Wrist optical HR sensor flashes permanently

The optical HR sensor in my Venu is constantly flashing even during charging after FW upgrade to 3.60. I think it's a bug since im my FR 645M the optical HR sensor disables automatically few seconds after connecting charging cable and afterwards automatically enables when the watch is on my wrist again.

  • I had the same problem.  Contacted Garmin support and was advised my Venu needed replacing. I replaced the watch and the same thing happened on updating to software version 3.60. Definitely a bug introduced with this update. Switching off the watch does temporarily fix the issue, but it returns as soon as you start a timed workout. Hopefully next update will rectify this.
