The Vantage V2 3.0.16 firmware release is now available for download via FlowSync on your computer or via the Flow app on your mobile.
Route and elevation profiles, change route on-the-fly and track back
With route and elevation profiles you know your current position, how much you’ve ascended or descended, and how much you still have to go - so you can be prepared for whatever lies ahead. You’ll also able to switch your route on-the-fly, just pause your session and choose a new route from your list. Lose yourself in the thrill of adventure, never doubting that you will find your way back with the track back feature allowing you to navigate back to your starting point via the route you came.
Always-on outdoor features
New always-on outdoor features include the Location and Sunrise & Sunset watch faces. The Location watch face includes an always-on altimeter, a compass and your location coordinates so you know exactly where you are and where you’re heading. The Sunrise & Sunset watch face gives you your current location’s sunrise, sunset as well as twilight times.
HR sensor mode, backlight brightness setting and music controls watch face
HR Sensor mode allows you to use your watch as a heart rate sensor to view your heart rate data via BLE on gym equipment or mobile apps for example. We’ve also added the option to adjust the backlight brightness. Note that this setting doesn’t affect the backlight activated with the LIGHT button, it only affects the backlight triggered when pressing any other buttons or when turning your wrist to look at your watch. In addition, the music controls are now conveniently located on a dedicated watch face for easy access when not training.
