Very UnGarmin like Update for the Fenix


Garmin just released a beta update for the Fenix with new features that surprised the hell out of me! They basically gave all the fitness functionality including foot pod less indoor run tracking, the ability to create intervals and to download custom workouts from Garmin Connect. Last but not least an improved ski profile. And added smart watch functionality using Bluetooth 4.0 such as displaying text messages and incoming call info for iPhone users.

Those of us with longtime experience with Garmin are amazed at what they are giving away rather than adding to a new device expecting us to upgrade, especially in a device so long in the tooth for Garmin. I hope this attitude spreads to their other product lines!

Sorry about the double post!


This is an awesome update!!!!!

I've had the fenix for about a year, and I like it more and more.

When you are dead, you don’t know that you are dead. It is only difficult for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.
