  • I installed this on 4 Feb.  When I did it, it was a fresh factory reset, I also removed and added the watch from/to GarminConnect at the same time. 

    Before 4.10, I never had a problem with Bluetooth, now with 4.10 it is always disconnecting. I also noticed that the BodyBattery slowly declines after about a week and then never comes back, while the stress levels go up and up and never decline, even while sleeping. 

    Yesterday, 13 Feb, I did a complete reset to factory defaults on the watch.  I also deleted the watch from the GarminConnect App, and reinstalled the GarminConnect App.  Will see what happens, but I am disappointing in the updates.  The only firmware that has seemed to work with any consistantcy for me was, 3.10 (Which it came with).  I question the REMOTESW part of the upgrades, could one of those be causing these problems?  There does not seem to have been one this time, but I have seen a mix of all these problems with the other firmware I have used as well.  The only one that seemed to be stable was 3.10.  Here is a history of my upgrades.

    3.10 - Not sure what other firmware was.

    3.46beta-GPS 2.50 and ANT/BLE/BT 4.19

    3.52beta - Not sure what other firmware was.

    3.70 - Came with GUP3078-260.GCD and GUP3024-430.GCD which I assume are the GPS and BT updates?

    3.77beta - Not sure what other firmware was.

    4.00 - OTA, GPS is 2.70 and ANT/BLE/BT is 5.01

    4.06beta - Not sure what other firmware was.

    4.10 - OTA, GPS is 2.70 and ANT/BLE/BT is 5.01

    I will edit this post if I find more relevant info.
