The revised Altitude Acclimation widget, which may now provide altitude acclimation as a percentage, is one of the additional upgrades that are particular to the Fenix 6 and MARQ devices. Customers have the option to turn off auto-lap notifications when playing golf. Moreover, if tracking is chosen and an inReach device is out of range, you are now prompted. Version 25.76 of the devices makes it possible to distinguish between skiing downhill and using a ski lift when skiing. The update includes a number of bug fixes, including the failure of low battery notifications to initiate a transfer between power modes and a UI problem while editing alarms.
There are no longer any issues with the default battery mode settings or connecting headphones. Issues that prevented the weight setting from being automatically repeated in additional sets of the Strength activity or that led to a device crash have also been repaired. While eligible devices receive standard Garmin Beta updates automatically, this new software needs to be sideloaded into your smartwatch. You can use Garmin Connect to sign up for the Garmin Beta Program. In particular for alpha updates, the firm has revealed steps to simplify the system.
