  • For those of you who have encountered issues with Optical Heart Rate accuracy:

    As you can see from the change log notes, this version is only implementing fixes for indoor cycling. We have also been working on additional improvements for other use-cases, which should be available in the next few weeks.

    We’d love for this feature to be as accurate as possible. If you are still experiencing accuracy issues with Optical Heart Rate after installing this beta update, we would like to collect some information from you to investigate further. Please email the following details to [email protected]. Please note that we may not respond to your email unless we have further questions for you.

    • Please make the subject of the email: Fenix 6 - HR Feedback - your first name
    • Under what circumstances did you encounter poor HR performance?
      • e. indoor cycling activity, all-day tracking, hiking, etc.
    • Please attach the following files to your email
      • The relevant activity .fit file, if the issue occurred during an activity
      • The GarminDevice.xml from the Garmin folder
      • The Settings.fit file from Garmin\Settings
      • All files in the Garmin\Monitor folder
      • Any pictures/screenshots/links to information in Garmin Connect that help explain the issue
    • Please also let us know if we have permission to access your Garmin Connect account. This will allow us to investigate your report faster, if we identify that other data is necessary for investigating. You do not have to grant us this permission, but doing so will allow us to be as thorough as possible in our investigation.

    Thanks,
