    Hello Fenix 5X users,

    We have new beta software ready for your upcoming adventures!

    Fenix 5X: http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...s.jsp?id=11665

    Note: Please allow for the updates to propagate across all servers. There is no need to post that the link does not work. It will after a bit of patience.

    8.54 Change Log Notes:
    • Added the Kayak app.
    • Added support for Connect IQ SDK v2.4.2.
    • Added the ability to save Stopwatch recording as an activity. Go to the Stopwatch control, and start the timer. Stop the timer, and select Done. You can then save your activity, which will appear in your History.
    • Enabled the Auto Set setting for Strength activities. To access this setting, go to your Strength Settings, and select Auto Set. When enabled, sets automatically advance during free Strength activities.
    • Enabled the Edit Weight setting for Strength and Cardio activities. To access this setting, go to your Strength or Cardio settings, and select Edit Weight. This setting will control whether or not you can edit the weight when editing sets.)
    • Fixed an issue causing an incorrect time to be displayed.
    • Fixed an issue preventing time zones with Arabic characters from being displayed in the Time Zone widget.
    • Fixed a potential crash when using Group LiveTrack.
    • Fixed an issue resulting in high cadence and calorie values when using some power meters.
    • Fixed an issue preventing Rep Counting activities from advancing correctly when the Lap key is disabled.
    • Fixed a potential issue causing the 'Wheel Size Computed' notification to appear frequently.
    • Fixed an issue causing the Elevation graph to not update frequently.
    • Fixed an issue causing some workout prompts from a Training Calendar to be repeated after completing the workout.
    • Fixed an issue where the grade data field was displaying incorrect data.
    • Fixed an issue where GPX files with a certain data format could not be parsed by the device and would display a blank map.
    • Fixed an issue with calendars details page where the title and location information were not displaying properly.
    Please send all bug reports to [email protected], and indicate which model of the fenix 5 series you have in the subject line.

    Looks like we are missing the promised "in a week" floor counting fix?

        The link takes me to 7.93 Beta, not the promised 8.54 Public Beta.
        What am I doing wrong?

          I do not think you are doing anything wrong. It looks like the update has not yet been posted. The link takes you to the old beta 7.93.

                  The correct link is https://www8.garmin.com/support/down...s.jsp?id=11666

                  Kayak may be nice, but I still miss orienteering. Would be really nice to have orienteering. Event though it might be just another "running" style app that is used to be able to automatically categorize it in connect.

                    Update doesn't work for me. I did the procedure but my FENIX5X did not update.
                    1. Download and unzip fenix_***Beta.zip
                    2. Place the gupdate.gcd file, found in the System_v*** folder, into the \GARMIN folder of the device
                    3. Place the gupXXXX.gcd file, found in the Sensor Hub_v*** folder, into the \GARMIN\REMOTESW folder of the device
                    4. Place the gupXXXX.gcd file, found in the GPS_v*** folder, into the \GARMIN\REMOTESW folder of the device
                    5. If you have a WiFi-enabled device, place the gupXXXX.gcd file, found in the WiFi_v*** folder, into the \GARMIN\REMOTESW folder of the device
                    6. Place all files found in the Text_v*** folder into the \Garmin\TEXT folder of the device
                    7. Disconnect from your computer and proceed through the update.
                    8. If you would like to revert to the last public release software, drop the gupdate.gcd file, found in the System_Backdate_v800 folder, into the \GARMIN folder of the device.
                    9. NOTE: If you revert to an older version of software, all of your settings will be reset to defaults.

                      You maybe downloaded a wrong file or the same firmware. It should work if files are downloaded correctly and transferred to watch iwthout issues.

                              @derechteklinke that’s entirely the point of pushing out the beta software publicly, to expose the new software to a greater range of usage cases and environmental combinations than Garmin can realistically do internally, and asking for bugs and issues to be reported back in by email (see post #1).
