You should be able to find the latest firmware news here.

My 20-day old Garmin Vivoactive 3 has been running on the new 2.80 firmware for the last 6-days, since December 29, 2017.

It definitely has prolonged battery life — maybe DOUBLED it.

On Monday, January 1, 2018 the software did have a conniption, but I was able to recover by doing a soft reset.

Still early days.

My first Garmin Vivoactive 3 died after 15 days. So, I am still rather leary and ‘jumpy’.

I am monitoring battery life and I will keep you posted.

Happy New Year.
