Hi. I wore my watch for a run in the rain on Sunday. Within 36 hrs the screen had developed a white circular shape at around the 5 o’clock point. Since then the screen has been faint when notifications come through. I see other people have had similar issues.
The watch was bought in the states in March-18.
will garmin support with a repair or replace?
my guess is that they'll replace it with a refurbished unit due to it being out of it's 1 year warranty.
The screen on my fenix 5 went blank just last week. I highly suspect it's because of static for my case. Cold and very dry here and I was wearing synthetic clothing at the time which only made the static electricity even worse.
I sent mine in and will be getting a refurbished unit at a cost just under that of a forerunner 45. I debated getting a newer garmin but it seems all the models have their issues.
