is it normal that the hr sensor always blink? even when the watch is taken off. that may be why the battery consumption is high
It probably happens after recording a training and probably the only way to fix it is to reboot after each training. I say "probably" because guys from Garmin here don't speak up very often about our prolems - with devices they support.
There are already topics here with the same issue.
Well, It does not resolve the issue. The HR sensor keeps blinking even after turning It off!! This behavior started with SW 3.60... How on earth can this update have passend QC?
3.50 broke my VO2Max updating. Now this very annoying bug... GPS is far less accurate than my VA3... My faith in this product is falling fast...
Even after turning off and on the watch the HR sensor keeps blinking continuously. It NEVER turns off in my case since SW 3.60... And the measurements are very unreliable. Today It measured 165 bpm while I was only zitting behind my desk.. Yesterday It recorded 1200 (!!!) active calorie because of incorrectly high heartrate reading... Ridiculous, because I had the day off and I did absolutely nothing else than some reading, cooking and watching tv. Vivoactive 4 estimated over 3200 calories for that day instead of 2300 it should appr. have been.
I don't trust the thing anymore and regret my purchase.. A shame, because my vivoactive 3 was a great watch!!
Maybe you have some other settings which triggers the HR sensor. In my case (3rd test today) it happens only after recording an activity.
Maybe MoveIQ is the cause? Do you have it enabled?
