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.
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.
This was ludicrous! It really was like shooting fish in a barrell. The poor Afghans were totally and utterly outclassed. It was cruel in the end.
The Afghans lasted a total of 65.9 overs across BOTH their innings. They are supposed to be ODI experts but they didn’t last 50 overs in either innings.
I hadn’t seen that much of Afghanistan in the past, but what I had seen, I had liked. They were exciting and their spinners were magical. And I also got to see Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the IPL. Rashid looked a million dollars in the IPL. In this match he looked pedestrian.
Having them play India in their first Test match was crazy — even if this was India B (without Virat Kohli). Maybe they should have cut their teeth against Bangladesh, Zimbabwe or even Sri Lanka. But, based on their performance they would have struggled against any Test side. Yes, they will improve over time.
But, they have to start getting realistic. Shahzad is a really nice guy and his batting can be exhilarating. But, he really is too fat for Test cricket and his run out proved that. He needs to be put out to grass.
Now that Garmin, with the somewhat star-crossed Forerunner 645M, has worked out who to put music into their watches there is no stopping them.
We learned yesterday that they will be introducing a Fenix 5 PLUS range that has music — and today the announcement of the Vivoactive 3M at $299.99. The non-music Vivoactive 3 is now down to $249.99. I think that that is a full $80 — $100 cheaper than what it was when introduced last November.
Challenging times for Garmin. It is getting squeezed on all sides by Fitbit, Apple, Samsung …
I will, as always, keep you posted.
