This update brings more flexibility in the data configuration which allows simultaneous display of more information:
The top and bottom data fields now include the option to show the Active bar.
A configurable date option was added for the data fields 3-10.
The date field is fully configurable using Garmin app and can display all the data that were previously possible in the fields 13-16, in any order, plus additional characters to separate the data (e.g. space, /, -, . , etc.).
To configure the date, you need to enter any of the following letters in the ‘Date format’ setting:
d = day number without leading zero D = day number with leading zero m = month number without leading zero M = month number with leading zero y = 2-digit year Y = 4-digit year n = day name (according to system language) N = month name (according to system language) w = ISO week number without leading zero W = ISO week number with leading zero a = AM/PM
Any other character (e.g. – / : . ) will be displayed if it is available on the watch.
For example, you can use the following formats:
“n N d” → Fri Aug 24 “n D.M” → Fri 24.08 “d/m [W]” → 24/8  “Y\M\D” → 2018\08\24 “m-d-y” → 8-24-18 “n D (w)” → Fri 28 (34)
The highlight/line for the date field shows progress towards the end of the week, according to the ‘first day of the week’ set in Garmin Connect User Settings.
To make space for a long date you can set the opposite data field to “Off”.
This way of showing the date frees up the data fields 13-16 for other information. The available options (depending on the device) include:
– Notifications counter – Active alarm counter – Calories – Active calories – Floors – Active minutes (day) – Active minutes (week) – Wrist HR (updated once a minute) – Wrist HR (updated once a minute or every second on gesture) – SpO2 – Internal sensor temperature – Humidity – Chance of precipitation – Battery % – Solar charging %
Beaufort wind speed unit has been added.
On round watches, if one of the top or bottom data fields is set to “Off”, the icon of the opposite field is shown in the middle, not on the side as before.
