Garmin releases Public Beta 10.22 as Release Candidate build for Venu 2 series with bug fixes
Garmin has released a new Public Beta update for the Venu 2 series, which now consists of the Venu 2, Venu 2S and Venu 2 Plus. Like the Instinct 2 series, Garmin has rolled out two Release Candidate builds within a few days. In the case of the Venu 2 series, Garmin released Public Beta 10.21, which contained two bug fixes:
- Fixed a bug where speed would be tracked incorrectly in SUP and Row activities
- Fixed a bug where a specific watch face would cause the device to crash after some time.
In the last few hours, the company has issued Public Beta 10.22, presumably because it observed critical issues in its predecessor. Confusingly, Public Betas 10.21 and 10.22 contain identical changelogs. Hence, it remains to be seen what elements Garmin has changed between Public Beta builds. Potentially, Public Beta 10.22 could be the next public stable update though, which should come with a full changelog.
If you have enrolled your Venu 2 series smartwatch on Garmin's Beta Program, you may have already installed Public Beta 10.21 or it may be the only update available to install. Typically, GCM takes 24 hours to deliver a new beta update, so you may have a few hours remaining before a notification to download Public Beta 10.22 arrives. Additionally, Garmin notes that it could be several hours before the update finish transferring from your smartphone to your smartwatch too.
