My Garmin 6 Sapphire is stuck trying to start up.
I turn it on and I see the triangle symbol for ~20 seconds, then it shows some sort of cog wheel loading symbol for 2-3 seconds, then it goes to a screen saying Garmin and a copyright notice for a final 2-3 seconds. Then it just goes back to the triangle symbol again and the whole cycle repeats continuously.
if I hold the power button down for ~15 seconds I can power it down whilst it’s doing all this, but when it starts, it just kicks off the whole cycle again.
I've tried holding the back button down as it starts up and instead of going to the copyright page, it goes to a menu page for ~1 second asking if I want to go back to the default settings, but then it dies and goes back to the triangle screen and starts cycling through the boot sequence before I can do anything useful.
I didn’t do anything to trigger this, I just glanced at my wrist over lunch and noticed it was on the triangle screen and cycling through the boot sequence. I have tried charging it for a few hours and that hasn’t made any difference.
Any suggestions or is my Fenix effectively bricked?
I suspect I won’t be able to take it back to Runner’s Need for a replacement given that the U.K. is currently on Coronavirus lock down. Are Garmin even fixing/replacing watches at the moment?
Only has my Fenix for 6-7 months.
