        I bought my VA3 during the initial US release back in September. I believe it was FW 2.40. I had a lot of the minor issues others were seeing, but nothing major until 2.90. Since that update I've charged my watch 3 times and I've had the watch restart after disconnecting every time. Last night was the straw that broke the camel's back. This time as it restarted it got stuck in the boot loop. All I had was the blue triangle on the screen and the watch would vibrate every few minutes. When I connect it to my computer, it doesn't "see" it as an external drive. I let the battery die overnight and tried connecting to my computer again this morning. It immediately goes back into the boot loop once connected to power. With the sensors constantly disconnecting, GPS recording when it's not suppose to and vise versa, and deciding I'm not a big fan of touchscreens, I not going to wait for Garmin to get things right. I'll contact Garmin Monday for an exchange and then give the watch away to someone who has more patience that I have. I purchased the FR935 from Amazon and it'll be delivered on Monday. I hope Yone and I were the exceptions and not the start a new problem.

          just curious what are u using to recharge?
          i noticed now with v2.90, when its plugged into my usb port it doesn't detect it as a drive... instead charges with the clock showing.
          i have to manually start garmin connect then it'll only open up.
          and yea, all settings are still the same as its always been.

            USB to computer. I too was seeing the watch face while charging. It looked like a split screen with the watch face and charge percentage. I didn't notice if the computer recognized the drive prior to the boot loop because I was only charging at the time and not opening Express or Connect.
