Fenix 6 Series - 18.80 Public Beta

Hello Fenix 6 customers,

Our next beta version for the Fenix 6 series is now available! Yes, this is a public beta not a public release candidate. Yes, we're aware that it says 18.80 Grin.

If you installed 18.79 yesterday before we pulled it down, there was an issue discovered with the app list and certain activities being removed. This has been fixed in 18.80. If you were affected by this bug, you will need to restore defaults on your watch (Menu > System > Reset > Reset Default Settings) before installing 18.80 in the link below.

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.
