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.
