Garmin fēnix 7, Epix, Tactix, Quatrix, Firmware 11.28 Released

I’ve been running 11.28 and the Alpha/Beta versions leading up to it for a long while. So far it’s been great. Huge change log, mostly bug fixes, but a few notable feature additions as well. Big ones to call out are Jet Lag Adviser (which launched on the Marq), support for Connect IQ 6, and support for Stamina on bike activities.
