can I use Physio True Up to restore load/vo2max from garmin connect after master reset?

I had to use master reset (complete reformat) on a fenix 5 after the gps went bad and would never lock/track no matter what I tried

so I've lost vo2max and weekly load average, etc.

garmin-connect seems to know that info, and I've even restored the past week or two of previous FIT files into \ACTIVITY but watch refuses to use that data and tells me to wait a week

any way to solve this or garmin just doesn't care even 13 firmware versions later?
