      Weather widget showing bad data on the "Hourly" page. Last one or two entries show 1:00 Clear 0C 0% rain. In the example below there are two instances of 22:00.

            For sure the colours are nice

            The problem for me is that the VO2max ranges (indicated by the colours) do not match the ranges on the VO2max widget in Garmin Connect.

            The widget is correct according to the help, but the watch is wrong for example suggesting I'm in the middle of "Excellent" when actually only just above "Good".

            I would be interested to see what the screen shot of your widget from a dashboard in Garmin Connect looks like as it may only be an issue for my age range. Would you like to post it?

              What about fixing keys lock? Unlocking by any key holding without confirmation is useless.

                Also, the table has a range which matches your watch. Mine doesn't match any of the bands. Perhaps the bug is specific to my age range?

                    Normalized power from the fenix 3 disappears from the widget and report soon after upload, and possibly after viewing the activity. Training Effect doesn't appear at all. Normalized Power works fine with data from VIRB. Prior to viewing the activity I had one data point on the Normalized Power widget. After viewing the activity I went back to the report and it doesn't show any data.

                      8.35 left me without watch faces or widgets, and it reset the language to "english". No other languages available on the watch, not even after a 2nd installation of 8.35.

                        Sure. Here it is:



                        Looks like the colors match the watch; and I'm in the "Excellent" range on the watch, on Garmin Connect and on the table you cite. I'm a 67 year old male.

                        Are you sure you have all the variables in the "User Profile" on the watch, including Heart Rate Zones, set correctly?

                          Spot the difference...The bands don't look the same to me.






                          The green band straddles the middle point in the range. 41 looks like 41 on Garmin Connect but looks like 42 on the watch.
                          The superior band is much bigger than the Excellent band on Garmin Connect compared to the watch.
                          The red band is very small on the watch but takes up almost half the range on Garmin Connect.
                          Even if the watch only shows part of the range it still doesn't make sense because the bands do not have the same relative sizes.

                          Maybe the fenix 3 has some crazy non-linear mapping from VO2max to the scale, but it is more likely that they got the bands wrong vs Garmin Connect. The watch may be using an old table that has been updated since the fenix 3 was launched but the bands have not been adjusted.

                          For my age range the difference is more extreme. The fenix 3 puts me in the wrong band compared to Garmin Connect. The Garmin Connect plot matches the table in the manual however and is correct.

                            I guess I'm just more forgiving than you. I see a BIG "41" in both that tells me my VO2 Max value. I see a pointer in the blue "Excellent" bar on both. When I "read" either graphic representation, I conclude my VO2 Max is 41 and excellent. I really don't see a problem.

                            Poor is red on both, Fair is orange on both, Good is green on both, Excellent is blue on both, and Superior is purple on both.

                            Certainly some compromises were made to translate a 270 degree graph in Garmin Connect to a 180 degree graph on the watch, but I really don't see how that changes one's interpretation of the information presented.

                            Obviously, YMMV.

                              By the way, could you share pics of your VO2 Max on your watch and in Garmin Connect? Maybe I'm missing something.

                              TIA
