My Garmin 235 offers various activity types which can be enabled or disabled under the Activity Profiles sub menu. Until today, it offered five settings: Run, Run Indoor, Bike, Bike Indoor and Other. Each can be individually switched to Show or Hide.

Today the Other setting has disappeared completely, both from my main Activity menu and from the Activity Profiles sub menu.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks, Stu, yes, but I haven’t found this issue raised there yet. I’ll ask there too.

OK - issue resolved by resetting the watch to Factory Defaults.

Turns out the the Bike Indoor option which I assumed had always been there had most likely (somehow!) replaced the Other option. After the reset I am back to:
Run
Run Indoor
Bike

Other

[I’ll leave this thread here in case anyone else has this problem.]

I have a FR230 with all five options so that doesn't sound correct. Unless Bike Indoors was added in an upgrade.

I’m guessing slightly because I really don’t know whether Bike Indoors was there as a hidden option all along. I had never been to the relevant Activity Profiles screen before and only found it while trying to resolve this.

What is for sure is that Other disappeared completely!

I actually don't remember a time without all 5 TBH. I know Garmin can change things sometimes with a software upgrade but if you haven't upgraded recently then sounds like a watch issue.

Got something to say?
