My Garmin Fenix 5 Is Now Running Firmware Version 9.20.

The upgrade was pretty painless once I did it via Garmin ExpressUSB attached.

The Bluetooth update failed.

It took a little while to install on the watch — and restart. But, I had read about that somewhere else, and as such was not overly concerned.

What is new in 9.20 is covered in this post.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

Garmin Fenix 5: Firmware Version 9.20 Is Now Being Rolled Out To All Users.

My Fenix 5 was at firmware 8.0 when I got it on May 4, 2018.

As I type this ‘Garmin Connect‘ on my Google Pixel 2 phone is trying to download the new software update over Bluetooth. Not too happy about that. Would have preferred to have done it, over USB, with ‘Garmin Express‘. C’est la vie.

<< It is installing it on my Fenix 5 as I type. It failed! Just updated & had it installed via Garmin Express in seconds! >>

Two BIGGIES as far as I am concerned — as marked with arrows above, i.e., the improvements to sleep and stress monitoring. In both cases more out of curiosity than anything else. I sleep well. Never had issues, mainly because I am dead tired when I go to sleep. About 50% of my sleep is ‘deep’!

Compared to what I used to see on my two Vivoactive 3s, the Fenix 5 stress readings looked suspect. So, I am interested to see how this update will change that.

I will keep you posted.

Kind of late in the morning this year —
7 minutes after 6 am.
Last year it was soon after midnight.

I will NOT be up.
Way too early for I.

Plus 

MY LEAST FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR!

Days start getting shorter — and I hate that.

To I, it means Winter is on the way.

06:07 am Eastern in the USA — 10:07 am GMT.


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘timeanddate.com’, of course. Note, LONGEST day of the year, but days start getting shorter right away! Bummer.


Last  Two Year.

Garmin Announces Fenix 5 Plus With Maps, Pay, Music & Galileo (GPS) etc. On June 18, 2018.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Text straight from Garmin.



The features are per what I gave you a heads up on 7-days ago: i.e., TOPO maps, Garmin Pay, Music & Galileo “GPS”.

One thing new is the expensive titanium cases. Lots of models. Check them out here, on the Garmin site.

It is claimed to have “blood oxygen” monitoring — and it does, BUT only in the Fenix 5X Plus. Got that. Just in the 5X Plus.

Garmin is claiming availability within the week BUT I doubt that. I will most likely UPGRADE to one, trade-in in my current Fenix 5, BUT I will probably wait till Christmas.
