Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced VenuTM – a new GPS smartwatch with a vibrant AMOLED screen and the broadest available range of 24/7 health monitoring features in the market. With a battery life of up to 5 days in smartwatch mode and rapid charging in between, Venu users don’t miss out on valuable health insights. Check out the video here. The Venu is one of many new wearables launched by Garmin at IFA in Berlin, Germany, September 6-11, and will be on display at the Garmin stand in Hall 4.2, Booth 232.

“We’re thrilled to announce Garmin’s first smartwatch with an AMOLED display,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Venu breathes life and color into live watch faces and animated workouts. In keeping with Garmin standards, all of this is achieved without sacrificing battery life.”

Health and Wellness

The Venu boasts the broadest range of 24/7 health monitoring features available in the market, including advanced sleep with pulse ox1, new respiration tracking, abnormal heartrate alerts, menstrual cycle tracking, stress tracking with relax reminders, new hydration tracking, new breathwork activities and more. Innovative Body BatteryTM energy monitoring lets users check energy levels at any given moment, which can help with scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep.

Animated and Customized Workouts

Venu’s AMOLED screen brings workouts to life with 40+ on-device animated workouts for strength training, cardio, yoga and Pilates. These easy-to-follow workouts demonstrate proper form and technique right on the user’s wrist. The Venu’s robust suite of workout options includes preloaded workouts on the watch, preset workouts available to download from Garmin ConnectTM, and “create your own” customizable workouts. Whether training for a 5K or something longer, the Venu 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.

Fitness Features

With GPS, ElevateTM wrist-based heart rate2, and over 20 built-in indoor and outdoor sports apps including Pilates, yoga, running, pool swimming, golf and more, the Venu is packed with features to keep up with a varied and active lifestyle. Need to take a breather or boost mindfulness? The Venu offers new structured breathwork activities designed to promote focus and relaxation.

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. New respiration tracking measures the number of breaths per minute, and Pulse Ox gauges blood oxygen saturation levels. Together, this data can demonstrate sleep quality. 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.

Smart Features for Life on the Go

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

Meet the Garmin® Instinct®: a GPS watch built tough for the outdoors

 

Garmin announced Instinct, a strong and durable GPS watch with built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter plus multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) support and wrist-based heart rate. In addition to key GPS data, ABC and heart rate sensors, Instinct includes built-in sports apps, smart connectivity and wellness data.

 

The Instinct is a reliable tool built to endure challenging environments. The Instinct is constructed to military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters) with a fiber reinforced polymer case. It’s built with a chemically strengthed and scratch-resistant display that’s easy-to-read, especially in direct sunlight. Plus, the fully vented silicone bands include two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit.

While in the field, feel confident exploring off the beaten path thanks to the Instinct, which features multiple GNSS satellite networks to help track a users location in more challenging environments than with just GPS alone. Before venturing out, use the Garmin Explore™ app to plan the trip in advance and when it’s time to head back to camp, the TracBack® feature on the watch can navigate the same route back to the original starting point.

With built-in wrist based heart rate, users can monitor daily activity, stress, sleep and other wellness data1. Whether camping, on a training run or going through day-to-day activities, Instinct keeps track of heart rate, steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and more.

Through heart rate variability, the Instinct can track stress levels, allowing the user to be more aware of when physical or emotional sources may cause stress levels to rise.

When paired with a compatible smartphone, Instinct users can leave their phone packed away and protected while they receive smart notifications like texts, emails and other alerts right on the wrist. Instinct is compatible with Garmin Connect™, an online fitness community where users can track workouts, sleep patterns such as how much time spent in light, deep and REM cycles, and even compete in virtual fitness challenges. The Instinct will also be compatible with other Garmin devices including inReach MiniVIRB action cameras and dog tracking devices. Send and receive inReach Mini satellite communication messages2, declare an SOS, control the VIRB start and stop function and get dog status updates and alerts for viewing at a glance on the watch.

The vívosmart 4 also introduces a Body BatteryTM energy monitor that estimates the body’s energy reserves, letting users know the optimal time for activity and rest. Body Battery at 90? Go crush that cycling class! Clocking in at 20? Better take it easy.

In addition to pulse ox, the vívosmart 4 features Garmin’s new advanced sleep monitoring which estimates light, deep and REM stages of sleep, along with movement throughout the night. Upon awakening, users can review their sleep stats in the Garmin ConnectTM Mobile app.

Fusion Launches Revolutionary Apollo Series

Fusion is proud to be leading the way in marine audio entertainment. Building on their industry recognised True-Marine™ design philosophy, the new Apollo Series will forever change the face of marine audio entertainment and set a new standard by which all others will be created.

Combining creative design with technological brilliance, the RA770 is the flagship of the Apollo Series. As the world’s first purpose-built marine entertainment system featuring built-in Wi-Fi and a touchscreen display, the RA770 takes marine audio entertainment to the next level.

