beyond health awareness where safety and tracking features such as the automatic incident detection helps send a message with the user’s location to their emergency contacts2. Plus, Garmin’s LiveTrack allows friends and families to track the user’s outdoor activity2. Users can even assign a designated emergency contact for the Venu 2 Plus.”
