There is a fairly large change log, listed below, but I think Garmin buried the lead here. This is a unified firmware for the fēnix 7 and fēnix 7 Pro, same for the epix. Which means that they have a unified firmware, so all the features that launched with the Pro models should now be available on the standard versions of these watches. Yay!
I’ve only had the time to look at a few of the things that I remembered from DCR’s videos, but clearly the “Hill Score” and “Endurance Score” widgets are showing up! Double Yay!
