    I guess you checked the settings of your Fenix as for most alarms, you can select between none, sound only, sound+vibro, vibro only ?

    Yes, jipe, I can choose between sound only, sound + vibro, vibro only. I chose a lot of time in different types of alerts: alarm, alert timer notification point is approached, and others. And when I choose the sound + vibro, then the only sound is. When I select a vibro only then do nothing but pop-up that worked notification.

    It turns out only I have a problem. The rest of all the alerts are working correctly.

    Re: Garmin fenix - A Review in Several Parts

    FW 2.80 Sensors Always On problem:
    I have only 1min sensors data after update to 2.80. Used to be up to 48 hour on barometer.
    Anybody has same problem?

    EDIT:
    After changing a profile everything looks OK. So just in case change a profile back and forth...

    "Interval" alerts you every X time (every 1h, etc) so you can take a break, report wereabouts by radio, water the dog, etc
    The problem is, that when I tried "Till sunset" nothing happened. No tone, no vibration. Are there any tricks, or is it just dead feature?

    I have the same issue. I set sound + vibro and I am not getting any vibro for the notifications of the 1km autolap..

    Re: Garmin fenix - Understanding Altimeter settings

    After reading many things about this issue, and asking questions to GARMIN, this is my understanding of how altimeter settings work, but I am sure there are different opinions out there.
    Please, those of you that think to have understood the behavior of the Fenix concerning Elevation, confirm/correct this table

    Thanks



    SETTINGS READINGS
    Auto Calibration Baro. Plot reported pressure figure reported elevation figure
    ON FIXED corrected to sea level Only considers GPS information
    ON AMB. PRESSURE real measurement Interprets any change in pressure as a change in elevation. Uses GPS information to correct the elevation through a sofisticated algorithm patented by Garmin
    ON VARIABLE corrected to sea level It works as FIXED when no movement is detected (or GPS off, I presume) and as AMB. PRESSURE when movement is detected
    OFF FIXED corrected to sea level Only considers GPS information
    OFF AMB. PRESSURE real measurement Interprets any change in pressure as a change in elevation. No GPS correction
    OFF VARIABLE corrected to sea level It works as FIXED when no movement is detected (or GPS off, I presume) and as AMB. PRESSURE when movement is detected
