Garmin does not want to publish applications such as freediving, diving, base jump, etc ...

Here a message from Garmin about that : App Aproval Exceptions

No, because it does not have a pressure sensor.

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.
