It shows after battery % in data fields 5 – 8 (see picture)
It will only work on devices supporting System 5
NOTE: Apparently currently many devices with System 5 on it are not able to display this data. If you don’t see it showing on your watch even though you have System 5, please wait for a firmware update from Garmin.
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.
1) HR graph Shows the graph with the current HR reading that is updated once a minute (less battery drain).
2) HR graph + live Shows the graph with the current HR reading that is updated once a minute or every second on gesture (more battery drain).
The graph time span is adjustable between 1 and 4 hours (this setting is only available through the Garmin app).
The graph level adjusts dynamically to the current minimum and maximum recorded over the selected time span, so it is easy to see the variation.
This shows the minimum and maximum HR reading during the graph time span selected.
hr average + resting
This shows the average HR value calculated over the graph time span plus the resting HR, which is either a seven day average resting heart rate (on CIQ 3.2.0 or higher), or the resting heart rate available before CIQ 3.2.0.
Wide data fields
If a data field is set to ‘Off’, the opposite data field will take the whole width of the screen.
The offset setting is only accessible through Garmin app.
There are 4 options provided, using different Garmin API:
1) raw: Ambient (local) barometric pressure as measured by the internal pressure sensor. The data is the temperature compensated information read directly from the internal sensor.
2) ambient: Ambient (local) barometric pressure as measured by the pressure sensor. The data is smoothed by a two-stage filter to reduce noise and instantaneous variation.
3) sea level: Barometric pressure calibrated to sea level. Since pressure varies dues to several factors, a GPS-based altitude must first be obtained, then the ambient (local) pressure is measured by the pressure sensor before conversion to a calibrated barometric pressure value.
4) history: Pressure read using Sensor History Iterator. Garmin does not seem to specify what kind of reading this is (or I have not managed to find it in the documentation), but based on empirical tests it is likely to produce closest results to Garmin’s barometer widget readings.
The pressure unit setting is only accessible through Garmin app.
