Garmin has introduced an extensive software update, effectively enriching features of several watch models, including the Fenix 7, Enduro 2, and Instinct 2, aligning them with the capabilities of newer models like the Forerunner 965.
One of the notable updates includes wrist-based running dynamics, which provides a detailed breakdown of your running form. Via the Garmin Connect app, it reviews factors like vertical oscillation, ground contact time, vertical ratio, stride length, and cadence, enhancing the regular heart rate and pace data.
The Load Ratio stat, which Garmin first introduced in February, has also been incorporated in this update. It gives insight into your recent training load, comparing it with the past month’s workout intensity, offering valuable data for those who maintain strict and well-structured workout regimens.
An addition that promises to be a game-changer for cycling enthusiasts is the “Targeted Adaptive Coaching for Cycling.” Building on Garmin’s suggested workouts feature, it offers a week’s worth of personalized daily training sessions, attuned to the races and events logged in the user’s calendar.
Rounding out the significant updates is a new “Obstacle Racing activity.” According to Garmin, this can keep track of the number of obstacles navigated during a race, leveraging the watch’s motion sensors and barometric altimeter. This news is based on information provided by Forbes.
