The Fenix 6 has received a major upgrade that adds new sports modes and improves the accuracy of Garmin's flagship watch. While all eyes are on the upcoming release of a new Fenix 7, it appears that Garmin is still putting attention into its current Fenix gadget. Version 20.30 of the software (which is also being sent out to Garmin Marq) has a long list of bug fixes and is a must-have for any Fenix user. Garmin announced a significant upgrade for the Fenix 6 in August 2021, which included features like Rate of Perceived Exhaustion (RPE) and fitness age indicators but this is perhaps larger. Most notably, the latest update includes several more sports to track, bringing the total number of Fenix activities to a mind-boggling number. But, to the pleasure of pickle ballers everywhere...whoever they are, Garmin has also introduced HIIT (about time), snowshoeing, tennis, paddle, and pickleball. Aside from new sports, the Fenix 6 tracking algorithms have received a lot of attention. The lactate threshold tool, which measures your endurance performance, as well as the acclimatization feature, have both been upgraded. Yoga and breathwork practitioners may now utilize a chest strap to test HRV as well. The pulse oximetry feature has also been enhanced, with the user interface revamped, and the Fenix will notify you if it is having trouble taking a measurement owing to arm movement. There is also a slew of small bug patches, most of which we've never seen before but will surely enhance the Fenix 6's experience. Garmin has unveiled the new Fenix 7 as a major upgrade.
