  • Both HR and PulseOX seem to be working with this update. Finally I can start enjoying my watch!

    Largely disappointed in Garmin, the lack of transparency, communication and the overall way they handled this defective batch crisis tho (support chat had no idea of what's going on, my support ticket / email is still without an answer, no official announcement to tell us that it is a software error and will get fixed by an update, etc)

    You are? I'm not. Note that not everyone's watches had this failure, it may have in fact been a very small percentage (that just appears to be a large percentage because people with devices that aren't working are far more vocal than those with working devices).

    Every product has some failures with some units at launch-time; remember the iPhone that would lose cell signal if you held it normally, and Apple's response was to tell everyone to hold it differently or buy a phone cover to make it work? Nobody has a 100% success rate on products shipped. That's why warranties are a thing.

    That said, people reported the issues here on the forum, and Garmin investigated it and released a fix within only a few days, and pinned the links and instructions to the top of the forum.

    Their support staff may not have had all that info... that's not unusual. Sure, it would have been ideal if Garmin's engineers had given all the correct info to the tech support side, and while that didn't happen unfortunately, you still got your answer and a solution one way or another right?
