Take couple slow days and BOOM, there’s another update to the Garmin fēnix 6. Love it! I’ve actually been running the RC with zero issues for about a week, so I think it’s totally safe to plop this guy on the watch and enjoy the new features. The Unfortunately, there’s no direct download link on the forums, so you’ll have to use Garmin Express if you want to force it officially. But unlike previous drops, they didn’t nuke the 11.10 RC download, so you can apply the beta way if Express doesn’t want to play along. What’s super interesting about the RC download is that the change notes hardly match, and that I can’t find any mention of the UI changes for the heart rate widget (which are still growing on me).
