Dear Body, Work on A Better You
By Catherine Alcalde | January 13, 2022
Looking at all angles closely, from everyday news of Covid-19 cases to seeing posts shared by other people’s experience facing the deadly disease on social media, and watching videos, reading articles of the effect of the ongoing pandemic on our economic status to a large degree, and receiving messages from friends, relatives, and your family being affected in all aspects- financially, physically, mentally, emotionally, you name it. It pretty much hits us hard and reveals some truths we are taking for granted.
There’s a saying that goes “There are things we can’t control and there are things we can.” What are the things we can’t? The occurrence of pandemics, natural disasters, and so on. What are the things we can control? Our well-being, health, choices to stay safe, and so on.
The thing is, no matter how we look at it Covid-19 is still present as a threat to you and your loved ones. Going outside is risky and you run the risk of catching it and spreading it to other people. This is our current situation, awful as it may be. But what can you do? Does it mean you can’t live a better life? Absolutely not! Knowing and being aware of what you can do allows you to look at things with an open mind to learn and educate yourself. It’s about embracing the respect, love, and safety of your body in ways you can contribute.
Garmin’s mission is for you to understand your body better with advanced health and fitness features using its technology. Dear Body, Work on a Better You is Venu 2 series slogan. It aims to advocate having power on making better choices for your body. If you want it, work for it. Every features holds true to help owners of their smartwatches to work on a better version of themselves through health and wellness.
Garmin recently launched the Venu 2 Plus, the brand’s leading hybrid smartwatch. It’s style displaying traditional and modern fashion and various features that will help you maximize your efforts for a healthier and stronger version of yourself.
The Venu 2 Plus has a crystal-clear AMOLED display that brings the watch to life, even under bright sunlight. It’s made of durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with a sleek stainless steel bezel and comfortable silicone band, making this smartwatch ready for anything. If you are someone who’s busy and on the move, one of the new smart features of the Venu 2 Plus is voice activation, so you can use your paired smartphone assistant to ask questions, respond to text messages, and answer phone calls right away from your wrist and connect it with your smartphone.
The Venu 2 Plus allows you to see your body’s energy levels throughout the day so you can find the best times for activity and rest. It also has the Pulse Ox3 sensor to spot-check your blood oxygen saturation at any point during the day, or while you sleep, to show how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
If you’re someone often on-the-go, rest is important. The Venu 2 Plus lets you know if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day and can set relax reminders to prompt you to do a short breathing activity whenever the watch detects that you’re feeling stressed. For women, the Garmin Connect app lets you track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. You can also log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education, and more on your wrist with the Women’s Health Tracking app.
The Venu 2 plus also has a hydration tracking feature to log your daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. You can even set a hydration goal based on how much you sweat during activities.
The Venu 2 Plus smartwatch also includes preloaded easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga, Pilates and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts and you can download more from the Garmin Connect app. You can track all the ways you move with more than 25 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps — including walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf, and more.
You can track your progress as you create healthy habits and break down bad ones that don’t contribute to your body and health goals. The process of educating yourself about your health is intentional, it’s not just about learning but also unlearning things that might be wrong. You can do research by reading helpful articles and books, or even talk to your doctors when deciding something about your health.
Garmin believes that health, especially in these times, is the true wealth. One should know the importance of working on a better you in our current situation. You have the power to work on yourself to protect and strengthen your immune system with proper exercise and activities. Want to be fit? Strong? Healthy? Work on it with Garmin.