The brilliant optically bonded, full-color LCD glass touchscreen makes trying to locate the right button a thing of the past. Simply tap the screen to pause and play, or swipe through a playlist to find your favorite song. The stylish one-piece glass display is also an attractive addition to any steering station, with the option to install the stereo flush, or flat to blend in seamlessly with modern glass helms.

Fusion’s new Apollo Series also includes the SRX400 zone stereo, delivering Apollo’s truly powerful feature set in a compact, versatile form factor. Like the RA770, the SRX400 offers Wi-Fi audio streaming, Fusion’s DSP and PartyBus functionality.

“For many years our head units have defined marine audio entertainment,” said Fusion’s Managing Director, Chris Baird. “While there has always been an ability to add features, no one has created a paradigm shift in this space, until now. After listening to our customers and closely examining trends and innovations in other industries like touchscreen and glass helm systems, we knew it was time to change everything. We are very excited to introduce Apollo to the world.”

Harnessing the power of Fusion DSP, the Apollo Series ensures premium audio is delivered to all speakers in any environment, for the pinnacle of sound quality. With Fusion’s system approach, every step of the audio chain is optimized through calculations by their audio engineers to deliver a technically superior listening experience – without the need for you to have a technical understanding.

The free Fusion-Link app makes setting up DSP profiles simple. With only a few clicks, you can set up the preconfigured DSP profile to play high-quality audio customised for your ears and the specific listening environment. Precisely calculated loudness curves optimised for the human ear ensure quality audio delivery at every volume level, giving you quality, full-range sound whether the volume is turned all the way up or all the way down.

PartyBus is Fusion’s audio distribution network of the future. Engineered for those who value the freedom of musical choice, to play what they want, where they want, it gives you the power to command the party across the whole boat or relax quietly in a single cabin, regardless of others’ preferences.

The power of PartyBus kicks in when you add more PartyBus enabled stereos to your on-board entertainment system. Each additional PartyBus enabled stereo gives you the option to join Party Mode to play the same perfectly synced audio throughout the entire vessel, or to opt into Personal Mode to play your own audio source in the zone of your choice without disrupting the party in other areas of the vessel.

Providing more source options than ever before, the Apollo RA770 gives you the ability to play your favorite soundtrack via Bluetooth, Optical Audio (TV), AM/FM radio, AUX or USB, as well as having advanced SiriusXM features available (USA only) and being DAB+ ready (Europe and Australia only).

Being the world’s first marine Wi-Fi audio entertainment system, you can also finally stream music from a compatible device via Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), providing the highest quality audio streaming available. The Apollo Series can also wirelessly connect multiple Apollo stereos without running any cables, reducing installation time, cost and complexity.

Both products in the Apollo Series are rated IPX7 water and dust resistant from the front faces when installed correctly, to give you peace of mind when out on the water season after season. The RA770 and SRX400 feature a 4.3-inch and 2.7-inch display respectively, along with internal Class-D amplifiers for high quality output with reduced battery drain, making them perfect for use in the marine environment.

The RA770 features two auxiliary inputs, one SPDIF port for TV audio output, one Ethernet port, one USB 2.0 port for phone charging and media playback, one SiriusXM port, one Motorola antenna connector port, and is DAB+ ready. The SRX400 features an Ethernet port and one Motorola antenna connector port, and both stereos offer multi-language support, including English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch and Italian settings.

Fusion is dedicated to offering innovative solutions to enhance your on-water audio entertainment experience, leading the way for marine and lifestyle audio entertainment. Welcome to a new era of marine audio entertainment with the Apollo Series.

Garmin debuts the fēnix 5 Plus, adds maps, music, Garmin Pay and wrist-based Pulse Ox to its popular multisport GPS watch series

Garmin announced the fēnix 5 Plus series, its next generation of GPS multisport watches with built-in routable topographical maps, storage for music playlists, Garmin Pay™ contactless payment solution and wrist-based Pulse Oximeter 1 for altitude acclimation awareness. Like other fēnix 5 watches, the fēnix 5S Plusfēnix 5 Plus and fēnix 5X Plus are built for athletes and adventures of all sizes. These rugged yet premium crafted watches range in size from 42-51mm and all boast a bright, sunlight readable display. The fēnix 5S Plus features a 1.2-inch display, which is almost a 20% increase over the fēnix 5S, meaning users don’t have to sacrifice screen size for a watch fit for smaller wrists.

The fēnix 5X Plus is Garmin’s first wearable to offer a wrist-based Pulse Oximeter, which is especially useful for higher altitude activities.

“We are thrilled to bring exciting new features to our most popular outdoor GPS wearable series,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “We’ve added some of our most sought-after features like built-in mapping, music and contactless payments to each new model in the fēnix 5 Plus series, and with the introduction of the Pulse Ox feature in the fēnix 5X Plus, our customers can now have more confidence taking their adventures to even greater heights.”

Featuring wrist-based heart rate and all of the multisport and smart connectivity features of the previous fēnix 5 models, each of the watches in the Plus series will also include built-in map data optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking. These maps can be used with the round-trip course creator that allows runners and cyclists to enter a distance they would like to run or ride, then select a route from a list of appropriate courses to choose from. First introduced in our premium cycling computers, the Trendline popularity routing feature will use Garmin Connect™ data to help users find and follow the best trails and running routes based on billions of miles logged by previous Garmin users. Runners can feel more comfortable knowing they’re going down a path or trail that has been previously explored by others.

