My affair with my Garmin has been short lived before. I am happy that my refurbished GF405 us stil working after one year. That’s a good year compared to the other two Garmins I owned. I hope this lasts for another year.
My first Garmin Forerunner 405 got busted after six months. I had it returned and Garmin gave me a refurbished unit after paying some fees. The refurbished one is what I am using right now.
My second Garmin was a Forerunner 310XT. It was a gift from Quennie for my birthday. Three months later, we were robbed and they took away the Garmin along with other running stuff I have. It was a terrible incident and I was contented to run without any watch for several months until the refurbished unit arrived.
So one year with a Garmin FR405 is a blessing already. I know of other users who have less than a month with their Garmin. The Garmin FR305 seem to be more durable.
My Garmin still works fine but I am having problems with the power. It seems that the battery drains so fast even if I am not using it. I had them fully charged in my previous runs. After the run, the battery would be at 90% or less. That is good. But the unit will be off by the afternoon even if I haven’t used it at all.
I wonder what’s wrong. Probably it wasn’t fully charged yet so I am leaving it charged overnight for my run again tomorrow.
I wish this lasts for another year. Despite the scars on its bezel, it still is my running best friend.
But then again, I can’t wait to try the new Garmin Forerunner 610 Touchscreen. This could be the sign.NOW AVAILABLE. TAKBO.PH COTTON TEES AND HOODIES. CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO ORDER.
