December 24th, 2010...the day that Garmin and I become bffs.
|Ahh what a great day|
August 22nd, 2011...the day my bff decided to turn on me.
|Boo what a sad day|
I have been fixed in this position baffled for the past few hours, staring at the dang watch hoping that it suddenly decides it still wants to be friends with me and wondering why the heck it has turned on me.
I don't know what the heck is going on with my garmin.
The last day that it worked properly was Thursday on my long run, and during the last few miles it alerted me that the battery was low.
On Friday I decided to run without the garmin but plugged it in to be charged as before I left the house and unplugged it a few hours later when it said the battery was full.
Saturday morning as I was getting ready to head out the watch said that the battery was low again, which was odd. I figured that maybe my memory was off and I didn't really charge it like I thought.
Then Sunday came and I couldn't get it to turn on before my run. When I came home I finally got it on but it wasn't making any sound, then it wouldn't turn off.
Today as I am getting ready to head out for my tempo, the watch
COMPLETELY LOSES IT'S MIND!!!
The screen kept freezing, the timer wasn't complying, and the numbers were moving erratically in inconsistent patterns. When I plugged it into my computer it told me that there are issues with the device and the computer isn't recognizing it.
What the hell is going on with the stupid thing???
I've read online of some other people having issues with the Garmin Forerunner 110 woman's watch, but mine has never acted up until the past few days. The owner's manual is no assistance and I'm not exactly a gadget genius, so I don't really know what to do here?! I have only had the watch since December and logic tells me that a watch that costs nearly $300 should last more then 8 months.
So if you have had Garmin Forerunner 110 issues before...what did you do?
Did you take it back to the store? If so did they repair it and how long did it take?
Did you have to shell out $300 more for a new one?
