Garmin Malaysia encourages Malaysians to fight the pandemic together with a special giveaway this Health Awareness Month
Kuala Lumpur, 2 July 2021 – With love for the local community, Garmin Malaysia aligns alongside National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme Malaysia. In celebration of Health Awareness Month, Garmin Malaysia introduces a people-focused competition to encourage Malaysians to come together to achieve herd immunity. The competition is wholly based on motivating people to produce content on social media, consequently spreading positive awareness nationwide.
Taking place from 2nd July to 2nd August 2021, the competition involves participants in creating and posting creative content of their vaccination experience on Instagram using Garmin’s official template with the hashtag: #GarminCucukReward and tag Garmin Malaysia official account. In return, the winner will stand a chance to receive a Venu 2 or a Venu 2s worth RM 1,799 respectively, both of which are equipped with the Pulse Oximetry functionality.
Pulse Ox (SpO2)
Garmin devices use Pulse Ox sensors to calculate blood oxygen saturation. Pulse Ox is one of the most reliable technologies for detecting blood oxygen saturation. Our cardiovascular system is responsible for distributing oxygen throughout our bodies. Blood oxygen saturation (Sp02) is a valuable indicator of health and physiological function. By tracking your blood oxygen saturation, you can better understand your body. According to the Mayo Clinic, a body at rest at sea level should have blood oxygen saturation between 95 to 100 per cent. Below 90 % is considered excessively low, which can potentially indicate health problems due to the lack of oxygen in blood, such as respiratory difficulties, pneumonia, lung infections and to be more relevant to our times, Covid-19.
SpO2 can help you to assess your body’s acclimatization, and track increases or decreases in your blood oxygen saturation as your altitude changes. Monitoring changes in your SpO2 during sleep is useful for identifying sleep disorders, and tracking it while awake can provide insights into our physical performance under all kinds of conditions, helping you keep track of longer-term trends in your personal health.
