My ‘Fitbit Inspire HR’ Is Now At Firmware Version 34.20001.60.39.

Given that I do have a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus I do not use the Fitbit Inspire HR much. Yesterday, I charged it up and synched it … just to keep it ‘alive’. That is when I was told about the update. It took a fair amount of time to download — over Bluetooth. I just left it downloading and went to bed.

It was up and ready to roll in the morning. So, just wanted to make sure that you knew that there is new firmware.

My Storied Camera Saga — 13 Camera In 4.5 Years.

The good or bad news is that I have plateaued. I am not going through cameras at a fast rate anymore. Plus, following the acquisition of my Google Pixel 2 for Christmas 2017 I no longer feel the need to have two cameras — a big one and a compact. The Google Pixel is my 2nd camera. So, just need one full-frame camera at any one time.

I kept my Sony a7 II for 690-days and took 30,455 pictures with it. I also kept the mega-zoom Nikon P900 around for long time but did not use it much after the first 9 months or so. The zoom was nice but I had become fond of BIG sensors.

Getting to know my new, 3-week old, Canon EOS RP. Need a couple more lenses. Plan is to keep it for at least a year, if not more. It seems pretty capable. Goal is to hang onto the lenses. That is why I went (bcak) to Canon.

Garmin Adds ‘Incident Detection’ To Fenix 5 Plus, Forerunner 645M & Vivoactive 3M.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and read. Received via e-mail today.

Click to ENLARGE. Already in Android ‘Garmin Connect’.

Incident (a.k.a. ‘Fall’) Detection‘ was pioneered, with great success, on the Apple Watch 4 last year.

Garmin offered it, for the first time, a few weeks ago, on the new Forerunner models, such as the Forerunner 945.

Today, I received an e-mail saying it was also available on the Fenix 5 Plus, Forerunner 645M & Vivoactive 3M. I was pretty chuffed in that I do have a Fenix 5 Plus.

I, of course, immediately went looking for it. IT WAS THERE. It must have been in the 7.10 Firmware I downloaded to the watch April 29, 2019. I just checked. I am at 7:10 (cf413a9).

Support is also in ‘Garmin Connect’. I am at 4.18. Not sure when that was updated to that level.

But, I can confirm, and you can see the pictures, that I have it on my Fenix 5 Plus.

This is good. I am glad.

Feel bad for Fenix 5, FR 645 and Vivocative 3 owners. It can’t have been a storage issue. So, can’t see why they are only offering it on watches that have the additional storage (for music).
