Hot off the press today we have new beta firmware for the Fenix 6 series (not 945) which we can all try at our own risk.

There are a few tweaks here and there as well as the hotly anticipated DogTrack visibility changes. I’m just of out to buy a dog to get that one to work…oh, and a Fenix 6 too as mine has gone walkabout with a ‘friend’.

Being serious, there is an intriguing change namely “Updated the UI for Body Battery and Training Status widgets,” and this follows on from some recent updates to the sleep analysis widget. Indeed ever since the (awesome) widget glance abilities were introduced, the usability of the individual widgets has received a new lease of life.

Those of your looking at the image above might wonder what has changed. Indeed, nothing seems to have changed from what I can see of the widget and perhaps also of the widget glance. Image above, Source: Garmin forums – user: morey000…many thanks.

The image below is my image on the F6 from last year…as you can see it looks identical. Hmmmm

Hmm. Interesting. Or seemingly ‘not interesting at all’ if nothing is different. Or is it..?

Well, in fact, I think what we might (aka will) soon see are some VERY INTERESTING changes to how the AnTL and AeTL are being used. That’s about all I can say right now.

Interesting, let’s wait and see.
Thanks for the hint

Read about the training recommendations on the new Edge device, can you give any indication if your hint about training loads has something to do with something similar coming to the F6?

Interesting, DCrainmaker in one comment to edge 1030+ says that there is no plan to migrate it to F6 (at least he doesn’t know about it). Let’s see who’s right

I’m 99.462% sure that the feature IS designed for triathlon (bike+run) so, errr, other than that, i dunno.

There could be an existing plan that never comes to light and there could be a new plan that is started tomorrow. And I am sure there are lots of plans all over the world that neither he nor I know anything at all about. 😉

i take your point tho. just having fun 😉

of course it could be heading for the 955 LTE
