Screen went bad, happened to anyone Else?

Short and Sweet:

Today I ran, and then did some strength training. Both worked flawlessly as always with my Fenix 5. Then today after lunch in noticed that the screen was no longer responding. After a hard reset, the screen just displayed these lines. The watch still vibrates and beeps as if the screen was fine, and does reset (without any garmin logo on boot up) but the screen just stays the way it looks in the photo below. Anyone else get this problem? I didn't bang or drop the watch today, just normal use. Garmin was fantastic on the phone and only took about 5 minutes to get a new unit out to me. Hopefully I could still get runs turned on and by guessing where the activity is!

  • Swap it out ... my Fenix 5 replacement suffers from altimeter issues - static discharge seems to cause it. Also saw my screen corrupt when removing my jacket. It straightened out (the screen) when the watchface updated (Garmin built in one). Bet there are some watches with defective ESD protection.
