Garmin Fenix 6 Gets Connect IQ System 5

 

 

If you want to update your Fenix 6 to get CIQ5 support then you’ll need beta version 20.82 available here:

There are several other, small tweaks in this package, perhaps the most noteworthy being the inclusion of HRrest in True-Up which synchronises HRrest across all your Garmin devices.

 

Change Log for version 20.50 => 20.82
