I can’t seem to get a data file on what was contained in this update. I can care less about Alexa. I want a bug fix and updated features list. All I can see at this point are the short comings for this update. No new Activities, The battery indicator is missing, or is broken. I’m hoping the Heart Rate inaccuracy’s are fixed. BRAGI please tell us what’s in this update. I really don’t want to hear about Alexa. Alexa can only play my Amazon prime music and only if I have my phone with me, other than that under IOS it’s worthless to me.I was among the first to jump on the costly Starkey edition… So many things are not working well. I can’t workout with any confidence that the HR monitor is working properly. Connectivity to my Apple watch is iffy. Disconnects and loss of control plaque this setup. Poor activity choices (No cross fit, No strength training. Please!!! I implore you to communicate with your supporters/Customers.
I was looking forward to the battery indicator too, should I even bother trying to update? Who cares about Alexa anyway…
seems if you’re running Android it’s not available yet… like itranslate. so only bother if you’re running IOS
