    Hello Fenix 5X users,

    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.

    9.71 Change Log Notes: Please send all bug reports to fenix5.beta@garmin.com, and indicate which model of the fenix 5 series you have in the subject line.
    • Added support for Connect IQ SDK v3.0.

      After the update my Fenix 5X gets about 2300 score from Tree Benchmark app. Not as fast as the software when the watch was new but apparently faster than the previous versions.

        We've been waiting since 6.0 :--)
        I'll check out the old scores in the app reviews...
        Thanks...

              Could you please add Latvian character support? It is so disappointing to have jibrish characters in messages/notifications

                Thanks Garmin! Definite improvement on battery. I went from 2+% per hour to .2%. Huge improvement. Also, the delay I was experiencing when moving from the watch face to an activity or widget was drastically improved. Thanks again!

                              Unfortunately, not in my case. Can you tell me what kind of wf and widget are you using?
