Fenix 6 Series - 17.72 Public Beta

Hello Fenix 6 customers,

Edit (6/17 12:30 PM): Non-Pro models: We have identified a crash that occurs when scrolling past a CIQ widget, if the Widget Glances setting is enabled. For now, you can avoid this crash by simply disabling the Widget Glance setting (via Menu - Widgets). Our teams are working to resolve this issue as soon as we can. I apologize for the inconvenience.

At this time, we believe that Pro models are not affected by this crash. 

Our next beta version for the Fenix 6 series is now available! 

Please ensure that you are downloading the correct beta software for your specific device.

Instructions for installation are available below the change log on each of the above pages.
