An update for the Garmin Fenix 6, Enduro, Tactix Delta, Quatix 6 and MARQ smartwatches, Alpha version 23.73, is now available. The new software includes tools such as the Exercise Load graph and the Backcountry Snowboarding activity. Plus, bug fixes for the Recovery and Dog Tracking widgets are provided.

Garmin has released the Alpha version 23.73 update for its Fenix 6, Enduro, Tactix Delta, Quatix 6 and MARQ smartwatches. While the new software is available for all models of the Fenix 6, like the 6s and 6s Pro, the MARQ Aviator is not eligible for the Alpha.

The software adds a new activity, Backcountry Snowboarding, and an Exercise Load graph, which indicates the impact of your workout on your body. There are several updates, such as the UI of the nautical units menu, the altimeter calibration has been enhanced with weather forecast data, and the activity profile limit has been increased to 75. Bug fixes include the resolution of a UI issue found in the Recovery Widget. Plus, a problem that caused distances to be displayed in yards and not miles in the Dog Tracking Widget has been fixed; this tool allows you to track a pet wearing a tracking-and-training collar.

You need to install the Alpha update manually; you can download the software and installation instructions for each smartwatch here. The Alpha comes with a Sensor Hub update, version 22.09, and a GPS update, version 6.3, which can be installed after the main software. Alpha version 23.73 follows a recent update, version 23.00, for the same watches, which added a major update to Training Status widget and new Acute Load and Heat Acclimation graphs.