The fēnix 5S Plus, fēnix 5 Plus, and fēnix 5X Plus will also offer on-device music storage, up to 500 songs, for phone-free listening. Download offline playlists from select music streaming services2 like iHeartRadio, Deezer, and more, or transfer music from a computer directly to the watch. Once the playlist is loaded, simply pair the device with compatible Bluetooth® headphones (sold separately) and start listening. All sizes of the Plus series will also include Garmin Pay, a contactless payment solution3, meaning fēnix Plus wearers can leave their cash and credit cards at home, but still be able to grab a beverage or bite after a long day on the mountain. Utilizing their Garmin Pay wallet, users have the same rewards and benefits of the physical cards, with the convenience of having them right on the wrist.

Each fēnix 5 Plus model is packed with sophisticated training features to help monitor form and performance. Users can tap into physiological metrics, running dynamics and more to track workout stats, measure progress and fine-tune form. Training status automatically evaluates recent exercise history to let users know if they’re overtraining, maintaining or peaking. The fēnix 5 Plus series are Connect IQ compatible, so users customize their watch with widgets, data fields, watch faces and apps. When paired with a compatible smartphone4, users can get call, text and email notifications right on their wrist. Additionally, users can customize the look of their watch with QuickFit® bands. Simply swap a silicone band for a leather or titanium strap, no tools necessary. New colors of the QuickFit bands have been added to the Plus series including but not limited to frost blue, seafoam, and solar flare orange.

Every fēnix 5 Plus watch features multinetwork satellite reception, now including Galileo to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. This is particularly helpful when adventuring in places without a clear view of the sky like deep canyons or urban environments.

Constructed with premium-grade materials, the fēnix 5 Plus series is built tough for challenging environments. Available in two distinctive finishes, users can choose between a PVD-coated stainless-steel bezel with silicone watch band, or for a lighter material, a high-performing titanium bezel version with brushed titanium bracelet. Each version features a full-color Garmin Chroma Display with LED backlighting to assure sunlight readability and is water-rated to 100 meters5. The fēnix 5S Plus can get up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and up to 4 hours in GPS and Music mode;6 the fēnix 5 Plus can get up to 10 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS and Music mode; and the fēnix 5X Plus can get up to 20 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and 13 hours in GPS and Music mode. Users can also take advantage of the UltraTrac™ power saver mode to extend battery life even more.

The fēnix 5 Plus series is the latest solution from Garmin’s expanding outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies and innovations to enhance users’ outdoor experiences. Whether hiking, hunting, trail running, mountain biking, golfing, diving or using satellite communication, Garmin outdoor devices are becoming essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels.

inReach Mini from Garmin, a small but mighty two-way satellite communicator for any adventure

The inReach Mini, a smaller and more compact satellite communicator with available two-way messaging and a 24/7 SOS function when combined with an inReach subscription to access the Iridium® satellite network. Measuring just under 4 inches tall by 2 inches wide, and weighing 3.5 ounces, the inReach Mini can easily be carried in a backpack, boat, plane, or glovebox. No more worrying about spotty coverage or being within range of a cell tower – the inReach Mini works anywhere when using the Iridium satellite network.

For the ultra-light experience, the inReach Mini encompasses it all, from messaging to tracking to declaring an SOS. It can be used on its own or paired with a compatible device. The Earthmate® app easily pairs with the inReach Mini via Bluetooth to a compatible smartphone for access to unlimited maps, aerial imagery, and U.S. NOAA charts. The Earthmate app also allows all of the inReach features to be accessed through the paired mobile device, so a user can reach anyone in their contact list. The app will seamlessly allow the user to access their compatible device’s contact list for quick access without manual entry.

The inReach Mini also works with Garmin’s increasingly popular fēnix smartwatch line to send and receive messages from their watch with the device securely fastened to their pack, kit, or vehicle. The user can remotely program the device to send and receive messages with compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables or other mobile devices. For example, a trail runner can be off the beaten path and be using their watch to not only track their stats but remotely control their inReach Mini to send and receive messages. See all compatible devices here.

Pilots will also have the same ability to send and receive messages conveniently through their Garmin Pilot™ app right from the cockpit. Garmin Pilot leverages the inReach Mini’s GPS positioning to drive a georeferenced aircraft position symbol on a tablet’s moving map display. The device has the ability to provide tracking for those wanting to follow the flight, using the web-based MapShare™ page created for each inReach account.

Like all inReach devices, a user can hit the SOS button in case of emergency that sends a distress signal to GEOS®, a 24/7 International Emergency Response Coordination Center. GEOS will track the device which triggered the SOS, notify the proper contacts, and send the necessary emergency responders to the exact location. GEOS will deliver a confirmation that help is on the way and also continually update the user on the status of the response team. GEOS will also reach out to the user’s emergency contact and alert them of the situation.
