good evening i have a forerunner 45 while i was running it turned off completely while its battery was at 60% i have had it for 2.5 years
For further support, please reach out to your local Garmin Product Support team:
I tried this and it worked fine on my first run and on my next run it turned off 5 times within 7 minutes
I spoke to Garmin via the chat on their website, I shared this forum thread, and they have said…
Garmin Spain told me to send it to them to be fixed, but because it's out of warranty, they want me to pay EUR108.90.
It seems like a LOT of people have the same issue, with a +/- 2 year old FR45S. I told Garmin they should recall the products, or offer owners a free repair. Otherwise it seems like built in obsolescence.
I'll post again if they reply.
I have the forerunner 45 for 4 months now I have the same problem as others have while the battery is at 80% and the battery goes to 60% and you have an activity on the watch (running) it turns off I turn it on I go for a run and it turns off again after 10 minutes I turn on the watch and it shows 20% after 10 minutes it rises to 40% I go to put it to charge it shows 60% battery.
This is also happening for me -- over the last two runs, my watch has unexpectedly turned off when it has had 60% or more battery. When I plug it back in it shows that the battery is still at the same amount.
