- Fixed an issue with debug logging
I suspect we're under the average. I don't know of a review with a good opinion about the sleep tracker across Fenix/Forerunner/VA*
Garmin want change it. It begann with my try from a FR235 -> VA3. Sleep stats are horrible and on the 235 they are fine (~2018).
For me it is important and i like that. But they never changed it and i guess the wont do this in future.
Additional it looks like SOP2 is changed to only "OnDemand". Pointless and an other decission past the customer
Ok, so since 4.60 Ive discovered that body battery no longer works. Even after a restful sleep of 7-8 hrs, body battery stays @5% no charge or drain throughout the day, regardless of naps or workouts. While on 4.60, I had to factory reset the watch before it worked and when I did, Body battery jumped to 80% 2 days after that reset, body battery got stuck on 5% again so I left it.
Yesterday, I upgraded to 4.70 hoping that would've fixed the problem. But as of this morn, I'm back on 5% and no rest logged, even though my sleep was logged accurately. So this clearly a serious problem. Body battery used to be one of the most accurate stats on the watch. When i logged a 100%; it meant I felt Invincible., when i logged 10% or less, it meant I was about to pass out . Now, I just did a factory reset while on 4.70 and its miraculously jumped to 60%.
I'm seriously loosing faith in the Garmin brand. I charged to a 100% yesterday during the 4.70 upgrade and by this morn I've lost 30% battery. at this rate, I'll get 3 days max with all the low battery drain settings. I currently have only the MARQ captain-like watch face (with the second hand disabled), single run data field and battery widget, everything else is default.
I still get CIQ error screen when scrolling to the hydration widget. It seems unstable, sometimes it works displaying "synching", and other times it doesnt work displaying error screen.

The measurements I get for PulseOx are all over the place. I've messed with it a bit including having it on "all day", so not just during sleep hours. Being awake, sitting at my desk I'll get measurements below 90%...then measure it again and it'll be like 99% a few minutes later. Either it can't get a reading, or measurements are all over the place. Hard to figure out what a baseline is for myself.
Yeah...sleep tracking is pretty bad. It can't even get basic things right like when I go to bed. A lot of times it'll tell me I went to bed hours earlier than I actually did. Or I'll wake up in middle of the night, walk to the bathroom, and then go back to sleep - the sleep log will say I was asleep the entire time. I've struggled with sleep issues my entire life so I've tried a few different sleep trackers. Fitbit is far and away the best in terms of sleep tracking. If Fitbit supported connecting to a chest strap heart rate monitor, I would have stayed with Fitbit. Part of the reason why I got the VA4 was because of PulseOx during sleep...but like my earlier post indicates...it's so unreliable that it's not very useful.
