The Garmin Fenix 6 Beta now has a sleep calculation widget and a sleep score

Garmin has released a beta version of the Fenix 6 range that includes on-device sleep computation. This software version also includes a slightly redesigned user interface and the regular bug patches.

The Garmin Vivoactive Beta includes a sleep calculation widget and a sleep score for the Garmin Fenix 6. (promotional material)

Garmin watches can all track sleep. However, you are unable to access the data on the device itself. It can only be viewed by opening the Connect app or website dashboard. We’re not sure why, as some more obscure statistics, such as stress, have their own widget.

Garmin promotional materials have previously displayed on-device sleep tracking widgets. However, no Garmin watch has got the functionality so far. This should all change very soon for owners of one of the Fenix 6 gadgets.

9.92 was just recently released into the wild.This adds on-device sleep calculation through the use of a new Sleep widget.

We’re not sure if this affects the sleep calculation or if everything remains the same. But you do get some additional information, such as a sleep score that ranges from 1 to 100. The widget also displays sleep time (divided into Deep, Light, REM, and Awake) and sleep insights.

To display the sleep data on your watch, go to the menu and select Widgets/Edit/+Add/Sleep. Here are the download links for the firmware upgrade.

Gamin has also somewhat improved the user interface for the following widgets: Heart Rate, Training Status, Intensity Minutes, and Floors climbed. Other revisions include an auditorium control correction for Powerbeats Pro, an alarm label translation, and more. In addition, the updated GPS firmware is provided.

On-device sleep tracking has been long overdue, so it’s a welcome addition. Or that it will appear after the software is released from beta to the public. Let’s hope the feature reaches the less expensive watches as well.
