Garmin has announced new software and feature updates for select smartwatches, including Enduro 2, epix (Gen 2), fēnix 7 series, Forerunner series, Instinct 2 series and MARQ (Gen 2)1. These new features will help customers get even more from their device.

Some of the notable features2 in this free software release include:

Wrist-Based Running Dynamics: Measure running dynamics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and more right from the wrist—no app or accessory required.

Load Ratio: Track short-term to mid-term load ratio to help stay in shape and avoid setbacks.

Obstacle Racing Activity: Track run time, number of obstacles, heart rate and more during obstacle course events and record split times between running and obstacle sections while racing.

Acclimation Improvements: View altitude acclimation as a percentage and receive insights on how the body is reacting to the current elevation.

Targeted Adaptive Coaching for Cycling: Receive an entire week of daily suggested cycling workouts directly on a compatible smartwatch3. The workouts adapt to match a cyclist’s performance and the demands of upcoming events that are added to their Garmin Connect calendar.

The free software updates have started to roll out to compatible devices. Customers can update their smartwatch by enabling automatic updates from their device and syncing with Garmin Connect, or by using Garmin Express.
