I fired up ‘Garmin Express‘ (now at 6.16.0.0) on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, while I was charging up my MARQ Expedition. I did NOT see a message that said there was a new software version.

But, when I unplugged it from USB the MARQ asked when it could install the new version of software.

From what I can see this new software version doesn’t do ANYTHING for I. That is not to say that the MARQ is without bugs. It loses the installed watch face on a regular basis — for one. To be honest I am not thrilled with the MARQ. Just glad that I didn’t buy it per se. It was an upgrade and ‘goodwill’ (for work performed). SMILE.

There Has Been NO Software Update To The ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus’ Since December 1, 2018; 6.51 Beta Only Fixes Biking Anomaly!

I hadn’t used my ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus‘ for 20-days. I was instead wearing an ‘Amazfit Verge‘ with a very pleasing AMOLED display.

Yesterday, when I went back to the Fenix 5 Plus, the first thing I did was USB charge it on my PC. While I was at it I fired up Garmin Express to check for updates. There were NONE! I was surprised. I expected there to be one. Nada.

So, today I went looking. OK, there is a 6.51 beta, released on December 17, 2018, but per the Change Log it only has one bike-related fix.

Hhhmmm … I am surprised and disappointed. I had expected that Garmin would have rolled out a slew of fixes and some new features. Maybe it was the holidays. Stay tuned … What else can we do. Try to contact Garmin? That was a JOKE.

‘Amazfit Verge’ Now At Software Version 3.2.0.13 (Jump From 3.2.0.7).

Click to access this post from 9 days ago.


On a hunch I checked for updates this morning. Bingo. There was one. I, of course, downloaded — over Wi-Fi. Very quick. Download and install all within 3-4 minutes. That was good.

Appears that this version, 3.2.0.13 added 3 European languages — viz. French, Italian & German — and, as was to be expected, fixed some bugs. Alas, it doesn’t list what they were. Shame.

I have not noticed anything appreciably different. Floors climbed is still erratic but now counting more than it did previously.

That they have gone through 6 versions of software in 9-days is both impressive and scary. That is a lot. But, shows that they are committed. We are not even close to being done. This watch still needs some tweaking before it is ready for Prime Time.

‘Amazfit Verge’ Now At Software Version 3.2.0.7.

My Amazfit Verge updated to 3.2.0.7 as soon as I set it up and paired it with an Android Tablet.

The update was done over Wi-Fi and was very quick. Couple of minutes. No hassle.

It was supposed to increase stability and added more sports. I didn’t get to read the whole ‘blurb’ which appeared on the screen.

Since I have only had this watch for three days this is the only software I have seen. So, I cannot comment on it.

So far it seems fine. I haven’t run into any problems. Everything seems fairly accurate.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

My ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus’ Is Now At Software Version 6.0.

Downloaded automatically, without I even noticing it, when I plugged my Fenix 5 Plus into my computer on Friday night, November 30, 2018. Couldn’t have been a large download. By the time I fired up ‘Garmin Express‘ it must have been already downloaded because I did NOT see it updating on ‘Express’.

Only realized that there was new software once I unplugged the USB-cable and a message came up about the new software that has been downloaded.

Have not noticed ANY changes, whatsoever, as yet.

I went looking for what changes had been made. Refer to 3rd image above. I am NOT blown away. Nothing that applies to I. Hhhmmmm. I am sure they fixed various ‘small’ issues that they are not telling us about.
