Garmin Adds ‘Incident Detection’ To Fenix 5 Plus, Forerunner 645M & Vivoactive 3M.
‘Incident (a.k.a. ‘Fall’) Detection‘ was pioneered, with great success, on the Apple Watch 4 last year.
Garmin offered it, for the first time, a few weeks ago, on the new Forerunner models, such as the Forerunner 945.
I, of course, immediately went looking for it. IT WAS THERE. It must have been in the 7.10 Firmware I downloaded to the watch April 29, 2019. I just checked. I am at 7:10 (cf413a9).
Support is also in ‘Garmin Connect’. I am at 4.18. Not sure when that was updated to that level.
But, I can confirm, and you can see the pictures, that I have it on my Fenix 5 Plus.
This is good. I am glad.
Feel bad for Fenix 5, FR 645 and Vivocative 3 owners. It can’t have been a storage issue. So, can’t see why they are only offering it on watches that have the additional storage (for music).
