It was downloaded, over Bluetooth, to my watch yesterday, i.e., April 27, 2019. I was surprised. Usually I only get updates when I am USB-connected to Garmin Express.
Version 7.10 appears to be a RENUMBERED 6.72 or 6.4x build! Check the Forum, they still have a ‘sticky’ for a 6.72 beta — which fixes the swim workout bug mentioned as the 1st item in 7.10!
This is expected to be a busy week for Garmin. SMILE. Watch this space.
I kind of knew there were some betas so I went to the Garmin Forums to check what is going on.
I was right. Last update was at the end of November 2018 — Version 6. I have that. Nothing since.
That is NOT right. It isn’t as if there are no bugs that need to be fixed or features added.
Garmin used to be pretty good at doing updates. But, now … this.
Sure, they want some of us to UPGRADE to the MARQ series. We will see.
There Has Been NO Software Update To The ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus’ Since December 1, 2018; 6.51 Beta Only Fixes Biking Anomaly!

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.

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.
