Frequently Asked Questions
Garmin has introduced a limitation on the depth measurement of all models of the last generation (Fenix 7 series, Forerunner 945 and all recent models) preventing the reading of depths over 3m.
Moreover, it seems that this limitation has been carried over to the Fenix 6 series in the latest update (21.00).
Garmin explains the water rating http://www.garmin.com/en-GB/legal/waterrating of these devices as well as water rating definitions http://www.garmin.com/en-GB/legal/waterrating-definition.
Touch screen watches are not yet really suitable for aquatic activities, as contact with water generates false touches. In order to avoid this problem, it is recommended to create a shortcut to lock the screen when using Apnea.
Garmin does not want to publish applications such as freediving, diving, base jump, etc ...
Here a message from Garmin about that : App Aproval Exceptions
Apnea is available in English and French.
No, because third-party applications run in a virtual machine that completely isolates the application from the rest of the system.
The new models (like Fenix 6, Forerunner 945, Venu, etc...) refer to a maximum pressure value of ~1.7Bar, i.e. a maximum measurable depth of ~7m.
