Loud Squeak When Completing Each Mile or During Alert on Bluetooth

After using my new watch for a couple of weeks,I have suddenly noticed that the "mile updates" while running will alert me with a sudden obnoxious loud squeak vs. a normal beep that my watch previously exhibited. Is anyone else noticing this?

  • I have noticed this too.  It happens whether there is music or not.  It reminds me of a squeaky chain on a swing at a playground. It's consistently the same for me, so I just assume it's what Garmin has decided iit should sound like.  I don't like it, but I'd much rather have them fix the problems with music controls on headphones with version 3.0.

  • I experience this noise too, it's almost uncomfortable to hear, sounds like a very out of tune whistle. Hopefully it's something Garmin can address with a software update.
