SPM Reading Spikes during Rowing Activity.


When I track my rowing activity

(in a boat on water) I get regular spikes in the reading. Can this be fixed? Garmin Venu 2, software version 19.05, worn on wrist.



  • I've got exactly the same issue on my fēnix 6. When I contacted Garmin support, I was informed that this was a known bug.
    It is related to the auto-lap feature. It seems that the vibration of the watch at every lap is causing the spike. Turning of the auto-lap for rowing will result in a normal stroke rate graph.
