Garmin has started rolling out Beta Version 13.15 for several smartwatches, including the Fenix 7 series. Beta Version 13.15 introduces over a dozen changes, including a new feature and numerous bug fixes.

A new beta update has arrived for Fenix 7, Enduro 2, Epix 2, Quatix 7 and Marq 2 series smartwatches, over a week after Garmin released Beta Version 13.14. While this week's update is another Beta Version 13.1x build, it contains over a dozen changes from Beta Version 13.14. Please note Garmin has only reached 25% rollout, at the time of writing.

However, Beta Version 13.15 should reach enrolled and eligible smartwatches within the next day or two. Additionally, it is possible to trigger the downloading of Beta Version 13.15 even if your smartwatch is not within the target rollout percentage. For reference, you can see whether your smartwatch is eligible for a new beta update by heading to Menu - System - Software Update - Check for Updates.

According to Garmin, Beta Version 13.15 adds a PulseOx battery tip and improves touch input responsiveness in the maps app. The company has dedicated most changes to bug fixes though, including two that should resolve system crashes in certain situations.
